Ship Of Magic - Robin Hobb

Sentient ship family.

Set in the same world as the Farseer series of books, and geographically within trading distance this book is about a family that crews one of the sailing ships made of a magical wood that are actually alive.

When the father of the family dies the new owner of the ship comes as a surprise. After this, with the usual problems of trying to make a living in this industry throw in piracy on top of that, and pirate romance even.

Nowhere near as interesting to me as the Farseer books, unfortunately.

3 out of 5
