With the Dragon Wars over, Creel finds herself bored with life as a seamstress. Then word comes that a bordering country has been breeding dragons in preparation for an invasion. Never one to sit around, Creel throws herself headlong into an adventure that will reunite her with her dragon friend Shardas, pit her against a vicious new enemy and perhaps rekindle a
Anyway, forget it! Let me start the review.
This book was pretty amazing. But I found the previous one more amazing. Remember I said that beginning of the previous book is quite uneventful. In contrast, this book has ...more
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
Our heroine, Creel, dressmaker and friend to dragons, has learned that both humans and dragons have the capacity for good or evil. In this book, there's one evil dragon, but there are also many dragons who have been enslaved and forced, via alchemical collars, to do the bidding of the evil dragon, who has ...more
This book is wonderful. I remember reading it when I was younger and loving it, and then of course, reading it when I am older and still loving it all the same. It's just wholesomely balanced and fun to read.
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 ...more
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 ...more
There are three truths I have come to learn in the year since the Dragon War. The first is that both humans and dragons have the capacity to be good or evil. The second is that even if you're doing something you love, you can still become bored with your work. And the third is that my business partner, Marta, will never be finished with her wedding gown.
Either one of them.
I read Dragon Flight years back, and my memory reminded me that I liked it but not as much as the original. So after ...more
Unfortunately the climax falls flat with minimum action and a too-quick resolution. At least there wasn’t an overly irritating character like in the last one.
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
Content: This is a clean read. There is nothing objectionable in ...more
This book was annoyingly predictable.
I very seldom disagree with the masses on Goodreads (exception being in the Divergent series. WHY people, WHYYYY!?), so I am going to give these a re-read in a few months. Maybe I was just in a rotten mood when I reached for these?
Don't know- I will give them a re-read... in the meantime, I think Grumpy Cat would give a nicer review than I would. So I am going to ...more
