Author Kristin Pulioff has sprinkled her magic again into book three of the Princess Madeline trilogy!
Princess Madeline and the Dragon is an exciting and thoroughly satisfying final chapter in this fantasy/adventure series. As she did with books one and two, the author has created a fantasy world in a rich medieval setting that we can believe in--and want to visit, over and over.
Confronted by a terrible foe and a puzzle to unravel, the determined heroine and her brother race to save the kingdom

Prophesies, family tragedies, magic and - of course - dragons, combine to produce a tale that is an instant classic. Written with a great deal of charm, 'Princess Madeline and the Dragon' will not disappoint Ms Pulioff's young fans. I look forward to seeing where next her imagination will take this natural storyteller.

Madeline has been studying with Elias, the wizard, for the past several months. After Madeline turned 16, she discovered her natural magic came from her dreams, which are now blocked and Elias is giving her different herbal tea combinations to try to release the block. Meanwhile, the kingdom is alive with preparations for Spring Faire and with all the craziness that recently happened, expectations are high for this to be a grand event.

This is the third book in a trilogy based on the adventures of Princess Madeline. While I do heartily recommend that you read all three, a reader will find any of the three a satisfying fantasy adventure aimed at tweens and teens but no less enjoyable for adults.

Pulioff expertly guides the reader into this story by setting the stage in the Prologue in which we learn the kingdom of Soron is again under attack. Long ago, Lord Hawthorne followed out orders to attack the dragons in the surrounding f

All is well in the Kingdom of Soron; at least, that’s what everyone thinks. The village has been rebuilt since Prince Paulsen’s disastrous attack the previous autumn, and preparations are under way for the Spring Faire – a very important occasion. Princess Madeline is also preparing for her upcoming wedding to Daniel, and the prospect of establishing a new home in the North. The wizards, now welcomed back after their timely assistance during the previous troubles, have a new role to play. Madeli ...more

In the third installment of the series, Princess Madeline has matured and grown to accept her responsibilities. Disaster strikes, soon after the war, in the form of a dragon. The King charges Prince Braden to fight the dragon and Madeline to journey to Dragon’s Gate, far from her childhood home, to make a new one. More than in previous books, I felt the emotion because the author also matured in storytelling. Death seemed ready to take its toll.

"Princess Madeline and the Dragon" by Kirstin Pulioff is the third in her series about a headstrong princess in the Kingdom of Soron.

In this episode we are drawn right into a well written prologue: a fast paced action scene that introduces the dragon hunter Lord Hawthorne who is after the magic of dragon eggs.

When the Kingdom is attacked by a dragon, King Theodore gets injured, leaving his children to decide on the right path of action. The new King Braden and his sister Madeline try to do this

This was a really good book, and if the system allowed me, I would give it a 4 1/2 star rating instead of 4.

This was actually the first one I have read in the series, which is actually the last book, so rating this completely would be very hard for me since that would be like, as an example, starting at the "The Return of the King", in the JRR Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, instead of at "The Hobbit". This is MY fault, not the writer's. It was very well written and has definitely got m

**Received ebook as part of the Mother Daughter Review blog tour for an honest review

The cover is cute and very intriguing though Madeline is looking very rough and like she has been through some tough times.

I really love this series!! Kirstin does a fantastic job writing it so you see everything like you are there. I really wish I could get my son to read this series, but he keeps himself busy with what he calls boy stuff (no princesses…lol).

First of all, permit me to explain that this is the first book in the series I have read. I realize this is the end of the trilogy, but I had no trouble jumping right into the action. It is a fairly simple book to join "in process." This meets its target audience in that there is no sex, violence, nor profanity. It is a clean read, and if your tweens love fantasy, this may be just the book for them.

Although the book is well-written for its targeted audience, I do have one minor criticism. I felt

This was my favorite book in the Princess Madeline series I've read yet. The head-strong, self-assured, and good sensed Princess Madeline faces her biggest challenge yet, to save her kingdom from a dragon. Unlike the first two books, this one starts out with action and holds the tension to the very end. This story is a little darker than the others and offers a more mature Madeline. This young princess has come a long way.

The plot now is speckled with clues and tension. Bits and pieces of Madeli

"Saving the Best for Last"

Kirstin Pulioff has saved the best for last.

'Princess Madeline and the Dragon' is the final instalment in the 'Princess Madeline Trilogy'. I thought the first two books were finely wrought stories, but this novel surpasses its predecessors. Prophesies, family tragedies, magic and - of course - dragons, combine to produce a tale that is an instant classic.

Written with a great deal of charm, 'Princess Madeline and the Dragon' will not disappoint Ms Pulioff's young fans.

This is by far one of my favorite series EVER for kids. This is the 3rd book in the trilogy. This is a clean series that is free of profanity and sexual situations. This is a series that is also a smart book. Which means to me, that the author does not dumb down the story line or situations. She allows the reader to use their imaginations and allows them to see the good and bad in the world. There is something for everyone in this series!!! Pulioff is a natural storyteller. This series is a gift ...more

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Princess Madeline and the Dragon is a fairy tale that has kings, knights, a princess, and dragons. It starts out with an exciting prologue and stays interesting throughout. It also has a good lesson for children that the power of love triumphs over all.

This story is well written and full of adventure. Anyone who enjoys young adult fantasies would like this book especially middle grade children.

I was distracted by the editorial errors in this book, although it's a fine adventure. If they bring out a second edition I may review and rate it.
