Summary
"FitzChivalry Farseer--royal bastard and former king's assassin--has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, he 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. And though he is haunted by the disappearance of his uncanny friend, 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. But the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers suddenly 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..." -- Page [4] cover

Summary
Former king's assassin FitzChivalry Farseer, highborn but illegitimate, takes center stage in this series opener. Retired from active service and married to the love of his life, Fitz -- living under the alias "Tom Badgerlock" -- anticipates a quiet life as caretaker of the Crown's bucolic Withywoods estate. Alas, when a group of marauders interrupt the manor's Winterfest, Fitz must once again pick up his weapons and battle the villains. Although Fool's Assassin is the 1st volume of a stand-alone series, fans of Robin Hobb's previous Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies will enjoy reuniting with familiar characters and returning to this well-developed world. -- Description by Gillian Speace
