Review: Gentleman Takes a Chance by Sarah A Hoyt

In Gentleman Takes a Chance (Shifter Book 2) by Sarah A. Hoyt, newly established owners of The George come up against other shifters who have come to investigate the deaths from the end of book one, Draw One in the Dark.
Kyrie and Tom know that they have a long road ahead of them, and that’s just counting the everyday things – their not-quite-intimate relationship, their makeover of The George, and generally establishing themselves in a new town. In Gentleman Takes a Chance” the new couple get a chance the blossom in these roles, if they can keep busybodies from either blowing their cover or killing them. Oh, and if Tom can keep from breaking any more bathrooms in dragon form.
In book one, we met the Great Sky Dragon and the triad he controls. Gentleman Takes a Chance expands upon this while adding other ancient shifters who also think they have a say in Kyrie and Tom’s lives. These ancient shifters claim that they care about the deaths Kyrie and Tom and their friends have caused, but they arrive conspicuously after the fact and do quite a poor job of investigating in the name of their simplistic and elitist laws. Kyrie and Tom note this as they assert their own moral code and their own version of events. In this way Hoyt neatly continues a theme of responsibility and agency that goes far beyond simply owning up to a superpower like shifting. If anything, Tom and Kyrie strive to hold themselves to the same standards as other humans, which is hard to do while seemingly all-powerful elders are taking deadly swipes at you…

Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb

fool-s-errandStraight off the back of Assassin’s Quest, I dove right into the first book in The Tawny Man trilogy: Fool’s Errand. People saw me reading it and said, “Wait, read Liveship Traders… READ IT!” I said no, not right now. I’m super busy adventuring with Fitz and the Fool, and cannot be bothered to read another series set in the same world until I’ve read every word ever written about FitzChivalry Farseer and my Beloved Fool. So, that being said, yes, I’ve skipped Liveship Traders for now, but will return and read it once I’m all Fitzed out.

Now, this book had me skeptical in the beginning. It begins about fifteen years after events in Assassin’s Quest and finds Fitz living in the country with a boy he adopted named Hap and his bond-wolf Nighteyes under the name Tom Badgerlock. He’s distanced himself from the Farseer throne, knowing that the love of his friends and family will never be able to save him from who he is. Self-proposed exile is the only route for him, and for fifteen years of his life Fitz is his own master. He answers to no one but himself (well, mostly Nighteyes…) and for the most part he’s very happy with his choice. Sure, he’s lonely. He misses Chade and the Fool, Burrich and his beloved Molly (who are married now and have children of their own,) Lady Patience and Kettricken, but really, it’s better this way… Just Tom Badgerlock, his wolf, his boy and the occasional visit from the bard Starling, who despite his wishes to remain aloft from his life, draws him back into the fray with every appearance…

Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb

assasin's questBack from the dead, and scarcely a man after merging bodily with his bond-wolf, Nighteyes, FitzChivalry Farseer is driven by one thing and one thing alone: revenge.

Tortured, beaten, murdered and then defamed by his uncle, the usurper King Regal, Fitz’s guardian Burrich and his mentor Chade bring him back from the dead a far different man than the boy who didn’t survive the dungeons of Buckkeep. He’s lost everything. His comfort, his status, his family and his love. His grandfather, King Shrewd is dead. His uncle, King Verity, never returned from his quest to the lands beyond the Mountain Kingdom, where he hoped to rouse the Elderlings to aid him in driving back the Red Raiders destroying the Six Duchies, and Verity’s wife, Queen-in-Waiting Kettricken, has fled in order to preserve Verity’s unborn heir so the child might one day take back the thrown…
