A heralded writer of epic fantasy, Robin Hobb has given readers
worlds within worlds in her heroic Farseer and Liveship Traders
trilogies. Now she takes the final step in the breathtaking trilogy
of the Tawny Man, as the tale of FitzChivalry Farseer comes to an
epic end. Rife with boundless adventure and unforgettable
characters, "Fool's Fate" is destined to become a classic of the
Assassin, spy, and Skillmaster, FitzChivalry Farseer, now known
only as man-at-arms Tom Badgerlock, has become firmly ensconced in
the queen's court at Buckkeep. Only a few are aware of his fabled,
tangled past--and the sacrifices he made to survive it. And fewer
know of his possession of the Skill magic. With Prince
Dutiful, his assassin-mentor Chade, and the simpleminded yet
strongly Skilled Thick, FitzChivalry strives to aid the prince on a
quest that could ultimately secure peace between the Six Duchies
and the Outislands--and win Dutiful the hand of the Narcheska
For the Narcheska has set the prince on an unfathomable task: to
behead a dragon trapped in ice--the legendary Icefyre, on the
island of Aslevjal. Yet not all the clans of the Outislands support
the prince's effort to behead their
legendary defender. Are there darker forces at work behind the
Narcheska's imperious demand? As the prince and his coterie set
sail, FitzChivalry works behind the scenes, playing nursemaid to
the ailing Thick, while striving to strengthen their
Skill--ultimately bringing his unacknowledged daughter into the web
of the Skill magic, where the truth must finally unfold.
The quest emerges amid riddles that must be unraveled, a clash of
cultures, and the ultimate betrayal. For knowing that the Fool has
foretold he will die on the island of ice, FitzChivalry has plotted
with Chade to leave his dearest friend behind. But fate cannot so
easily be defied.
