5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read, 19 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Slippers (Hardcover)
I won't precis the book as that has been done above. The book is well written and egaging from the start, and the characters are well developed and the plot interesting and well thought out. The style is very similar to that of Particia C Wrede, and if you have enjoyed this you will enjoy her Enchanted Forest Chronicles as well, and vice versa.
My only gripe is that the ending didn't really tie up all the loose ends as well as I'd like, and I'd really like a sequel to find out how the heroines relationships progressed, and some more about the dragons please - !
Definately worth adding to your shopping basket, suitable for younger readers, but engaging enough also for adults of 29!

This review is from: Dragon Slippers (Hardcover)
DRAGON SLIPPERS is one of the best fantasy books I've read in ages! I always feel like good fantasy is hard to find, but this book certainly succeeded in being that and much more.

When Creel's parents die, her rather silly aunt is going to be hard-pressed to come up with the money to feed Creel and her brother, so she comes up with a plan. She's going to give Creel to the dragon rumored to live in the hills near their town and convince a local nobleman's son to rescue and marry the "fair maiden."

Anyone with sense knows this is ridiculous. The dragon is only a myth...Right?

Wrong. Creel, however, is clever enough to talk her way out of the hands of the dragon (who doesn't really want to eat her, and, by the way, collects shoes, not gold), and out of the bargain she gets a comfortable pair of blue slippers, which she wears on the long walk to the capitol, where she wants to find work putting the sewing and embroidering skills taught to her by her mother to use. It seems like a simple enough plan; however, life is never as simple as we think it is going to be.

DRAGON SLIPPERS is an un-put-downable read, set in a vividly created fantasy world. The characters are wonderful, too (although I feel the storytelling, rather than the characters, is Jessica Day George's strength in this story). DRAGON SLIPPERS is an excellent novel, one sure to appeal to fantasy fans of all ages.

It took some convincing from me to get my8 year old son to read this as it has a girl on the front. But once read it is his favourite book and he reads loads of different authors.
