The Bone Ships

The Bone Ships

‘Excellent . . . one of the most interesting and original fantasy worlds I’ve seen in years’
ADRIAN TCHAIKOVSKY

‘Brilliant’
ROBIN HOBB, author of The Assassin’s Apprentice


TWO NATIONS AT WAR. A PRIZE BEYOND COMPARE.

For generations, the Hundred Isles have built their ships from the bones of ancient dragons to fight an endless war.
The dragons disappeared, but the battles for supremacy persisted.
Now the first dragon in centuries has been spotted in far-off waters, and both sides see a chance to shift the balance of power in their favour. Because whoever catches it will win not only glory, but the war.

A brilliantly imagined saga of honour, glory, and warfare, The Bone Ships starts an epic new trilogy from David Gemmell Award-nominated RJ Barker.

‘A vividly realised high-seas epic that pulls you deep into its world and keeps you tangled there until the very last word’
EVAN WINTER, author of The Rage of Dragons


‘An epic tale of duty and obligation and honour, and what bravery really means . . . I can’t recommend it enough’
PETER MCLEAN, author of Priest of Bones


‘A viciously exciting adventure. I loved every second of it’
TASHA SURI, author of Empire of Sand


‘Swashbuckling awesomeness . . . a fascinating world and a twisty plot, both rooted in characters I came to care about. A definite winner’

JOHN GWYNNE, author of MALICE


‘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’
