Ivy is a princess who must wait in a tower for a dragon to devour her. She isn’t crazy about this idea but it’s her duty agreed to in the Dragon Treaty. So on her 14th birthday she’s imprisoned in a tower and waits her fate. But when the dragon comes, he’s not interested in a princess snack. He’s peaceful and becomes friends with Ivy. The real villain of this book is the prince, who is greedy and cruel, and to conquer him, Ivy joins forces with the dragon on a magical journey that’s dangerous fun.
I really loved this book! It has a great voice and unexpected twists. There will be a sequel, too, I recently found out from the author, Dawn Lairimore. I saw the cover, similar to the first book with a dragon flying heroine. I can’t wait for IVY’S MEAN STALK, a twist on Jack & the Beanstalk, coming in Sept 2012
