Female Fantasy Authors, November 2013
Orson Scott Card once highly praised Robin Hobb and her work, boldly stating that she "set the standard for the modern serious fantasy novel." He did so with very good reason. Hobb's work is engaging and remarkably addicting. Her Farseer Trilogy, following the adventures of assassin FitzChivalry Farseer, pulls readers into a well-crafted world. Though she would detour from Fitz for her next series, the Liveship Traders Trilogy, she delivers a sea-going/nautical adventure that is a refreshing change of pace from standard fantasy fare. She would return to the adventures of Fitz, though she has branched out and shared newer worlds as well. Remarkable talent.
