Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

"Robin Hobb is one of our very best fantasy writers."
New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson

With Dragon Keeper, Robin Hobb, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling "master fantasist" (Baltimore Sun), begins a breathtaking  new series about the resurgence of dragons in a world that both needs and fears them-the world Hobb's readers most recently visited in her immensely popular "Tawny Man" trilogy. Volume One of the Rain Wilds Chronicles, Dragon Keeper is yet another magnificent adventure from the author of  The Soldier Son and Farseer Trilogies, confirming the Contra Costa Times of California's assessment of Hobb as "one of the most important writers in 21st century fantasy."

Review Quote*"In a novel as good as it is massive, the first of two Rain Wilds Chronicles...Hobb continues to occupy a perch at or near the top among contemporary fantasists. This book is imaginative, literate, and compassionate from first page to last."
Review Quote*"Hobb does an admirable job of creating a complex and engaging medieval fantasy world …with originality and subtlety [she handles] such traditional fantasy elements as dragons and magical items…A nicely imagined fantasy setting that will engage readers and raise anticipation for the second installment.
Review Quote*"Hobb's meticulously realized fantasy tale is a welcome addition to contemporary dragon lore."
