And then, almost immediately after Rose and Henry’s wedding, Virgil, their baby dragon hatches, and immediately wants to be fed. Since there have been no live dragons for thousands of years, neither Rose and Henry nor the paleontologists studying the newly hatched dragon are quite sure what kind of food it eats. And Virgil is upset that his new parents don’t automatically know how to feed him, just as his original parents would have. Once they have settled on something that will at least make do, Virgil wakes up hungry all over again every fifteen minutes or so. It is vastly interesting at first, but after a couple of days everybody is tired and on edge, and Rose and Henry’s new marriage is already becoming strained as they are still having trouble figuring out how they will take care of their baby dragon without jeopardizing their schooling.
Just like taking care of baby humans (although baby humans don’t start breathing fire before they are a week old).
As I said, not quite as cute as the first book – everybody is a little too panicked most of the time – but still pretty cute, and a very convincing look at what it would look like if there were extinct dragons whose children suddenly came to life in 1920.
Yes, indeed, I use 'fun' a lot in this review; it fits!
Book Two of this series is almost as much fun as the first one, Dragon's Egg (Dragon Eggs Book 1) . As usual with books two, the story line has been telegraphed to one extent or another; wild-eyed excitement at unsuspected things is mostly absent.
No spoilers here, because for all that I said the story line’s been telegraphed, that’s not completely true; the twists (kudos to Ms Sorensen!) are delightful. These twists include fun new characters who promise continued adventures for our heroes as the series continues.
We travel another several weeks with our three characters, Rose, Henry and Virgil, and most of their trials and tribulations won’t come as a surprise to any parent. The perseverance Rose and Henry demonstrate is both touching and necessary, given the responsibility they’ve accepted.
While I was offered an ARC in exchange for an honest review, I chose to purchase it from Amazon instead. This review, substantially unchanged, will also appear at Goodreads.
I read Dragon’s Hope on my MacBook Pro using the Kindle for Mac app. I noticed no typos or other errors of that sort. Based on my experience, I believe there should be no problem using a Kindle. Ms Urbaníková’s cover does deserve a color display.
I recommend Dragon’s Hope to anyone looking for a clean, fun—especially fun!—continuation of a series with three characters whose adventures in life are just beginning.
Christmas" the title of Emily Sorensen`s next book. I truly hope there will be more, many more books waiting to charge out of her pen and entertainer us for a very, very long time. Highly recommended for all ages.
Rose and Henry are getting married but they have so much more on their plates then just a wedding. Read "Dragons Hope" to see all the challenges they face, meet baby Virgil, and learn what life might look like for the parents of a baby dragon!
Language: It is reported that some characters curse or speak profanities but what they actually said is never even hinted at. If an author feels that a character must swear in a book to be true to the character or the story, this is the way to do it in my opinion.
Then the kudos: Wonderful writing, great story, fits all too well what I remember of my little brother. So what happens when a telepathic dragon hatches? He's hungry and we fing out how his parents fed him, and that he actually does breathe fire!
It is a story of a baby becoming a person. I can not wait for the next book (supposedly this month.)

I am also appreciating the exploration of female scientists in the 1920s.
