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)
