As the ancient tradition of Bingtown's Old Traders slowly erodes under the cold new order of a corrupt ruler, the Vestrits anxiously await the return of their liveship-a rare magic ship carved from sentient wizardwood, which bonds the ships mystically with those who sail them. And Althea Vestrit waits even more avidly, living only to reclaim the ship as her lost inheritance and captain her on the high seas. But the Vivacia has been seized by the ruthless pirate captain Kennit, who holds Althea's nephew and his father hostage. Althea and her onetime sea mate Brashen resolve to liberate the liveship-but their plan may prove more dangerous than leaving the Vivacia in Kennit's ambitious grasp.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Noelle | 2/6/2014

    " Hobb tackles all areas of societal politics in this pirate-fantasy trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jon | 1/27/2014

    " This is very good speculative fiction. I didn't have nearly as much fun with this one as with _Ship of Magic_ and I think it's because Hobb spends most of her time advancing the story as opposed to introducing new characters, the setting, and new fantastical creatures that weren't a part of the Farseer trilogy. I'm looking forward to the conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Annji | 1/23/2014

    " A 900 page book that feels more like 100 pages. As usual, Hobb deftly handles multiple story lines that are populated by well-rounded characters living in a fully-realised world. Though her writing of magic remains on the airy-fairy side, I really do enjoy her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sandra aka Sleo | 1/23/2014

    " Well, less of a cliff hanger than #1, but still incomplete Alternately engrossing and aggravating, slow at times.. I've learned to tolerate the POV shifts as I think it's likely most will survive ... even the ones I'd rather didn't.. "
