Reading aloud to my son, May 2011.

Just finished reading aloud to my son. Don't remember the ending being so romantic! Yay, me! (I have a hard time with the mushy stuff!)

Definitely a worthy sequel to Dragon Slippers, especially concerning the fact that Dragon Slippers wasn't supposed to have a sequel. Just as in the first book, Dragon Flight is a creative and humorous story with a clever and inviting writing style. 'Flight' may even be better than 'Slippers'... I can't decide.

I wasn't particularly impressed at the beginning of the story. The whole almost-dying-but-not-actually think is kind of cliché, and felt very plot device-y. But in the end, I didn't at all

This book entertained and enchanted me just as much as the first one, Dragon Slippers, if not more. Everything that the author set up in the first book was carried through perfectly into the second. Dragon Slippers was one of those books that didn’t quite *need* a sequel, but definitely benefited from one. I felt that the story of Creel wasn’t quite tied up yet, and Dragon Flight completed her story nicely. After this, I can be happy without any more tales about Creel, though I wouldn’t argue if ...more

It’s books like this that made me a fantasy reader in the first place. Creel is a bold, headstrong character with a big heart. With the threat of war, dragon battles, and her in the mix it’s absolutely a fun read. And she is not the only bold character in the bunch.

As compared to the first Dragon Slippers, I think I like the first a little better though the difference isn’t by much. I still enjoyed the adventure immensely and we get to see more dragons, different people, and more action. Creel i

These books are so much fun to read. The characters are great, the dragons are amazing, and the main character Creel is a bad ass. She's a smart heroine, and not one of those MCs where the author says they're smart but than the character constantly does stupid stuff. Creel is the real deal: intelligent, no-nonsense, sarcastic but also incredibly kind-hearted and I love her!

Once again, Creel entertained me on every page. I love how consistent the characters are in this book series. Each character - dragon and humans alike - has a distinct personality and a believable role to play in the plot. Creel has never been a damsel in distress, which I've always liked, but even better, she is usually the first to speak up and persuade others to have courage. And Jessica Day George does this in a realistic way, not how some writers try to tell you a character is a hero by usi ...more

This was a fun and entertaining follow-up to the first book, Dragon Slippers. I enjoyed the story arc and the characters. Once more I was pulled into the world and its characters.
There's not too much for me to add because it was a solid read and a satisfying sequel.

Warning: Spoilers Below...


My only complaint is I didn't like how Creel kept stealing the spotlight at both weddings at the end. It was addressed only briefly and dismissed with little more than a hand-wave. I wish the author had chos

Having read reviews that mentioned enjoying the first book, Dragon Slippers, more than the rest, I picked this one up with slight apprehension. I never expected to enjoy Dragon Flight even more than the first installment!

The previous book had laid the groundwork, allowing this one to build upon our knowledge of the existing characters and spice it all up with an extended cast and considerably more action. Reading about Creel, Luka, Shardas and co. again was like meeting old friends, and it was w

Jessica Day George is quickly becoming one of my favorite YA fantasy authors. While I have to admit that I probably liked Dragon Slippers--her first effort--a bit better, Dragon Flight is still a very enjoyable read that is easy to get lost in.

What truly makes these books so enjoyable is the colorful cast of characters. I have found it so easy to become attached to Creel, Prince Luka, and others that help them along the way. And anyone who gets in their way is depicted so well in their oppositio

I have been trying to get ahold of this book forever; however Dragon Flight was worth the wait. Dragons and more DRAGONS!

The story starts out a little slow, but once it picks up there’s no stopping the action. Creel is persuasive and has a beautiful relationship with the Feraval dragons. There is a special bond between Creel and these dragons. I loved that they were not portrayed as monsters – but instead as creatures with human-like qualities (feelings and dreams). Amazing!

The start of Dragon Flight begins where Dragon Slippers leaves us...that is, Creel (Heroine of the Dragon War) is creating magnifient gowns for Isla (soon to be married to Prince Miles) with her partner Marta. These two girls are very busy since their dressmaking and embroidery skills are exceptional. But, when news of an imminent invasion by Citatie soldiers is coming, Creel and Marta are up to the task of joining forces with her dragon friends, Shardas and Feniul to meet the enemy.

Almost gave this a 5-star, but it wasn't quite there. GREAT story, full of action, and with the same attention to fabric that the first one had. These two make a wonderful 3rd-4th grade read, particularly for girls who like fantasy.

