@_TheVoyager_ will be doing an exclusive interview with Robin Hobb next week. You can send them your questions: if you have a twitter account, just tweet or DM @_TheVoyager_ and if you don’t, you can email them to email@example.com . Joining twitter is fun, free and easy (and while you’re at it, consider following @theplentynet as well!)
As a side note—if updates are a bit slow in the next few days it’s simply because I’m lost in the Rain Wilds—my copy of the Dragon Keeper finally arrived today! :)
Pat from Fantasy HotList has posted a new excerpt from The Dragon Keeper—this is not the same one that Voyager posted earlier. You can read the excerpt here. Great treat for those of us who are still impatiently waiting for our books!
The UK edition of Robin Hobb’s brand new book The Dragon Keeper is out today. Online sellers have reportedly already sent out notes that the books are being shipped and copies should also be available in UK stores today. The book is already listed in several of amazon.co.uk’s bestsellers lists, including the top 20 of “new releases”. Order The Dragon Keeper from amazon.co.uk
The Dragon Keeper is the first part of the Rain Wild Chronicles and takes place after the events of Fool’s Fate. You can find more details about this book in the wiki and read an extract at Voyager’s blog.
Here’s a new version of the trailer for Robin Hobb’s upcoming book The Dragon Keeper.
I know the trailers say “available in July”, but both the HarperCollins/Voyager sites and amazon.co.uk are still listing 25th of June as the release date—the Australian release date seems to be July 1st though.
There is a fragrance in the forest. It does not come from a single flower or leaf. It is not the rich aroma of dark crumbly earth or the sweetness of fruit that has passed from merely ripe to mellow and rich. The scent I recalled was a combination of all these things, and of sunlight touching and awakening their essences and of a very slight wind that blended them perfectly. She smelled like that.
