The dragon keepers and the fledgling dragons are forging a passage up the treacherous Rain Wild River. They are in search of the mythical Elderling city of Kelsingra and are accompanied by the liveship Tarman, its captain, Leftrin, and a group of hunters who must search the forests for game with which to keep the dragons fed.

With them are Alise, who has escaped her cold marriage to the cruel libertine Hest Finbok in order to continue her study of dragons, and Hest’s amanuensis, Bingtown dandy Sedric. Rivalries and romances are already threatening to disrupt the band of explorers—but external forces may prove to be even more dangerous.

Chalcedean merchants are keen to lay hands on dragon blood and organs to turn them to medicines and profit. Their traitor has infiltrated the expedition and will stop at nothing to obtain the coveted body parts. And then there are the Rain Wilds themselves: mysterious, unstable, and ever perilous, its mighty river running with acid, its jungle impenetrable, and its waterways uncharted.

Will the expedition reach its destination unscathed? Does the city of Kelsingra even exist? Only one thing is certain: the journey will leave none of the dragons nor their human companions unchanged by the experience.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The second volume of the Rain Wilds Chronicles shows Hobb again working at the highest level of contemporary fantasy, to which her creativity with dragons adds additional—there’s no other word for it—majesty…The Rain Wilds is one of the most gripping settings in modern fantasy…Let us applaud, and shelve this with the rest of Hobb’s magisterial fantasy fiction, though it won’t stay on the shelf long.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Vanessa Baldwin | 2/19/2014

    " There are some really great moments and characters in this trilogy, and even paragraphs that I would quote, in relevant situations (that have nothing to do with fantasy dragon worlds). Love Ms. Hobb. I think what she expresses in her stories, the themes, are so astute and realized and her characters are complex and yet so compelling. Check her out, she is great. "

    " Sequel to Dragon Keeper. Think of the two volumes as a single book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Didi | 2/16/2014

    " Perfect? No, but still satisfying. I look forward to the next book in the series. "

    " I see what everyone is saying about how sometimes as you're reading you're all like, REDUNDANTSAUCE or, SPIT IT OUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH, HOBB. I get it now, I do. But even so, rewarding read, totally worth the slow buildup. Here I come Book 3, then on to the galley! Sheesh. Wish me luck. "
