About the Author
Robin Hobb is one of the world’s finest writers of epic fiction.She was born in California in 1952 but raised in Alaska, where she learned how to raise a wolf cub, to skin a moose and to survive in the wilderness. When she married a fisherman who fished herring and the Kodiak salmon-run for half the year, these skills would stand her in good stead.
She raised her family, ran a smallholding, delivered post to her remote community, all at the same time as writing stories and novels. She succeeded on all fronts, raising four children and becoming an internationally bestselling writer. She lives in Tacoma, Washington State.

Martin 'Hobb is superb, spinning wonderful characters and plots from pure imagination' Conn Iggulden 'Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers... what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics' The Times 'Hobb is a remarkable storyteller' Guardian 'Robin Hobb writes achingly well' SFX
