"An unexpected sequel" author said in the Acknowledgements. Really! I just want to deduct a star from the previous book because she didn't intend to write this book. Previous book's ending wasn't satisfactory for me. I rated that book because I had in mind that there is a sequel..!!
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 a

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

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

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!

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!

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

More dragons, more fun! Shardas is an excellent dragon character – the reason I read this book too.

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.

How I love this series...I don't even know if I can express how awesome they are. Obviously the second book doesn't have that "first book charm" that first books do...but it is an awesome sequel. There is always more to learn about the dragons, and the plot was really awesome as well. And, of course, I love Creel and Luka. And Marta and Tobin...and all the dragons...and everyone. I just love this series! It's awesome enough that I still notice new things after multiple times reading, and yet it' ...more

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

While he is over there he sends letters to Creel some of them talk about how tense it is where he is. To help him Creel travels across the ocean to help him. 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.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email informing me that my copy of Dragon Flight had come in at the library. Luckily, my husband had to go into work today so I was able to curl up and continue the story of Creel and her dragon friends. I was a bit nervous to start, wondering if I would like it as much as the first, and was pleased when I started reading and things picked up right where we left off. The story was original and full of adventure. It was a great sequel and again draws ...more

Dragon Flight is the second book in Jessica Day George's Dragon series. I loved the first book Dragon Slippers and was excited to read the sequel. I think I liked Dragon Slippers just a little better than the sequel. The first half of Dragon Flight dragged a little bit for me but it picked up and had a fabulous ending making it a great read in the end. Start with Dragon Slippers if you enjoy it I'm sure you'll love Dragon Flight.

Content: This is a clean read. There is nothing objectionable in it

I've spent the last week rereading Jessica Day George's oh-so-lovely dragon series starring Creel, Prince Luka, and their dragon friends.

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 territo

This was a great little book! I couldn't get the first one in the series from the library but wanted to check out this author. Thanks for recommending her Amy! I really enjoyed the read. Sort of filled up my craving for dragon lore until the new Christopher Paolini book comes out. And honestly, I thought it was a much better read than certain popular vampire books that seem to be ravaging the country right now. I'd like to have lunch with Ms. George.

I gave this book 4 stars rather than 5 only because it breaks a rule of writing that has been pounded into my brain, and by breaking that rule it sort of detracts from the end--for me. But the characters from Dragon Slippers are back and as fun and lively as ever. I kept reading because I love Creel and her friends.
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.

The this first of two sequels, Creel and Luka are sent to investigate rumors of a dragon army preparing to invade their homeland. Both books provide the same delightful storytelling and character development as the first. I highly recommend this series for anyone who loves fantasy.

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?” 10 likes
