I'm trying to remember the title of a fantasy story in which the main character is the unwanted brother (or half-brother?) of a prince. Other important characters are an older brother who is assassinated and a crippled stableman.

This story haunts me, as I never finished it. I believe it is part of a series I picked up at the library.

    A little more data could help.. When did you pick the book up? Any idea of the publishing date? Any character names or anything? – K-H-W Jul 28 '11 at 19:36

The Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb (who also writes as Megan Lindholm). The three volumes are Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin's Quest.

    If this is the series you're looking for I highly recommend you let it keep haunting you. The beginning of the series is much more interesting than the end. – Ben Jackson Aug 8 '11 at 6:08
