    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"
    "Drags on a bit"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of Robin Hobb, and have loved all of her series. This book is good, but it seems like a little more of the same of the first. I thought there would be more of a change but it seems the whole voyage up the Rain Wild river drags on and on. I know it's a long journey for the characters in the story, but almost two full books of the same thing gets a bit boring. I was still interested in the story and do look forward to the next book.

    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    Lorena says: "Something altogether new"
    "Worth your cedit!"
    Overall

    I read this series in paperback a few years ago, and I fell in love with it then(So did my mom and sister!). Listening to the audio book has been equally as enjoyable. I am a big fan of fantasy, and for me this series ranks with The Wheel of Time. The narration is perfect! I look forward to seeing the rest of Robin Hobb's books on audio.

    Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman.

    Overall

    I forced myself to finish the first six hours. After that I gave it a few more hours but couldn't take it anymore! There are not many books I have not finished reading. There are no audiobooks that I have not finished listening to until I got this one.
