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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Great book, good narrator

I loved this book, listened with every opportunity I had and finished it quicker than any earlier book I've listened to.

After listening to four of her narrations, I've come to think that Anne Flosnik is a good narrator. If you've heard her work with the liveship traders, you'll scarcely notice her peculiarities. If this is your first time listening to her work, it'll take some time to get into the groove.

Dreadful narrator, weak book

Sorry, but Anne Flosnik made this audiobook very difficult to enjoy. Breathy, overly dramatic and unsubtle, her narration only served to emphasise the weakest elements of this book. As is often the case with Robin Hobb's last-in-series volumes, Blood of Dragons loses its narrative trim, becoming flabby, discordant and wandering. Even the most well-meaning reader's narrative commitment is taxed. I almost wish I'd stopped after the first three in thus series: the writing and the other narrators are much better.

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.

Terrible narration!

The book is fantastic, I thoroughly recommend reading it yourself if you are able as the narration is terrible and ruins truly wonderful story! Very disappointing!
