Rose and Henry are still having trouble with their new baby dragon. Two days before Christmas he wakes them up asking if he can play with the Christmas tree. It turns out he has set it on fire. They set out on a quest to try to find a new bed for him that he can’t crawl out of. But the only options they can think of are too much like cages, and they have promised themselves that their son will not live in a cage.
Finally, it occurs to Rose that they have been asking the wrong people. She wants to talk to her mother. When they visit Rose’s family on Christmas Eve, Rose’s mother has some good ideas.
A massive snow storm forces them to stay at her parents’ overnight even though they had planned to spend Christmas day at their own apartment. And Rose’s sisters, of all people, are instrumental in providing a fun Christmas for Virgil.
I especially liked the part where Virgil was fantasizing about playing with Violet, the other baby dragon that has hatched so far in New York.
How can one be a paleontologist, a wife and a mother to the first dragon born in millennia? Rose was beginning to wonder as Virgil played the Christmas Tree game until it barely survived, ate them out of house and home, scared the landlord that he slept in the oven because it had become the safest place for him to be. And then there was Henry, almost as demanding.
But was Virgil better off than Violet living in the Zoo? We'll just have to see about that....
I read a lot of books. I read a lot of paranormal/ urban fantasy. Without a doubt Virgil is my favorite baby dragon....even if he did burn the tree.
I received this book from the author as an advance copy. I am voluntarily offering my own honest opinion about the book.
Even though this is the third book in the Dragon Eggs series, it can be read as a standalone. Each character in this quick read is likable, the plot flows well from one scene to the next, and the writing is impeccable. I honestly cannot find anything ‘wrong’ or any ‘issues’ in this read.
Virgil, the dragon, is my favorite character in all of this. He’s innocent, sweet, and yet can be dangerous now that he is using his fire-breathing ability. But, being a baby, he has no idea what danger really is, he just knows when he needs the essentials – food, cleanup when he’s wet, nap times, and play time.
Though this is a fantasy read, the young married couple, Rose and Henry, face common issues in any real-life relationship. Such as, identifying who does what around the house, compromising, and agreeing on how to raise a baby. Now, the baby is a dragon here, but he’s still a newborn! In addition, this story is set in the 1920s, so there are also issues of what a ‘woman’s role’ should be versus a ‘man’s role’ in the household. I found all these challenges were placed well and logically throughout the book.
Overall, I loved every minute of this book, and can see myself revisiting it. Sorensen has created a lovely and interesting story, and I can’t wait for the next one to come! I would recommend this read to those who enjoy clean fantasy reads that leave you smiling.
This short story makes me want to read more about the adventures of trying to raise a baby dragon. I highly recommend this story and am off to find the rest of the series.
Struggling with parenthood and the unexpected addition of being afraid to lose custody, it is a nice steady go of an unusual and unprepared for parenthood.
A good story, but it needs to be read in context with the previous stories to appreciate the development of story and characters.
