Review of “Fool’s Assassin” by Robin Hobb

I wrote a review at the Los Angeles Review of Books of Robin Hobb’s latest, Fool’s Assassin.¬†As a cousin of mine observed–one who has watched me grow up and heard me talk for years about books, and especially fantasy–this feels very much like coming full circle. Assassin’s Apprentice¬†came out when I was a teenager, and I preached its greatness to anyone who would listen (including my cousin). To be reviewing the newest in the series decades later for a great publication is…quite unexpected. It is something that would have astounded my teenage self.
