But then months later the rain wilds chronicles came out and I was too curious to pass them up and knew I needed the back story of the Liveship Trader Trilogy to really understand it. So back I went to all three books.
This time I discovered that the characters I couldn't stand so much weren't much of an issue in "Mad Ship" which primarily follows three members of the Vestritt family. There is Wintrow, onboard the captured and newly awakened family liveship Vivica (who is being successfully wooed by the charismatic pirate Kennit) walking a fine line between being a captive of or for admiration of the pirate, who freed him from the slavery his own father bought him into. Malta, his sister, who is enjoying her first courtship in Bingtown-even if it from a Rain Wilds man she may have no choice to marry to save the family financially after the loss of their liveship. And Althea, who always expected to inherit her father's ship, hatches the most daring plan of all with the Vicica's former first mate Brashen, to take the abandoned and blind liveship Paragon-who killed two of his crews and is mentally unstable-out to find Vivica and attempt to ransom her back or recapture her.
At the same time political strife is stirring with Bingtown's homeland as their leader, a young and foolish man, prepares to visit the colony. Up the strange rain wilds river the origins of the fantastically strong wizardwood liveship are constructed out of is hinted at. In Bingtown itself trouble is caused by the increasing slave population. A strange prophetess with a way with wood befriends Althea and Malta and joins on to save Vivica. And the sea serpents continue their mysterious but all important search for both "she who remembers" and an illusive goal none of them can quite recall-but know the absolute importance of all the same...
This is really a great book and only enhances the mystery and overall excitement of the trilogy further. It's every bit as wonderfully descriptive as "Ship of Magic" in both landscape, history and characters but fortunately some of the more hateful characters have way less face time in this novel, or actually manage to grow a little so you don't feel like smacking them. I enjoyed this immensely and raced eagerly towards the third.
Five stars. And have the last book "Ship of Destiny" ready at hand-the ending is such you won't want to waste any time.
