DescriptionThe triumphant conclusion to our three thrilling fantasy series, from the author of the bestselling Farseer and Liveship traders trilogies. The moving end to the tale of the Farseers, in which kingdoms must stand or fall on the beat of a dragon's wings, or a Fool's heart. A small and sadly untried coterie - the old assassin Chade, the serving-boy Thick, Prince Dutiful, and his reluctant Skillmaster, Fitz - sail towards the distant island of Aslevjal. There they must fulfil the Narcheska's challenge to her betrothed: to lay the head of the dragon Icefyre, whom legends tell is buried there deep beneath the ice, upon her hearth. Only with the completion of this quest can the marriage proceed, and the resulting alliance signal an end to war between the two kingdoms. It is not a happy ship: tensions between the folk of the Six Duchies and their traditional enemies, the Outislanders, lie just beneath the surface. Thick is constantly ill, and his random but powerful Skilling has taken on a dark and menacing tone, while Chade's fascination with the Skill is growing to the point of obsession. Having ensured that his beloved friend the Fool is safely left behind in Buckkeep, Fitz is guilt-stricken; but he is determined to keep his fate at bay, since prophecy foretells the Fool's death if he ever sets foot on the isle of the black dragon. But as their ship draws in towards Aslevjal a lone figure awaits them...

Reviews for Fool's Fate
- Top review
For Fans of Fitz!
Boy, is Robin Hobb good at fanservice! The good kind, not the gratuitous female nudity kind.
Although it drags in parts, a lot of this book -mostly the second half- is just filled with SQUEEEE. Even the ending, if you ship that way. (I don't. WTH.) There was a pleasant revist after revisit of old friends, and tying up those loose ends. (bends. lends. rends.)
This is probably the best of the Tawny Man part of this story. (I refuse to think of them as separate trilogies.) For Fans of Fitz! by Betule Sairafi
