This is the third trilogy in the Realm of the Elderlings sequence by Robin Hobb.
Titles In The Set:
1. Fool's Errand
2. The Golden Fool
3. Fool's Fate
Years have passed since Fitz was tortured by Prince Regal. Now he lives in self-imposed exile far from court. Even his beloved Molly believes him dead.
It is safer that way.
But safety remains an illusion. Even though the war is over dangerous undercurrents still swirl around the Six Duchies and suddenly young Prince Dutiful disappears just before his crucial diplomatic wedding to shore up the peace.
The Fool brings Fitz a secret mission. He and his bonded companion, the wolf Nighteyes, must find Dutiful and bring him back to be wed. For if the Outislanders are snubbed, war will surely resume. But what if the prince does not wish to be found?
The Golden Fool
Fitz has been persuaded back to court, posing as a servant to the decadent Lord Golden (who is the Fool in disguise). In secret, he will train Prince
Dutiful in the magic known as the Skill.
The peace remains fragile, so the diplomatic wedding between Dutiful and the Outislander princess is a crucial alliance. But when Elliania arrives she challenges the prince to undertake an impossible quest before she will accept him.
He must kill Icefyre, one of the last true dragons. And Fitz and the Fool must go with him...
Kingdoms will stand or fall on the beat of a dragon's wings, or a Fool's heart.
Prince Dutiful has been charged with a quest to the Outislands to take the head of the black dragon Icefyre.
Only then will his betrothed marry him and cement the alliance between their warring kingdoms.
But is Icefyre just a legend? Or does he truly slumber beneath the glaciers? Fitz has prevented his friend the Fool from accompanying them: the Fool has foreseen his own death if he ever sets foot on the isle of the black dragon. But as their ship draws in towards Aslevjal a lone figure awaits them.
