NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED AND THE INDEPENDENT * Ranking alongside George R. R. Martin as a groundbreaking master of fantasy, Robin Hobb delivers the second book in her long-awaited Fitz and the Fool trilogy. The harrowing adventures of FitzChivalry Farseer and his enigmatic friend the Fool continue in Robin Hobb's triumphant follow-up to Fool's Assassin. But Fool's Quest is more than just a sequel. With the artistry and imagination her fans have come to expect, Hobb builds masterfully on all that has gone before, revealing devastating secrets and shocking conspiracies that cast a dark shadow over the history of Fitz and his world--a shadow that now stretches to darken all future hope. Long ago, Fitz and the Fool changed the world, bringing back the magic of dragons and securing both the Farseer succession and the stability of the kingdom. Or so they thought. But now the Fool is near death, maimed by mysterious pale-skinned figures whose plans for world domination hinge upon the powers the Fool may share with Fitz's own daughter.  Distracted by the Fool's perilous health, and swept up against his will in the intrigues of the royal court, Fitz lets down his guard . . . and in a horrible instant, his world is undone and his beloved daughter stolen away by those who would use her as they had once sought to use the Fool--as a weapon. But FitzChivalry Farseer is not without weapons of his own. An ancient magic still lives in his veins. And though he may have let his skills as royal assassin diminish over the years, such things, once learned, are not so easily forgotten. Now enemies and friends alike are about to learn that nothing is more dangerous than a man who has nothing left to lose. Praise for Fool's Quest "A complex tapestry of adventure, betrayal, destiny, and unrelenting peril . . . Hobb's expertise is evident as always."--Publishers Weekly "Glorious and beautiful storytelling . . . Hobb lets rip with revelations, treachery, vengeance, sword fights and full on magical mayhem."--SciFiNow "If readers have any doubt that Robin Hobb is one of the finest writers in the fantasy genre, then they haven't read any of her work."--SFFWorld… (mer)

In volume 2, Fitz has taken the Fool to Buckkeep Castle through one of the portal stones for healing, unaware that in his absence his home has been attacked and his daughter Bee abducted. As with book 1, the pace is glacially slow and it takes a huge chunk before he finally realises something is wrong at home. Also as with book 1, the viewpoint switches between him and the kidnapped Bee.

The pacing isn't helped by the endless going over things the reader already knows. Possibly the recaps of events in previous books is designed to help those who either haven't read those or can't recall them after a long interval. The main issue for me was the amount of wallowing that Fitz does, and the constant going over how he had failed to do anything to protect his daughter with his previous refusal to engage soldiers to provide a guard on Withywoods. There is some action which is welcome when it comes but there is such a lot of dallying around to get through in order to reach it.

The friendship between him and the Fool isn't very convincing either. Granted that the Fool is physically and mentally damaged from the torture he received, but he seems more like someone who is manipulating Fitz rather than being his friend. And there is a lot of sexual violence in the story where various characters are raped, almost raped or forced to relive the experiences when their suppressed memories are restored. Parts of the story are touching and it is written with the author's usual skill, but there is so much padding in the constant repetition and in characters waiting around to hear news that it dragged severely. So I can only rate it at 3 stars. ( )

I have absolutely zero complaints about this fantastic series so far. Read my review for book one and know that this book continues on with the excellence. One of the best fantasy series I've read in years! I can't wait until book three comes out next week!

SO FABULOUS. MUST READ! ( )

This was a very nostalgic book for me, having "known" the characters for so long. Many tears were shed, both happy and sad. I wish I had the next book right now.

And LOVED having Motley the crow as a character. Crows are so cool. :) ( )
