Ship Of Magic by Robin Hobb

I was so disappointed in this book.

I probably should have taken a breather between finishing the Tawny Man series (also by Robin Hobb) before starting a new one, but I was on a roll and I didn’t.

I really wish I had.

I loved The Farseer Trilogy and The Tawny Man Trilogy  they were awesome, for reasons I have already spoken of here, here and here. This book was not as good, reading it right after Fool’s Fate made it seem even worse. Too many view points, too cliche of characters, and an unsurprising plot. Near the end things were looking up I’ll read the next one and cross my fingers it gets better but as for this one…

Would I recommend it? No. I hope it was a fluke and the writing that so impressed me with her other books returns in the second of this series.
