Robin Hobb's Infrequent and Off Topic Blog

Assassin's Quest March 2021

Well, I had hoped to show you a brief animation of this image from Assassin's Quest. But as I cannot seem to upload it to my website, I must, with great reluctance, send you to the Robin Hobb Facebook page for that treat, if you wish to see it animated.  Or, you can stay right here and enjoy every detail of the image as the artist created it.   


As many of you already know, Magali Villeneuve and I have been friends for years, so I was delighted when she agreed to do the illustrations for these editions of the Farseer Trilogy.  If you click on her name, you will be taken to an animated illustration of Verity at the Skill River, another image from a set of ten she has done for the Illustrated Edition of Assassin's Quest.


Assassin's Apprentice and Royal Assassin are already available.  Assassin's Quest, the concluding volume, will be available March 2, 2021 and can be preordered from Penguin Random House here:  https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/80901/assassins-quest-the-illustrated-edition-by-robin-hobb/



But, if you want it to be very special, as in, signed by me possibly with the inscription of your choice, order it from University Book Store in Seattle.  I'll be making a special trip up there to do a covert Covid signing, masked and distanced.
