    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.

    "Good listen,,,but"
    Overall

    A very nice tale, good character development and definately draws you into the story,,,
    but,,,
    the book does not come to any conclusions. I imagine this happens in the next books in the series, which are not available on audible. Therefor, it might be best to wait. I found myself irritated that after listening for so long I must wait even longer to find out what happens.

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    Jacob says: "Doesn't wrap as nicely as Gathering Storm"
    "Delightful"
    Overall

    I stood stock still staring off into space while listening. Completely taken and enthralled by world created and the begining of the great battle.
    Wonderful.
    Thank you!

    While the major fighting of the war moves to the south in the summer of 1779, a British force of fewer than a thousand Scottish infantry, backed by three sloops-of-war, sails to the desolate and fog-bound coast of New England. Establishing a garrison and naval base at Penobscot Bay, in the eastern province of Massachusetts that would become Maine, the Scots - the only British troops between Canada and New York - harry rebel privateers and give shelter to American loyalists....

    Clayton says: "I've loved 35 books by Cornwell: this one -- no"
    "Can't get through it"
    Overall

    simply put, it has been two months of trying and I can not get through this book. Dull, tedious and in need of better narration.
    sad because I have listened to every book Bernard Cornwell has available an purchased without thought, or reading review and this time I must say, don't spend the credit.
