Description

The final installment of Robin Hobb’s Sunday Times best-selling series The Rain Wild Chronicles.

Dragon blood and scales, dragon liver and eyes and teeth. All required ingredients for medicines with near-miraculous healing powers. The legendary blue dragon Tintaglia is dying of wounds inflicted by hunters sent by the Duke of Chalced, who meanwhile preserves his dwindling life by consuming the blood of the dragon’s poet Selden Vestrit.

If Tintaglia perishes, her ancestral memories will die with her. And the dragons in the ancient city of Kelsingra will lose the secret knowledge they need to survive. Their keepers immerse themselves in the dangerously addictive memory-stone records of the city in the hope of recovering the Elderling magic that once allowed humans and dragons to co-exist. In doing so they risk losing their own identities, even their lives. And danger threatens from beyond the city, too. For war is coming: war between dragonkind and those who would destroy them.

Critiques

"In today’s crowded fantasy market, Robin Hobb’s books are like diamonds in a sea of zircons." (George R. R. Martin)
"Hobb is superb, spinning wonderful characters and plots from pure imagination" (Conn Iggulden)
"Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers… what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics." ( The Times)

Great book, good narrator

I loved this book, listened with every opportunity I had and finished it quicker than any earlier book I've listened to.

After listening to four of her narrations, I've come to think that Anne Flosnik is a good narrator. If you've heard her work with the liveship traders, you'll scarcely notice her peculiarities. If this is your first time listening to her work, it'll take some time to get into the groove.

Dreadful narrator, weak book

Sorry, but Anne Flosnik made this audiobook very difficult to enjoy. Breathy, overly dramatic and unsubtle, her narration only served to emphasise the weakest elements of this book. As is often the case with Robin Hobb's last-in-series volumes, Blood of Dragons loses its narrative trim, becoming flabby, discordant and wandering. Even the most well-meaning reader's narrative commitment is taxed. I almost wish I'd stopped after the first three in thus series: the writing and the other narrators are much better.

Good story, terrible narrator

What disappointed you about Blood of Dragons?

I Have read, or listened to, all the books by Robin Hobb uptil this one and she is one of my favorite fantasy writers. As an audiobook, this is a pain to get through. The narrator sounds like a newsreader on whiskey. With her voice all the characters sounds hoarse and angry and I believe this is not what Robin Hobb want to portrait. I recommend the book, but not as an audiobook.

Surprisingly poor.

What did you like best about Blood of Dragons? What did you like least?

Blood of Dragons finished the Rain Wild series in a most mediocre fashion. Dragons vs Chalced , hmm let me see whos gonna win...
Hess degenerated into a borderline retarded caricature of the character in the first book while all the reject keepers become cardboard placeholders.

Im sorry to give a Robin Hobb book such a poor score but this one is quite half arsed.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I was actually looking forward to see Thymara's fathers agricultural experiment in the trees but the author seems to have forgotten about the dude altogether.

How could the performance have been better?

This performance is bad! How can four books be narrated by 3 different people? Saskia Butler did best, the other 2 not so well. Changing narrators brings about different pronunciation of names which ruins continuity.
Chalcedean
Kalcedian
Chalcidian

Could you see Blood of Dragons being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Er no.
Maybe a comedy adaption so bad its good?

Any additional comments?

It hurts me to be so harsh on an author I grew up with. This series started off good but degenerated into half arsery.

A brilliant end to an awesome journey!

Any additional comments?

If you have followed this Tangle since The Liveship Traders prepare yourself for some very happy listening. I have come to love all the keepers and their dragons over the previous three books and it was wonderful to spend time with them again. I felt like each of their victories were my own and to finally take flight with the dragons made me tear up with joy.

There is a new narrator, which is distracting, but give her time and you can get into the swing of it.

Good story, annoying narrator

Like hobbs stories, but what a disappointing narration. The voices Flosnik attemped to act sounded utterly ridicuous.

Die 4 teilige Geschichte ist es wert gelesen zu werden oder vorgelesen zu bekommen. Aber nicht von dieser Sprecherin! Flosnik intoniert nicht nachvollziehbar und mit lächerlich tief angetragener Stimme. Permanent pendelt ihre Performance zwischen ungewollter Komik und akustischer Belästigung. Nie mehr diese Sprecherin. Dann wird wieder selbst gelesen.
