Editorial Reviews

In part two of Susan Fletcher’s Dragon Chronicles, young listeners are presented a conflict of virtues: that between the nurturing compassion of young heroine Kara, possessed of the unique ability to commune with dragons, and the misguided ignorance of King Orrik, dedicated to eradicating the winged beasts from his kingdom. The cruel king recruits Kara, presenting her an unenviable decision: follow her sovereign and forsake her friends of flight, or live as a fugitive among the reviled dragons. Actress Angele Masters is like a sonorous siren, her lilting, singsong cadence providing a captivating canvas for Fletcher’s unique language, almost musical in nature. Indeed, Masters’ old-world theatrics emanate an almost Shakespearean tonality, nevertheless softened by clear diction and fluid storytelling, sure to capture children’s imaginations.

Publisher's Summary

"You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight."

Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows she must find the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and get some of the precious milk in order to save her foster sister’s life. Since Kaeldra can communicate with dragons, she is the only one who can accomplish the task. And so she begins a journey that will entwine her fate with that of three little draclings and one would-be dragon slayer - a journey that will become a struggle for life.

Good book, not first in series

This book has a blurb for both book 1 (Dragons milk) and this book (book 2). Book one doesn’t appear available on audible

Nice little story.

Nice story, but not a great deal of depth yet. I like the sorry line. not a lot of character building, more so just descriptions and their reactions to things which were pretty brief.
still enjoyed the listen though.

praise Dragons

have to wait a bit for the Dragons, couldn't even listen to a few chapters cause I love Dragons an it was pro dragonslayer. nice talk about a Dragons lair and though the Dragon are not invincible they are pretty smart, I believe Dragons cannot be destroyed so that's why I had problems with the story, well read however
