Queen Cimorene, Morwen the witch, and a host of other characters once again foil the plots of the perfidious wizards in this third volume of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles.
This time the dastardly wizards have stolen King Mendanbar's magic sword, vital to the health of the forest, right out of the castle armory. Morwen joins Cimorene, Kazul, Telemain, several cats, and Killer on a quest to retrieve the sword. Meanwhile, back at home, the forces of the wizards are gathering.

This book shows Wrede at her finest. I love the shift in POV during the whole series. A clearly fantastic book.

Calling on Dragons is the third book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, and this time King Mendenbar's magic sword has been stolen. But in order to protect the Enchanted Forest, Mendenbar must stay behind while Queen Cimorene sets out with their friends to retrieve the sword. The only thing is, she's pregnant. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bad guys are just lame. Once more the wizards are hatching their nefariously inept plots, and once more they are melted only to reappear later. *sigh* I've seen this somewhere before ¿ oh yes, in the first two books. The one thing I liked about this one was how it doesn't end all happily ever after. It clearly sets up for the next book, but things don't work out so neatly this time and there's a price to pay. Love is costly. This one plot point rings true amidst a clangor of jokes and sarcasm. The fun that is poked at fairy tales is amusing at times ("Mirror, mirror on the wall / I would like to make a call"), but ultimately this is another forgettable installment in a highly overrated series.

Yet more fun, anachronistic fantasy! Third in a series, this one's definitely quirky, and I enjoyed the point of view character here immensely. The fire witch had me cackling, as well as all the magical mishaps. Only thorn in my side? The recurring 'bad guys.' They're so silly as to be entirely unthreatening, and haven't really been interesting since midway through the second book. I kept thinking, if they're this easy to thwart (and man, are they easy to thwart), how are they even still around? Despite that, still an entertaining read.

I gave this book 5 stars because it was the first Fantasy book I read and introduced me to the wonderful genre.

Mendenbar and Cimorene must save the day again. The wizards have stolen Mendenbar's sword and are slowly sucking all the life out of the Enchanted Forest. A pregnant Cimorene leaves her husband at home to rescue the Forest with the help of some old, Telemain and Morwen, and new friends, a rabbit turned blue flying donkey.
