After barely surviving his first mission, young Fitz returns to the chaotic royal court to find King Shrewd on his deathbed, his only ally off on a deadly quest, and the throne up for grabs, but when the Red Ship Raiders obliterate the Six Duchies, the kingdoms fortunes and Fitzs fate are at stake.

From the Publisher:
Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin. He has barely survived his first, soul-shattering mission, and returns to the court where he is thrown headfirst into the tumult of royal life. With the King near death, and Fitzs only ally off on a seemingly hopeless quest, the throne itself is threatened. Meanwhile, the treacherous Red Ship Raiders have renewed their attacks on the Six Duchies, slaughtering the inhabitants of entire seaside towns. In this time of great peril, it soon becomes clear that the fate of the kingdom may rest in Fitz's hands--and his role in its salvation may require the ultimate sacrifice.Barely escaping with his life after his first mission, young Fitz returns to the chaotic royal court.

And as the Red Ship Raiders brutalize the Six Duchies, the kingdom's fortunes-and Fitz's own fate--hang in the balance.Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin.

Annotation:
With the Red Ship raiders aggressively lapping at the shore of the Six Duchies, this is not the ideal time for an exchange of power. But nevertheless, ailing King Shrewd might die at any moment, leaving the kingdom's heir, Prince Verity, with a precarious situation. Thankfully, King Shrewd had the foresight to train his bastard grandson, FitzChivalry Farseer, as an assassin in the ancient magic tradition, assigning him the critical task of protecting Verity and his wife. With bravery and cunning, Fitz battles the Red Ship raiders and other enemies of the crown in ROYAL ASSASSIN, Robin Hobb's second book in her fantasy adventure FARSEER trilogy.
