Review 1: Ship of Destiny – The Liveship Traders Book 3 by Lorena

Something altogether new

I have read a lot of fantasy in my time and it is rare to come across a story that is truly original. The world Robin Hobb has created in this series is unlike any I’ve seen, the magic is subtle and the characters are alive. After reading the Farseer trilogy (also by Robin Hobb), I couldn’t wait to get my hands on more of her books. This one was as good, if not better. The characters Robin creates are real people, they don’t always behave the way you expect them to, they make mistakes and they evolve based on what has happened to them. None of the characters are completely good or completely evil, and they don’t fit into classic stereotypes.
This series is actually placed in the same world as the Farseer trilogy and there are a few subtle ties to that story (which is fun if you’ve read it). If you find you like Robin Hobb’s style, you should really consider listening to her works in order. Each trilogy stands alone, but is made better if read in the right order. Start with the Farseer trilogy, next is the Liveship Traders, then the Tawny Man, and finally the Rainwild chronicles. If on the other hand, you are only going to read one set…read this one. It is impossible to stop listening until you’ve reached the end.

Review 2: Ship of Destiny – The Liveship Traders Book 3 by Lore

Wraps it all up nicely.

This is a fairly easy book to recommend because if you are reading this review then chances are you found the first 2 books entertaining. Know that this is the best of the three and you can pick it up without hesitation. If you haven’t read the first 2 books then you should not start here as many things will not make sense to you.

Overall I enjoyed the series, especially the story surrounding the dragons, wizardwood, and the live ships. It was definitely interesting and unique fantasy fare. The first book started a little slow and introduced many disjointed story threads. The second book picked up the pace and started to bring the threads together. And finally, the third book converged all of the story lines to end an age and usher in a new one. It all concludes nicely at the end so continuing on to Robin Hobb’s next series about the Rain Wilds is purely optional.

Anne Flosnik is still the narrator and her performance here is consistent with the first 2 books.

Review 3: Ship of Destiny – The Liveship Traders Book 3 by austin

I’m done

Due to my stubborn, completionist nature I’ve wasted many hours struggling through to the ending of this trilogy. Subjecting my mind to auditory torture as I forced myself to endure the story much like the female characters endured their “hardships” at the hands of domineering pirates. Despite the [forced and inconsistent] character development, I still found it difficult to like any of the main protagonists. And for those of you that say Kennit was your favorite, you need to read more books (and probably see a therapist).

I have little to say in addition to my previous reviews of the first two books so I will simply conclude that the author is a wonderful writer, but a dreadfully inadequate storyteller.
