I love the 'first' book of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles (Dealing with Dragons) and am always amazed that Wrede wrote this one first. It has all the usual suspects, a fantastic talking lizard (it does, it really does) and resolves the cliff-hanger that was Book 3. Worth completing the collection.

I first read this book when I was in the fifth grade and it's still one of my favorites. This series was the one that originally got me into the the fiction/fantasy genre. It's the perfect book to start off on. The plot is complex without being confusing, and very exciting. I loved the characters and the way the story moved along. I would suggest this book to any young reader.

Excellent characterizations. This conclusion to the Enchanted Forest Chronicles is, unlike the previous volumes, written in first person. It relates the coming of age adventure of Daystar, Cimorene's sixteen year-old son, who doesn't know that he is the son of the King and Queen of the Enchanted Forest. Daystar and his fire-witch friend Shiara, and a young dragon are new characters. The old characters, his mother Cimorene, the witch Morwen, the Magician Telemain, the King (not Queen) of Dragons Kazul, are introduced in a reasonable way and all work together to free Daystar's father, Mendanbar, from the plots of the Society of Wizards and the still-inept wizard Antorell. I liked this book well enough to have read it at least five times and purchased it three times. It is well worth (re-)reading. Logan
