To be honest, I was originally going to read straight from the Assassin's series to Tawny Man series but after researching, I discovered to fully understand Tawny, it was strongly recommended to read the Liveship series. One word. Amazing. I was stunned how the story enraptured me with its layered plots and settings. It was also great to understand and feel familiar with the lands, considering it is part of the same lands from Assassin's trilogy. Strongly recommend yet realize the book is not an actual continuation of Assassin's but an individual story that complements the whole series from different aspects and timelines.

After the wonderful Farseer Trilogy - perhaps the best story in 2 decades, I was eager to read more books by Robin Hobb. Unfortunately, this book - and the 2nd - bordered on boilerplate. Even after investing the time to read the first two books - hoping for improvement - I wasn't inclined to read the 3rd - that's how bad they were. The author failed to convince me to care about any of the characters and their troubles were merely depressing. Better by far to skip this series and read the Tawny Man series instead. Barnes & Noble's recommendation must be considered suspect when the Annotation in the Overview clearly belongs to 'Assassin's Quest', not 'Ship of Magic'. Perhaps they will have corrected this by the time you read this review.
