"Oh my...."
5 stars"

This concluding novel of the Fool trilogy (the whole story is actually is made of 9 books), is totally, completely, ultimately, and wonderfully perfect. Fitz is poised, balanced totally, between love and loyalty, between the Fool and Chade, between truth and honesty. The whole truth is known to few, but those few, hold almost all of Fitz's secrets between them, and time has come for it all to come out… Burrich, Molly, Patience, Lacey, all believe him dead, Dutiful, Chade and Kettricken believe he is the uncrowned King, but as always, it is the Fool, Lord Golden, Lady Amber that will do the honours, and make us cry. Oh, so very wonderful…

Description

The 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...
