I have always been a bit of a bookworm. But since having kids (now 2 and 4 years old) I have trouble finding time to read. I have made time to read this series! I can't put it down! I need a book to really grab me and suck me in right from the beginning so that I stick with it. This series does that. Although it is fantasy and is written about another world set in a time that is similar to medieval times, the characters, plot and storyline aren't so far fetched as to be ridiculous. Although some of the characters have magical powers and skills they still have very human personalities, flaws and all. I am so happy that my check out dude at Woolies recommended Robin Hobb's books to me. I'm excited and glad to know that there is a whole lot more to immerse myself in once this series finishes!
