Library Journal Review

A new generation of dragons promises new life and prosperity to the people who live along the Rain Wild River, but they emerge from their cocoons deformed and sickly. Driven away from human settlements and assigned a group of young misfits as their keepers, the dragons make their dangerous way upriver toward a legendary lost haven, the city of Kelsingra. This journey brings dragons, keepers, and other travelers into conflict with a hostile environment and, most dangerous of all, with one another. Hobb's sequel to Dragon Keeper continues the stories of the Wilding girl Thymara, the Bingtown gentlewoman-turned-naturalist Alyse, and the blue queen dragon Sintara. VERDICT A vividly depicted exotic fantasy background and compelling characters make this a strong, well-written fantasy with broad appeal, particularly to fans of Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels and lovers of dragon lore in general.
