Publisher's Summary

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. Rivalries and romances are already threatening to disrupt the band of explorers - but external forces may prove to be even more dangerous.

Chalcedean merchants are keen to lay hands on dragon blood and organs to turn them to medicines and profit. Their traitor has infiltrated the expedition and will stop at nothing to obtain the coveted body parts. And then there are the Rain Wilds themselves: mysterious, unstable, and ever perilous, its mighty river running with acid, its jungle impenetrable, and its waterways uncharted.

Will the expedition reach its destination unscathed? Does the city of Kelsingra even exist? Only one thing is certain: the journey will leave none of the dragons nor their human companions unchanged by the experience.

    "Adventure!"

    The first book was setting up a lot of the background. This book begins the action. It was a good listen and I love Anne Flosnik as a narrator.

    "Disappointed"
    What would have made Dragon Haven better?

    Take out the sex, sexual overtone, and homosexual situations.


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

    Stick to telling the story without sex.


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

    Anne Flosnik is a great narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and frusteration

    "Too many love stories in this book for my taste"

    The narrator for these stories is phenomenal. It just feels like a giant love story and I wanted to read about the dragons, not about which keeper love which and how they feel about it.

    "Awesome!"

    Loved the new characters. Can't wait to see how the dragons progress. Good read, or listen, all the way.

    Story
    "Slow but Sure Progress"
    Would you listen to Dragon Haven again? Why?

    I might given enough time between readings....otherwise I wouldn't focus on the story...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thymara.....this character is tough and resilient enough to get through the difficulties of dealing with her dragon.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dragon Keeper. I have resigned myself to the way she is speaking--it's still not my 'cup of tea' but I will go on to the next book just I can see what happens now that the dragons have gotten to Kelsingra.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No due to the number of hours.

    "Bad apple out of the bunch"

    All the other books have been great. BUT this book was full of teeny bopper flirting and a ton of "alternative" lifestyle storytelling. It made all the traders and hunters in this book sound like a bunch of pansies compared to all the other books.

    Story
    "Should be combined with the first"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is 500 pages of dragon grooming and feeding, while traveling up a river. With some pigeon grooming and feed mixed in for some variety.

    The first two books should have been combined into one book, as this story is just so slow.

    "Good story...narrator not bad"

    The narrator of this series takes a little getting used to...I think she would be more suited to children's books. Great continuation of the story.
