Book #12 was Dragon Keeper, by Robin Hobb. My father-in-law and his wife gave this to me as a Christmas gift, and I just got around to reading it this week. I loved her Farseer trilogy, and the Tawny Man trilogy that followed in the same world, but did not enjoy the Soldier Son trilogy very much. Dragon Keeper returns to the same world as the Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies (and presumably the Liveship Trader trilogy, but I haven't read those). My favorite part of this book was the point of view chapters from the dragons. I sped through this book in about three days. We're headed on vacation tomorrow, and I requested the two other books in the trilogy from my library. That is the nice thing about finding a series after its is already written -- no waiting for the next book to come out!
