Fire and brimstone

Monday, September 06, 2010

The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb is one of the many thrilling books by this well-accepted author, and her fans will grab this one which continues the saga in the Realm of the Elderlings series.

The story is based in the Rain Wilds, a strangely fascinating place near the city of Bingtown. The dragons emerge from the cocoons they had first entered into as serpents, somewhere deep in the mysterious Rain Wilds. They have emerged ‘stunted and deformed, they cannot fly; some appear witless and bestial.’ They are to be moved to Kelsingra, the fabled ancient city they have always longed to go through.

Delve into the lives of the protagonists as they cope with their trials and tribulations, and their also joys as they pursue their dreams: Sintara, the arrogant queen dragon, stunted and unable to fly, Thymara, a malformed and ostracised Rain Wilder who has to cope with her own mother’s hatred, Alise Kincarron, a Bingtown trader’s daughter at odds with her husband – she is obsessed with studying the dragons and the Elderlings who look after them, Leftrin, the owner and captain of an old-styled liveship.
