Fool's Quest  (The Fitz and The Fool, #2) book cover

I really enjoy seeing Fitz older. It was also very interesting when he was young of course, and even then his writings were profound, of a sort. But with age comes wisdom, and the writing has unrolled to show that in a very compelling way. This book did end rather abruptly, hopefully paving the way for a powerful, engaging concluding instalment.
