Train on Thursday: Dragon Haven, Robin Hobb

I travel with public transport on regular base. One of my favorite past times when in bus or train besides reading is checking out what other people read. I usually look these books up (especially when someone is so hooked they don't notice me checking them out) to see if they would be something for me.
In this weekly I will introduce you to the books I spotted while traveling. Feel free to leave a comment with your public transport picks or spots. If you want to write your own post feel free to link your post in the comments.

Dragon Haven Robin Hobb cover
Fifteen dragons have set off on a dangerous trek up the Rain Wild River, in hopes of rediscovering their lost haven, the ancient city of Kelsingra. Accompanying them are a disparate group of rejects from Rain Wild society, including strong and defiant young Thymara; wealthy dragon scholar and Trader's wife Alise; and her companion, the urbane Sedric. These human keepers yearn also to create a new home where they can decide their own fate. But is Kelsingra real or merely a fragment of a glorified past buried deep in the dragons' shared memories?

As they forge ever-deeper into uncharted wilderness, starvation, flashfloods, and predators imperil them all. But as dragons and humans alike soon learn, the most savage threats come from within their own company . . .

Confession time I guess... I have not read any book by Robin Hobb. I know she is a really popular author and I know what books belong to her but never had the courage to read one. The reason... they are fantasy books and I am not a person who easily picks up fantasy books. I should give her books a try though specially because the guy was not paying any attention to what was happening around him. Which of her books would you advice to me to read?

I too have heard great things about Robin Hobb (who I think also writes as Megan Lindholm) and have not read her works yet - tho some of her books have made it onto my book shelf. This one sounds like fun.
