I liked the Assassin trilogy but found it emotionally draining, particularly
the third book.  How does the new series compare that way?  I got very
tired, near the end, of Fitz constantly falling into Mortal Peril and then
out of it again.  That must be some comment on how engaging the character
was, but I don't have the energy for it again.
