But it’s not easy with persistent knights trying to rescue her, other dragons trying to cause trouble, and mysterious wizards who seem to be plotting something. Something that can’t be good.

It’s the best book I’ve read so far in my life! If I were president I would order everybody to own this book in the U.S. because it’s so good! I mean, it’s got wizards, dragons, a princess…what more could it need?

(A dedication to it’s biggest fan – me.)
