    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.

    I read this trilogy a few years ago and it became my favorite series. My heart jumped when I saw it finally came to Audible. I couldnt download it fast enough. However; I can't listen to the narrator. I don't like it and I can't get very far without turning it off. I wish it was narrated by someone else. I am so disappointed.

    It's springtime in Styria. And that means war. There have been nineteen years of blood. The ruthless Grand Duke Orso is locked in a vicious struggle with the squabbling League of Eight, and between them they have bled the land white. While armies march, heads roll, and cities burn, behind the scenes bankers, priests, and older, darker powers play a deadly game to choose who will be king.

    Lore says: "Solid, but not as good as the First Law trilogy."
    "Hold onto your.....This is one wild ride!"
    Overall

    I love this book!! Heart pounding roller coastery, starkly icky, bloody characters you love to hate to love. A nest of rattllers, cobras, mongooses, and nut jobs all rolled up into a juicy, adventure you can't stop listening to..(except when you have to turn it off cause you might want to spew). Alot of fun, but not for the squeamish. The narrator is perfect, very talented. Well worth the credit and then some!

    Story
    (2884)

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    Steven says: "Steven Pacey is magnificient."
    "Inquisitor Glokta.. Toothless Torturer with Heart!"
    Overall

    Whyyyyy do I do this? ....I've coined that phrase. I love this trilogy. It was a compelling read. The Characters are unique and likable in all there human nastiness. I wish there was a fourth in the series though, I didnt want it to end. Glocta has become one of my favorite characters along with Icky Solomon from the Potato Factory. Slimy, intersting, yucky, but lovable.
