    New York Times best seller

    Named One of the Best Books of the Year by Buzzfeed and The Independent

    Ranking alongside George R. R. Martin as a groundbreaking master of fantasy, Robin Hobb delivers the second book in her long-awaited Fitz and the Fool trilogy.

    The harrowing adventures of FitzChivalry Farseer and his enigmatic friend the Fool continue in Robin Hobb’s triumphant follow-up to Fool’s Assassin. But Fool’s Quest is more than just a sequel. With the artistry and imagination her fans have come to expect, Hobb builds masterfully on all that has gone before, revealing devastating secrets and shocking conspiracies that cast a dark shadow over the history of Fitz and his world - a shadow that now stretches to darken all future hope.

    Long ago, Fitz and the Fool changed the world, bringing back the magic of dragons and securing both the Farseer succession and the stability of the kingdom. Or so they thought. But now the Fool is near death, maimed by mysterious pale-skinned figures whose plans for world domination hinge upon the powers the Fool may share with Fitz’s own daughter. Distracted by the Fool’s perilous health, and swept up against his will in the intrigues of the royal court, Fitz lets down his guard . . . and in a horrible instant, his world is undone and his beloved daughter stolen away by those who would use her as they had once sought to use the Fool - as a weapon.

    But FitzChivalry Farseer is not without weapons of his own. An ancient magic still lives in his veins. And though he may have let his skills as royal assassin diminish over the years, such things, once learned, are not so easily forgotten.

    Now enemies and friends alike are about to learn that nothing is more dangerous than a man who has nothing left to lose.

    Praise for Fool’s Quest

    “A complex tapestry of adventure, betrayal, destiny, and unrelenting peril... Hobb’s expertise is evident as always.” (Publishers Weekly)

    “Glorious and beautiful storytelling... Hobb lets rip with revelations, treachery, vengeance, sword fights and full on magical mayhem.” (SciFiNow)

    “If readers have any doubt that Robin Hobb is one of the finest writers in the fantasy genre, then they haven’t read any of her work.” (SFFWorld)

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Hobb finds a way to always show us more details of the universe she’s been building over the course of the four previous series.... The friendship of Fitz and the Fool brings danger to them both, but it’s one of the most touching in fantasy fiction.” (Library Journal, starred review)

    What a sad waste of a good story

    It is utterly unbearable to hear the continuing story of those wonderful lands being read by someone, who apparently hates all of the characters, portaying them all as whiny, disagreeable beings. His use of an undefinable mix of a fake french-german-russian-ish accent, while making him sound like a wheezing, pathetic old man with bronchitis when portaying the fool is an insult to this character and to all who care about these stories. Maybe someone should have let him know, that the fool is not called that because he is an idiot. Also, if a reader chooses any kind of accent, he should be sure that it fits the character and that he can actually master the accent he chooses and when chosen, then stick to one of them. Half the characters sound like heavy smokers with throat cancer and utterly fake accents and dialects. Unbearable and disappointing.

    Bisschen langatmig & zu gewalttätig

    Ok, ich bin seit Assassins Apprentice dabei und natürlich will ich wissen, wie es weitergeht! Aber irgendwie zieht sich das Ganze jetzt endlos und viel Entwicklung gibt es nicht mehr, oder zumindest kaum überraschende Entwicklungen. Warum muss es unbedingt eine Trilogie werden 🙄...
    Ach ja, und persönlich hätt ich auch die Gewalttätigkeiten nicht unbedingt noch grausamer haben müssen als in den ersten Serien eh schon war. Ich werd mich trotzdem auch durch den letzten Teil durchwurschteln, vielleicht aber doch schriftlich, weil:
    Der Sprecher ist nervtötend. Seltsame Akzente, viel zu übertrieben.

    OK and slow story, but horrible speaker

    The story moves along VERY slowly.
    The speaker is just horrible. He is extremely eager to demonstrate how many different accents he is capable of, but that is just totally unnecessary and annoying.
    As another commentator has already noted: The voice and accent that he gives to the fool are just atrocious.
    The same is true for the voice he gives to Shade and some other characters. The women sound as if he was making fun of them. Can't he let these people just converse normally????
