Dragon’s Keep, Janet Lee Carey


Although the premise behind this book is appealing (a princess born with a dragon’s claw instead of a finger seeks a cure before she marries and becomes queen), the abruptness of several pivotal plot points mars the story, making it difficult to follow and maintain as believable. The sudden change in Lord Faul’s character is too abrupt and sudden to be believable. Similarly, many of the characters seem flat and undeveloped. Rosalind’s mother is an intriguing character, though her stubbornness and overprotectiveness of Rosalind becomes tedious. I also found it difficult to believe all the shame and horror that was ascribed simply to Rosalind’s dragon claw.

I recommend Patricia C. Wrede’s dragon series for readers looking for books combining princesses and dragons.
