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. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Robin Hobb's Assassin's Quest. Praise for Robin Hobb and Royal Assassin “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “[Robin] Hobb continues to revitalize a genre that often seems all too generic, making it new in ways that range from the subtle to the shocking.”—Locus “[Royal Assassin] reaches astonishing new heights. . . . The Farseer saga is destined for greatness—a must-read for every devotee of epic fantasy.”—Sense of Wonder

Jamère Burvelle poursuit ses études à l’École royale de cavalerie, mais l’antagonisme entre fils d’anciens et de nouveaux nobles croît toujours, attisé par le directeur de l’établissement qui prend des mesures de plus en plus draconiennes pour expulser les élèves de la nouvelle aristocratie. La tension mène à des affrontements qui, pour être sournois, n’en sont pas moins violents. Pris dans cette tourmente, Jamère doit, en outre, faire face aux exigences de la femme-arbre qui, dans ses rêves, lui ordonne de chasser les « envahisseurs ». Déchiré par les conflits qui bouillonnent en lui, influencé par sa fantasque cousine qui cherche à l’entraîner vers le monde du spiritisme, il s’efforce, pour ne pas sombrer, de s’agripper aux principes rigides de son éducation. Mais un jour, la crise éclate...

Le grand jour se profile : Alise comme Thymara vont enfin se trouver face aux dragons, l’une pour assouvir sa soif de connaissances, l’autre pour les conduire, avec un groupe de jeunes gens comme elle, jusqu’à la légendaire cité des Anciens, Kelsingra. Ce qu’elles ignorent, c’est que cette rencontre changera leur existence. Alise, passagère à bord du Mataf dont le rugueux capitaine, Leftrin, ne la laisse pas insensible, va faire un choix qui met en péril sa réputation et son mariage, et détourne son ami et chaperon, Sédric, d’autres plans, bien arrêtés et beaucoup plus profitables. Thymara, elle, par sa fréquentation des autres jeunes gardiens, porteurs des stigmates du désert des Pluies, devra peu à peu remettre en cause les règles qui régissent sa vie depuis sa naissance. Tous affrontent un trajet long et pénible avec les dragons, où ils découvrent leur vraie nature et apprennent à se connaître face à des adversaires qui habitent parfois au fond d’eux-mêmes.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Nearly twenty years ago, Robin Hobb burst upon the fantasy scene with the first of her acclaimed Farseer novels, Assassin’s Apprentice, which introduced the characters of FitzChivalry Farseer and his uncanny friend the Fool. A watershed moment in modern fantasy, this novel—and those that followed—broke exciting new ground in a beloved genre. Together with George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb helped pave the way for such talented new voices as Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson, and Naomi Novik. Over the years, Hobb’s imagination has soared throughout the mythic lands of the Six Duchies in such bestselling series as the Liveship Traders Trilogy and the Rain Wilds Chronicles. But no matter how far she roamed, her heart always remained with Fitz. And now, at last, she has come home, with an astonishing new novel that opens a dark and gripping chapter in the Farseer saga. FitzChivalry—royal bastard and former king’s assassin—has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past . . . and his future. Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one. . . . Praise for Fool’s Assassin “Hobb knows the complicated workings of the wayward human heart, and she takes time to depict them in her tale, to tell her story sweetly, insistently, compellingly. . . . A book meant to be inhabited rather than run through.”—The Seattle Times “[FitzChivalry Farseer is] one of the best characters in fantasy literature.”—Fantasy Book Review “[Hobb’s] prose sparkles, her characters leap off the page.”—Tor.com “Modern fantasy at its irresistible best.”—The Guardian “Fantastic . . . emotionally rich storytelling.”—Library Journal (starred review) Praise for Robin Hobb “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin From the Hardcover edition.

Handsome would-be poet Lucien Chardon is poor and naive, but highly ambitious. Failing to make his name in his dull provincial hometown, he is taken up by a patroness, the captivating married woman Madame de Bargeton, and prepares to forge his way in the glamorous beau monde of Paris. But Lucien has entered a world far more dangerous than he realized, as Madame de Bargeton's reputation becomes compromised and the fickle, venomous denizens of the courts and salons conspire to keep him out of their ranks. Lucien eventually learns that, wherever he goes, talent counts for nothing in comparison to money, intrigue and unscrupulousness. Lost Illusions is one of the greatest novels in the rich procession of the Comedie humaine, Balzac's panoramic social and moral history of his times.
