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.
Too much time spent repeating what happened in previous books and not enough time progressing the story. This whole book is just about a one-way trip and I am not happy at spending $15 for it.
Half a book
It's an ok read if your jonesing for some fantasy. Really I dont think this should have been released at all. This series is a departion from RH's standard trilogy format and I can only assume the splitting of the third book was done for financial reasons. Not nice to do to your fans RH. So yeah, I'll buy the fourth book to finish up but I promise I will buy no more RH going forward; if there is a forward.
Another excellent book from Robin Hobb! I love the Rain Wild Chronicles! I can't wait for the next book and I hope there is another one after that!
