The book is laying an ok foundation for the when story. Of course I got to write this review when I am almost mid second book.

I wish there were a bit of more clearity on the new concepts included in the book eager than keeping all the new elements almost unknown ( )

I am hooked on this story now, it starts off a little slow but builds as it goes and now the plot lines are all into high gear. Ready to start Mad Ship, the second of three. ( )

Another awesome book by Robin. I can't even begin to try to summarize this book. Suffice to say it's bigger than The Farseer Trilogy. It's very nautical and there are many points of view. The world building and character development is brilliant as usual.
Did I mention there are serpents? Lots and lots of serpents. ( )

First published at Booking in Heels.

I have actually read Robin Hobb’s first series; the one that starts with Assassin’s Apprentice. It was a while ago and I don’t remember it all that clearly, but I think I was so-so about it. I liked it, but didn’t love it. The Ship of Magic and the Liveship Traders series takes place in the same world but, as far as I can tell, isn’t actually connected in the slightest. I certainly didn’t suffer from having zero recollection of the Farseer trilogy.

There are many different strands and layers to the plot, but the main point focuses on Althea Vestrit and her family’s liveship that has basically just come alive. Three generations of her family have died upon the Vivacia, and so her figurehead has now come alive and has a personality, hopes and fears of her own. The problem is that Althea’s brother-in-law has assumed command and won’t let her anywhere near the Vivacia, leading Althea to run off into the world in an attempt to prove herself.

That’s a pretty great plot all in itself, except there is so much more. So many subplots, and characters, and argh. Pirates, politics, mutinies, inheritances… There is such a lot going on and, unusually, I loved them all an equal amount. I never felt irritated when the focus shifted to a different character or subplot, because each one was fascinating in its own way.

I did not love each character equally, however! They are all flawed people who make mistakes and foolish decisions, and some of them I hated. I can only assume this is intentional on the part of the author, as each character is so real to me that they could practically walk off the page. The Ship of Magic is a very character driven story (although it has its fair share of action as well) and it would not have worked without that perfect balance of qualities within the story’s subjects.

What really made The Ship of Magic stand out for is how I was made to personally feel everything that happened. I was alternately outraged, thrilled, sad and disgusted by/with each of the characters and the events that occurred, and those feelings stayed with me long after I put the book down. I caught myself thinking about it in the shower and after I’d turned the light out in bed. It’s a book you carry with you, even when it’s not open in front of you.

It’s 880 pages long, but it flies by. Every second I wasn’t reading The Ship of Magic, I wanted to be. It’s lengthy, complex and somewhat complicated, but it manages to be in-depth without being heavy, and semi-formal without being boring. It is one of the most engrossing books I have ever read.

I’d bought the next book in the Liveship Traders series, The Mad Ship, before I’d even finished this one. It’s 906 pages long, but I’ll definitely be getting to it soon. In case it isn’t crystal clear, I loved this book. ( )

Terrible things happening to awful people. But somehow it's still good. That's the magic of Robin Hobb. ( )
