Set in the wild sea and the trader’s village of Bingtown, no one can resist being in awe and scared of a liveship, a magical boat come to life thanks to rare wizardwood. With a character of itself and masters of the seas it is no wonder that people would pay or steal anything to obtain a liveship, either for reputation or economic reasons.

Beautifully written it will spark the interest of any reader, even those with no interest for boats, with descriptive, concise passages and interesting dialogue. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good aventure story with a deeper depth of character psychology.
