‘Fantasy as it ought to be written’ George R.R. Martin The people of Getty's town remember the death of their cemetery soldier vividly. They remember believing him guilty of unspeakable crimes, condemning him, and then watching as other men of his unit beat him until he no longer drew breath. But Nevare Burvelle didn't die that day, though everyone believes they saw it happen. He was cornered by a power far more intractable than any angry mob. When he was a boy, the magic of the Specks – the dapple-skinned tribes of the frontier forests – claimed Nevare as a saviour; severing his soul in two, naming his stolen half Soldier's Boy and shaping him into a weapon to halt the Gernian expansion into their lands and save their beloved ancestor trees. Until now Nevare has defied the magic, unable to accept his traitorous fate. But the magic has won: it has extinguished his once golden future, devastated his family and has now turned his own people against him. Faced with endangering the only loved-ones he has left, Nevare has no choice but to surrender to its will and enter the forest. But surrendering to his Speck destiny is only the beginning of his trials. Before he submits completely, Nevare makes one desperate last attempt to deter the Gernians from the Barrier Mountains without causing them harm. But the magic accepts no compromise. Exhausted, Nevare can no longer suppress his traitorous Speck self, Soldiers Boy. Losing control, he becomes a prisoner in his own body; able only to watch helplessly as his other half takes Soldier's Boy is determined to stop the Gernian expansion at all cost, and unlike Nevare, he has no love, nor sympathy for his spirit-twin's world.

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
