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, the Bingtown dandy Sedric.

Would you listen to Dragon Haven again? Why?

I am currently listening to it again. As ever, Robin Hobb's character and plot development is a thing of beauty. This book is beautifully paced.

What about Jacqui Crago’s performance did you like?

I just love her voice. I find it incredibly soothing, and though I don't mind Saskia at all, I prefer Jacqui and find myself wishing she had more audiobooks to her name!

Prior to making her final pledge as a druid, the young seer Sibeal visits the island of Inis Eala, where the Sight leads her to Felix, a survivor of a Norse shipwreck who has no memory of his past. As the island's healers struggle to keep Felix alive, he and Sibeal form a natural bond. But Sibeal's vocation is her true calling, and she must choose between the two things that tug at her soul - her spirituality and a chance at love...

Terry Donnelly took a lot of getting used to- I tried three times to listen to this and found that on the first two her voices just grated on me badly. Somewhere throughout though it seemed like either I just got used to her or she got better at it. The story was lovely, and particularly I loved the sea dragons. I found Felix to be a refreshing change of pace from the usual fighters too, he was quite endearing once you he got out of the infirmary.
