Preview the French Dragon Keeper

5 Sep, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, France

Fantasy.fr has posted the covers of the French translation of the Dragon Keeper as well as a preview sample of the text, the first chapter of the first volume (sans the prologue). The French translation of TDK is going to be split in two: the first volume, Dragons et serpents will be released September 22, and the second part, Les Eaux acides November 17th. Observant fans may notice that the order of the covers has been switched from the original US editions as well as mirrored horizontally. It will be interesting to see what the French covers for the Dragon Haven volumes will look like!

Thank you Manu for sending us the link!

I don´t like changes. Especially not at the last minute. Changes say you weren´t really ready in the first place, and now you´re even less ready.
