“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.”

Robin Hobb was born in California but grew up in Alaska. It was there that she learned to love the forest and the wilderness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Build Up This was a great read. I was intensely interested in each character whose perspective we followed. That being said, beware: this book feels like a pure build up to whatever will follow. It seems to be pretty necessary to the following books (though I have not read them yet so I cannot say for certain) but the whole read is spent moving towards something. Hopefully that something will happen in the next installment. Overall very enjoyable. You have to be okay with dialogue and character thoughts in place of events to get through it.
