Praise for Robin Hobb and the Liveship Traders Trilogy
"Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb's books are diamonds in a sea of zircons."--George R. R. Martin "A truly extraordinary saga . . . The characterizations are consistently superb, and Hobb] animates everything with love for and knowledge of the sea."--Booklist "A major work of high fantasy, reading like a cross between Tolkien and Patrick O'Brian . . . one of the finest fantasy sagas to bridge the millennium."--Publishers Weekly "Rich, complex . . . Hobb's] plotting is complex but tightly controlled, and her descriptive powers match her excellent visual imagination. But her chief virtue is that she delineates character extremely well."--Interzone
About the Author
Praise For Ship of Magic…
"Promises to be 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. Kudos to the author and encore!"
