Reviews

Gr 5-9-An imaginary kingdom resembling Scandinavia during the Dark Ages is troubled by dragons, and spirited Kara, the heroine of this prequel to the author's Dragon's Milk (Atheneum, 1989), finds herself unwillingly enmeshed in her sovereign's plot to exterminate the creatures. Kara, marked as an outsider by her green eyes and her ability to communicate telepathically, uses this talent to call a dragon into range of the king's archers. Striken with guilt and grief when it is killed, Kara refuses to call the others. To escape her king's wrath, she flees into snowbound mountains, where she joins forces with a ``kyn'' or family of dragons, and conceives a plan to help them find refuge far from humankind. Kazan, a handsome foreigner, remains steadfastly devoted to Kara throughout. But her most engaging companion is Skava, the gyrfalcon she trains with the help of the royal falconer. The details of falconry, vividly described, add interest to the book. Fletcher's dragons are intelligent, if volatile, creatures of Earth, without the mythic resonance endowed them by Yep, McKinley, or LeGuin. Though characters and plot are a bit predictable, the writing is smooth, and the action fast paced. Buy for readers who enjoyed the earlier book, or for devotees of the growing number of dragon romances.- Margaret A. Chang, North Adams State College, MA
