Fool's Assassin, by Robin Hobb
There's a reason people like Robin Hobb's books. They are exciting and the characters capture your imagination. The machinations and scheming of the Farseers is interesting and the books are well written. It has been a joy returning to the Six Duchies as I read this book.
Except for her naming convention. I don't like the way they are named after a human quality or character trait, like Shrewd, Chivalry, Desire, Revel, Vigilant, etc. I found it really annoying. Better to have made up names.
I'll be looking for her at Comic-Con next week.
