The Series That Comes After? posted 20 March 2004 in Author Q & AThe Series That Comes After? by Mithfânion, Didact

Assasin's Apprentice, as others have stated. It's the first one and also one of the best things she's ever written, either as Hobb or as Lindholm.

The Farseer/Tawny Man trilogies are nothing short of brilliant. Wonderful character studies above all, the plot tends to be a bit thin (for epic Fantasy), but she creates a great atmosphere and her magic is diferent and interesting both.

I thought the Liveship books displayed a distinct drop in quality though. While you may at least want to give them a try before moving on to Tawny Man, they are not necessary. Some stuff from Liveship does spill in to Tawny Man, but you can definitly read Tawny Man without any problems if you've only read Farseer.

Anyway, interesting news about the other series, thought that is still a long way off.
