Forest Mage: The Soldier Son Trilogy, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The second book in the brand-new trilogy from the author of the Tawny Man trilogy, following on from the best-selling Shaman’s Crossing. The King's Cavalla Academy has been ravaged by the Speck plague. The disease has decimated the ranks of both cadets and instructors, and even the survivors remain sickly. Many have been forced to relinquish their military ambitions and return to their families to face lives of dependency and disappointment.
As the Academy infirmary empties, Cadet Nevare Burvelle also prepares to journey home, to attend his brother Rosse's wedding. Far from being a broken man, Nevare is hale and hearty after his convalescence. He has defeated his nemesis, Tree Woman, and freed himself of the Speck magic that infected him and attempted to turn him against his own people. A bright future awaits him as a commissioned officer betrothed to a beautiful young noblewoman.
Yet his nights are still haunted by dreams of the voluptuous Tree Woman; dreams in which his Speck self-betrays everything he holds dear in his waking life. Has the plague infected him in ways far more mysterious than the merely physical? Despite his fears, Nevare will journey back to Widevale in high spirits, in full expectation of a jubilant homecoming and a tender reunion with his beautiful fiancée, Carsina.
But his life is about to take a shocking turn, as the magic in his blood roars to life and forces him to recognize that his most dangerous enemy, an enemy that seeks to destroy all he loves, might dwell within him.

This is where that starts.
This is a fantastic trilogy. If like me you've read the Fitz -Chivalry stuff and the Rain Wilds/Ships books but you've heard this is very different, put those misgivings aside.
This trilogy is as good as those books once it gets going.
1) yes. I get it. Nevare was clearly an idiot. That's why he was sent off with dewara. But I refuse to believe anyone can be this much of an idiot.
2) just. Nothing happens. I've got used to Robin hobb's slow middle books in all her trilogies. But nothing happens. Whiny brat gets fat, runs away, whines for 20 chapters, runs away again.
Some people have called this trilogy dark. It is. And it's good at making you think about the plight of the fat man. But Nevare just acts so unbelievably stupidly at every turn, demonstrating a total lack of any of the skills he learned at the academy.
