Today, I am delighted to finally be able to review ‘The Bone Ships’ which shamefully has been sat on my shelf since last October when I picked it up at MCM London. I wish that I had read it sooner, but I’m thankful that I’ve read it now and fallen in love, and it has certainly bumped RJ Barker’s first trilogy further up the TBR pile (the first book of which has also been sat on the tower for far too long).
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.
