"Robin Hobb is one of our very best fantasy writers."
New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson

With Dragon Keeper, Robin Hobb, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling "master fantasist" (Baltimore Sun), begins a breathtaking new series about the resurgence of dragons in a world that both needs and fears them--the world Hobb's readers most recently visited in her immensely popular "Tawny Man" trilogy. Volume One of the Rain Wilds Chronicles, Dragon Keeper is yet another magnificent adventure from the author of The Soldier Son and Farseer Trilogies, confirming the Contra Costa Times of California's assessment of Hobb as "one of the most important writers in 21st century fantasy."

A bleed off of the Liveship traders books. Very fun.

Couldn't put it down. I don't usually read the same author sequentially because the novelty wears off. Started in with Dragon Haven and couldn't but it down.

Dragons are cool, but they have become so overused that they have started to lose that coolness. Enter Robin Hobb; these are not your typical dragons, for they are flawed and abandoned. Not only do they have their physical, and emotional problems, but they have to rely on people to survive. Unlike most dragons which are essentially perfect, these are on a journey of growth with their partners. For a story so full of struggles, there is a strange sense of hope by the end.

I am a huge Robin Hobb fan since her assassin series, don't miss these three books, I laughed, I cried, I loved this trilogy. Having said this the first book of the Rain Wilds Chronicles was pretty good. I was hooked, I enjoyed it and I look forward to the next book, what more could there be.

If you like Hobbs' work as I do, you would consider this quite enjoyable but not necessarily her best work. That remembers to be seen in the sequel, but it should be at least 4/5
