Praise for Robin Hobb and the Liveship Traders Trilogy
 
Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobbs 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 OBrian . . . one of the finest fantasy sagas to bridge the millennium.Publishers Weekly
 
Rich, complex . . . [Hobbs] 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
