Book Review: The Mad Ship, by Robin Hobb (2008).

The Mad Ship by Robin Hobb is the second book in the exceptional fantasy series The Liveship Traders, in which readers are transported into a magical and sometimes cruel world where Dragon’s are ore than just a possibility. This novel takes up where the last ends with Althea returning home aboard the Liveship Ophelia, Brashen is sailing as first mate aboard the Springeve, and Wintrow remains with the Vivacia seeing to Captain Kennit’s leg.

As always, robin Hob gives readers an amazing tale of heartache and adventure. Althea returns home to find her family not doing at all as well as she had hoped. Brashen realises the Vivacia has gotten into trouble and is concerned for Althea. Paragon realises he is to have a new life, and a good life, whilst it looks like the sea serpents are way more than they first appear to be. Wintrow finds his own destiny aligning with that of his captors and begins to make more of the life he thought had been ruined completely. Readers are also graced with further knowledge of Dragons, Trehaug and the existence of the long lost Elderlings.

This well written novel continues on with this completely breathtaking story at a fast pace that keeps readers turning pages far longer than intended. With Bingtown’s existence threatened as War with the Chalcedon , readers are left with many questions answered but with many more answers yet to come. A complete page turner, I found myself exited to find out what happens next. This always being the first sign of a good fantasy series.

Overall, I feel this is a fantastic addition in the Liveship Traders series, and I enjoyed it immensely. My most favourite storyline, surprisingly being that of Malta and her evolution from spoiled child to intelligent young woman. I would recommend this novel to young adults upward. I doubt that there are many fantasy genre fans that could resist this book. I give this book a rating of 10/10 stars.

Dodge’s will asks that his body be given to a cryonics company, owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd, whose business practices give Dodge’s family understandable cause for concern. But when Dodge wrote his will he didn’t anticipate that one day he’d be declared brain dead.
