This book is really part II of Hobb's earlier novel The Dragon Keeper. In a more just world, they should have been both issued in one volume.

It's a quick, fun read for fans of sci/fi fantasy, although it's rather like cotton candy on the boardwalk: tasty and sweet for a few minutes, but not really filling.

The novel follows the adventures of a bunch of misfits who are hired as keepers for a troop of handicapped, misshapen dragons. All are trying to find a mythical city where dragons once dwelt in harmony with humans. Lots of adventures along the way, as both groups mature and learn their own strengths.

Hobb's world is rather like Victorian England, with lots of repressions and hidden rules, and the characters learn what rules to accept and which ones to reject.
