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.

If you could sum up Dragon Keeper in three words, what would they be?

In a whole its well worth the listening. It is slow and I admit I almost stopped listening after 10 minutes in. But if you stay with it. You will be rewarded with a interesting story.

In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

A Game of Thrones

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-25-04

This book is very intense. Although it starts a little slow, The story line is very gripping and very hard to stop listning. I have already picked up Book II and Book III. This is a must have.
