Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Robin Hobb is one of my favourite fantasy authors and this is the first book in a new series that follows on from the Liveship Trader series (you should read that series first – it’s very good).
“She already disliked both of them. The man because he had no respect for Skymaw and was too stupid to understand her, and the woman, because she had seen the dragon and now she coveted her.”

Robin Hobb writes wonderfully and I have been looking forward to this series. This book suffers a little from having to set up a complex story line for the rest of the series and I wonder if there is too much unnecessary information being used to pad out the story for commercial reasons. I rated it 3/5 but I expect the books that follow to be much better.
