    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.

    Lorena says: "Something altogether new"
    "Unfortunate choice for narrator..."
    Overall

    Anne Flosnik would make a fine childrens book narrator... Loved the Farseer trilogy... won't be able to listen to this one though.

    As the ancient tradition of Bingtown's Old Traders slowly erodes under the cold new order of a corrupt ruler, the Vestrits anxiously await the return of their liveship - a rare magic ship carved from sentient wizardwood, which bonds the ships mystically with those who sail them. And Althea Vestrit waits even more avidly, living only to reclaim the ship as her lost inheritance and captain her on the high seas. But the Vivacia has been seized by the ruthless pirate captain Kennit, who holds Althea's nephew and his father hostage.

    Lore says: "Book 2 starts to bring it all together."
    "Unfortunate choice for narrator..."
    Overall

    After listening to Paul Boehmer, Anne Flosnik just doesn't make this series come to life. Her style of reading is less than optimal... Slow pace with words clearly enunciated. Would be a great childrens book narrator.

  • The Steel Remains

    In just a few short years, Richard K. Morgan has vaulted to the pinnacle of the science fiction world. Now he turns his iconoclastic talents to epic fantasy, crafting a darkly violent, tautly plotted adventure sure to thrill old fans and captivate new readers.

    Forest says: "This isn't your father's gay hero!"
    "Only glad I didn't spend CASH on this"
    Overall

    It sounded like a promising book... I've only gotten a little over an hour into it but I'm not sure I can take much more. Yea... there's some "gay" stuff going and that kinda put me off... but the bottom line is it's boring me to death! I'll try another hour (maybe) and might provide a more informative review... So far, NOT time well spent!

    "Poor Reading"
    Overall

    A terrific book read terribly! I could not in could conscience recommend this audio book to anyone. Better to read the book than hear the narrator!
