    FANTASY with archetypes galore

    Every thing about this fantasy works. The plot is intricately planned and the resolution is satisfying. My criticism is with the publisher who I imagine forced the book to be split into three so we have to go through boring blah blah blah recaps before we can get on with the story

    Very good indeed

    A, for genre, quite new taking on fantasy set in a time equal to 1600-1800 one can asume. Robin Hobb is phenomenal in writing in the small perspectiv and the characters is very very well developed. Even though this story has a classical "save the world by magic" story the approch on it is unique. Through the tales of many "small" people - that has all the good and bad charcteristics that ordinary humans has, of which many are very unlucky, endure much hardships and have to choose the best of many bad choices - is she telling an epic story with all the classical fantasy element that a reader might want. Put not one but several love stories on top of that as well as the atropolgic dive in to two very differenr cultures that is on collision course. All brilliantly written as well, I migth add. I highly recomend this serie. And even though I liked the liveship serie as well as the dragon keeper serie this i rigth up there with the assassins quest serie! That is a very high praise to come from me...

    Soldier's son trilogy

    Excellent reading. I could not put it down. A good tale of love, adventure and magic. I found that this story was written for anyone who can dream of the rewards for those who can imagine surreal make-believe in the settings of ancient eras where magic abounded. Very pleased to have had read this story.

    It's just okay

    I bought this trilogy (Not one book at a time) because of my love for her Fitz and Fool books. I did not enjoy the Soldier Son stories. They are puzzling, and you don't really get to like any of the characters. If you are interested, I suggest buying the first book in the trilogy to see if you like this world.

    Long and unrewarding.

    An interesting world. But the main character is boring and incompetent. Each book consists of 30 chapters of every character looking the answers directly in the face and not skiing anything. Then in one chapter something happens and everything is fixed without the characters having to do anything. A very boring read.
