I was at the bookstore recently and discovered that Robin Hobb has started another trilogy about Fitz! If you don’t know about my unending love for this character (and his story!) check out this post from 2013. And then go check out the books.
Anyway, I admit I’ve fallen down on reading lately (the major exception being Marie Brennan’s A Natural History of Dragons and The Tropic of Serpents) and haven’t read anything by Robin Hobb for what feels like (and probably is) years. Quick reason why: her Liveship Traders trilogy did not capture me the way her Farseer trilogy did, and after the Tawny man trilogy I thought her days of writing about Fitz were over. Now that I know otherwise, I am ready to reinvest in the southern portion of her world (I have a strong belief that one ought to read books in the order they are written – and I’m glad I do that because Hobb is a master of weaving tales together). So I am embarking on the quest to read her Rain Wilds books.
