AMANDA IS WAITING ON...
Fool's Assassin by Robin Hobb (Del Rey; August 12, 2014; 9780553392425; $28.00)
Nearly twenty years ago, Robin Hobb burst upon the fantasy scene with the first of her acclaimed Farseer novels, Assassin’s Apprentice, which introduced the characters of FitzChivalry Farseer and his uncanny friend the Fool. FitzChivalry—royal bastard and former king’s assassin—has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past . . . and his future. Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one. . . .
If I may, I'd like to reenact through GIFs what happened when I saw that Robin Hobb was coming out with another Farseer novel, what happened when I saw it on Netgalley, and then when I GOT AN ARC OH DEAR SWEET BOOK GODS!
Stage One: WHA?
Stage Two: EXTREME EXCITEMENT
Stage Three: CRYING
Stage Four: GIMME / Requesting it on Netgalley
Stage Five: I GOT IT! I GOT IT! I WAS APPROVED ON NETGALLEY!
Stage Six: Shock. Utter shock.
