The stirring conclusion to The Soldier Son Trilogy--the acclaimed epic tale of duty, destiny, and magic by New York Times bestselling master fantasist Robin Hobb
Loyal, privileged, and brave, Nevare Burvelle proudly embraced his preordained role as soldier in the service of the King of Gernia--unaware of the strange turns his life would ultimately take. Exposed to a plague of enemy sorcery that felled many of his compatriots, he prevailed, but at a terrible cost to his soul, body, and heart. Now he stands wrongly accused of unspeakable crimes--including murder, the most heinous of them all.
Condemned by his brother soldiers and sentenced to death, Nevare has no option but to escape. Suddenly he is an outcast and a fugitive--a hostage to the Speck magic that shackles him to a savage alter ego who would destroy everything Nevare holds dear. With nowhere to turn--except, perhaps, to the Speck woman Lisana, the enemy whom he loves--he is mired in soul-rending despair. But from out of the darkness comes a bright spark of hope.
Perhaps, somehow, the hated magic that has long abused Nevare can be used by him instead. Could he not learn to wield this mighty weapon for his own purposes rather than be enslaved by it? But down what perilous road will this desperate new quest lead him? And what will be the outcome and the ultimate new incarnation of Nevare Burvelle?

1 . Great Trilogy
Posted August 17, 2010 by Lexi , NJRobin Hobb is an amazing writer but she out did herself with The Soldier Son Trilogy. I tried to walk away from reading for other pursuits but I was pulled back to the story every time. I wondered often during reading if I'd be left hanging because I just could not see how so many characters and lives could be pulled together to one good ending. However, I was not disappointed. The ending was as good as the rest of the trilogy and even left me wishing for more. I'd go for a fourth in the series...I'd love to know how Navare was welcomed home and how all of the family dynamics survived a nobles son bringing home a women and her three children, (her having the reputation of being a whore) as his wife. I'd recommend the series highly!!! But then I'd say that of all of Robin Hobbs books.
