Phil's Rambling Rants
Book review: Ship of Magic|
I think Kennit is one of the best written villians I have read in a long time.
This book is set in the same world as Robin Hobb's Assassin Trilogy but does not require reading it first.
The Tawny Man Trilogy (the 3rd set in this world) does benefit from reading the Assassin & Liveship trilogies first.
