    Story
    (285)

    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"
    "Up to Hobb's Usual High Standards!!!"
    Overall

    This is a great book, consistent with Robin Hobb's usual high standards! Of course, Anne Flosnik's narration only adds to the story - it seems to me that Hobb's and Flosnik's styles are perfectly suited to one another and combine to make Hobb's book even that much better.

    I must disagree with the other reviewer - having read/listened to the first book in Brent Weeks' Night Angel Trilogy, I would NOT recommend it. Weeks does not possess the maturity as a writer and I kept getting the feeling that portions had been written by a 15-year old male. The first book in the trilogy was tolerable at best and I do not plan to read the other two. I feel like I wasted time reading the first one.

    However, after finishing the second book in Hobb's The Rain Wilds Chronicles today, I feel a warm glow when I think about the progression of the characters from the first book and excitement as I look forward to the third installment!
