Fantasy. Fiction. Literature. With unforgettable characters, a sweeping backdrop, and passionate storytelling, this is a fantasy debut to rival that of Robert Jordan. Filled with adventure and bloodshed, pageantry and piracy, mystery and menace, Assassin's Apprentice is the story of a royal house and the young man who is destined to chart its course through tempests of change. Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal household by his father's gruff stableman. An outcast whose existence has forced his father to abdicate his claim on the throne, Fitz is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in the young man's blood is a heritage of magic, the talent called the Skill, as well as another, even more mysterious ability. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts and leave behind the zombie-like husks of the townspeople to prowl the countryside, Fitz is growing toward manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission, a mission that poses as much a threat to himself as it does for his target-for Fitz is a threat to the throne...but he may also be the key to the survival of the kingdom.… (mais)

Informação Sobre a Obra

Assassin's Apprentice por Robin Hobb (1995)

  1. 124
    A Game of Thrones por George R. R. Martin (Tjarda, Patangel)
  2. 70
    The Crystal Cave por Mary Stewart (LiddyGally)
    LiddyGally: Both "autobiograhical" accounts of the life of a man with powers of a magical kind, told from boyhood to manhood. Compelling writing makes for a great read and memorable story!
  3. 60
    Dragon Prince por Melanie Rawn (Kassilem)
  4. 50
    Flesh and Fire por Laura Anne Gilman (Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: If you enjoy the Master/apprentice relationship and the coming of age, rags to relative riches story lines. Both involve young boys who are capable of things that they do not yet understand and must harness their powers towards a greater end.
  5. 40
    Transformation por Carol Berg (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: For epic fantasy that is rarely makes things easy for its protagonists
  6. 30
    A Companion to Wolves por Sarah Monette (Kassilem)
  7. 30
    Across the Nightingale Floor por Lian Hearn (soffitta1)
    soffitta1: A coming of age story, a noble boy with an uncertain future.
  8. 20
    Le Vaisseau magique, tome 1 : Les aventuriers de la mer por Robin Hobb (Patangel)
  9. 20
    Devices and Desires por K. J. Parker (NovaStalker)
    NovaStalker: Both books that have no feel good quality about them at all. If you finish them and their respective series and don't hate life, love, everyone and want to kill yourself you're either incredibly well adjusted or a sociopath. That's a recommendation.
  10. 20
    Imager por L. E. Modesitt (Dragget)
    Dragget: Similar coming-of-age themes where the plot follows the main character as he discovers and develops his skills against a background of political intrigue.
  11. 20
    Inda por Sherwood Smith (humouress)
    humouress: Both series share the similarity of a country defending itself from invaders from the sea with whom they in fact share their ancestry.
  12. 21
    Poison Study por Maria V. Snyder (joyfulgirl)
  13. 10
    The Book of Unholy Mischief por Elle Newmark (mene)
    mene: Both books have a similar setting: Told by a narrator when he is already old and has lived his life, he talks about his childhood. Both main characters lived in the "important building" of the city (though in Assassin's Apprentice it's a fantasy world and in The Book of Unholy Mischief it's Venice in Italy), both boys go to town every now and then to meet his friends (and a girl), and both are apprentices of someone/something they cannot tell anyone else (except for a few people). Both books contain a bit of magic, though of a different kind.… (mais)

Recently I heard some reviews stating this as a modern classic of fantasy; after finishing the book, I cannot help but agree. Fitz is a brilliant character, with much nuance in his personality and ethics, and the reader becomes completely sympathetic to his struggles. His relationships to other characters, both positive and negative, are both deep and believable; the cast throughout the whole book are well-constructed, and characters both male and female are deep and well-written. The book's descriptions are lavish and beautiful, without bogging down the story; the dialogue is well-written with clear subtext and intent behind every word; the magic system is innovative and fundamentally intriguing, a novel take I've never seen before. The plot itself is brilliant, full of depth and politicking without reaching the absurd complexity of the ASOIAF political layout, and I found myself hooked throughout. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and will be reading the rest of the trilogy in future. ( )

Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb has been on my Kindle for a very long time. The SFF KIT January challenge--Epic Fantasy--was all the encouragement I needed to read it. it definitely met the description as Hobb has created a world of magic and fantasy and mystery with "Boy," the bastard son of the King-in-waiting at the center of it. He moves into a precarious position at the court, learning to navigate with sometimes begrudging help from others. I was pulled in and wasn't sad I woke up early this. morning to finish it. It is the first of a trilogy and I hope to get to the next two sooner rather than later. ( )

The first half of this book was a slog for me. A lot of setup as our main character, Fitz, recounts his childhood from age 6 to 12 in painstaking (and laughably unrealistic) detail. I was ready to abandon this until the plot finally started going somewhere and then I was hooked. I wouldn't say all the setup in the first half is necessary, but you are rewarded for making it through with thrilling twists in the plot. A few revelations I totally saw coming, others were just plain shocking to me (I was flabbergasted when the wine Fitz and Rurisk drank was poisoned and Rurisk died. I had to read it again to make sure I read it right.). There really aren't a lot of lovable characters (hence the GoT comparisons) but most are sufficiently three-dimensional. What really stood out to me in this book was the (eventual) plot, the world building, and the political machinations.

Sometimes books start great and then lose steam. This is the opposite and it left me wanting to give it four stars, even though on balance I think it should be three.

My other criticism is that it seemed like the author was trying to create a world with some gender equality (e.g. the firstborn inherits whether male or female) but I think overall she failed. Molly, Patience, Jonqui, Kettricken, and various queens of the past have interesting parts to play in the story, but I think this fails the Bechdel Test. And I was annoyed that every duchy was ruled by a duke. Out of six, you'd think at least one would have a duchess worth a mention.

Oh and, Esperanza, if you're reading this review, take note: YOU DO NOT WANT TO READ THIS BOOK. DOGS ARE HARMED. REPEAT: DOGS ARE HARMED. ( )

Despite some titles similar to those of the original 6, the French version of the Farseer books splits the 2 trilogies into 13 books. This is 1 of 13 and it is the only book that is exactly the same as the original one. Make sure you combine only with identically split parts of the series.
