Robin Hobb's Infrequent and Off Topic Blog

Signing Illustrated Royal Assassin

Cover Art for Royal Assassin, the Illustrated Edition

Several people have asked if they can still get a signed copy of Royal Assassin, the Illustrated Edition.  

 

The answer is yes.

 

Although we cannot do a public reading and signing as I've done so often at University Book Store, the store IS taking orders for Royal Assassin.  And if you wish, in the 'comments' section of your book order, write in that you'd like it signed.  If you want it signed a certain way, please be very specific, as in, "To Amanda, Happy Birthday."

 

(I must admit, it feels a bit awkward when someone asks me to write, "To Herman, my first and only love!"  And then I sign it Robin Hobb!  So maybe that could be, To Herman, beloved of Sally."  ) 

 

I will note that you can order ANY Robin Hobb book from University Book Store and they will do their best to get it for you.  Of course, they'll do that for any book you want by any author!

 

Here's a direct link to the Royal Assassin page on the UBS website.  

 

Many thanks to the people who asked about this.  Duane, my favorite book seller, and I will make this happen.  Somehow! I will probably go in masked and sit down with a stack of books and a pen.  But we will make it happen.

Royal Assassin Reveal of Nighteyes

Here we see Nighteyes the wolf as a caged and abused cub, as Fitz first met him
Nighteyes, as envisioned by Magali Villeneuve

On June 16, two weeks from today, the Illustrated Edition of Royal Assassin will be published!

 

Revealed today is Nighteyes, a beloved character first introduced in Royal Assassin. The artwork is by Magali Villeneuve.  This French artist (and friend) is best known for her work on Magic the Gathering, but has also created artwork for The Lord of the Ring, Game of Thrones, books by Brandon Sanderson and Dungeons and Dragons. A visit to her website is highly recommended!

 

Royal Assassin is the second volume of the Farseer Trilogy.  The first book, Assassin's Apprentice, is already available in a handsome matching volume, also illustrated by Magali Villeneuve.  Assassin's Quest, the concluding volume, will be issued in a matching binding and also with Magali's illustrations. This is the first time that all three volumes of the trilogy will be available in matching hardbacks in the US.

 

Penguin RandomHouse makes it very easy to pre-order the volume, with links to many of your favorite book sellers here

 

And yes, there will be a UK edition, also with the Magali Villeneuve illustrations, from Harper Voyager.
