Orphaned after a fever epidemic, Creel befriends a dragon and unknowingly inherits an object that can either save or destroy her kingdom.
I’ve owned this book for a few years, but had not read it until a week or so ago. I picked it up on a whim, not sure how I would like it since I’m not a big fan of talking dragons.
However I couldn’t put this book down. It was the perfect blend of adventure, romance, and fantasy. In fact after finishing Dragon Slippers I found out that it was the first in a trilogy, so I spent much of my Thanksgiving weekend reading the rest of the trilogy.
