The magic in this particular fantasy world doesn't seem necessarily like it could do healing Still, that's a very small quibble. I'm not entirely sure which novel I would rate higher. Harpy's Flight is more frantic, I liked the tension in that novel and the plot better. The Windsingers is definitely better structured though.
I felt some of the tension in the sections with Ki and Dresh was lacking a bit although some readers might appreciate the surreal surrounding Ki finds herself in. I guess it is a matter of taste, there is something to be said for each novel. Whichever you prefer, The Windsingers is a solid entry into this series.
March 12th - Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm
Ki and Vandien are a more mature set of heroes than you normally find in fantasy and that is refreshing, even thirty years after they were written. I can't think of many fantasy series that have achieved that. I especially liked the world building and the strong characters Ki and Vandien our two main protaganists as well as the wizard Dresh. The world of the Windsingers is a mixed species world and I do not think that humans are widespread.
Ki is a teamster and a Romni. A Romni is equivalent of a Roma Gypsy in our world.
Supporting characters were also well drawn and interesting. I bought into the vividly described physical world that Ki and Vandien live in, but the whole concept of the Windsingers otherworld was somewhat unsuccessful to my mind or maybe it just didn't really grab my interest and kept this from being better rated by me. I'll still be reading another in this series tho as I really liked the two main characters.

Moreover, the influence of a mysterious prophet, the Fool, forces the young Fitz in a role that influences the role of the entire Six Duchies.

The tale follows the adventures of Liveship Vivacia as the magical ship comes to consciousness, and is taken over first as a slave ship and then as a private vessel. This was the title of a new set of books with which Robin Hobb returned to the tale of Fitz and the Fool.
