Robin Hobb - The ​Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince
One ​of the darkest legends in the Realm of the Elderlings recounts the tale of the so-called Piebald Prince, a Witted pretender to the throne unseated by the actions of brave nobles so that the Farseer line could continue untainted. Now the truth behind the story is revealed through the account of Felicity, a low-born companion of the Princess Caution at Buckkeep. With Felicity by her side, Caution grows into a headstrong Queen-in-Waiting. But when Caution gives birth to a bastard son who shares the piebald markings of his father’s horse, Felicity is the one who raises him. And as the prince comes to power, political intrigue sparks dangerous whispers about the Wit that will change the kingdom forever…

Robin Hobb - Dragon ​Keeper
Enter ​the spellbinding world of dragons . . . and those who tend them One of the most gifted fantasy authors writing today, New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb has dazzled readers with brilliantly imaginative, emotionally resonant, and compulsively readable tales set in far-flung realms not unlike our own. In this enthralling new novel, she returns to the territory of her beloved Liveship Traders and Tawny Man trilogies with a story of dragons and humans, return and rebirth, and the search for meaning, belonging, and home. For years, the Trader cities valiantly battled their enemies, the Chalcedeans. But they could not have staved off invasion without the powerful dragon Tintaglia. In return, the Traders promised to help her serpents migrate up the Rain Wild River after a long exile at sea—to find a safe haven and, Tintaglia hopes, to restore her species. But too much time has passed, and the newly hatched dragons are damaged and weak, and many die. The few who survive cannot use their wings; earthbound, they are powerless to hunt and vulnerable to human predators willing to kill them for the fabled healing powers of dragon flesh. But Tintaglia has vanished and the Traders are weary of the labor and expense of tending useless dragons. The Trader leadership fears that if it stops providing for the young dragons, the hungry and neglected creatures will rampage—or die along the river's acidic muddy banks. To avert catastrophe, the dragons decree a move even farther up the treacherous river to Kelsingra, their ancient, mythical homeland whose mysterious location is locked deep within the dragons' uncertain ancestral memories. To ensure their safe passage, the Traders recruit a disparate group of young people to care for the damaged creatures and escort them to their new home. Among them is Thymara, an unschooled forest girl of sixteen, and Alise, a wealthy Trader's wife trapped in a loveless marriage, who attaches herself to the expedition as a dragon expert. The two women share a deep kinship with the dragons: Thymara can instinctively communicate with them, and Alise, captivated by their beauty and majesty, has devoted her life to studying them. Embarking on an arduous journey that holds no promise of return, the band of humans and dragons must make their way along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River—an extraordinary odyssey that will teach them lessons about themselves and one another, as they experience hardships, betrayals, and joys beyond their wildest dreams.

El ​desenlace de la trilogía «El profeta blanco».«Cada nueva novela de Robin Hobb es un gran acontecimiento.

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.

Közben új dalok szólnak egy királynéról, aki fölkötött szoknyában, mezténláb állt ki bátran a Martalócokkal szemben, és még meg sem született gyermekéről, akiből már a méhében harcos lett.

A csonka kotéria tovább vadászik a fattyúra, s - a Pompa iránt beléjük égetett hűség miatt - semmilyen áldozattól nem riadnak vissza a győzelem érdekében. De még így is lekésik a pillanatot, mikor a maréknyi, Igazsághoz hű csapatnak sikerül egyetlen elődöt Kos megsegítésére küldeni. Ahogy azonban a Hat Hercegség népe nem értette meg a Martalócok szándékait, úgy sikerült félreérteni Pompa őrültségét is...

_"Fantasy ​a javából. Robin Hobb könyvei igazi gyémántok a tengernyi cirkon közt."_ - GEORGE R. R. MARTIN Látnok FitzLovag tizenöt évig önként vállalt száműzetésben élt, és szinte mindenki halottnak hitte. Egy nap azonban elszigetelt életét látogatók zavarják meg: régi mestere, aki az orgyilkosok módszereit tanította meg neki; egy vajákos, aki rég elveszett szerelmének visszatértét jósolja, valamint a Bolond, a Fehér Próféta, aki arra ösztönzi, hogy teljesítse be a végzetét. Amikor aztán Kötelesség herceg nyomtalanul eltűnik az eljegyzése előtt, amely a Hat Hercegség békéjéről hivatott gondoskodni, Fitznek és társának, Éjszemnek nincs más választása: vissza kell térniük Kosvárba, hogy az ügy végére járjanak, és a Bolond, valamint az udvari vadászmester segítségével megtalálják és hazavigyék a trónörököst. Azonban még Fitz sem számít arra, ami rájuk vár…

Robin Hobb - Bűvös ​hajó I-II.
A ​bringtoni élőhajók a világ igazi csodái. Ácsmesterek remekművei, melyeket "mágusfából", egy roppant értékes, titokzatos anyagból faragtak. A hajók orrát díszítő szobrok teljesen életszerűek, s ha a kereskedőcsalád harmadik nemzedékének tagja is meghal a fedélzetén, a hajó életre kel. Az orrdísz mozogni és beszélni kezd, öntudatra ébred. Az élőhajó olyan értékes, hogy a család, amely készíttette, több nemzedéknyi adósságot halmoz föld, hogy birtokoljon egyet. Az életre kelt hajó csak egy családtagnak engedelmeskedik, és olyan hatékony eszköz lesz, amely hatalmas vagyont hozhat a családnak. E krónika a Vestrit kereskedő-dinasztia történetével foglalkozik, melynek hajója Efron Vestrit halála után kel életre. A hajó öröklése azonban megosztja az eladósodott családot, hiszen további boldogulásuk és elveszített vagyonuk visszaszerzésének egyetlen reménye az élőhajó. Eközben a Hat Hercegségtől délre fekvő Bington birodalmán túl egy ifjú és ravasz kalóz nagyravágyó terveket kovácsol, a kalózok királya akar lenni. Céljai eléréséhez pedig szüksége van egy élőhajóra...

Robin Hobb - Shaman's ​Crossing
The ​first book in a brand new trilogy from the author of the Farseer, Liveship Traders and Tawny Man trilogies. When the two-hundred year war between the kingdoms of Vania and Landsing ended the Landsingers were left in triumphant possession of Vania's rich coal and coast territories. When young King Troven assumed the throne of Vania thirty years later, he was determined to restore her greatness, not through waging another assault upon their traditional enemies, but by looking in the opposite direction and colonising the wild plains and steppes to their east. Over the next twenty years, cavalry forces manage to subdue the rolling plains formerly wasted on nomadic herders and tribesmen.Troven's campaign restores the pride of the Varnian military and to reward them, Troven creates a new nobility that is extremely loyal to their monarch. Beyond the grasslands lies the current frontier of Varnia, the heavily forested Barrier Mountains, home to enigmatic Specks: a dappled, forest dwelling people, unable to tolerate the heat and full sunlight of the plains. The new settlers find the Specks slightly dim-witted and overly placid, and yet strangely difficult to control. There are tales that they are 'blood-drinkers' and their nature worship of ancestral trees has presented difficulties for those who wish to harvest the forest's exotic timber. They also harbour strange diseases, ones that cause the Specks little more than a week or two of discomfort but which frequently kills those settlers and soldiers who fall victim to it. For that reason, prolonged contact, and especially intimate contact with the Specks is judged both fool-hardy and disgusting. Nevare Gerar is the second son of one of King Troven's new lords. Following in his father's footsteps, a commission as a cavalry officer at the frontier and an advantageous marriage await him, once he has completed his training at the King's Cavalry Academy.
