Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Audun is a young dragon who is in love. Typically, dragon love lasts forever. This time, however, Audun has not chosen to love a dragon, but a human princess named Millie. His family does not support his quest to pursue this princess. Undeterred, Audun breaks his allegiance to his loved ones and sets off to profess his unwavering love to Millie. Once, many years back, Audun had become trapped inside the walls of an ice castle. It was Millie who had freed him and he never forgot it. Miraculously, Audun is elated to find that she reciprocates his feelings. Her family is disinterested in the growing attraction between Audun and Millie and decides to intervene. Millie's mother casts a spell and they are gone instantly. Audun is left with the understanding that if he wants to be with Millie he will surely find a way. And so begins his adventure as he searches for his one love. Baker creates an exhilarating series of events that follow. Readers will be enraptured from start to finish and reluctant readers will be drawn in immediately. Middle school language arts teachers will find this novel useful in highlighting positive character attributes. Dragons cannot lie, and the reader will be amazed at Audun's choices as he makes decisions that will affect his future. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Baker has lost momentum since The Frog Princess (Bloomsbury, 2003), the first book in the series. This installment revolves around the dragon Audun, who wants to become a human so that he can woo Millie, his sweetheart from the previous book—a human who can turn into a dragon. It seems that each of their families harbors prejudices against the other life-form. To gain the knowledge he desires, he must undertake a series of quests for the dragons of his own kingdom: fetching the fertile egg of a desert-dwelling bird, exchanging it for a flute that's held by a sea witch, and so on. The quests seem never-ending, and become tedious and regrettably predictable. An evil sorcerer, spied in passing early on, comes in view again and again, until he is revealed to be Audun's most formidable antagonist. Of course, every good deed the dragon performs, no matter how inadvertent, influences his progress toward his goal. All ends happily, with a dragon kiss, if readers care enough to read that far.—Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, NY
School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—In E.D. Baker's follow-up (2009) to The Dragon Princess (2008, both Bloomsbury), Millie is gone and Audun is a lovesick teenage dragon who can't bear to be separated from his new love. He searches for Millie without the blessing of his family because Millie is a human who can turn into a dragon. Audun seeks help from the Dragon King to learn how to change form into a human so he can be with Millie. Before granting Audun's request, the Dragon King sends him on incredible quests to test his resolve and bravery. When Audun succeeds and convinces the Dragon King and his grandmother of his true love for Millie, he is taught how to transform into a human. This skill becomes helpful when he helps the Dragon King fight for the future of all dragons. When Audun finally meets up with Millie months later, the reunion is rocky until misunderstandings are revealed and Audun once again wins Millie's heart. Narrator Katherine Kellgren gives voice to all the characters with energy that helps listeners visualize the story and understand the characters. For young dragon aficionados and fans of adventure stories.—Teresa Wittmann, Westgate Elementary School, Edmonds, WA

    Surprised

    I was browsing through the bookshelves of barnes and noble the other day and the orange cover caught my eye. I was so excited, I didn't even know E.D. Baker was writing another book in the series. I bought it and started reading immediately. I could not put this book down!I loved it from start to end. The only downside to this book was that Millie and Audun rarely saw eachother throughout the book =( and Audun was always completing task after task (I thought they would never end) I wanted to see more of Millie and Audun together but it was cool to see the perspective of Audun. He is the sweetest dragon ever!

    Woo Hoo!!

    I haven't read this book before but I have read the others. When I say others I mean all of them. I bet this one is really good. I reccomend this book to all. All of her books have had to do with magic, romance, and adventure. 3 favorite thing that I like to read about. I am E.d Baker's number one fan! Did you know that she has a website?!She is awesome!!!!By the way I reccomend her not new book called Wings. It is really good and it has to do with fairies and goblins. It has to do with a girl finding out who and what she is. Also it has a little romance.

    It's Almost Here!

    To be honest, I haven't read the series in a while, but I do know that it is thrilling and a great read. I can't wait to read the next book in this tale of adventure. This series is great for the young, the old, and the people who think their to cool to read these. It's good no matter what. As you join the adventure in these books it's about immposible to not excitedly wait the uppcoming approch of Dragon Kiss. We all are falling off our seats as it approches.

    ok

    this book is mostly about Audun the dragon trying to find Millie and makeing her family except that he is a dragon. if you liked the other books in the seris u may or may not like this one because it has pretty much nothing to do with Millie or Emma.
