Nearly 20 years ago, Robin Hobb burst upon the fantasy scene with the first of her acclaimed Farseer novels, Assassin’s Apprentice, which introduced the characters of FitzChivalry Farseer and his uncanny friend the Fool. A watershed moment in modern fantasy, this novel - and those that followed - broke exciting new ground in a beloved genre. Together with George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb helped pave the way for such talented new voices as Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson, and Naomi Novik.
Over the years, Hobb’s imagination has soared throughout the mythic lands of the Six Duchies in such best-selling series as the Liveship Traders Trilogy and the Rain Wilds Chronicles. But no matter how far she roamed, her heart always remained with Fitz. And now, at last, she has come home, with an astonishing new novel that opens a dark and gripping chapter in the Farseer saga.
FitzChivalry - royal bastard and former king’s assassin - has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire.
Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past...and his future.
Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one....

Strong story & characters, has problems though
I'll be brief:
This series is a must if you enjoy Hobbs style and/or are invested in the earlier books featuring Fitz et al.
However, while re-listening to the earlier series and going through this one I strongly dislike these two aspects:
Firstly, the speaker Elliot Hill is in my opinion a step down in comparison the one we had in earlier works. I find the voice he uses for the fool especially atrocious.
Secondly, I have grown to detest Hobbs incredibly slow pacing and the extreme introspective nature of her characters.
Hope this is helpful to some of you. If you can get over the slow pacing I'd recommend it.

OK Story, Annoying Speaker
The story is OK, but nothing much happens. It appears to be an extremely long introduction into the main story which starts in the next volume.
But the speaker is just annoying. All female characters sound as if he was making fun of them, and almost all main male characters are given an extremely husky voice most of the time. Even the most ordinary conversations between two persons as a result take on a dramatic, almost foreboding character. And whenever people are "Skilling" to each other (a kind of telepathy), the speaker whispers - even where the text says teh characters do the equivalent of shouting.
