Sarah (lavender87) | 2 comments I've been trying to find out the name of a particular book since I've joined goodreads. I've tried google, and even looking at the online catalog at the library I checked it out from a long time ago to no avail...

I think I may have been around 14 or younger when I read the book, and being 29 now, it would have to have been published before 2001. I have a terrible memory and I can't remember a whole lot about the book, but I believe it was a book series of three (I think I read them all) and not very popular.

I remember picking out the book in the young adult fantasy section. I thought it was a fantasy book about dragons because on the cover it had a picture of mountains (which I think looked like a dragon?) on it and had the name dragon in the title. I could have sworn it was called something like Dragon Mountain, but I can't find anything similar to that title that fits the plot as I remember it...

The plot is very fuzzy to me. I remember this girl being in a palace(?) with a bunch of other girls and they were pampered. I believe she decided to run away and was in a desert(?) where she found this man and robots(?) that were like his servants, and I remember (in the last book, I believe) they find out the mans true identity after finding a space ship, and that he's actually from outer space or something...I think the robots take care of the girl. I think the man might not have known his own true identity..

Dragonriders of Pern series for Elias' suggestion - https://www.goodreads.com/series/4032...

I'm not suggesting it, as I've read the Dragonriders of Pern books and I know it's not it-- I was just saying that it's kind of similar.

What about one of the Norby books? They probably are not it, but it's been too many years since I read them. but there are definitely robots and dragons and space-ships in that series. Norby, the Mixed-Up Robot is I think the first book in the series.
