Farseer #1: Assassin's Apprentice

Farseer #1: Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Why didn't I pick this one up sooner? Exactly my kind of book. The main character goes by "Boy", "Newboy", "Fritz" and "Thomas". His father was a prince, his mother unknown. His grandfather leaves him with the royal family and says he is their duty to raise him. He is schooled in the arts of fighting and letters during the day and at night, he is taught the finer points of assassination.
