I have read the Book of Deacon trilogy and Jade just adds to the magic and fun of this world. I couldnt put the other series down and just the same, I read Jade in a short afternoon. I love this tale!

This story is set after the Book of Deacon trilogy. If you read this first, you may end up with some of the trilogy plot details.

I haven't read any of the supporting series, so I can tell you it works well as a stand alone book. A tenacious girl decides befriend a dragon, whether it wants it or not, after a scheming farmer tries to give her up to "appease" a dragon, that they think is causing a severe drought. She is, believably irritating, as most little kids are, in the way that's good for them, and helps them learn and grow - like asking many questions, and wanting to learn more and hear stories. I was a little disenchanted with the adult version of Jade, as she takes DIY to a new level, and of course everything she decides to do, she does perfectly. Speaking a few languages, tailoring, woodworking, farming, healing, I get it, she's got a lot of time on her hands, but it's a bit much. The novel then bows out as a short story, by wrapping things up in a suitable fairytale ending. All in all, it was a cute read, it was a kids book, but without talking down to the reader, or coming off as too childish. And I enjoyed it as an adult, and would have liked it as a kid, I can tell. I liked it enough to look into other books by the author, so that's a good sign if you're willing to come back for more : )

I bought this book for my Nook originally because of it's name "JADE", I have been reading and sharing books with my grand daugher in Hawaii who is named JADE. After reading it I was pleasantly surprised, I felt it was something Jade would like not only because they shared the name but it's similar to other books she has been reading. I wanted Jade to know she can also do what ever she wants to do in life, if she works hard and sets goals.

Some people have angels to watch over them, Jade has a dragon. Set in a mid-evil time period, Jade loses her parents only to be saved by a dragon. Against his better judgment, the dragon agrees to raise Jade. This is their story.

The story starts a little slow, but, as with the Book of Deacon novels, I quickly found myself in love with the characters. I highly recommend this and any of his other works.

This book is a continuation of The Deacon Triology. Some of the characters are mentioned from the Battle of Verril but they are not present in this book. The beautiful Dragon on the cover is the son of a dragon in the Deacon Triology. Worth the read iif you have read the other 3.

I read the Deacon books by this author so knew he could write and write well. For a short book, which normally I dont bother with, it felt like a full and filled full story. I was pleasantly surprised. Kudos. D.M.Baranoski

Great plot line. The character development of Jade and "Hal" the dragon she adopted as her father is well laid out. Highly recommend this stand alone book.
