Great writers inspire me to read, poor writers motivate me to write.
So I have to admit that thanks to Robin Hobb’s Fool’s Assassin, progress has slowed with Mindmage – the sequel to Wildmind.
If you haven’t encountered Fitz and the Fool, start at the beginning, with Assassin’s Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1) and wend your way through the wonderful series. Great characters, subtle and intriguing magic, powerful tales. Unputdownable.
