Dragon Keeper (Rain Wilds Chronicles, Vol. 1)

Robin Hobb
“Robin Hobb is one of our very best fantasy writers.”New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. AndersonWith 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.”

Out of all of Hobb's stories in the Elderlings world, this is the one I've been looking forward to the least. The synopsis of the book just never gripped me, but I enjoy the world that Hobb has built and want to read the books in publication order. Unfortunately, this first book turned out to be what I expected.

While I will say this isn't a bad book, it's not a good one either. It's just kinda there. I didn't love or hate any of the characters, and I didn't love or hate the story. It just felt like what would be 5 or 6 chapters in another novel drawn out to 400 plus pages.

That's pretty much all I have to say about this book.
