Fool’s Quest
by Robin Hobb

Plenty happening in Fool's Quest but it still falls just short in terms of moving the story along adequately. Still, a good read that longtime Hobb fans will love.

Medieval Siege Warfare
by Christopher Gravett

A good, high-level overview of the different aspects of a siege. I don't know that you'd be able to go off and write a thesis on the subject based on this work alone, but it's thorough enough to satisfy the layman.

Shaman's Crossing
by Robin Hobb

While somewhat different from Hobb's usual FitzChivalry novels, I still thought Shaman's Crossing was an enjoyable read as Hobb's slow, methodical storybuilding is always a delight to experience.

Ephemera
by Paul S. Kemp

My review of Paul S. Kemp's Ephemera. A bit of a departure from Kemp's usual franchise work, this one nevertheless doesn't disappoint.

Fool’s Assassin
by Robin Hobb

In this first book of the Fitz and Fool trilogy, Hobb returns to her most beloved character, FitzChivalry Farseer. As is typical of Hobb, the story unfolds slowly, though a suspenseful finish was a nice setup for the larger storyline to come.

Dark Harvest is the perfect Halloween story. Well-written, engaging, and full of rich characters, it's one I can see myself reading every Halloween.

Dragon Haven
by Robin Hobb

Slow and methodical, but full of rich characters set amidst a richer world. Dragon Haven is very typical Robin Hobb, and that's a good thing.
