Return to the world of the Liveships Traders and journey along the Rain Wild River in the third instalment of high adventure from the author of the internationally acclaimed Farseer trilogy.
Kelsingra awaits for those brave enough to enter…
The dragons and their keepers have discovered Kelsingra but so far only Heeby has succeeded in flying over the river to enter the fabled city. The other dragons, with their deformed wings and feeble muscles, are afraid to risk failure and humiliation.
But wondrous things await in Kelsingra, a city built for dragons and their Elderling keepers. Alise, overwhelmed by the treasures she finds there, records her finds for posterity. Once the rest of the world knows about the riches the city contains, nothing will ever be the same again.
Already, rumours of the city’s discovery have floated down the Rain Wild River and reached envious ears in Bingtown and beyond. Adventurers, pirates and fortune hunters are coming in droves to pillage what they can from the city. As is Hest Finbok, Alise’s husband…
Meanwhile, Selden Vestrit finds himself a prisoner of the ailing Duke of Chalced, who believes him to be some sort of dragon-man whose flesh and blood may work miracle cures.
Where is Tintaglia, the great sapphire-blue dragon, when all have such need of her? Has she really abandoned her beloved Selden and the fledgling dragons forever? Or will she too return to seek the wonders of Kelsingra?

too much time spent on set up and new characters. it's especially frustrating because I don't see how having those chatlracters' POV added anything to the story.
Writing reviews always gets harder as a series progresses. There's so little to speak of without spoiling something for someone. Are the people reading it those who've gotten this far in the series already and if so, what information are they looking for? Are people scouting ahead to see if it's wor...
City of Dragons not only continues the journey to Kelsingra, but shows us quite a few things referenced in the first couple of books.I enjoyed this one a little better than Dragon Haven and while it's still not quite at the level of previous series, it's a lot more interesting than the previous book...
This is the third book of Robin Hobb's Rain Wild Chronicles series and unfortunately also my least favorite installment so far. That's not to say I didn't like it, but I'm also sensing a definite slowdown compared to the first couple of novels.The book picks up from where we last left our group of d...
First off, I won this book via a giveaway hosted by Goodreads.It is rare that I find a series in which the books can be read alone without being too confusing and yet still swirl you into and irreversibly immerse you in their world.[a:Robin Hobb|25307|Robin Hobb|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/120502...
