Publisher's Summary

Internationally-bestselling, critically-acclaimed author Robin Hobb takes readers deep into the history behind the Farseer series in this exclusive, new novella.

One of the darkest legends in the Realm of the Elderlings recounts the tale of the so-called Piebald Prince, a Witted pretender to the throne unseated by the actions of brave nobles so that the Farseer line could continue untainted. Now the truth behind the story is revealed through the account of Felicity, a low-born companion of the Princess Caution at Buckkeep.

With Felicity by her side, Caution grows into a headstrong Queen-in-Waiting. But when Caution gives birth to a bastard son who shares the piebald markings of his father's horse, Felicity is the one who raises him. And as the prince comes to power, political intrigue sparks dangerous whispers about the Wit that will change the kingdom forever...

Internationally-bestselling, critically-acclaimed author Robin Hobb takes readers deep into the history behind the Farseer series in this exclusive, new novella, The Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince. In her trademark style, Hobb offers a revealing exploration of a family secret still reverberating generations later when assassin FitzChivalry Farseer comes onto the scene. Fans will not want to miss these tantalizing new insights into a much-beloved world and its unforgettable characters.

What the Critics Say

"Robin Hobb writes achingly well" (SFX)
"Hobb is a remarkable storyteller." (Guardian)

    "A great short story"

    Another excellent story from Robin Hobb. Shorter than the other books, and self contained. I'm not sure if it's set before or after the other books, but it didn't stop me enjoying it.

    "Robin Hobb never disappoints!"

    I would recommend this book whole heartedly. Short and sweet, it answers some key questions from the Farseer and Fool's trilogies.
