Royal Assassin
By Hobb, Robin        
Mass Market Paperbound - English

Barely escaping with his life after his first mission, young Fitz returns to the chaotic royal court. With King Shrewd near death and Fitz's only ally off on a futile quest, the throne is ripe for the taking. And as the Red Ship Raiders brutalize the Six Duchies, the kingdom's fortunes-and Fitz's own fate--hang in the balance. ..."Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb's books are diamonds in a sea of zircons."--George R. R. Martin

Fitz has survived his first hazardous mission as king's assassin, but is left little more than a cripple. Battered and bitter, he vows to abandon his oath to King Shrewd, remaining in the distant mountains. But love and events of terrible urgency draw him back to the court at Buckkeep, and into the deadly intrigues of the royal family.

Renewing their vicious attacks on the coast, the Red-Ship Raiders leave burned-out villages and demented victims in their wake. The kingdom is also under assault from within, as treachery threatens the throne of the ailing king. In this time of great danger, the fate of the kingdom may rest in Fitz's hands--and his role in its salvation may require the ultimate sacrifice.
