This is the sequel to the wonderful Novice Dragonneer and continues to follow the young Illeth journey to become a Dragoneer. Illeth has come a long way from the first novel where she escaped the captain's lodge (an orphanage basically) to head to the Serpentine to become a Dragoneer. She arrives too late and spends almost two weeks on the doorstep refusing to leave. Now she on her way to becoming an apprentice.

Once she becomes one she needs to provide herself with a sash. She tries so hard to

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Actual rating: 3.5/5 stars


Daughter of the Serpentine is the follow-up to The Novice Dragoneer , one of my favorite books of this year. There is something uniquely comforting about this series—it wraps you in its magical atmosphere like a warm blanket. Even though I didn’t quite love Daughter of the Serpentine as much as its predecessor, I real

I loved this book just like the first book, a lot happened, we learned more, and it was a really great read! Can't wait to read more!

Content warnings: (view spoiler)

These books have absolutely gorgeous covers, and I love this one even more than Novice Dragoneer. I very much enjoyed the first book, so I was unbelievably excited to read an advanced copy of this one. And, wow, it was not a disappointment – it’s even better than the fi

Daughter of the Serpentine by E.E. Knight is the second book in his fantasy Dragoneer Academy series. Daughter of the Serpentine picks up shortly after the last book left off, and continues to follow our heroine, Ileth’s, journey into this magical world of dragons. Ileth’s earned the respect of her peers in the last book, and is now an apprentice to a dragoneer, which has some pitfalls; she also continues to help with her dancing group.

Ileth finds herself meeting new friends, as well as keeping

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an earc to review! All opinions are my own.

I kept putting this book off until the last minute because I didn’t want to be disappointed if it ended up not being as great as the first book. Although I enjoyed the characters, I just wasn’t feeling the plot as much. It didn’t live up to the first book but I still liked it for the most part.

Ileth is back and is just as determined to become a dragoneer. In this book her role changes a lot since she is no lo

Adventurous. Fantastical.

Daughter of the Serpentine is book two in the Dragoneer Academy series. Ileth is now an apprentice. She still is proving herself to everyone there. She isn’t afraid to work hard. Her dream is to be a dragoneer with her own dragon. A lot of obstacles are thrown her way, along with political matters. Ileth must make choices and hope she is doing the right thing.

I was excited to read more about Ileth! She is a survivor and I wanted to know what adventures she would find her

Before we get started, in case you are interested, I also reviewed the first book in this series, Novice Dragoneer.

We start this new book where the last one left off. Ileth is now an Apprentice Dragoneer, which pretty much means having to do a LOT more work. But since her true love is dragons, she is more than willing to lose sleep and expend vast amounts of energy for their benefit. She really does have an admirable work ethic. I’m worn out just reading about it.

She is a great character, hard w

It was wonderful. I laughed often. I couldn't put it down. I'm already aching for the next one. I love these characters, I love this world, and many of my grievances from the first are resolved (namely, Ileth now has female friends and is less catty in general).

I would have given it five stars were it not for the fact that I can't quite decide if I'm being queerbaited or not. Santeel and Ileth continue to dance on the hairs breadth between best friends and romantic interests. I don't know if I'm

I found this tale adventurous and exciting. The story is unique, and I found myself swept away into a land of pirates, dragons, and peril. I definitely would recommend this book to young and old readers alike. A very engaging story that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end!

Ah, back with Ileth. She is one bad ass woman. I really enjoyed this story. It was choked full of dragons and pirates, and of course an adventure or two. We finally have some back story to our character and the world is built around us even more. A wonderful world that I can picture in my head. If you love dragon lore, then this would be the book for you.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
