RT Rating

Hobb masterfully writes two very separate characters into one physical body in the third book in her Soldier Son Trilogy. Her ability to capture detail is hindered only by her tendency to focus on it -- making the novel wordy and lengthy in parts. It's a truly enjoyable story, however, that's not hindered too much by the length.

Nevare Burvelle has become
a prisoner in his own body -- his consciousness has been subsumed by Soldier's Boy, another person or consciousness that exists alongside his
own inside his body.

Soldier's Boy and Nevare are
so different that they claim different ancestry. Worse yet, their people
have been at odds with each other
for centuries. As the tensions between
their two peoples head toward all-out
war, which side will Nevare be on? Nevare must fight for control of his own body before Soldier's Boy
leads him to battle against his
own family and friends. (EOS, Feb.,
