Dragon Spear (Dragon Slippers #3)
This book, for the record, is rather pushing the top edge of what I would think of as middle grade. Just FYI: there is a wedding, several fights to the death, and a gooey dragon birth scene. Not sure how much my son really "got" of the ending. He's six, but he really wanted to know what my books were about.
Dragon Spear is the exciting finale to the Dragon Slippers trilogy. Characters I have come to know are joined by a band of tiny rogue dragons on a mission. These mini dragons are stubborn, proud, and quirky – while the Feraval dragons collect luxuries, these new dragons collect PEOPLE. So weird!
Nothing is simple as Creel and Luka plan their wedding. Rather than dealing with some played-out-love –triangle, these two deal with dragons trapping them in a pit and a wedding dress that refuses t ...more

This one didn't have as much embroidery or sewing going on like it did in the last two but it did present itself in Creel's wedding dress and of course to help save the day-more or less, not exactly.
It didn't feel as dire to me even though it probably could've. Sure th ...more
I am a big massive Jessica Day George fan, and while this book tied the series up in a few ways which I will not give away, I felt it lacked a certain spark and freshness that the first two had.
Some characters felt tacked on as there was little build for them in previous books. As predictable as it may have been, I admit I would have liked to see Alle find love with Creel's brother. Again, this may have been predictable, but that kind of feel good addition I could have lived well with. ...more

Creel, Luka, Shadras, and the rest of the gang are back, and things are about to get interesting. Luka is constantly pushing Creel to agree to move their wedding date up, Creel is panicking about her dress, her family shows up at the palace and expect to be treated like royalty, and Luka and Creel are suppossed to be going to visit the dragons new home. Whe ...more

As far as Creel is concerned, all is finally right with the world. The dragon king, Shardas, and his queen, Velika, have made a home for themselves on the Far Islands, and for the first time in centuries it seems dragons and humans might be able to live together in peace. So what better ...more

Dragon Spear is a delightful third installment of the Dragon Slippers series. In book three, Creel and Luka go on a mission together to the new colony of dragons—the Far Isles. If you’ve read the other books in the series, you’ll know that Creel has a special relationship with the dragons. And although the creatures aren’t welcome everywhere and reasonably feared by most humans, Creel has managed to become their closest f ...more
In this one, Dragon Spear, I love Creel's dedication to her wonderful dress, though, s ...more
A speedy read just like it's two predecessors in the series, more adventures with Creel and dragons and references to gorgeous fashion. I'm convinced this is the fantasy series to hook girls with enough romance to counter-balance the idea of adventure and large scaly monsters. I love George's characterization of the dragons, making them just as understandable, empathetic, and fun as their human counterparts. I sometimes find Creel to be a little ...more
Creel has been looking forward to visiting Shardas and the other dragons on their island. Now that humans and dragons are no longer allowed to live together they seem to be happy and in peace. Creel, Luka and Hagen are spending some time with the dragons and Creel is feeling like she's finally back with her family. Her brother Hagen loves being among the dragons and he tries to learn as much from them as possible. Creel and Luka can be together without the suffocation of the court and Creel's au ...more
A fun conclusion to the Dragon Slippers trilogy, with a good different plot from the previous two books, lots of returning awesome characters (including the return of the cursed dress!), however, I was a bit disappointed with the new characte...more

"They spit."I said. "They probably bite as well."
"They are ill tempered things,"Amacarin agreed."But I saw someone riding one yesterday. It did not look like a smooth-gaited beast, though."
Now there was even more longing in Hagen's face."
Luka started laughing. "I shall buy you one when you finish your apprenticeship." He told my brother. "It can be your mastery gift. A hairy, spitting cow horse.”
"No," he agreed. "I've seen you grovel. It's not very convincing.”
