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...more

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...more

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

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...more

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...more

REVIEW

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!

Who doesn’t lov...more

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. Prince Luka...more

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.
Daria
Sadly, this book had lacked the appeal and fervor the previous one engaged me in. The first one was unique, but this book not as much... An enjoyable, light-hearted tale nonetheless; maybe her pace is just a little too fast for my liking.
Susan
I really enjoyed Dragon Slippers, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this was the sequel. Then I enjoyed it even MORE than the first, probably because it was more satisfying for me.

Not that Shardas could literally fit into my purse...you get it, though, right? I carried Shardas and Creel's second adventure along all weekend and it helped pass the time of waiting during meetings, appointments, etc. Even it I did not have the book handy, I think I still would have found spare time to finish it rather quickly, because I was as hooked on it as I was with the first book. I am so glad author Jessica Day George decided to write a sequel! The third installment, Dragon Spear is on...more

Too much war, too many sad dragons, not enough creativity, and SEVERAL grammatical mistakes. Are there no proofreaders at Bloomsbury?
K.C. Rivers
I just so enjoy these sweet stories. As I mentioned in my first review, I'm probably a little biased because the author has a writing style almost identical to my own. Still, the next chapter in Creel's adventures was just as exciting as the first.

This story once again made me feel like it could be either young adult or middle grade. An advanced middle grade reader could probably get through it with no troubles, and there are probably many teens who would enjoy it as well. As much as I look for...more

When the king learns that another kingdom has mounted an army on dragon and plans to attack, he asks Creel to help save the kingdom with the help of local dragons. Upset at the king's attitude towards dragons, Creel sets out to prove that the enemy dragons are not fighting of their own free will. Together with her friend Marta, Martha's betrothed Tobin, Prince Luka and her favorite dragons, Creel sets off to spy on their enemies in Citatie. Creel and Marta uncover a dangerous and deadly secret t...more

Even though Dragon Slippers didn't end on much of a cliffhanger, I loved it so much that I had to read the next book in the series. Dragon Flight may not be as good as the first book (hard to beat the awesome twist on dragon folklore), but it comes very close. I had a hard time deciding which one I enjoyed more.

There is a lot more action throughout the story with all the battles that take place. As a result, it is a little more violent than the previous book with all the dragons fighting each ot...more

This second installment of the Dragon Slippers series was just as fun, exciting, and interesting as the first. I've mentioned before how much I LOVE George's writing style and she doesn't stray from it in this one. The characters are realistic and likeable (or hate-able) and most importantly, I finished with a smile on my face and an uplifted heart.

The only problems I had with this one, was that Creel (can't stand her name) and Luka spend tons of time together, but we don't really get to see any...more

Creel and company are back for a whole new adventure. Granted, said adventure is moderately similar to the first book in ways, but it was pleasant to read regardless.

In any case, the second book, Dragon Flight is on par with the first book. I don't feel as if any great new strides are made by the book, but that's not what the book is about. It's about a girl, a bunch of dragons, and an adventure that's basically always right at your doorstep.

I think the best part of the books is the relationsh...more

Creel is growing bored of life as a seamstress, despite the popularity of her dress shop, and wishes to fly with the dragons again! Her wish is granted in an unexpected way when she learns that Citatie has taken control of the dragons and is breeding them in preparation for battle. She travels to Citatie along with her friends to warn Luka and save the dragons to restore peace once more!

Jessica Day George never fails to please me! The best way I can describe her writing is that it's like watchi...more

The Gist

Creel has finally become famous for more than being the heroine of the Dragon War. She finally has the dress shop she’s always dreamed of. With Marta as her partner and Alle working for them still, it seems like everything is as it should be. Shardas and Velika are alive and well. Marta will soon be married to Tobin. There is only one thing that Creel can find that just isn’t right: she rarely sees Luka anymore. They send letters back and forth, but having him right there in the King’s S...more

Creel and friends continue to be delightfully amusing and human (the dragons are too, actually). I alternately laugh aloud and tear up throughout the story. I find the first book more absorbing and enchanting (maybe I prefer the dress shop to adventure outside of it?), though in each scene of Dragon Flight Creel's thoughts and feelings are clear, just like in Slippers. And it's great the way Creel uses her sewing skills to help in the war.

The missing commentary is some general information--why i...more

At first glance, a Reader might think that "Dragon Flight" is going to have the same storyline as "Dragon Slippers," just slightly different. And while that may seem fine, because "Dragon Slippers" was a wonderful story, one always hopes for a new and even better story with a sequel. Well, Jessica Day George does not disappoint. There are plenty of surprising new twists in this one that really spice things up and create a brand new and exciting second adventure. Creel is, as always, at her witti...more

For instance, you could bring her chocolate to make the meeting go more smoothly. You could also talk about how adorable her children are, even if you have never seen them.
