Overview

City of Dragons (Rain Wilds Chronicles #3) by Robin Hobb

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.

So far this is a great series.I want the next book. Come on Robin, don't do the WOT thing like Robert Jordan. To long between books is not fair to your fans.

The most common complaint for this book is that it was incomplete for a trilogy. Robin Hobb posted a while back in her journal that this was intended to be a trilogy, but she has expanded it to be four books so she could tell the story better. "Blood of Dragons" should be out sometime in the next year.

Without knowing anything about the author or any of the books. I took a chance and really loved the series. When you finish the first one, you can't wait to read the second, and so on.

I would recommend all of Robin Hobb's books. I've read around nine of the books so far and love all of them. There is one set and the last of the Rain Wilds Chronicles at least book #4 that I haven't read yet, but I'm sure I'll love them as much as the rest.

Love all her work. As normal the story ends exactly when you don't want it too. Can't wait for book 4 to come out.

Hobb is known for long sprawling fantasy. The writing style is the same that i have come to know and love, but when i buy a hobb book i expect at least five to six hundred pages of fantastic adventure. There is obviously more she has to say about the charaters, so why not include that in this book instead of having the ending of this book feel so incomplete. I feel like i am being ripped off by this "chronicle" when the first three books could have been condensed into one or two of a trilogy like hobbs books normally are. I feel as if hobb or her publishers are taking advantage of me and causing me to pay substantially more for less product.

Not quite as good as the second book in the series (Dragon Haven), but still a good read. The author has a tendency of rehashing some of the story lines as if the reader forgot what the read a couple of chapters ago, but the characters are still interesting and the story is exciting.
