Admittedly, mine cuppeth hast been overflowing on the first part from very early on this series—and trilogy—nor am I qualified to analyse all the ways Hobb fails in writing about the tattooed slaves, so this is going to be a short review. Again. This trilogy has all the melodrama and angsty plot t...

Ship of Destiny was a perfect ending to a perfect story, a truly grand finale to the grand Liveship Traders trilogy. The writing, the characters, the story--brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. The dragons, the battles, the love stories, the mysteries, the magic--all thrilling, all beautiful. All lose...

56. SHIP OF DESTINY, BY ROBIN HOBB (Book 3 of The Liveship Traders, Book 6 of the Realm of the Elderlings)The final installment in The Liveship Traders trilogy. I was looking forward to this one... And it didn’t disappoint. The only bad feeling I have is that, because of the challenge, I can’t read ...

Incoherent commentary on the first book here and the second book here.Look, I already babbled about this once and GR ate my babble.So now I am ill-disposed to rebabble.As ever, I can't remember specific events of this particular trilogy but I did think it had a more trad fantasy feel than Assassin's...

It's pretty rare that I rate one of the later volumes of a trilogy/series more highly than the first (the only instance I can think of off the top of my head is Speaker for the Dead and Xenocide, the sequels to Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game.) In this case, it's probably because all of the nigglin...

Oh man what a conclusion to the series. I absolutely loved every word of it. This book picks up exactly were book 2 ended and takes our heroes and heroines (there are a lot of each) on various dangerous adventures along the Pirate Isles. There are many ongoing plot elements - 1. Bingtown - Old Tr...

Fabulous book, I cried! I love the way Hobb manipulates you into liking characters that initially you can't abide.

Hands down, this is one of the best stories I've ever read. I'm really not sure how to start talking about it. Nothing is contrived, there are no plot holes, no unintentional loose ends. The characters are perfect and so real. I have nothing smart to say, I just loved these books.

For one reason or another I haven't given any of the Liveship books especially good star ratings, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy them: I really did. This is a fun book with an intense, compelling plot and I certainly enjoyed following the adventures of the characters I'd been with for a couple...

I hadn't thought it possible, but I have to say that this trilogy is even better than the Farseer trilogy. I think it's possible that I just liked the characters better, and that the plots themselves are comparable.My favourite part by far was seeing the various characters grow and mature. Malta esp...
