When Creel’s parents die she and her brother are sent to live with their aunt and uncle but there is not enough to go around to take care of everyone and so her aunt comes up with this scheme to have Creel get kidnapped by a dragon and force someone rich to save her and marry her and take care of her whole family. The adventure begins when she is actually kidnapped by a dragon and she has to bargain for her life.
I love Jessica Day George and this is a really fun beginning to a delightful trilogy. I love the characters and their growth over the course of the books. If you love books with dragons, spies, and adventures you will love this series.
