Grade 3–5—This second book in the series has the same charm and crossover appeal as Dragonsdale
(Scholastic, 2007). Breena and Cara are best friends, but now Cara is riding dragons better than any other competitor. Breena doesn't mean to be jealous, but her dreams of being part of the guard flight are fast disappearing as she and her dragon struggle to regain their Trustbond after an accident. The rift in the girls' relationship is compounded by another girl's gossip and lies. When Breena takes her dragon off into the wilderness and doesn't return, it is only Cara who can solve the mystery of what has happened to her. Drake has taken horseback riding and all of its appeal and married it with fantasy and dragons. The setting is well developed and interesting, filled with wonders such as a merboy and his underwater flock of ramlike capricorns. The secondary characters also help bring the story to life. The writing is light and easy, and the black-and-white drawings add to the action.—Tasha Saecker, Menasha Public Library, WI
