Start with the Farseer Series, Then Follow with Tawny Man
Reviewed in the United States on December 13, 2017
While I don't love everything that happens in this book, I definitely love the series.
Set in an alternate world in a renaissance time period, it continues a story of friends, family, magic, dragons, and much more. While there might be many of these themes available, the Farseer and Tawny Man series definitely stand out in how you will fall in love with the characters and be engaged in the plot.
Of the "Tawny Man" series, which is the follow up to the "Fitzchivalry Farseer" series, this is the most action packed. The first two in the series were more of a set up of the end, as well as a reminder of what happened in the first series and a point of filling in some of the important details of the plot line that further develops the characters and gives you the "why" of many of the things that have happened in the past.
While the Tawny Man series doesn't get you quite as attached to the characters as Farseer did, it's definitely a must read to complete the story and will definitely give you both joy, sorrow, and a mixture of emotions as you learn more about the characters. It's definitely satisfying, though I'd say you really should read the first series before it. If you haven't, then definitely read it after. It's wonderful.
There are notes of the authors other series "Liveships" throughout the books that give you several peeks into the lives of those characters as well, which I feel adds a lot of flavor to the book.
I have read all three of the aforementioned series several times, with this one being read with my family aloud so that my husband can experience this wonderful story.
