    Description

    For years, the Trader cities valiantly battled their enemies, the Chalcedeans. But they could not have staved off invasion without the powerful dragon, Tintaglia. In return, the Traders promised to help her serpents migrate up the Rain Wild River after a long exile at sea - to find a safe haven and, Tintaglia hopes, to restore her species.

    But too much time has passed, and the newly hatched dragons are damaged and weak, and many die. The few who survive cannot use their wings; earthbound, they are powerless to hunt and vulnerable to human predators willing to kill them for the fabled healing powers of dragon flesh.

    But Tintaglia has vanished, and the Traders are weary of the labor and expense of tending useless dragons. The Trader leadership fears that if it stops providing for the young dragons, the hungry and neglected creatures will rampage - or die along the river’s acidic muddy banks.

    To avert catastrophe, the dragons decree a move even farther up the treacherous river to Kelsingra, their ancient, mythical homeland whose mysterious location is locked deep within the dragons’ uncertain ancestral memories. To ensure their safe passage, the Traders recruit a disparate group of young people to care for the damaged creatures and escort them to their new home. Among them is Thymara, an unschooled forest girl of 16, and Alise, a wealthy Trader’s wife trapped in a loveless marriage, who attaches herself to the expedition as a dragon expert. The two women share a deep kinship with the dragons: Thymara can instinctively communicate with them, and Alise, captivated by their beauty and majesty, has devoted her life to studying them.

    Embarking on an arduous journey that holds no promise of return, the band of humans and dragons must make its way along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River - an extraordinary odyssey that will teach them lessons about themselves and one another as they experience hardships, betrayals, and joys beyond their wildest dreams.

    I knew I have already listened to this!

    This is not the first book I would read if I were just starting to listen to Robin Hobb's books. Seems you maybe able to start here if you'd like, but I think I like it more because of the other Robin Hobb series of books that I have already listened to.
    I was so confused as I was listening to this. I knew that I have heard this book before, but the release date was 2020, and I listened years ago. After some online research seems audible has released this again with a new narrator. I can't find the old one in my library. I feel kind of ripped off as now I have to buy two new books if I want to listen to them again :(

    Great Dragon Tale; boring "Harlequin" romance

    Books one and two weave two storylines. Storyline A is a relatively slow-moving and introspective tale of dragons and their keepers - all finding their identity. Storyline B is about men hiding their true love identity. "A" could appeal to younger readers who love dragons. "B" will confound where to shelve the books. I do wish the two stories could be separated so that one could choose which story to read.

    Good start and continuation from Liveship Traders

    It sorta continues the story from the earlier Liveship Traders trilogy, but with new characters. Some old characters make cameos. But you definitely at least need to read that trilogy first, if not all the other previous Robin Hobb books.

    I like the characterization. Some characters are more good and some more bad, but they are all three dimensional with their own motivations that make sense. There are a few different point-of-view characters, but their stories converged soon enough, which I appreciated.

    The ending was very abrupt and caught me off guard. It wasn't really much of an ending. Just something to be continued in the next book. But it was a good start, and I'm interested to see where it goes.

    I love me some Robin Hobb! She just gets me.

    I'm not good at reviews and I don't know which books you've already read. You might want to go all the way back to The Tawney Man Trilogy. Hobb is a master. The narration was a little jarring but she did a decent job. although she took me out of the story quite often. this may be one of those authors that you just have to read.

    Promising, but very slow to start

    I find the premise of the story interesting and generally wanted to know what came next. However, I feel like the book should have started in the middle of the story rather than devoting almost half of it to a very slow lead-up, where everything could easily have been established during the action and then saved us several hours of wondering when the really interesting stuff would start. It does eventually start, though (even if the book does end in the middle of that), and we can feel like the main characters are finally having room to grow and develop and realize their competence.

    There's a fine line to walk with characters who are meant to be hated... It's easy to make a character despicable while making it such a generic kind of awful that you're not even sure they'll get a satisfying comeuppance, or when it will happen, or if there will be any justice for the people they've been awful to. It does seem like there will be some justice in this series, but it can be frustrating to listen to such a character spout off and know that it will likely be a long time before they find their downfall/redemption (depending on the character).

    Good story but....

    I have enjoyed Hobbs, books I do wish they were a little more clearly defined as to order. The overlap between series can be confusing.

    The narrator is fairly good. I find the multiple final “r”s to be annoying. Sometimes there seem to be five or six in herrrrrr. Aggrrrggghhh!

    Classic Hobb

    Every time I read these novels I like them more and more!

    I love seeing the relationships develop and I feel that is the real hallmark of a Robin Hobb novel! She really delves into the human aspect while adding in dragons and magic! I think Thymara is very reminiscent of Fitz because I often want to smack her due to her inability to comprehend people and see the obvious! Can’t wait for the next book!

    Longing and intrigue, plus dragons

    Wasn't expecting this much romantic longing and relational issues in this book, but it did fit the story even if a bit much for my taste. Definitely adds more details around dragons and the rainwilds, but you would be missing out on a lot (plus getting some spoilers) if this is your first read in the series.

    Good

    Good, but it just sort of ends. Usually a book in a series still has some sort of satisfying end to it, but this one just kinda stops. It teases some mystery and I do want to read the next one, so job done I guess. The abrupt end just to me for surprise.
