Can't. Put. The. Book. Down.

I just discovered Robin Hobb this week.

How did I not find these books sooner?

I read Assassin's Apprentice in less than 24 hours after its purchase.

I'm now halfway through the next book--Royal Assassin .

They're part of a trilogy featuring Fitz, the bastard grandson of the King of the Six Duchies. Since he's of royal blood but out of the succession, Fitz has trained as an assassin, using his talents to kill for the King. The Six Duchies are under assault from the feared Red Ship Raiders, who come over the sea from the Outislands to rape and pillage the Kingdom. The royal family, including Fitz, will be tested to their limits.

I'll give a more detailed review of the whole trilogy later. Probably in about three days at this rate!

What's the last book that kept you up reading at night?
