    Once, dragons ruled the Rain Wilds, tended by privileged human servants known as Elderlings. But a series of cataclysmic eruptions nearly drove these magnificent creatures to extinction. Born weak and deformed, the last of their kind had one hope for survival: to return to their ancient city of Kelsingra. Accompanied by a disparate crew of untested young keepers, the dragons embarked on a harsh journey into the unknown along the toxic Rain Wild River.

    Story
    What did you love best about City of Dragons?

    I really became invested in the characters, especially the dragons. Sintara is wonderfully developed and Thymara is her equal in every way. I frequently forgot that Mercor (was he the wise old serpent in the first Liveship book?) was a dragon and Hebe wasn’t a frisky puppy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thymara, of course. That girl has skills and guts. Tats was a close second.


    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dragons. I never thought I'd invest in a book with talking dragons, but this one really pulled me in.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved when Sedric and Carson came together.


    Any additional comments?

    My only disappointment with the book was Hobb’s inconsistencies with Malta, one of my favorite characters. When did her dark hair become golden? And when did Ephraim Vestrit become her father? She didn’t even like the man. Kyle Haven was her adored father. Sloppy. But I’m willing to forgive and forget if Hobb writes a final book (longer this time please!) to wrap up the series.
