'''The Dragon Keeper ''' is an upcoming book by Robin Hobb, set to happen in the [[ Rain Wilds]] after the events of [[ Fool's Fate]]. This will be a single book, but since the story got longer than anticipated, it will be published in two volumes. It is not a direct continuation of the the [[ Liveship Traders trilogy]]. We will see some glimpses of familiar characters, but the main story line will follow new characters and events. The story is told in third person and is told by four view point characters.
