NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Nearly twenty years ago, Robin Hobb burst upon the fantasy scene with the first of her acclaimed Farseer novels, Assassin’s Apprentice, which introduced the characters of FitzChivalry Farseer and his uncanny friend the Fool. A watershed moment in modern fantasy, this novel—and those that followed—broke exciting new ground in a beloved genre. Together with George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb helped pave the way for such talented new voices as Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson, and Naomi Novik.
 
Over the years, Hobb’s imagination has soared throughout the mythic lands of the Six Duchies in such bestselling series as the Liveship Traders Trilogy and the Rain Wilds Chronicles. But no matter how far she roamed, her heart always remained with Fitz. And now, at last, she has come home, with an astonishing new novel that opens a dark and gripping chapter in the Farseer saga.
 
FitzChivalry—royal bastard and former king’s assassin—has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire.
 
Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past . . . and his future.
 
Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one. . . .

  • Robin Hobb Cover

    Robin Hobb è lo pseudonimo adottato dal 1995 da Margaret Astrid Lindholm Ogden (1952), una scrittrice statunitense. È autrice soprattutto di romanzi fantasy, ma ha pubblicato anche diverse opere di fantascienza. Dal 1983 al 1992 ha pubblicato col nome di Megan Lindholm opere che si rifanno al fantasy contemporaneo (come per esempio la saga The Ki and the Vandien Quartet), mentre quelli pubblicati come Robin Hobb sono caratterizzati da uno stile epico-medievale che porta il racconto su un piano più reale (ricordiamo la saga de L'assassino, pubblicata in Italia da Sperling & Kupfer, e che termina con L'ultima caccia, uscito nel 2017). Insieme a George R.R. Martin, è una delle firme più amate del fantasy contemporaneo e ha vinto i premi più... Approfondisci
