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.

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.

Spin
by Robert Charles Wilson

Spin isn’t necessarily bad, but it isn’t necessarily good, either. It's somewhere inbetween, which isn't good enough for me to want to continue with the series.
