The Dragon Princess: 08/25/19

The Dragon Princess

The Dragon Princess by E.D. Baker is the sixth of the Tales of the Frog Princess series. The book takes an unusual but welcome turn as a fantasy series, opting to jump to the future where Emma and Eadric are married and the parents of a princess with her own curse. When Millie loses her temper (and what teenager, doesn't?) she turns into a fire breathing dragon!

After books and books, including some prequels, dealing with Emma's family, it was a delight — an absolute delight to meet a new princess and a new cast of characters, and to see the family grown and matured.

Millie, though, is beset with a need to get engaged to further improve diplomatic relationships between her parents' kingdoms and others. She's not into the idea at all and has so far managed to scare away every possible suitor, either through the backfire of magic her mother has used to control her curse or through transforming into a dragon.

Things though become desperate when Millie's birthday party is moved to her grandparent's castle — the one in Montevista — the one that isn't keen on magic. So fed up with the curse and hiding the truth from her grandparents, Millie decides to find a curse for the problem. She's told the Blue Witch of the Frozen North holds the answer.

Besides getting new characters, now we get a larger view of the world. Millie's quest along with her friends takes her into all sorts of danger and gives her and her friends changes to prove themselves.

I'm glad I stuck with the series to get to this book. It was refreshing and entertaining. The seventh book in the series is Dragon Kiss (2009).

Five stars
