Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Summer 2009 Kids' List
“I eagerly anticipated Michelle Knudsen's first middle-grade work of fiction, and this story of a mage apprentice and a princess includes a dragon, magic, murder, friendship, romance, and humor. This one will appeal to those young readers who enjoy a bit of fantasy but who also like their characters to have realistic strengths and weaknesses.”
-- Roni K Devlin, Literary Life Bookstore & More, Inc., Grand Rapids, MI


Description

Calen, a lonely young mage-to-be, never dreamed that Princess Meglynne would become his friend. And impulsive Meg never imagined that secretly tending a baby dragon would cause her to be "linked" to the winged beast — for life. Being attuned to a dragon’s thoughts and feelings is exciting but scary, especially when their destinies are tied (for better or worse). And now Meg’s sister is about to marry a prince to end a war between kingdoms, a celebration that only Meg and Calen know is endangered by a murderous plot. How can a girl, a boy, and a dragon merge their magic and strength to bring down a powerful traitor before it’s too late? From the author of Library Lion comes a classic middle-grade fantasy soaring with sorcery and suspense, spunk and adventure, friendship and first romance, and a cast of truly enchanting characters.
