Overview

The final volume in Robin Hobb's popular Rain Wilds fantasy series, Blood of Dragons completes the story of the dragons, their keepers, and their quest to find the lost city of Kelsingra—and the mythical silver wells that the dragons need to survive.

Can Tintaglia and the Elderlings unlock the secrets of the ancient city? Or are they doomed to extinction?

The world of Robin Hobb’s Rain Wilds series has been praised by Booklist as "one of the most gripping settings in modern fantasy," and Publishers Weekly called the Rain Wilds books "a meticulously realized fantasy tale" and "a welcome addition to contemporary dragon lore."

This is my second reading.  I just had me knee replaced and while I am waiting to be dancing a jig I decided to get into the books again.  I missed some things the first time around.

Like so many others who love Robin Hobb I was left feeling extremely disappointed by the first two books in this series. Don't give up! The third was pure Hobb. Maybe one of my all time favourites, and I have read everyone of her books.

Robin Hobb is an AMAZING writer, and I love her stories! The stories in the Rain Wilds Chronicles are no less fantastic than her other novels. The characters, world, and politics are rich and complex and very interesting. I do have one complaint though: there are same-sex relationships that I was not expecting to come across. I was well into the series and had purchased all the books before stumbling across this element. I had no reason to assume it would be there and I felt ambushed by the topic as if it were an agenda item. It does not improve the storyline; if it weren't there the main storyline wouldn't change, so I felt like it was there for no other reason than as an agenda point. If I knew it was there beforehand, I wouldn't have purchased since it's not a topic I follow or care to explore. If you are considering the purchase, and the same-sex theme doesn't matter to you, you will likely enjoy the stories, character development, Hobb's writing style.

The final book in The Rain Wild Chronicles didn't leave me disappointed. The story moved along swiftly and there were no parts in the story that got bogged down tempting you to skip a few pages just to get on with the story. It was told mainly in two or three different parts but switched back and forward enough to remember what was happening in the other part. Just when you were about to give up hope there would be another twist and your faith would be restored. I think Robin Hobb is conscious of what her readers want to happen and I would have been disappointed if things didn't go the way that they did. Loved this book and didn't want it to finish while on the other hand I couldn't wait to read the final chapter.
