Review: Fool's Quest

Publisher: Harper Voyager
I was so excited to see this was out....but I'm sure you all know my love of Hobb and Fitz by now...
I do have one downer to mention on this book...and well this series in general...I really don't like Bee. I have been rather non-plused by her voice and her story. I find her boring and well, intensely dislikeable...sorry!!!
Love the front cover! Don't want to give anything away for spoilers but wahhhhhh!! You will all see!!!
I'm going to try not to talk about the plot btw, as I'm sure no one wants this ruined, so this will be a short review!
There are so many revelations in this novel and so many suspicions I've held not only for Fitz and Fool novels but other characters in other Hobb books were confirmed. One in particular I was desperate to have confirmed and it was!!! If anyone else was pleased by this do let me know!!!!
The book filled me with anguish from start to finish and I got so so drawn in to the emotion. I think it's partly Hobb's glorious style and my deep deep love for the people of these books. I love them all (even Bee....ish) in their own special ways and feel like I am one of them. Fitz is still my one true love though, as he has been part of my life for 13 year!!!
I will say that towards the end I started to panic that not only will this be the last Fitz based series but it will be Robin Hobb's last series...too much is being neatly tied together. PLEASE WRITE MORE MS HOBB!
Oh and a word of advice. If you haven't read the previous books, I mean ALL the Robin Hobb books in the back catalogue, DO NOT READ THIS THIS TRILOGY FIRST! IT WILL RUIN THINGS FOR YOU AND NOT ALL OF IT WILL MAKE SENSE!
Love this book, Love Hobb, Love Fitzs, LOVE READING!
