Much like Dragon Keeper, Dragon Haven is driven by its characters. The direction of the story is rather simple: move dragons from their cocooning grounds, up the Rain Wilds River, and to the Ancient Elderling City of Kelsigra. Without much in terms of twists and turns in the story, we rely on character growth and interaction to keep things interesting. Hobb does a terrific job of making the reader invest emotionally in the characters.
Unfortunately, when this book ended, I was a bit disappointed. First, because it felt as though the entire story was a stepping stone for future novels. I didn’t feel as though I was given proper closure with the people that I became so attached to. Secondly, the last scene literally made me stop reading for a moment and shake my head in disappointment.
Regardless of me not being sold on the way the book closed out, I thought the journey was interesting and enjoyable to read. Storyline is left wide open for Robin Hobb to weave a new tale and I am looking forward to the next novel set in this world.