I love a sequel that's just as strong as its predecessor, and Dragon Flight was certainly that. It took me a little longer to really get into this one, but I think that's because I started it immediately after one of those books that sucks you in so completely that you have a story hangover after finishing it, and not because of any fault with the story. I still love Creel, she has such moxie, and I can't wait to find out what happens when the dragons establish their own kingdom in the next book ...more

Creel has her own dress shop and she's working hard to make a name for herself. Even though things are going well she misses some excitement in her life. She also doesn't get to see much of prince Luka as he is on a mission abroad. When she hears from him again it's news about an upcoming invasion to take over her home country. Dragons will be used for an easy victory. Creel has to prevent that from happening and she need help. Once more Creel and Shardas are working together and their bond is g ...more

Creel: a good hearted nice loyal girl who defiantly was an awesome character to read about. I love that she is willing to defend her friends the dragons and that she actually has a good relationship with her best friend.

I am now officially a fan of Jessica Day George. After reading Dragon Slippers. I could not wait to get my hands on Dragon Flight. I loved being back with Creel and Luka and so ecstatic to be back with Shardas. And the plot couldn't be better. It started with a looming second Dragon War. But once the war is over, the problems aren't. This book, this story, this beautifully interwoven and complex tale. I enjoyed it. It did not fall short as sequels have a terrible tendency to do.

If I loved the first in the series, I absolutely adored this one.

In this book the reader returns to Creel to find her the co-owner of a very successful shop. She and Marta have kept busy. Especially since Miles, the Crown Prince, is soon to be marriedand the girls have been commissioned to make the wedding dress. Between the wedding preparations and Creel taking care of Shardas and Velika as they recover from diving into the Boiling Sea, Creel should have plenty to keep her mind away from Prince

I've spent the last week rereading Jessica Day George's oh-so-lovely dragon series starring Creel, Prince Luka, and their dragon friends.

One war with the dragons is over and done with, but, a second is about to begin. And this time, it may not be an evil human controlling the dragons through alchemy, but, an evil dragon controlling a human king controlling dragons through alchemy. Not that Creel could guess that before she slips off to her second war as a spy. (She doesn't go into enemy territo

However, in the midst of their preparations (and Shardas and Velika's healing) they receive disturbing news; Citatie, a country to the south of Roulain, is preparing for war and they mean to sweep over Roulain and Feravel... with their army of dragons and riders. Creel and Shardas can't imagine that the dragons are doing this of their own free will, so Creel, Marta, To ...more

Dragon Flight.
First read 2009 ish. Reread Jan, 4, 2015.

This book is about the second dragon war. Not even two chapters into the book and the next war has started, I found that a bit irritating because right after finishing the last book I started this one, and it felt like there was really only three chapters between the first war and the second. That aside the book was good! Definitely better than the first one.
In the story a nation across the sea creates a army of dragons ruled by Shardas' e

Another great book by Jessica Day George. I was a little worried that Dragon Slippers would be hard for a sequel to live up to, but this managed pretty well.

Dragon Flight has slightly more serious tones than its predecessor, but there are still humorous moments and light and cheerful events. The main characters are as entertaining and strong as in the first book. I like that there was a dragon antagonist here. The dragon race is shown to be as varied, deep and complete in their personalities and

This was a good book that I enjoyed. This plot outline was even better than the previous book, "Dragon Slippers." It showed a lot of action and suspense that was quite enjoyable like how there was an invasion. However, I did have some problems that were very similar to the first book. What happened was is that these events were too sudden. At the beginning the main character Creel was living a happy life like visiting her dragon friends and spending time with the prince of the land she lives in. ...more

Great sequel. The story was intriguing and surprising. The one disappointment was the relationship between Luke and Creel. I didn't feel it was developed enough. Luckily, that was forgivable since Creel's relationship with the dragons is so fantastic. I love the unique personalities of all the dragons and how much Creel cares for each of them. Fun series!
Allison
This wasn't as good as the first book. It had more dragons, which I liked, but the rest of it was lacking. The political intrigue and personal high stakes were missing, and the characters were like snapshot memories of the more dynamic ones in the previous book. I suppose that's always the danger when you enjoy a book that's only first in a series.

“We should do that,” he whispered. “Wear flowers in our hair?” I was watching the ceremony and not really paying attention to Luka, despite the warmth of his arm. Tobin’s eldest brother, the head of the household since their father’s death some years ago, had come forward. Skarpin had surprised us by being as garrulous and emotional as Tobin and Ulfrid were silent and controlled. His red beard was a sharp contrast to his shaved head, and he had six earrings in each ear, a sign that he was a wealthy landowner. He took the loaf of bread from the priest and began the traditional praising of the bride’s skills. “No,” Luka said. “We should get married.” Now I gave him my full attention. “What?” 7 likes
