Anyone going to read Robin Hobb's latest Rain Wilds Chronicles
novel Blood of Dragons?

I just got the book in the mail. I know its publishing date isn't till April 8th,
but it seems it is already on sale here in the Netherlands. I only found out
about this one a week ago and checked it immediately at the "local" store.

I just started a reread of the series, to refresh my memory.

I totally forgot about that book! I will be reading it when it becomes available on my Kindle. I suppose they'll be a little more careful with that release date.

i just read the far seer trilogy and got to mad ship on the live ship trilogy. the reading was really slow, and i just stopped reading it. i thought it was good and everything, just the story moves at a really slow pace and the chapters are so meaty and dense, and i got sidetracked with something else. always wanted to return to that trilogy to get to the next one that looked really good, and see what the fool was all about. i just finished a book called the broken blade by kelly mccullough. its a real short book but it was pretty good. i like this type of books and im looking into reading rest of these and eli monpress afterwards. kinda reminds me of the ryria novels and the night angel trilogy mixed togethor. the hundred thousand kingdoms looks interesting too.

I'll definitely be reading the final Rain Wild Chronicles book when it comes out. It's on my top 3 series that will be finished this year together wit WoT and the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

Right now I'm reading the Hunger Games trilogy. It's taking me a long time since I can only snag some reading time here and there.

Got it Tuesday, but was so busy I didn't start reading until 2 days ago. Now I'm almost halfway through and having a jolly good time!

Regarding Covenant, it's one of the first fantasy series I read, so I love it unconditionally. There are a lot of people who don't like the books though, in particular the hate for the main character is pretty widespread. He is a hard man to like, but it's intentional. Donaldson takes the "anti" in anti-hero seriously. If you can deal with that, some of the supporting characters are absolutely awesome, and the story is a classic good vs. evil, with some nice twists.

Regarding Blood of Dragons, I be done! And I thoroughly enjoyed it too. I'd say Hobb still has a problem writing endings, but I will overlook that.
