Editorial Reviews

Review

"A vividly realized 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 on The Bone Ships

"
The Bone Ships is excellent. Aside from the standout writing, it's one of the most interesting and original fantasy worlds I've seen in years."―Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author

"
The Bone Ships is a viciously exciting adventure. I loved every second of it."―Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand

"[T]he novel feels like one of Patrick O'Brian's richly detailed sagas of seamanship...a very promising beginning."―
Publishers Weekly on The Bone Ships

"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 for me."―
John Gwynne, author of Malice on The Bone Ships

"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 on The Bone Ships

"The first in the Tide Child trilogy presents a unique and memorable world-harsh and brutal and full of fully realized, powerful female characters. Barker has managed to craft a story inspired by
Moby Dick, Game of Thrones, and pirate lore, and readers will be drawn in and fascinated."―Booklist (starred review) on The Bone Ships

"Simultaneously gritty and full of a sense of wonder,
The Bone Ships is the perfect adventure for anyone who's ever had dreams of the sea-or of dragons ... an excellent book for any reader in search of a fantastical journey."―BookPage on The Bone Ships

RJ Barker is a critically acclaimed and award-winning author of fantasy fiction. He won the 2020 British Fantasy Society (BFS) Robert Holdstock award for Best Novel for his fourth novel, The Bone Ships.

His debut trilogy The Wounded Kingdom (Age of Assassins, Blood of Assassins and King of Assassins) was nominated for the David Gemmel Award, the Kitschie Golden Tentacle, The Compton Crook and the BFS Best Debut and Best Novel awards. It was called ‘Thoroughly entertaining and constantly impressive’ by the Fantasy Hive, ‘One of the best fantasy series you will ever read’ by the BFS, and ‘A singular sensational new voice in epic fantasy’ by Kings of the Wyld author Nicholas Eames.

He followed this with the award-winning Tide Child Trilogy: The Bone Ships, Call of the Bone Ships and The Bone Ship's Wake. These books have been hailed as “One of the most interesting and original fantasy worlds I’ve seen in years” by Adrian Tchaikovsky, and “Brilliant” by Robin Hobb, alongside rave reviews in Starburst, SFX, and a starred review in Booklist: ‘A unique and memorable world – harsh and brutal and full of fully realized, powerful female characters. Barker has managed to craft a story inspired by Moby Dick, Game of Thrones, and pirate lore, and readers will be drawn in and fascinated.’

RJ lives in Leeds with his wife, son and a collection of questionable taxidermy, odd art, scary music and more books than they have room for. He grew up reading whatever he could get his hands on, and has always been 'that one with the book in his pocket'. Having played in rock bands before deciding he was a rubbish musician, RJ returned to his first love, fiction.
