Review of 'Dragon Haven' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

There's very little plot, and lots of boring character drama. I'm guessing its important as setup for future, where all of the dragon keepers are full elderlings, doing important Elderling stuff and changing the world., but its hard to take these characters seriously.

Hoping this speeds up in the next few books, and I can get back to the Fitz series.
