Dragon Haven by Robin Hobb


This is a Rain Wild book.  This volume of the story picks continues the trek of dragons, humans and a live ship up the Rain Wild River.

The characters of the story undergo many changes in this book.   Hobb imbues her stories with character growth.   She takes a personality and exposes it to many stressing factors and lets it grow organically, albeit with author oversight.

Thymara seems to undergo the greatest growth.  She embodies the struggle of women in a man's world.  Hobb slips in the philosophic urging for equality which sadly is still grossly needed. 

The dragons are given more identity and are fleshed out in multiple ways.

Hobb has the ability to address current social ills through her book.   Her addressing the inequities of societal roles is threaded throughout the book.   Addressing homosexuality, equality and gender bias while refraining from preaching is no easy task.

I highly recommend.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
