Overview

"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 dragonslayer—a journey that will become a struggle for life.

As the last of the dragon eggs, laid long ago, begin to hatch, Lyf becomes a reluctant friend who tries to save both the dragon mothers and their newly born children from their enemies.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Fans of Fletcher's Dragon's Milk (1989) and Flight of the Dragon Kyn (1993, both Atheneum) will welcome this return to Elythia, while new readers will be inspired to seek out other titles in the series. Once again, dragons are threatened by bounty hunters and a young girl must find a way to lead them to safety. The heroine this time is Lyf, Kaeldra's frail foster sister. Fletcher frames her tale with the comments of a sly harper, a device that adds humor and suspense to the telling as well as offers a glimpse of Lyf's fate after the adventures are over. The story itself is fast paced and features a multiplicity of characters and events. While characterization of minor players is sometimes tantalizingly brief, it's a measure of the author's skill that many readers would prefer to linger with her lively creations, especially the young dragons. Lyf's development from a cosseted child to a determined, self-reliant protector of those in need takes place gradually and believably, while her unique talent (an ability to enter the consciousness of birds) plays an important part in the tale's resolution. Youngsters will appreciate the fact that despite the presence of caring and helpful adults, it is Lyf, Kaeldra's young son Owyn, and other children who effect the ultimate deliverance of the threatened draclings. Given the perennial popularity of the subject matter and Fletcher's engagingly accessible style, this book should be popular in most libraries.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

    not the best

    i think that it was the worst of the three and did not have enough character development and i think Susan Fletcher has done better. The only people i recommend this book to are the younger people that have a hard time understanding more complex plots.
