HARPERCOLL

New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb returns to world of the Rain Wilds—called “one of the most gripping settings in modern fantasy” (Booklist)—in City of Dragons. Continuing the enthralling journey she began in her acclaimed Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven, Hobb rejoins a small group of weak, half-formed and unwanted dragons and their displaced human companions as they search for a legendary sanctuary. Now, as the misfit band approaches its final destination, dragons and keepers alike face a challenge so insurmountable that it threatens to render their long, difficult odyssey utterly meaningless. Touching, powerful, and dazzlingly inventive, Hobb’s City of Dragons is not to be missed—further proof that this author belongs alongside Raymond E. Feist, Terry Brooks, and Lois McMaster Bujold in the pantheon of fantasy fiction’s true greats.

I have been pleasantly surprised with this series so far! I'm on book 4 and have enjoyed each book. I've read every other Robin Hobb series and am happy this one is also well written. I would recommend this to others.

I was terribly disappointed by this book, to me not a whole ot happened. It felt like Hobb needed to get this book released because it had been two years. Much of what was accomplished in these 334 pages would have taken a third of that in either of the previous two books in this series. Hopefully the next one in this series is a little better....Overall, the series is better than averave.

Warning! This book is not the conclusion of the Rain Wilds series. There will be at least one more. New characters are introduced. The stage is set for a grand finale. As ever Hobbs provides interesting characters who are often not all good or all bad. Elsingra is awakened. A dragon flies. Love blossoms.
