Description

The triumphant conclusion to the magnificent Liveship Traders series.

The dragon Tintaglia has been released from her wizardwood coffin, only to find that the glories of her kingdom have passed into ancient memory.

Meanwhile, Malta Vestrit navigates the acid flow of the Rain Wild River in a decomposing boat, accompanied by the Satrap Cosgo and his Companion Kekki.

Against hope, a ship appears in the alien waters, but does it mean rescue, or a further nightmare, for Malta? In ruined Bingtown, the citizens are at war, against the Chalcedean mercenaries besieging the harbour, and also among themselves. If the city is to survive, Ronica Vestrit must unite all its peoples - both Trader and Tattooed - and liberate the city once and for all; but Companion Serilla has a different agenda, and is seeking to establish her own power base. Althea and Brashen are finally at sea together, sailing the liveship Paragon into pirate waters in a last-ditch effort to rescue the Vestrit family liveship, Vivacia, stolen by the Pirate king, Kennit; but there is mutiny brewing in their rag-tag crew; and in the mind of the mad ship itself....

Wintrow has liberated She Who Remembers and she can at last fulfil her ancient purpose, but in doing so he has been terribly injured. If Wintrow dies, Kennit fears that Vivacia will lose her fragile sanity: a loss that will also threaten his dreams of power and glory. So he strikes a deal with the ship. And soon the waters around the Vivacia are seething with giant serpents, following the liveship as it sails to its destiny.

Majestic and sweeping, Ship of Destiny concludes the tale of the Vestrit family and their part in the history of The Liveship Traders with a soaring and triumphant finale to this unique series of epic fantasy.

Critiques

"A truly extraordinary saga… the characterizations are consistently superb, and [Hobb] animates everything with love for and knowledge of the sea. If Patrick O’Brian were to turn to writing high fantasy, he might produce something like this.” ( Booklist)
“A wonderful book, by a writer at the height of her abilities” (J. V. Jones)

Fantastique trilogie

Les amateur de l’assassin royale seront ravis de retrouver l’univers si riche de Robin Hobb où l’on apprend à aimer les dragons, héros, marchands mais aussi les méchants. L’histoire peut se lire de manière indépendante des autres cycles et elle se conclus parfaitement dans le dernier livre, chaque personnage trouve sa destinée et les explications de l’intrigue sont données. Une merveilleuse histoire pour les amateurs de SF ou non.

Incredible ending to the triology

Im amazed by the skill used to tie all strings together in this last book seemlessly. The narrator grew (on me maybe) over the three books and the performance in this last one was very impressive. Acting out the dialoges and matching feelings to descriptions with accuracy. I can tell both the author and the narrator has a passion and skill to deliver this product flawlessly. Thanks!

Not for the book, but the narrator!!

This narrator is appalling! I mean seriously appalling. She reads with no intonation other than elongating the last word of every sentence to extraordinary length. Then the voices she makes for the characters is just awful, I mean really awful.
Just read the book if you are able, the audio version is unlistenable.

el mejor de la trilogía, y del género

excelente historia, muy sólida narración y con un ritmo casi perfecto. oírlo antes de la trilogía de The Twany Man es aun mejor.

Narrator makes all the difference

Now this is purely a personal view, and many people may have a totally different perception, but for me, Anne's voice nearly prevented me from listening to the trilogy. The first 10 minutes of book 1 and I was nearly up the wall with the swishy voice, just listen to a sample and you will see what I mean.

By the second book I found I didn't notice it most of the time, and by the third book I played a sample for my daughter (in her late 20's) and she exclaimed in dismay that she could never listen this series.

OK, just MHO. The books themselves are so incredibly brilliant that the narrator was worth putting up with.

komplexe Handlungsstränge am Ende zu einem großen Ganzen, guten Ende verschmolzen - sehr spannend, man kann irgendwann fast nicht mehr aufhören zu hören

loved it!

I was afraid, the Liveship Traders Trilogy would take me too far away from the Farseers, but again, I was a pleasure to immerse into Robin Hobbs unifers!
