Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father's gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz's blood runs the magic Skill--and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.… (mer)

Berättelsen om Fjärrskådarna. Mördarens lärling av Robin Hobb (1995)

  1. 114
    Kampen om järntronen av George R. R. Martin (Tjarda, Patangel)
  2. 60
    Kristallgrottan av Mary Stewart (LiddyGally)
    LiddyGally: Both "autobiograhical" accounts of the life of a man with powers of a magical kind, told from boyhood to manhood. Compelling writing makes for a great read and memorable story!
  3. 60
    Dragon Prince av Melanie Rawn (Kassilem)
  4. 50
    Flesh and Fire av Laura Anne Gilman (Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: If you enjoy the Master/apprentice relationship and the coming of age, rags to relative riches story lines. Both involve young boys who are capable of things that they do not yet understand and must harness their powers towards a greater end.
  5. 40
    Transformation av Carol Berg (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: For epic fantasy that is rarely makes things easy for its protagonists
  6. 30
    Över näktergalens golv av Lian Hearn (soffitta1)
    soffitta1: A coming of age story, a noble boy with an uncertain future.
  7. 30
    A Companion to Wolves av Sarah Monette (Kassilem)
  8. 20
    Devices and Desires av K. J. Parker (NovaStalker)
    NovaStalker: Both books that have no feel good quality about them at all. If you finish them and their respective series and don't hate life, love, everyone and want to kill yourself you're either incredibly well adjusted or a sociopath. That's a recommendation.
  9. 20
    Imager av Jr. L. E. Modesitt (Dragget)
    Dragget: Similar coming-of-age themes where the plot follows the main character as he discovers and develops his skills against a background of political intrigue.
  10. 20
    Inda av Sherwood Smith (humouress)
    humouress: Both series share the similarity of a country defending itself from invaders from the sea with whom they in fact share their ancestry.
  11. 10
    Le Vaisseau magique, tome 1 : Les aventuriers de la mer av Robin Hobb (Patangel)
  12. 21
    Poison Study av Maria V. Snyder (joyfulgirl)
  13. 10
    The Book of Unholy Mischief: A Novel av Elle Newmark (mene)
    mene: Both books have a similar setting: Told by a narrator when he is already old and has lived his life, he talks about his childhood. Both main characters lived in the "important building" of the city (though in Assassin's Apprentice it's a fantasy world and in The Book of Unholy Mischief it's Venice in Italy), both boys go to town every now and then to meet his friends (and a girl), and both are apprentices of someone/something they cannot tell anyone else (except for a few people). Both books contain a bit of magic, though of a different kind.… (mer)

Second time reading the Assassin's Apprentice and I'm taking my 4 star rating up to 5. Hobb is an imaginative world builder and as I was reading this book my mind kept taking me back to other books in the series and how this world continued to expand. A fantastic start to the adventures of the beloved FitzChivalry and the Fool. ( )

This is the first book written by Hobbs. It is the beginning of a long relationship with FitzChiverly Farseer.

Fitz is a royal bastard. Dumped at the doorstep of his father at the age of 6. He is taken in, and handed over to the Stable Master, Burrich. A warm, loving relationship is formed, until other people begin to infringe on Fitz's life. It becomes apparent that Fitz is a "carrier" of both magics of the Relm, The Will and The Skill. King Shrewd , his grandfather, brings Fitz into service to be trained as an Assassin. The story becomes a coming of age story, along the way there are wonderful characters who enter and impact Fitz's world.

I am in the midst of another of Hobb's trilogy's The Soldier Son Trilogy Bundle, and I must say the writing in that one is much better. For me this first book of her's dragged at points, but I know her writing skills improve so I will continue the series.

This is a book for those of you who like a little magic, and character driven plots. It is believable and the characters are lovable ( )

Good book, the protagonist needs a hug. Also : Three dog deaths? that's excessive. ( )
  Zellder | Jul 21, 2021 |
I enjoyed all of Robin Hobb's books. They will not change your life but if you enjoy fantasy they are worth reading. ( )
  101ReasonsWhy | Jul 12, 2021 |
I liked the narrative and how the plot develops. I love a book when I get to connected to a character or feel myself in their shoes. 🙂 ( )

Despite some titles similar to those of the original 6, the French version of the Farseer books splits the 2 trilogies into 13 books. This is 1 of 13 and it is the only book that is exactly the same as the original one. Make sure you combine only with identically split parts of the series.
