The start of The Rain Wild Chronicles – more magical storytelling, characters who get under your skin within a sentence, and …. dragons! But not the majestic Tintaglia and Icefyre we met with FitzChivalry Farseer, these weak and malformed creatures hatched late from their wizardwood cases in the Trader town of Cassarick, from exhausted, elderly, undernourished sea serpents.
Can’t wait to get the next instalment out of the library… if they have it – urk!!!
