Funny, heart-felt, and action packed, new readers and returning fans alike will dive headlong into this exhilarating follow up to Dragon Slippers.
Dragon Flight (Dragon Slippers 2)by Jessica Day George
Jessica Day George has such a fun imagination and it really shined through in Dragon Flight. As book two of the Dragon Slippers Trilogy she included plenty of details to fill a new reader in just in case they hadn't read the first book, but without making too many references to bother those who have. The main character, Creel, is a little firecracker who often has to be reminded to back down even to the king. This isn't due to pride, rather she's trying to protect those she loves; she is loyal to the end. George created such great characters from the dragons to the royalty peasants. Those who enjoy a little romance in the background of a story will appreciate the sweet, budding romances included in this tale. The plot is interesting to a young adult audience but also because of the dragon theme, my eight-year-old son loved having it read to him. Shannon Hale fans will also enjoy George's writing as they have a similar style. Readers who enjoy fantasy, especially dragon stories will love the Dragon Slippers Trilogy.
