Honestly such a joy to read. I loved the stories, I loved the ways the characters were described (saying outright, brown skin!). I loved the way lore was incorporated. I realized that after I finished the book I was thinking a lot about the lore regarding the dragons and that's something I'll have to re-read for and hope will be expanded on in the later books. This book kept me company during a hard time.

Magical influences with plenty of Arthurian legends of yore galore - a breezy fantasy read with a lot of endearing qualities

There is a lot to enjoy in this book, which mixes many magical influences with Arthurian legends of yore and has a zesty spirit running throughout it. The leads Oppie and Aurie are precocious and endearing, as they go up against the forces of evil, making many new friends of the forest along the way. I liked how Alison blended real word locations, places and historical

I was not into this type of book till I read the 2nd one to this. I fell in love with it so I had to read this one. It did not disappoint I love this. Dragons are my favorite so Aurie is kinda my favorite

A beautiful beginning to an empowering fantasy trilogy. The Sisterhood, is a middle grade/ya story about Oppie and Aurie, two girls who've been sent on an epic journey. Along the way, they find magic, confidence, inner and outer strength, and acceptance. The story itself is a positive and empowering one that shouts "Girl Power!" throughout its pages. Not only is it a positive message to girls and young women in general, but it is also a specifically powerful message to young girls of color. ...more

This was one of the cutest books I've ever read. The story was so unique and well-written. A truly great story about friendship that I think a lot of people would enjoy reading.

At first I thought it was a little strange that Oppie's best friend was a dragon, that apparently uses cell phones. It was a little difficult for me to picture a dragon having a cell phone, how big was that phone? Yes that was the difficult part for me to picture not the actual dragon part. Anyway, though I thought it

What a mystical story! Splendid creatures and mythology are incorporated into an epic tale about friendship, love and good-versus evil. It was truly magical. It's jam packed with positive messages about acceptance and courage. YES! It was a bit slow to follow occasionally, as it is filled with unusual characters with unusual names. I find this to be inherent in a lot of fantasy books. ( Loved the Selkies! Selfies were part of my storytelling when my daughter was younger.) I won't spoil it. If ...more

This book encompasses everything that a young girl should learn about themselves growing up. It's not just a tale of myths, legends and creatures. It's a lesson of love, friendship and companionship.

Alison Clarke has taken her main character, Oppie, through a journey with her dragon friend, Aurie, fighting an evil dragon named, Royzendeus. Along the way their army has grown and so does their friendship. Their

When I was 12-15 years old, if a book grabbed me, I would read it over and over. "The Sisterhood" is that kind of novel. Its complexity will satisfy a young girl's desire to immerse herself in a fantasy world that's grounded in reality.

Alison Clarke clearly knows her history and mythology, yet the context and conversation of this strong girl and her BFF dragon is contemporary. And the subtext of a Sisterhood that transcends color, species, race-- this is an important message that never preaches.

I didn't really enjoy this book and it kind of disappointed me. I was expecting it to be better. It was a very confusing story line and I think it would of been better if they could of explained it more through more chapters. Overall is was very confusing but it was still okay. The story in about the middle got kind of boring but it was overall okay. So for me this book is worth two stars.

Was so excited to get this novel. The writing is wonderful! Creative novel. A beautiful creature emerges from the depths of the waters. She makes a friend then upon someone trying to kill her due to her father, she changes her friend so he can go under water. Sort of like a little mermaid twist.

I thought it was very inspirational and well-written. I enjoyed the feminist undertone, and the story line was great!

Sisterhood book one by Alison Clark

I first made aware of this series as book 2 was coming out. And though I was assured that it could be stand-alone I felt I needed to read the 1st one.

This is truly a book about finding one's self, love and friendship. All while wrapped in a truly spectacular magical world of fantasy.

Alison does an amazing job of describing her world and characters. There were a few spots I got lost, and out took a minute to see where we were going but then it would come back

This is a nice YA book with colorful characters and some awesome ties to history and the power of femininity. It's imaginative and different. The story is a bit outlandish, but for ages 10 and up I could see it entertaining some young girls. The writing could use a little polishing, but all in all this is a good read.

Wowza! This fantasy story was amazing from start to finish. Opportunae has powers that she has yet to discover. Once disaster strikes, she comes into her powers along with her best friend, and they have to take down the evil powers that be.

I really loved that the story had strong female characters. Also throw in the fact that Opportunae and Aurora had a strong friendship. The story gives a strong message that you should never give up on hope.

The only issue that I had with the
