Assassin's Apprentice - Robin Hobb 3.5
I'm not really sure how I feel about this book.
It's long.
It's infuriating.
It's clever.
There are loyalties...often to a fault
There are betrayals...some not at all surprising or painful but some...ugh...fucking moments of "abandonment" about killed me
I was often enthralled
I was occasionally bored.
I was scared
I was angry
I wanted revenge
The deaths of my enemies (not enough deaths by my count) were hollow
Don't let people connect with your mind
I loved Fitz
I loved Chivalry (don't look at me like that)
Every scene with Chade had me on pins and needles
I want to know the Fool

I would like to continue with this story, but I may have to wait a bit for that. Wait and read spoilers to see what is to become of the rest of my enemies.
