The Dragon Keeper, by Robin Hobb
She had us at dragons.
They’ve returned to the Rain Wild, but they’re hatching out weak and deformed, unable to fly. The once-magnificent beasts are too dangerous to keep, too important to kill. So a rag-tag team is chosen to take them back to their fabled home upriver.
These human strangers don’t know where they’re going. They don’t even know if they’ll survive. But they have one chance to make a difference—to save dragonkind from a world that has forgotten its past—and they have to try.
From the publisher:
“Robin Hobb is one of our very best fantasy writers.”
New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson
With Dragon Keeper, Robin Hobb, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling “master fantasist” (Baltimore Sun), begins a breathtaking new series about the resurgence of dragons in a world that both needs and fears them—the world Hobb’s readers most recently visited in her immensely popular “Tawny Man” trilogy. Volume One of the Rain Wilds Chronicles, Dragon Keeper is yet another magnificent adventure from the author of The Soldier Son and Farseer Trilogies, confirming the Contra Costa Times of California’s assessment of Hobb as “one of the most important writers in 21st century fantasy.”
