Llena de magia y maldad, de heroísmo y deshonor, pasión y aventura.
  1. 124
    Juego de Tronos por George R. R. Martin (Tjarda, Patangel)
  2. 70
    La Cueva de cristal por Mary Stewart (LiddyGally)
    LiddyGally: Both "autobiograhical" accounts of the life of a man with powers of a magical kind, told from boyhood to manhood. Compelling writing makes for a great read and memorable story!
  3. 60
    Dragon Prince por Melanie Rawn (Kassilem)
  4. 50
    Flesh and Fire por Laura Anne Gilman (Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: If you enjoy the Master/apprentice relationship and the coming of age, rags to relative riches story lines. Both involve young boys who are capable of things that they do not yet understand and must harness their powers towards a greater end.
  5. 40
    Transformation por Carol Berg (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: For epic fantasy that is rarely makes things easy for its protagonists
  6. 30
    A Companion to Wolves por Sarah Monette (Kassilem)
  7. 30
    Across the Nightingale Floor [El Suelo del Ruiseñor] por Lian Hearn (soffitta1)
    soffitta1: A coming of age story, a noble boy with an uncertain future.
  8. 20
    Le Vaisseau magique, tome 1 : Les aventuriers de la mer por Robin Hobb (Patangel)
  9. 20
    Devices and Desires por K. J. Parker (NovaStalker)
    NovaStalker: Both books that have no feel good quality about them at all. If you finish them and their respective series and don't hate life, love, everyone and want to kill yourself you're either incredibly well adjusted or a sociopath. That's a recommendation.
  10. 20
    Imager por L. E. Modesitt (Dragget)
    Dragget: Similar coming-of-age themes where the plot follows the main character as he discovers and develops his skills against a background of political intrigue.
  11. 20
    Inda por Sherwood Smith (humouress)
    humouress: Both series share the similarity of a country defending itself from invaders from the sea with whom they in fact share their ancestry.
  12. 21
    Poison Study por Maria V. Snyder (joyfulgirl)
  13. 10
    The Book of Unholy Mischief por Elle Newmark (mene)
    mene: Both books have a similar setting: Told by a narrator when he is already old and has lived his life, he talks about his childhood. Both main characters lived in the "important building" of the city (though in Assassin's Apprentice it's a fantasy world and in The Book of Unholy Mischief it's Venice in Italy), both boys go to town every now and then to meet his friends (and a girl), and both are apprentices of someone/something they cannot tell anyone else (except for a few people). Both books contain a bit of magic, though of a different kind.… (más)

Recently I heard some reviews stating this as a modern classic of fantasy; after finishing the book, I cannot help but agree. Fitz is a brilliant character, with much nuance in his personality and ethics, and the reader becomes completely sympathetic to his struggles. His relationships to other characters, both positive and negative, are both deep and believable; the cast throughout the whole book are well-constructed, and characters both male and female are deep and well-written. The book's descriptions are lavish and beautiful, without bogging down the story; the dialogue is well-written with clear subtext and intent behind every word; the magic system is innovative and fundamentally intriguing, a novel take I've never seen before. The plot itself is brilliant, full of depth and politicking without reaching the absurd complexity of the ASOIAF political layout, and I found myself hooked throughout. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and will be reading the rest of the trilogy in future. ( )

Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb has been on my Kindle for a very long time. The SFF KIT January challenge--Epic Fantasy--was all the encouragement I needed to read it. it definitely met the description as Hobb has created a world of magic and fantasy and mystery with "Boy," the bastard son of the King-in-waiting at the center of it. He moves into a precarious position at the court, learning to navigate with sometimes begrudging help from others. I was pulled in and wasn't sad I woke up early this. morning to finish it. It is the first of a trilogy and I hope to get to the next two sooner rather than later. ( )

The first half of this book was a slog for me. A lot of setup as our main character, Fitz, recounts his childhood from age 6 to 12 in painstaking (and laughably unrealistic) detail. I was ready to abandon this until the plot finally started going somewhere and then I was hooked. I wouldn't say all the setup in the first half is necessary, but you are rewarded for making it through with thrilling twists in the plot. A few revelations I totally saw coming, others were just plain shocking to me (I was flabbergasted when the wine Fitz and Rurisk drank was poisoned and Rurisk died. I had to read it again to make sure I read it right.). There really aren't a lot of lovable characters (hence the GoT comparisons) but most are sufficiently three-dimensional. What really stood out to me in this book was the (eventual) plot, the world building, and the political machinations.

Sometimes books start great and then lose steam. This is the opposite and it left me wanting to give it four stars, even though on balance I think it should be three.

My other criticism is that it seemed like the author was trying to create a world with some gender equality (e.g. the firstborn inherits whether male or female) but I think overall she failed. Molly, Patience, Jonqui, Kettricken, and various queens of the past have interesting parts to play in the story, but I think this fails the Bechdel Test. And I was annoyed that every duchy was ruled by a duke. Out of six, you'd think at least one would have a duchess worth a mention.

Oh and, Esperanza, if you're reading this review, take note: YOU DO NOT WANT TO READ THIS BOOK. DOGS ARE HARMED. REPEAT: DOGS ARE HARMED. ( )

This novel is about Fitz, a bastard son of the heir to the throne of the Six Duchies, who grows up in the keep and has to find his own way. Initially mocked and shunned, he tries to carve out a path for himself and finds some friends, but also powerful enemies. And while he is talented in the Skill, a kind of telepathic magical system, he also possesses another aptitude that he must disclose because it is not approved of by society.

I don't exaggerate when I say that this was the best book I have read in ages, for several years at least. I loved it so, so much!
The world-building, the characters, the narration, the pace. And the dogs!
In the end I could not stop sobbing. My emotions about this story just overwhelmed me because I felt so connected to Fitz. ( )

I struggled a little bit with this read. I really enjoyed the characters and the world building but I struggle with the writing style and how this story was told. It was a book that kept me guessing but It was not a book that plot engaged me. I thought the wold was super fun and hope in future books this world gets fleshed out this world. I did not feel super connected to these characters and felt like the world was not fleshed out as much as i wanted to. I wanted to love it but I did not. I will still give book 2 another chance and just hope i grow to love the character and the world building. ( )

Despite some titles similar to those of the original 6, the French version of the Farseer books splits the 2 trilogies into 13 books. This is 1 of 13 and it is the only book that is exactly the same as the original one. Make sure you combine only with identically split parts of the series.
