“Fantasy as it ought to be written” — George R. R. Martin
The Farseer Trilogy’ is a modern fantasy classic, and author Robin Hobb is rightly celebrated across the literary world for her endlessly compelling characters and mastery of political subtleties. With millions of fans, the adventures of Fitz and the Fool are the epitome of everything truly great epic fantasy is capable of: stories told across a vast landscape, with the intimacy and emotion of the greatest literature. This special collector’s edition, brings together Assassin’s Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin’s Quest, with a series of thrilling illustrations from David Palumbo and a map of the Six Duchies redrawn by cartographer Neil Gower. Robin Hobb herself has written a new introduction exclusively for this edition, revealing how one stray thought – what if magic were addictive? – laid the foundations for an entire saga.
NOTE: This is the Folio Society edition. The books are not the limited signed edition because it sold out almost immediately. This Farseer Trilogy (three individual books and slipcase) listed on The Signed Page is the regular unsigned edition that I’m having Robin Hobb stop by and sign/personalize. Take advantage. I will only do this once since shipping these heavy books from the United Kingdom to Seattle, WA is… well… SUPER expensive!
SECOND NOTE: The copy of Assassin’s Quest has a short tear in the cloth on the spine, hence the reason this set is discounted. Photo in the gallery to the left.
