'As addictive as morphine' THE TIMES


From the author of the classic Farseer trilogy, SHIP OF MAGIC is the first part of the Liveship Traders. Set in a land bordering the Six Duchies, Robin Hobb begins her epic tale of pirates, talking ships, magic, sea serpents, slave revolts, dashing heroes and bloody battles.


Wizardwood, the most precious commodity in the world, comes only from the Rain Wilds. But only a liveship can negotiate the perilous waters of the Rain Wild River, and liveships are hard to come by. They quicken only when three family members from successive generations have died upon their deck.


The liveship Vivacia is about to undergo her quickening: Althea Vestrit waits for the ship that she loves more than anything in the world to awaken. But her dream of taking her father's place at Vivacia's helm is not to be, for her family have other plans. . .


And the dark, charming pirate Kennit also lusts after such a ship: he well knows the power of wizardwood and has plans of his own . . .

Medlemsvurdering:
"Ship of Magic" er sentrert rundt livet til innbyggerne i havnebyen Bingtown, og da spesielt den gamle Trader-familien Vestrit. De er en av familiene som har et Liveship, et skip som kan våkne til live. I begynnelsen av boka er det nettopp dette som skjer. Men det er mange som vil ha en del av skipet Vivacia. "Ship of Magic" er en fantastisk blanding av fantasyroman, skipskrønike, oppvekstroman og kjærlighetshistorie. Robin Hobb viser at hun er en sann mester, og bekrefter for meg at hun er en av de beste fantasyforfatterne vi har. Romanen har en lysere tone en hennes forrige trilogi, men har også mørke undertoner. Stort bedre enn dette blir det ikke.

Om forfatteren

Robin Hobb is one of the world's finest writers of epic fiction.She was born in California in 1952 but raised in Alaska, where she learned how to raise a wolf cub, to skin a moose and to survive in the wilderness. When she married a fisherman who fished herring and the Kodiak salmon-run for half the year, these skills would stand her in good stead. She raised her family, ran a smallholding, delivered post to her remote community, all at the same time as writing stories and novels. She succeeded on all fronts, raising four children and becoming an internationally best-selling writer. She lives in Tacoma, Washington State.

– This is the first of Robin Hobb's new trilogy "The Liveship Traders". This series is based primarily in Bingtown rather than the Six Duchies of the previous Farseer Trilogy. However, the most facinating thing about this series is the liveships on which the trilogy bases its name. In this series we find more heroines than we did in The Farseer Trilogy, however, Robin Hobb does seem to write rather tortured female characters. There is Althea, the tomboy of the family; Etta who "loves too much"; Keffria, who is under-the-thumb of her nasty husband and Malta, the brat of the family. I did enjoy reading "Ship of Magic", as I find Robin Hobb to be a splendid author of this genre! Some of my friends say they found "Ship of Magic" to be a heavy and difficult read, but I have to disagree! I found this book entertaining and thrilling, recommended to all looking for a new series of novels to enjoy!
