“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.”
To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with everything he had to earn his precarious place on the Huracán team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.
Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she finds out, there’s only one man she wants—the one who walks away.
However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera....

Everyone experiences failure at some point in their life. In our society, success is celebrated, while failure is considered something that we need to stay away from.
But should failure be something we’re so embarrassed about, that’s making us feel worthless?

Between the pages of this book, you will discover:
And much more…

Who says you can't have it all?
I’m Samara Yancy, “Sam” to my friends. For seventeen years I’ve lived on The Rock. A city-state in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by mountains and evergreen trees. The land is lush, the air clean, and dampening fields keep the locals safe from Magic and the Mages who wield it.
Not long ago, I was at the top of my class at the Guardian Academy. After one teeny tiny misstep got me booted from out of there, I hoped a well-paying job on the Mainland would set me up for success.
But I didn’t realize that my new adventure would cause the authorities to label me a potential terrorist. Now, I’m up to my neck in eccentric Mages, including one who views me as his nemesis.
My only choice is to clear my name while trying to keep my ever growing circle of family and friends safe. I’ll just avoid danger while eluding the maniacal Mage who wants me dead.
Piece of cake.
