  Booklist Review

This follow-up to Dragon Slippers (2007) continues the fairy-tale adventures of Creel, an orphan who escaped coldhearted relatives and, with the help of new dragon friends, found a new life as a talented seamstress in the city. In this equally enjoyable installment, Creel grows restless with her sewing business and jumps at another opportunity for magical adventure when her country is threatened. Fans of the first book will find the same strengths here: the imaginatively detailed scenes; the thrilling, spell-fueled action; the possibility of romance with a prince; and the appealing, brave heroine.--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2008 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Creel, the heroine of Dragon Slippers (2007), has by now established herself as a seamstress, but she secretly longs for more adventure, as she confesses to her dragon pal Shardas. After being summoned to the palace because of her expertise and success in dealing with dragons, she finds herself embroiled in a war led by an evil dragon who has usurped power in a distant land and now threatens to conquer and dominate her own. Creel is feisty, brave, daring and loyal to her dragon friends. She is also in love with Prince Luka, the King's youngest son, who shares her adventures and accepts her as an equal. George endows each of the characters, human or dragon, with a unique personality, and although their tale is set in a distant, mythical past, these characters speak and act with a modern sensibility that makes them accessible to young readers. Action, danger, pathos and romance--this fantasy has it all. (pronunciation guide) (Fantasy. 10-14) Copyright ©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
