We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that's not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he's still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years.

Opinion

From Library Staff

It's rare that I can find a book that combines so many elements I like -- fantasy, romance, fairy tales, female Bildungsroman, and magical worldbuilding, in this case. And if you're into audiobooks, it's read by someone with the absolute perfect accent and tone of voice.

I am enjoying the book, but I am annoyed by the reader. The accent which she assumes is fine, but the halting nature of her reading puts me a little in mind of Shatner ...

When Agnieszka is mysteriously chosen over her friend Kasia to become the next servant to the Dragon, a wizard who protects their valley from the evil Wood, she begins to understand that maybe she was different all along. This book was very action-packed with lots of magic spells being cast in order for good to defeat evil. Agnieszka was a bit immature at times but her relationship with the Dragon was charming. I kept wanting to get to the end because there were so MANY trials she had to overcome but overall it was a good read. I'd say it's a fun fantasy book that would work for people more interested in YA fantasy.
