Assassin's Apprentice - Robin Hobb Assassin's Apprentice is a typical epic fantasy, told almost auto-biographically in first person from Fitz, an orphaned prince's bastard who is trained to be a royal assassin. This is the first book in a trilogy and so focuses on Fitz's early years- his arrival at his grandfather's castle, his training and schoolwork, his days playing with children in town, and basically a detailed account of his life. At times the story feels very slow because there is so much detail, but the shady politics, court intrigue, and witness to Fitz's growth and maturity make the story worth the read.
