I loved reading Princess Adele’s Dragon by Shirley McLain. It held my attention from start to finish. You don’t get bogged down as the story moves forward. I especially liked the storyline which included the Princess, her brother, the king and a couple of bad guys you love to hate. Draiocht, the dragon, plays a surprising role in the book. He doesn’t do what you expect him to. They are all interacting in Medieval times as Princess Adele and her brother try to save their kingdom, Valdoria.
I was given this book by the author for an honest review, and I’m so glad she did. It’s an easy read and if there are any errors I read right over them. I would recommend this book to anyone.
Princess Adele has gone in search of the dragon that has been destroying the surroundings. Her brother King Robert has been told by his advisor Lord Ashmore that the only way to tame the dragon is to sacrifie a girl child. Adele is determined that isn't to happen so she's gone in search of the dragon herself in hopes that she will be able to slay him. What she finds isn't something she would have ever expected. The dragon she finds quickly becomes "Princess Adele's Dragon." And he will protect her as well as her brother's kingdom to the end.
Princess Adele's Dragon is a book full of treason, friendship,love and even a witch who can cast some pretty mean spells. The real deceit comes when Adele and her brother find that two of the people they trust the most are out for one thing - to make the kingdom their own. They must hang on but at what cost?
This book may sound deep but it is really an easy read. It moves fast without losing your interest and attention to the events taking place. I think it's a book young readers would enjoy. I did.
(Note: This book was given to me as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review.)
I was given a copy of this book by the author to review. Thoughts and opinions are all my own.
One thing I find particularly refreshing about this story is the fact that Princess Adele is sister to the King, rather than daughter, which sheds a light on something different to the typical father/daughter relationship often seen in books containing royalty. I also love how Adele is sometimes the heroine, yet Anthony also gets his time to shine. Often authors try too hard to make the female lead always be the leader and yes, whilst it is nice to see strong-willed women in books, it gets a little tiresome when the male characters get constantly played down just to raise the female higher.
To read or not to read: Read. What this book lacks in emotional depth and description, it makes up for with a fantastically woven story that has a fairy-tale feel whilst being different to everything I’ve read before. It contains dragons, magic and royalty – what’s not to love! It’s a quick and easy read, guaranteed to get you hooked and pulled in to the land of Valdoria.
