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!

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

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

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!

This is the fifth book I've read by George, and the first that has disappointed me. There wasn't enough story here, we find out the mystery of the dragons about 60% of the way through, and the rest is just talking basically.

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

But when she gets there things are so tense that they must go into hiding. While there they discover some unsettling things, and they team up with others to protect their rights.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A brilliant and entertaining read. The author mentions at the end that she never planned on this sequel. I’m sure I’m not the only one glad that she eventually did write one. It’s just as charming as the first. I love Creel, she makes a wonderful heroine, and I love her relationship with the dragons.

The cover artwork is simply gorgeous, but I was also a little confused about the characters ages. I read somewhere that the characters are in their late teens, but they look about 12-14 years old on

I usually avoid the fantasy genre, but these characters are endearing and we wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was a well-written YA adventure/fantasy story. We are checking out the 3rd book in the series today.

“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?” 9 likes
