Golden Fool, by Robin Hobb

This, the sequel to Fool's Errand, is possibly my favorite Hobb to date...possibly because Hobb's hero, FitzChivalry Farseer, finally seems to be gaining some wisdom. The book advances the plot tolerably well for the middle book of a series, and leaves me quite curious to know how the story turns out.

One word of caution: there are some spoilers in this book for Hobb's Liveship Traders trilogy, of which I'd only read the first volume when I read Golden Fool; The Liveship Traders books are still in print, and you probably should read them all before this one.
