    Anyone read the Farseer trilogy?

    Post by aceluby on Wed Jun 12, 2013 10:51 am

    So after completing Game of Thrones and Hunger Games series I went on a hunt for a new series to read.  Started reading the Wheel of Time, but it just wasn't doing it for me... the whole boy on an epic quest to save the world was just a little too cliche fantasy at this time.  I went back to my search and was recommended the Farseer trilogy and am thoroughly enjoying it right now.  About 1/3rd of the way through and I love the characters and the interactions between the different sects of society.  I believe there are two or three different trilogies w/ these characters, so I'm excited to continue to read about them for a few months before I start by Game of Thrones re-read project.

    So, anyone else read these books?  Try to keep this as spoiler free as possible.

    Read the first trilogy, liked but them but..... i can't say.

    WOT trust me stick with them, totally different from A song of Ice and Fire, but worth it. They can be slow and ponderous at times but the central plot, lore and world is utterly amazing. It really doesn't take off until midways on book 2. First 2-3 books are basically an introduction.

    If you like martins stuff, check out joe Abercrombie, the first law trilogy.
