I cried. ( )
The first half of this book brought me so much joy. The last chapters just gave me sadness.
If you like the characters, you will love this book. If you don't like the characters, how did you get to the seventh book in the series?
I liked that there was a focus on relationships and trust more than anything else. It was wonderful!
I was more than happy to go back to Fitz and Nighteyes after reading the Liveship Traders trilogy. That trilogy was really good, but I missed them so much. I am also very excited because the Fool was always present in this book and I love him and I want to know more about him. The relationship between those three is the best thing I have ever read about.
I think I have never read a book with so many cats in it. Cat lovers will love it! Or maybe not since most of the cats are not very nice.
I only didn't like the information dump that occured near the end and there were several pages of it. However, that is not enough to take away my love for this book. I honestly think is my favourite in the Realm of Elderlings series so far.
I have high expectations for the Tawny Man trilogy as a whole.
I can't get enough of Hobb. Fitz is now in his mid thirtys, and dealing with events in life that really spoke true to me. Fool is just as darling as ever, and getting Fitz into more troubles with saving the world. A good portion of this book is Fitz and Fool recapping their lives since Assassin's Quest while drinking brandy in front of the fire. Was this mundane and boring? Hell no! I wanted to stay in this cozy comfort throughout the entire book. A slow burn with a great finish.
A fine start to another foray into Robin Hobb's world of Wit and Skill. I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
In no way can this book be considered the beginning of a standalone series. It borrows locations from the Liveship Traders trilogy, which is fine, but it also relies heavily on the events of the Farseer books, and I don't think you'd enjoy this if you hadn't enjoyed that.
The page count seemed oddly high for such a direct, unconvoluted little chase-story, but the pages flew by quickly - it felt small in scope as there's only one POV.

Fantasy. Fiction. HTML:â??Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobbâ??s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.â?â??George R. R. Martin
For fifteen years FitzChivalry Farseer has lived in self-imposed exile, assumed to be dead by almost all who once cared about him. But now, into his isolated life, visitors begin to arrive: Fitzâ??s mentor from his assassin days; a hedge-witch who foresees the return of a long-lost love; and the Fool, the former White Prophet, who beckons Fitz to fulfill his destiny.
Then comes the summons he cannot ignore. Prince Dutiful, the young heir to the Farseer throne, has vanished. Fitz, possessed of magical skills both royal and profane, is the only one who can retrieve him in time for his betrothal ceremony, thus sparing the Six Duchies profound political embarrassment . . . or worse. But even Fitz does not suspect the web of treachery that awaits himâ??or how his loyalties will be tested to the breaking point.
Praise for Robin Hobb and Foolâ??s Errand
â??[Robin] Hobb has created a world brimming with detail and complexity [and] once again proves herself a full master of the epic fantasy.â?â??Tulsa World
â??Splendid . . . Despite some truly wrenching twists, there is a welcome sense of new begi
