Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father's gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him sectetly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz's blood runs the magic Skill--and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.

  1.  Complex and yet moves well 9 September, 2013 On
    Assassin's Apprentice relies a lot on intrigue and complexity of interactions to keep the reader raptured and 'yet' moves at a good pace. The system of magic that this book is based on is not clearly explained (I hope deliberately) which allows the reader to allow their imagination to extend the possibilities but also makes it tricky to grasp the significance of some of the events. It is not a terribly big book but manages to move through a large set of events (some of which I hope will have some relevance in the forthcoming books of this series. I like reading this installment but it would be too early to comment on the overall standing of this series in context of the other fantasy series that I have read.
