Ebook Deal: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
I wasn’t writing reviews yet when I read Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb, so unfortunately, I have nothing easy to point you to let you know how highly I rate her books. But this is one of the first series I will recommend to people. Robin Hobb does an amazing job with characters and creating a real emotional attachment between the reader and the events in the book. If you haven’t read this yet, the ebook versions (both the Nook and the Kindle) are only 99 cents right now. Seriously, go pick up a copy .
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 sectetly 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.
