Feature Friday: W1n Robin Hobbs’ CITY OF DRAGONS


Today’s featured book is CITY OF DRAGONS, a new fantasy novel from author Robin Hobb. I said once I shied away from books with dragons in them…unless they’re hot guys who shift into dragons, which is, well, hot. But, okay, the Rain Wild Chronicles series sounds interesting. See what you think, and comment to be entered to win a copy!
ABOUT THE BOOK: The dragons and their keepers have reached Kelsingra, the mythic city of Elderling lore. But between the creatures and their ultimate goal lie almost insurmountable obstacles, including the dragsons’ own stunted, flightless forms, their keepers’ desperation, the acidic, poisoned waters of the Rain Wilds River, and the evil forces that would like nothing more than to butcher the fabulous beasts for ill-gotten reward. The Rain Wilds provides a dramatic backdrop to the intrigue and danger that surround the dragons and their keepers—and the ruins of Kelsingra provide a rich canvas for Hobb’s intricate tale. For as the stones of the city sing to the keepers, luring them to lose themselves in the memories of richer, more magical days of yore, downriver, in the seething city of Bingtown, wicked plans fester, ensnaring characters familiar to readers of Hobb’s Liveship Traders trilogy.

  1. Robin Hobb is one of my favourite authors 🙂

    My favourite dragon story… Hmm… I’ll go for an obscure one: ‘Grendel’ by John Gardner, where the dragon is this mesmerising, existential entity. Deep, man, deep…

    I already follow you on Twitter (I’m @JinxedJester), and have RTed! 🙂

  2. My favorite story so far is a series with a guy that turns into a dragon (his name is Smoky) written by Yasmine Galenorn… I can’t honestly say I recall reading a dragon story, but if I won this book I would totally give it a shot!
    I follow you and will RT the link!

  5. Song in the Silence by Elizabeth Kerner. It’s a beautifully written and enchanting story, in which a human woman and a dragon find themselves caught by the desire to form a forbidden friendship with another species, and end up falling in love – and shapeshifting is not a draconic ability in this world. A love that surpasses the physical, a friendship that defies laws and sentences them both to death, and demon who was promised the woman’s soul at her birth: some relationships are hard; others might just be impossible.

  8. Oh I do love me the dragons. I have been enjoying Robin Hobbs series for a while, but I would have to say that Anne McCaffrey took my heart away to the dragons with her Pern series.

  10. Finally, an easy question! My favourite dragons are the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. I love and have read those books so very often. Total comfort reads for me now, just like most of her other series.

  11. There aren’t a lot of books about Dragons and while I enjoy the Pern series as wewll, I’m going to be a little different and say I loved The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde – it was fun and brilliant read!

  12. I love Robin Hobb too!

    Favorite dragon book – probably The Hobbit. Not technically about a dragon, but Smaug is an awesome creature. After that, I’d go with Dragon Bones by Patricia Briggs.

  14. Robin Hobb is my favorite author! I don’t think I’ll be able to, but I wish I could see her at the RT Convention coming up.

    So of course her series of books (Farseer, Liveship Traders, Tawny Man, Rainwild Chronicles) is likely my favorite use of dragons! But, to mix it up, I’ll give special mention to the Chronicles trilogy of DragonLance books by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I was in my late teens when I read them and they helped cement my love of the fantasy genre. Of course, I highly recommend all of the above. 🙂

  15. Well, I think I fell in love with Yorsh and Erbrow reading Silvana De Mari’s “The last dragon”. I also love Robin Hobb’s books VERY much, but Erbrow was…my first dragon.
