“The Dragon and the Princess” is intended as a fun novella about two kingdoms involved in a symbiotic relationship around dragons and sacrificial virgin princesses (SVP). Every eight years a dragon invades the kingdom of Saragond and a ritual must be followed – to the letter. Princess Rozlinda is the current SVP involved in the tedium of training until she receives a vision of a mysterious man from the other kingdom of Dorn, the land beyond the Shield.  The dragon has come a year early and everyone is in a tizzy to sacrifice Princess Rozlinda. But this time everything does not go according to plan.  The main characters were: Rozlinda – a princess, Rouar – a dragoner, and Seesee – the dragon. There were complicated aspects of the backstory between the two kingdoms and the dragon myth/physiology that didn’t seem well organized in the story. I had to re-read a few paragraphs more than a few times or go back when plot points were better explained to see if things made sense. There were a few times when Seesee ‘spoke’ and because there were not italics in the e-book version I had, making it difficult to distinguish between description, POV, and Seesee ‘speaking.  The romance seemed shallow and rushed between the two characters and I would have enjoyed reading more about Rozlinda in Dorn.  This story taught me how difficult a novella can be to plot and write a lot of things (character and romance) have to happen very fast. I felt there was a lot of potential in this story and it would have been more successful with a higher word count.
