Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father's gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him sectetly tutored in the arts of the assassin.
This really is a good book. It s filled with interesting and vivid characters, a realistic setting, and plenty of intrigue to keep you interested. If you ve tired of the cliched elf-filled fantasy that clogs your bookstore shelves, give Assassin Apprentice a try. You will be entertained.
