Inspired by The Tough Guide to Fantasyland by Diana Wynne Jones – a tongue-in-cheek parody of the fantasy genre – it would spotlight a different trope every week, and invite other bloggers to compile their […]

Robin Hobb’s new US covers (complete contrast to UK)

Robin Hobb’s new US covers (complete contrast to UK) 

Wow, it seems that we’ve done a lot of posts on Robin Hobb’s cover art lately! That said, I’m not complaining… a big problem that the publishing industry has is that they tend to concentrate too much on the new up and coming titles whilst forgetting the ones that – we think – are still […]

For Robin Hobb, the power to construct such masterful, compelling stories must be innate.

Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb

Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb

Well, I guess I should start off by saying this series was absolutely fantastic. I had Assassin’s Apprentice (which I rated 5/5) sitting on by bookshelf for about 2 or 3 years and never got around to it. It wasn’t until it came up in our fantasy book club that I thought about it once […]

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Assassin’s Apprentice is a book that has been on my radar for a long time, but something has always stopped my from picking it up.
