LoveReading View on The Princess Who Flew with Dragons

Exciting fantasy adventure successfully mixing dragons and diplomacy

Princess Sofia of Drachenheim is suspicious when her sister the Crown Princess announces she’s sending her on a diplomatic mission to a far off kingdom, and dismayed to learn that she’ll be travelling there by dragon (her kingdom has an alliance with a family of mighty dragons, as recounted in previous books in this series). The trip turns out to be more exciting and more dangerous even than Sofia had expected, but it does enable her to make new friends, new decisions about her life, and to spread her own wings as diplomat and dealmaker. This can be read as a stand-alone but the series is an excellent one, clever, funny and with some great characters.

Readers who like their fantasy heroines smart and sharp should also look out for Laura Powell’s Silver Service Mysteries series, and A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison.

Other Info

A glorious middle grade fantasy adventure by the author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart, about dragons, ice giants and 'perfect' big sisters.

The Princess Who Flew with Dragons Synopsis

Sofia is the other princess. Not the crown princess - that's her perfect big sister, Katrin. Sofia is the princess who always says the wrong thing; who hates going to parties; who doesn't like people; who just wants to sit and read her books. So when Sofia is shipped off on a stomach-churning dragon flight to make another royal visit, she decides it's time for this princess to take a little break. In disguise, Sofia soon finds herself discovering a magical city of learning, new friends and freedom. In short, everything is going wonderfully ... right up until it goes horribly wrong. And that's before the ice giants show up.

From the author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart comes a magical third adventure about acceptance, family and friendship, perfect for fans of Cressida Cowell and Cornelia Funke

Praise for The Girl with the Dragon Heart;

A glorious whirlwind: city streets, royal courts, dragons, princesses and the dark webs and darker designs of the fairies under the earth. The colours leave you spinning, the air is chocolate scented, there is a storytelling heroine with a quest ... You couldn't ask for more! - Hilary McKay
