These are 4 great short stories all leading up to a marriage proposal between Ridge and Sardelle.
It's a really nice extra if you love the series!

These short stories take place between Soulblade and The Shattered Past, so technically they could/should be called Dragon Blood #7.25 ... or something similar, I think. Anyway, all of the stories happen around a Duck Blind behind Zirkander's house and I guess that's why there's a mention of fowls.

Due to the shortness of each story, I'll keep my commentary very brief.

Fowl Advice
Basically a conversation between General Ort and Ridge. General Ort gave Ridge some advice and it was actually pretty f

Ridge has decided to propose to Sardelle, so he asks advice - from 2 people. He gets it from his mom, unasked. One person panics, thinking their SO is about to propose, and the other (plus mom) suggests a nice restaurant and well, a formal affaire. IOW, NOT what he'd been thinking about. He decides to ignore most of the advice, only to discover that his asking around had taken too long and Sardelle had made her own arrangements - involving a dragon. Hahah!

As an aside though, it would appear
This was cute. I wish I didn't like/follow so many authors because I miss these sort of things. Thank goodness Buroker put this together.

9/10: Fantastic, left me wanting more.

In desperate need of more Dragon Blood, I thankfully found this little gem on Lindsay's website.


But please give us more. :)

I was wondering when/how the proposal would go.

This is just what it says. Bonus scenes for the series but here is a review of the whole series so far.
OK, here goes...
Why did you rate the book as you did?
Really you're going to ask that? Because I quite liked it! Enough to buy whatever Ms Buroker writes anyway. I brought the first three book "Dragon Blood set because the topic was interesting and the price was right (to quote " I'm cheap so sue me!"😊)

What did you like/dislike?
Short version: A lot
Short but FUN, and perfectly illustrates the characters

I really enjoyed reading these humorous "bonus" scenes (building toward a proposal of marriage between Ridge and Sardelle) when they were posted on her site, and I was happy to see her package them for e-readers. NOT the place to START reading Dragon Blood, but irresistible for fans like me.

N.b, I shelved it both in "shortest" (which each individual scene would be) and "shorter" (novelette-length, which the full sequence is).

Lovely little stories

What a group of wonderful short stories! They all include the pond & the duck blind, hence the name, but so many of the characters are included in one way or another. You'll find out how Ridge got that hideous, bullet-hole riddled couch, more about the relationship between Ridge's parents and how Sardelle & Ridge got engaged.
Please,please take the time to read these! You're going to love them too!

Another fine read but honestly, the flow was interrupted of it was interrupted by the Bonus Scene ## each chapter... it was off putting as the short novella was just 4 chapters so this is a bonus scene of ?? I read the novels and understand the context after stopping and figuring it out ergo the disruption. Outside of it been a tad short, it was tell written and highly engaging by chapter... worth a read especially if you are reading the main series of novels which are a 5 star treat!

Very nicely done Ms. Buroker.

I enjoyed the proposal, and the thoughts, feelings, you put into wrapping the package. I surely hope that there will be more stories in this series. Duck, Pimples, The King, Ahn, the dragons all deserve equal time for adventures, battles, love. Get cracking lady, lots of stories to tell. Your readers eagerly await your storytelling prowess!

Entertaining bonus scenes - Ridge is thinking about proposing to Sardelle and so asks various friends how and where he should pop the question. Of course, the proposal doesn't happen in the ways that they suggest. Nice characters, nice story.

I choose this book because i wanted to read more about Ridge and Sardle. I'm very happy that the author choose to have them propose to each other. I would recommend this series to everyone.

The Fowl Proposal Bonus Scenes

This is a wonderful addition to the series Dragon Blood. It is interesting to look into the minds of the various characters and watch as this carries the series onward.

This was a fun view of Ridge getting advice and eventually the proposal that comes from said advice. All of the discussions happen at his duck blind, which instead of hunting ducks, everyone feeds them.

Don't duck this fine tail

It's very short but a fun interlude on what is mostly a high action series. Nobody dies not a single airship brought down.

Great read

Loved this little diversion, wow what a proposal. Glad they finally got round to it, now onto the next book, do not want this story to end.

Two of the scenes were more ideas, but the last of the three tales was wonderful.
I liked them, as usual, a lot.

Wonderful little stories

Quick fill in stories. Each took me a short time to read. Perfect right before bed. I recommend you read them before moving on to Book 8

I needed to read this before I started the Heritage of Power series. I found it mentioned in the notes of the last book.

A nice easy read that fits in with the other books and fills in some of the blanks. Should be read prior to the actual wedding.

Just lovely 🥰

It’s so hard to find great adventure without all the ‘gritty’ stuff which is supposed to make it more real. This is so lovely and warms the heart. I loved it.

Short and sweet

These small scenes showed what goes through every man's head when they are thinking of proposals and having family comment on their relationship

Delightful insights

A truly unusual view of several quirky characters, full of colour, always entertaining and with all the authors insight and her delightful sense of humour.
Joan Wheeler Showell

It was kind of sappy but necessary. You have to have the proposal experience between these two or it would feel like something big had been left out of the story...
