A triumphant ending to the trilogy!
This is a story of pain, of adventure, of intrigue and, ultimately, of love. Love of country, love of monarch, familial love, romantic love and brotherly love. Most especially love between the closest of friends. A fateful connection binds these two friends. It's a relationship all at once heart-rending and tender, pleasing and difficult.
This book has most of the characters that we have come to love in these two book series, as the life of FitzChivalry Farseer comes to a triumphal climax. All six books in the Fitz series are well worth reading and wonderfully narrated.
This trilogy is read by James Langton and he comes as close to the most excellent reading of the first series by Paul Boehmer as I could have hoped. He always portrays the character with just the right level of emotion.
Well done Robin Hobb! I'm looking forward to a great experience with the next Fitz trilogy that begins with "Fool's Assassin."

Continuation, not a stand alone.
I liked it a lot and think the narrator did a good job. Not the greatest story ever, and sometimes dry and lengthy ramblings about mundane events, but good and long continuation of Fitz and his adventures. It resolved well finally, and has some great moments. I like long stories that are will written and descriptive. Hobb does well in this regard.
