Publisher Comments:

Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships — rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia.

For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her — a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim. For Althea's young nephew Wintrow, wrenched from his religious studies and forced to serve aboard ship, Vivacia is a life sentence.

But the fate of the Vestrit family — and the ship — may ultimately lie in the hands of an outsider. The ruthless pirate Kennit seeks a way to seize power over all the denizens of the Pirate Isles...and the first step of his plan requires him to capture his own liveship and bend it to his will....

Review:

"Promises to be a truly extraordinary saga....The characterizations are consistently superb, and [Hobb] animates everything with love for and knowledge of the sea. If Patrick O'Brian were to turn to writing high fantasy, he might produce something like this. Kudos to the author and encore!" Booklist

Antonia Heffelfinger, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Antonia Heffelfinger)
I loved this book! I started reading Robin Hobb's Farseer trilogy last year and struggled to get through the first three books. I avoided starting this middle trilogy for months after finishing the first Farseer trilogy. Once I finally picked this book up, I couldn't stop! The Liveship Trader books are incredibly engaging, and really show off Hobb's talent. The writing is more mature, the plot so much more engaging, and the characters show incredible depth compared to the first trilogy. These books feature some of the most complex and compelling ladies in fantasy fiction that I've encountered, which is a total bonus. Whether you plan on reading the whole Farseer saga, or are looking for a nautical-themed trilogy to pick up (with awesome ladies to boot), this book and series is a great read.
