Prince FitzChivalry Farseer's daughter, Bee, was violently abducted from Withywoods by Servants of the Four in their search for the Unexpected Son, foretold to wield great power. With Fitz in pursuit, the Servants fled through a Skill-pillar, leaving no trace. It seems certain that they and their young hostage have perished in the Skill-river.
Clerres, where White Prophets were trained by the Servants to set the world on a better path, has been corrupted by greed. Fitz is determined to reach the city and take vengeance on the Four, not only for the loss of Bee but also for their torture of the Fool. Accompanied by FitzVigilant, son of the assassin Chade; Chade's protégé, Spark; and the stableboy Perseverance, Bee's only friend, their journey will take them from the Elderling city of Kelsingra, down the perilous Rain Wild River and on to the Pirate Isles. Their mission for revenge will become a voyage of discovery as well as of reunions, transformations and heartrending shocks.
Startling answers to old mysteries are revealed. What became of the liveships Paragon and Vivacia and their crews? What is the origin of the Others and their eerie beach? How are liveships and dragons connected?
But Fitz and his followers are not the only ones with a deadly grudge against the Four. An ancient wrong will bring them unlikely and dangerous allies in their quest. And if the corrupt society of Clerres is to be brought down, Fitz and the Fool will have to make a series of profound and fateful sacrifices.

"Hobb is superb, spinning wonderful characters and plots from pure imagination." (Conn Iggulden)
"Robin Hobb's secret is not just the detail with which she depicts the Six Duchies world she has explored over 20 years...the feelings of anguish, ambiguity, fear and failure are as familiar as those in a novel by Jonathan Franzen." ( Independent)
"A little slice of heaven." ( Guardian)
"Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers...what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics." ( The Times)

The final book by the brilliant Robin Hobb on the Fitz and Fool trilogy. One of the best fantasy authors! Definitely recommend it!
But, I didn't enjoy the narration. The voices were good, the female (Bee's parts) a bit better than the male (Fitz's parts). However, names and terms were pronounced differently than in all the previous audiobooks I have listened, and at least for me, this was very annoying and distracting. I will try and acquire a different version of this book since it's that good that I will definitely read many more times in the future.
