A few months ago, rumour broke that Robin Hobb was working on another book in her popular Fitz & Fool series. The new book, titled The Fool’s Assassin, is the first in what Hobb is officially calling The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy, which follows The Farseer Trilogy and The Tawny Man Trilogy.

Hobb announced today that the manuscript for The Fool’s Assassin is now with her publisher, and she is determined to keep it to three books, though her recent ‘duology,’ the Rain Wild Chronicles, exceeded that length, eventually finishing after four novels.

The Fool’s Assassin is expected for release in 2014.
