Waiting On Wednesday - Blood of Dragons by Robin Hobb

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Blood of Dragons (Rain Wilds Chronicles, Book 4) by Robin Hobb

While there's no official blurb yet, Robin Hobb had this to say about the saga, and its final book:

YES!  There is a fourth books that concludes the Rain Wilds Chronicles.  It is called Blood of Dragons and is currently making its way through the editorial process, to emerge in 2013.  Yes, it will feature a Jackie Morris cover!


To recap:  I intended to write one stand alone book about the dragons in the Rain Wilds.  When I turned in Dragon Keeper, I was very late and the manuscript was very long. Rather than  hack the story down to size, we opted to release one book  as two volumes.  Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven make up one story.

Then, I resolved to try again to write a third book that would tie up any loose ends about the Dragons, the keepers and Kelsingra. That time, I did manage to turn it in on time! But again, it was far too long.  So, once more, we cut one book into two volumes.  City of Dragons and Blood of Dragons make up on story from the Rain Wilds, and conclude my Rain Wilds Chronicles.

I am so sorry for any confusion and to any readers who bought City of Dragons expecting it to conclude a ‘trilogy’, my heartfelt apologies! (April 9, 2013)


No apologies necessary! New books from Robin Hobb are always a cause for celebration.

  2. I only read the Farseer and the Fool's trilogies, and cried like a baby in the end. I haven't started on the other books of Robin Hobb's fantasy world.

    Here's my WOW.
