Excellent . . . one of the most interesting and original fantasy worlds I've seen in years
The Bone Ships has already built up plenty of anticipation - and with good reason . . . Barker's previous series, the acclaimed The Wounded Kingdom Trilogy, was a powerhouse of gritty fantasy, and The Bone Ships promises to launch one of this season's greatest, grandest dragon sagas
The Bone Ships is a viciously exciting adventure. I loved every second of it
A vividly realised high-seas epic that pulls you deep into its world and keeps you tangled there until the very last word
A clever and well-constructed tale, highly enjoyable and brimming with imagination.
An epic tale of duty and obligation and honour, and what bravery really means... I can't recommend it enough
I absolutely loved it. A whole lot of swashbuckling awesomeness by RJ Barker. He has crafted a fascinating world and a twisty plot, both rooted in characters I came to care about. A definite winner
