Kathrine | 1246 comments I'm super excited to start! Might have to finish some books first though, I think I'm currently reading like five different ones xD

Same!! I highly doubt I'll finish the Autumn Republic before this, unless it realllly sucks me in. 😅

Bea | 2052 comments I'm going to start this today! :)


Anni | 5020 comments Ah shit... How is it the 15th already? I guess I'll be late again 🙈


Bill | 2130 comments Lol right? This month is speeding by. Since it seems like everyone is going to start a little late I’m going to do my other BR first and then jump into this one.

Right?! Where is time going??

I'm gonna be a little late too.


Kathrine | 1246 comments Omg I love that we are basically all equally surprised by this xD I'll see if I can't start tonight or tomorrow because I'm definitely not gonna be able to finish all my other reads in the near future (aka the next week) hahaha

Bea | 2052 comments I'm almost done now and I can say this is easily my favorite installment in the series so far! So you guys have something to look forward to! :)
It felt more reminiscent of the Liveship Traders trilogy and I didn't feel like the flaws of the first 2 books were as prominent.

Uh, that sounds great :) I'm really looking forward to start this one! I have a few hours of my The Providence of Fire audiobook left, that I would like to finish first, I hope that I can make a start tomorrow :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7585 comments Yay can't wait for you to join us, Anni! 😊

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7585 comments Half way through chapter 10... (view spoiler)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7585 comments Chapter 10 (view spoiler)


Kathrine | 1246 comments Okay I've finally started! Sorry for the delay xD

I had a night of insomnia last night and managed to read all the way through chapter 10. Can I just start out by saying that I think this book is a major improvement on the two previous books? Don't get me wrong, I really liked both The Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven, but it's like they've both been missing something.... City of Dragons, however, feels like a return to the standard amazing quality of Hobb's books; everything, from the writing to the complexity of the plot to the characters seems to have become better and more well-developed or I guess just well-grounded. How do the rest of you feel about it so far?


Kathrine | 1246 comments Bea wrote: "Chapter 7
[spoilers removed]"


I agree so much! This book has actually managed to creep me out a lot so far xD There's just something so... haunting about (view spoiler)


Kathrine | 1246 comments Siobhan wrote: "Chapter 7"

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7585 comments Can I just add, the title of the next book makes me very nervous... 😳

Katie Koloske | 1860 comments Oh no! I haven't looked at the title yet ^^; Still trucking on this one. Just finish Chapter 6 where we got to see (view spoiler) again. I can't believe how much she has changed. (view spoiler)

It's just named that way because it sounds good! It doesn't mean anything! *Nods in conviction*

Katie Koloske | 1860 comments I'm at page 290 now and oh my gosh so much is happening here. First of all let me say I was sooo angry when that guy (view spoiler)


Katie Koloske | 1860 comments So I take it that "getting eaten by a dragon" has now become a thing for all hateable characters in the Realm of the Elderlings? lol

I had some time off today so I finally got down to finishing this little novel~

I have to say that I loved reading everyone's spoilers. I know Bea especially had some wonderful tidbits chapter to chapter that I totally agreed with. :D
