Fitz is a royal bastard, cast out into the world with only his magical link with animals for solace and companionship. But when Fitz is adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and learn a new life: weaponry, scribing, courtly manners; and how to kill a man secretly.
Meanwhile, raiders ravage the coasts leaving the people Forged and soulless. As Fitz grows towards manhood, he will have to face his first terrifying mission, a task that poses as much risk to himself as it does to his target: for Fitz is a threat to the throne . . . but he may also be the key to the future of the kingdom.

This book is one of my all time favourites with both great characters and plot development. 'Assassin's Apprentice' is a great introduction to the fantasy genre, a great stand alone novel which evolves into a brilliant series. Robin Hobb is a master of her craft and through the reading of this boy to man journey and the many encounters inbetween I became hooked. - Lachlan, QBD Campbelltown - Lachlan (QBD)
