Giveaway: Dragon Keeper & Dragon Haven

This contest is closed. Lisa is the winner. I hope you'll come visit again next week for my giveaway with the fabulous Larissa Ione.


Everyone loves the chance to win a good book, right?  The Fool for Books Giveaway Hop features more than 200 blogs which are giving away books or gift cards in a two day contest that runs Friday April 1st through Saturday April 2nd.




Red Hot Books Giveaway: I am giving out 2 books to one lucky reader. They are Dragon Keeper & Dragon Haven by Robin Hobb. Check them out below:



                      Dragon Keeper: 
For years, the Trader cities valiantly battled their enemies, the Chalcedeans. But they could not have staved off invasion without the powerful dragon Tintaglia. In return, the Traders promised to help her serpents migrate up the Rain Wild River after a long exile at sea—to find a safe haven and, Tintaglia hopes, to restore her species. But too much time has passed, and the newly hatched dragons are damaged and weak, and many die. The few who survive cannot use their wings; earthbound, they are powerless to hunt and vulnerable to human predators willing to kill them for the fabled healing powers of dragon flesh.
But Tintaglia has vanished and the Traders are weary of the labor and expense of tending useless dragons. The Trader leadership fears that if it stops providing for the young dragons, the hungry and neglected creatures will rampage—or die along the river’s acidic muddy banks. To avert catastrophe, the dragons decree a move even farther up the treacherous river to Kelsingra, their ancient, mythical homeland whose mysterious location is locked deep within the dragons’ uncertain ancestral memories.
To ensure their safe passage, the Traders recruit a disparate group of young people to care for the damaged creatures and escort them to their new home. Among them is Thymara, an unschooled forest girl of sixteen, and Alise, a wealthy Trader’s wife trapped in a loveless marriage, who attaches herself to the expedition as a dragon expert. The two women share a deep kinship with the dragons: Thymara can instinctively communicate with them, and Alise, captivated by their beauty and majesty, has devoted her life to studying them.
Embarking on an arduous journey that holds no promise of return, the band of humans and dragons must make their way along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River—an extraordinary odyssey that will teach them lessons about themselves and one another, as they experience hardships, betrayals, and joys beyond their wildest dreams.

                     

Dragon Haven:
There is a shadow of a legend of a city, a fireside tale of a place where dragons and Elderlings once lived side by side in harmony and comfort. Kelsingra. To the final remnant of the dragon population and the human outcasts of the Rain Wild settlement, it seems a dream too good to be true. Does a haven exist for them? As they continue their trek up the uncharted Rain Wild River, fate and hardship will gnaw at their numbers and their determination. And the legends of the ancient beings called Elderlings will intrude into their adventure in a destiny beyond human control.






To win the books, all you have to do is tell me your favorite book genre in a comment below. The contest is open to Red Hot Books followers in the US & Canada. So make sure you're following before you enter!  The contest will close Saturday, April 2 at 10:00pm CST.

I read fantasy far more than any other genre, though I'm also a fan of science fiction as well as some more mainstream fiction.

Robin Hobb is one of my all time favorites and I constantly recommend the Farseer trilogy to anyone who will listen.
