Dragon's Breath: 07/25/14
Dragon's Breath by E.D. Baker is the second of the Frog Princess books. Emma and Eadric are back to human form, and having a celebratory breakfast with Aunt Grassina, the Green Witch. But she is too distracted by the return of her long lost love who is now a talking otter.
To get Grassina's mind back in the game, Emma and Eadric decide to find the cure to Haywood's curse. Why not? they figure. They've already solved their own curse! More or less. Turns out that if Emma sneezes, she and Eadric become frogs again temporarily.
Curses are a fairly common thing in Emma's world, especially since she's royalty and destined to be the next Green Witch. Curses come in different degrees depending on how annoyed the person who made the curse was when making it. The worst of the curses involve either a nearly impossible task or a nearly impossible to find ingredient. In the case of Haywood's curse, it's a rare ingredient Ñ the breath of a green dragon.
Dragon's Breath is a chance to explore beyond the bounds of the swamp and to learn more about the role of the Green Witch and the burden of her curse.
