    The dragon keepers and the fledgling dragons are forging a passage up the treacherous Rain Wild River. They are in search of the mythical Elderling city of Kelsingra and are accompanied by the liveship Tarman, its captain, Leftrin, and a group of hunters who must search the forests for game with which to keep the dragons fed. With them are Alise, who has escaped her cold marriage to the cruel libertine Hest Finbok in order to continue her study of dragons, and Hest's amanuensis, Bingtown dandy Sedric.

    Joe says: "A very LITTLE better than the first book"
    "Disappointing."

    Story
    What disappointed you about Dragon Haven?

    I've listened to the first 2 books so far. Will not listen to the rest of the serious. The books may have dragons in them..but they aren't fantasy books. They are gay/hetero romance novels. Bordering on Harlequin.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robin Hobb again?

    Yes, I love several of her books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    No. Horrible reader. Has a tedious tendency to elongate every syllable at the end of a sentencsssssssss. It was almost embarrassing to listen to out loud. My wife even commented, wondering if it was a horror novel and the narrator was trying to sound evil.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The basic premise of the story was interesting and could have been fleshed out more..unless the author intended romance to be the story.
