Review:

"Fast action, deep emotional bonds and a great ending...[I] encourage you to check out Dragon Haven."--Blogcritics.com

"FOREST MAGE presents a darker and more complex hero in Nevare . . .Ms. Hobb has given a lot of thought to her world and characters. Dark as they are, they stand out like jewels on velvet."--Romance Reviews Today

"At once harrowing, unexpected, and morally complex. . . . I'm eager to see what happens next."--Locus

"[D]elicate, vivid language . . . [a] fine example of how to avoid a middle-book slump."--Booklist

"Displaying Hobb's gift for creating unusual and compelling worlds, [Shaman's Crossing] maintains her high standard of storytelling."--Library Journal

"All [of the stories] are beautifully written parables, expressing a clear message but managing not to be too offensively preachy about it....You don't have to be a fan of either of the author's identities to enjoy this collection--but you may become one."--Kirkus Reviews on THE INHERITANCE

"One author, two pseudonyms, and a wonderful collection of short stories...an exciting addition to the fantasy genre. Her stories are fresh and surprising as she weaves in subtle twists."--Portland Book Review on THE INHERITANCE

From the Back Cover:

A treasure trove of tales from a master storyteller--the first to feature works written under both her pseudonyms, Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm . . .

The Inheritance

Before she became an acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, Robin Hobb received resounding critical praise for work written under the name Megan Lindholm. Though they spring from the same imagination, Hobb and Lindholm are separate, diverse identities, each with her own unique style and perspective.

The Inheritance celebrates the boundless vision of Hobb and Lindholm, bringing together for the first time classic and new short works from both names. The collection is comprised of three generous offerings from Robin Hobb, including the title story, which makes its U.S. debut here, and a brand-new tale, "Cat's Meat." Megan Lindholm contributes her Hugo and Nebula Award finalist "A Touch of Lavender" and Nebula finalist "Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man," as well as several classic and new gems.

Each piece is prefaced by a brief yet informative author's note, offering insight into each story's genesis. Fascinating, compelling, and wonderfully entertaining, The Inheritance reveals the full spectrum of skill and talent of one of the world's finest fantasy writers.
