The gripping finale to Robin Hobb's classic Farseer trilogy, now reissued in gorgeous new livery. Fitz is about to discover the absolute truth about the Fool's prophecy. Having been resurrected from his fatal tortures in the horrible regal's dungeons, Fitz has once more foiled regal's attempts to be rid of him. Now, back in his own body, and after months of rehabilitation, Fitz begins the painful and slow process of learning the ways of a man again. Under the watchfull eye of Burrich, old King Shrewd's stablemaster, Fitz must learn to cast off the wild but carefree ways of the wolf and enter once more the human world, a world beset ever more viciously by the relentless Red Ship Raiders who are now left free to plunder any coastal town they please.
