I must have listened to a different recording then the other reviewers. I thought this book was the best of the first three and the first two were very good. I got lots of story for my money, more character development, and dragons that are real dragons. Dragons with attitude as it should be. You can start here and enjoy the book, but you really should start at the beginning. Matter of fact I would suggest you start with Ship of Magic and read that trilogy first. Reading the liveship trader trilogy will make this a richer experience. The Liveship Trader trilogy is my favorite fantasy trilogy of all time.
CEDRIC WOULD NO MORE RUN OFF WITH A WOMAN, THEN GROW A SPINE AND ASSERT HIMSELF.
I will agree with some others that their is a lot in this book that basically sets up the next book. I find it exciting to know that these characters are going to get involved more and what is the city going to be like? Watch out for chapter 10, it is the most emotional, scary, disgusting, and fantastic chapter of any book I have ever read. If you could win an award for best chapter, Hobb should get it for chapter 10. I will admit Hobb speaks to me, I am always amazed in how well she develops her characters. I am amazed in her insight into the human condition and how she is able to write about it in story form. I will say that if you have read any Hobb, with the exception of the Tawny Man trilogy and you don't already feel the way I do, then this will not change your mind. If you love Hobb, this is more of he same.
Flosnik is perfect for Robin Hobb books. I would not want her to read The Godfather, but her voice adds to the mood and atmosphere set in Robin Hobb's books.

I just finished the audiobook and was disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I love Robin Hobb and most all of her books, but I knew something was wrong with this book when I saw that this book was only 13 hours when all of her others were at least 20+. Without any spoilers I felt this book was all filler drama to make an extra buck. This can't be the end of the series because there was not much progress from the last book. New problems that were introduced in this book were not even resolved. Anyways all bagging on the story aside, I was glad I read it. It wasn't horrible, it just felt incomplete and like it had no real ending.
