Princess Adele's Dragon - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
When she arrived at the opening into the mountainside the creature used to enter and leave the mountain, she pulled out her sword, said a prayer. She took the first step inside the cave to face her destiny. As she worked her way down the cavern, the heat rose from deep in the cave... She stopped to rest and heard a sound coming from below. It sounded as if someone was crying. It tugged at her heart for an unknown reason. I wonder if the dragon trapped someone. It's the saddest thing I've heard in a long time... In a moment's time, the ground trembled in a rhythmic fashion. That meant one thing. The beast was on the move. At least, the crying stopped.
Princess Adele has gone in search of the dragon that has been destroying the surroundings. Her brother King Robert has been told by his advisor Lord Ashmore that the only way to tame the dragon is to sacrifie a girl child. Adele is determined that isn't to happen so she's gone in search of the dragon herself in hopes that she will be able to slay him. What she finds isn't something she would have ever expected. The dragon she finds quickly becomes "Princess Adele's Dragon." And he will protect her as well as her brother's kingdom to the end.
Princess Adele's Dragon is a book full of treason, friendship,love and even a witch who can cast some pretty mean spells. The real deceit comes when Adele and her brother find that two of the people they trust the most are out for one thing - to make the kingdom their own. They must hang on but at what cost?
This book may sound deep but it is really an easy read. It moves fast without losing your interest and attention to the events taking place. I think it's a book young readers would enjoy. I did.
