Here it is. The conclusion of the Liveship Traders. The first two books have laid out many obstacles and conflicts. Bingtown is in a state of disarray, Vivacia has been turned Pirate, Malta has been lost, stranded with the Satrap. And with all that was still wrong from the previous book, there’s much more that will happen. This book is full of tension, conflict and a dragon! Tintaglia awoke in the last book, so we get to see her in this and get a better understanding of dragon lives and history. One thing I enjoyed in this series is Kennit. The Robin Hood styled pirate that frees slaves. I love getting the perspective of a bad guy and having the humanized rather than being seen as evil incarnate. Even if he is the one that has stolen Vivaria, the enemy to Althea. He’s far from perfect, kind of a jerk actually. And in this book, he becomes even worse. But for some reason, I still like reading about him and at times actually feel for him (though not quite so much, or really at all, in some parts). And then the women. I love all the women in this series….
