Summary

"Mother taught me to be polite to dragons...."

Daystar never thought he'd be walking through the Enchanted Forest with a magic sword, a fire-witch, and a baby dragon. He never dreamed his mother, Cimorene, would tell him to leave their home and not to return until his task was complete. Or that he alone held the power to release King Mendanbar and the Enchanted Forest from the wizards' evil spell. He doesn't even know who King Mendanbar is.

But Daystar learns quickly, and that's good, because he's about to encounter magic and wizards and dragons - quite a deadly combination.

One of my favorites, now and forever.

All four of these books are wonderful. I would recommend reading all of them. P. C. Wrede is an amazing author.

not my favorite

I love the rest of the series, but 1st person story telling isn't my thing. and the voice portrayal of the dragon struck me as making them stupid rather than young.

Not nearly as good as expected

I wholeheartedly adore the other books in this series, let me say that first. But this one feels completely different. There are several annoying voices and the main girl is recorded at a lower volume than anyone else's voice so you have to keep changing the volume. It isn't just the voices though. The whole story is confusing and I listened to it all the way through hoping that it would get better and it does not. I'd rather have just been left with the cliffhanger ending of the last book and imagined my own way that they solved the problem. The third book is my favorite in the series and I hate that it lead to this disappointment.

Live these books!

I absolutely love these books! The only problem I had was that some voices are louder than others.

Great story, excellent cast, uneven volume

I loved the earlier stories in this series, and this one was no disappointment. The writing was excellent, and I liked the cast performance a lot. My big complaint is that the character of Shiara is voiced about half as loud as the rest of the cast. I had to keep turning the volume up to hear her lines at all!

An entertaining story from start to finish

Just like the rest of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, this book is funny, lighthearted, and an absolute blast from start to finish.
