Part two is [[Dragon Haven]].
It is not a direct continuation of the the [[Liveship Traders trilogy]] but it does take The story takes place in the [[Rain Wilds]] and [[Bingtown]] a short some time after the events in [[Ship of Magic]] and [[Fool's Fate]].Like the [[Liveship booksTraders trilogy|Liveship Traders]], the story is told in third person. There The viewpoint characters are four view point characters [[Thymara]], [[Alise Kincarron Finbok]], [[Sisarqua]]/[[Sintara]], [[Leftrin]] and [[Sedric Meldar]].

Fine pigeons, one and all.
