The Traders have forgotten their promises, weary of the labor and expense of tending earthbound dragons who were hatched weak and deformed by a river turned toxic. If neglected, the creatures will rampage—or die—so it is decreed that they must move farther upriver toward Kelsingra, the mythical homeland whose location is locked deep within the dragons' uncertain ancestral memories.
Thymara, an unschooled forest girl, and Alise, wife of an unloving and wealthy Trader, are among the disparate group entrusted with escorting the dragons to their new home. And on an extraordinary odyssey with no promise of return, many lessons will be learned—as dragons and tenders alike experience hardships, betrayals . . . and joys beyond their wildest imaginings.
Waste of Time
This story plods along and eventually goes nowhere. It is not even a cliffhanger of an ending. It seems an almost arbitrary termination of the book. Wasted my time on this.
Ok, so the writing is very good. The story is excellent, HOWEVER, the book leaves you hanging. I understand the desire to get you to purchase more, but after 670+ pages, a reader deserves an ending!
I love this book and I just even might by the whole collection:.
