Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

the best story ever murdered

Would you try another book written by Robin Hobb or narrated by Anne Flosnik?

I'm a huge fan of the Rain Wild books. This was to be the best of them all with dragons finally taking to the air and so many loose ends to tie up. It utterly beggars belief that you'd get Anne Flosnik to read this. She reads like she's being paid by the word and her rent is overdue. I've never had to listen to a book at half speed before just to make it sound at least vaguely dramatic. I'm utterly and completely at a loss to recommend this to anyone based on that performance. If anything this has murdered my experience of Robin Hobb's writing and audio books in general.

why change the narrator AGAIN?!?

The first book in this series was read by Saskia Butler, then it changed to another, and ruined it, went back to the first for the third book, and now its changed to a third? Seriously why? Its ruined the series for me, as it feels 'wrong'.

I've given up listening to this series already.
