    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.

    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.

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    Robert says: "What's Your god like?"
    "Bad book, bad reader, bad idea to buy this book"
    Overall

    This book is awful. If I’d started with this one, I wouldn’t have ever picked up another book by Sanderson. Why Brandon, why? You’re so much better than this. The reader is worse. His cadence is off and he makes Lightfoot sound like a surfer dude. Sanderson should have BEGGED Michael Kramer to do the reading!

    Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch, and Publishers Weekly says his debut is "outstanding." Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    Lore says: "What if your body could never heal?"

    Overall

    I'm so-oo-oo glad I read the Mistborn series first. If I had read this one first, I
    wouldn't have read another single book by this author.

    The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan. In Illian, Rand vows the Seanchan back as he did once before while in Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himselg.

    Overall

    Like other loyal followers of the WOT saga, I was thrilled when this book finally showed up on Audible. However, even though the book progresses the story, it does so laboriously and I got absolutely lost in the maze of new characters. It also didn’t help that the two readers changed some pronunciations from the earlier books. Nonetheless, I can overlook Path’s flaws given how wonderful the overall series has been. Mr. Jordan was a prodigious talent, with great imagination and I mourn his passing.
