Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin. He has barely survived his first, soul-shattering mission, and returns to the court where he is thrown headfirst into the tumult of royal life. With the King near death, and Fitz's only ally off on a seemingly hopeless quest, the throne itself is threatened. Meanwhile, the treacherous Red Ship Raiders have renewed their attacks on the Six Duchies, slaughtering the inhabitants of entire seaside towns. In this time of great peril, it soon becomes clear that the fate of the kingdom may rest in Fitz's hands--and his role in its salvation may require the ultimate sacrifice.

Publishers Weekly Review
© Publishers Weekly
A very in-depth and interesting grim book. One of the best series I have ever read. The author clearly knows what she is writing about and it shows in this story.
Far too slow
The story is good but frustrating. It is far too slow so much is filler and a waste. Too many spoilers. Characters too underdeveloped and perceived as foolish. Not at all riveting as the first one only the last chapters compare
Another well - crafted adventure
The young assassin returns, matures, and delights. The characterizations are deep and consistent, and although the layers of the tale part slowly, there is enough action to balance the development of the plot. Extremely well written and imagined.
