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.
