Blood of Dragons
Blood of Dragons | Robin Hobb
Years ago, the magnificent dragon queen Tintaglia forged a bargain with the inhabitants of the treacherous Rain Wilds. In exchange for her protection against enemy invaders, the humans promised to protect an unhatched brood of dragons. But when the dragons emerged as weak and misshapen hatchlings unable to fend for themselves, dragonkind seemed doomed to extinction. When even Tintaglia deserted the crippled young dragons, the Rain Wilders abandoned the burden of caring for the destructive and ravenous creatures. They were banished to a dangerous and grueling journey in search of their ancient dragon homeland, the lost city of Kelsingra, accompanied by a band of young and inexperienced human keepers, also deemed damaged and disposable.Against all odds they have found the fabled city, yet myriad challenges remain. Sintara, Mercor, Heeby, Relpda, and the rest of the dragons struggle to find their wingsand their independence. Their human escorts, too, must contend with unsettling upheaval: Thymara, Tats, Rapskal, Sedric, and the others are transforming into Elderlingstrue dragon companions. As old rules give way to new alliances, secret fears, and adult desires, the keepers must redefine their lives as they attempt to reawaken Kelsingra to its former glory. But gaps in the dragons' memories leave them all struggling to recover the magic that once animated the great city.As the young Elderlings risk "memory walking" in the city's hidden history, an outside threat is growing. The Duke of Chalced has dispatched his forces to the Rain Wilds with a compelling mission: slaughter the dragons in an attempt to stave off his own demise. The tide of history is about to turn on a life-and-death battle that will ultimately decide the dragons' fate. If they win, the regal serpents will rule the world once more. And if they lose, they will vanish from the world forever.

Well that was a fast read 😳 so answered questions and concluded as I thought it would. Great characters and finishing storyline... or is it this could have more to the story or a runoff story from these ... so I‘ll have to investigate 😋

Deifio I think you're missing the last of the Fitz and the Fool storyline 🤔😘 1mo

I just finished the last book in the Rain Wilds Chronicles by Robin Hobb. I would recommend the series, it's well-written and had my attention throughout. However, I found the ending to be rushed. I would have liked to follow the characters for a little longer.
If you like fantasy, these are worth reading.

TrishB Agreed👍🏻Robin Hobb is my fav fantasy author 2y

Beautiful culmination of a wonderful series. Everything is tied up as much as it should be. I especially like how it isn't a perfect "the end" inasmuch as all social issues are worked out, but it finished with the same satisfaction as a great dinner with expectation of a light and sweet dessert.
