    Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left - now he has less than one. With 50,0000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrator is reeeeaally slow and painful to listen to at first. This really is a bad combination with Robin Hobb's already slow style. However!!, if you listen to the book at 2x or 3x speed, the narrator, amazingly, sounds really quite good! I absolutely loved the book after speeding it up a few notches. I was about to quit after the first hour of listening to the intolerable narration.
