Review | The Dragon Keeper | Robin Hobb

The Dragon Keepers have to herd the dragons to find their lost legendary city, Kelsingra. Yep. That's it ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

What I liked:

โœ… interesting characters, particularly the complex, interesting, relatable female characters

โœ… featuring Hobb's great prose

โœ… more world-building, yay!

โœ… cameos from familiar faces


What I didn't like:

โœ– takes almost 600 pages to say what it could have in 300

โœ– no climax; no tension; no action

โœ– the most exciting thing were the hunters fighting over elk meat. yup, that's right. elk meat.

โœ– it takes half of the book to actually get started on their journey

โœ– slow character building and detailed scenes become tedious and trivial

Rating 3/5 ๐ŸŒŸ

Genre: Fantasy

Verdict: for the solid Hobb fans
