Thankyou Robin Hobb!!! This book was brilliant! I hope the third in the series is out soon, so then I can see where all these relationships are heading!! How do Althea and Brashen end up together, what happens to Wintrow? At the moment, I've been living in a different country and your books have kept me company when I thought I couldn't take anymore. Now I know all I have to do is take a dive into your book and all my problems vanish in this world you've created. I get lost in the brilliant characters, you can almost feel their anger, frustrations, needs. Please, don't take too long with the next in the series!! Thankyou again!!

The Liveship Traders hasn't yet left as profound an effect on me as The Farseer Trilogy, but it's still definitely an wonderful trilogy and a serious must-read. Hobb doesn't just write fantasy - she incorporates ideas and concepts about human nature that make you think and question life itself. The Mad Ship does drag the story a little, but the end nevertheless left me wanting more. If you're a Sara Douglass fan like me, Robin Hobb offers everything Douglass offers and more.

Usually second novel in series are the weakest ones.That always been my rule but Hobb is one of those writers that breaks the rule with
execellent sequel to Ship of Magic.She returns us to Bingtown and it's merchant families, sentinent ships, pirates and deadly sea serpents.Hobb gives her characters more depth like the Pirate Kennit who still is one the most complex characters who ever grace a fantasy novel.Most people in fantasy epics are either very good or very evil.I also like Hobb takes us to the mysterious families of rainwater and the hedonistic Satrap and his intelligent female companion.Hobb's world-building skill are first-rate and I love the detail that she shows in creating her world and memorable characters the dwell there.I look forward to reading the conclusion to this unforgettable seafaring fantasy.
