    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.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Joe says: "Excellent, Imaginative, Beautiful, Page Turning!!!"
    "By far the best epic fantasy series I've read"

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

    Nick does a great job being able to capture all characters

    After many years, dragons have hatched again outside the ancient city of Cassarick. But something is wrong with the creatures; each is inferior or weak in some way, and many die. Tending these stunted dragons has left the people of the surrounding area weary. The Traders Council, the city's leadership, fears that if the Rain Wilders stop providing for the young dragons, the hungry and neglected creatures will rampage and destroy Cassarick.

    Would you try another book from Robin Hobb and/or Anne Flosnik?

    Most of Mrs. Hobb's stuff is great. This is book sucks. Do not pay for it!


    What could Robin Hobb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not have a terrible book. No mystery, no fool


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

    Anne needs to be a guy with more range in character


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT BUY!
