'Hobb is a remarkable storyteller'
‘Hobb is superb’ CONN IGGULDEN
'Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers… what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics'
About the Author
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.

However you might wonder as to why only 4 stars?
Well I've noticed Hobb ends her books in a sort of weak manner. This holds true for her Royal Assassin series also which again consists of 3 books. She sets us out following a harrowing journey with major plots to be completed with everything travelling at a rapid tense pace leaving the reader craving more and nore approaching the terminus until BAMN everything slows.
You feel like you know everything that's needed but there's still a hundred plus pages left and you don't even feel like making it through even though you've eagerly gobbled up the first 2000 or so pages over the series (page measurement approximate by Kindle standard)
For this reason I can only give 4 stars.
For the most part in the Fitzchivalry series (both trilogies) Hobb's writing and characters make up for the fairly staple fantasy ingredients but with this series and ultimately the Ship of Destiny I was waiting for that real attachment to characters to begin. The biggest success in this book is Paragon, the mad ship, which is the only character I truly ended up being interested in, which is a shame because there were some really interesting parts to the story but as it meandered along and finally ended I just felt glad that the book was over and I can move onto something else. Sadly this book has not encouraged me to move on to the next Rain Wild series which is a huge shame as part of me would like to read more about the dragons and eldrelings
