Overview

This enchanting tale of dragons, betrayals, and the power of friendship is the first in a charming and thrilling series by New York Times bestselling author Jessica Day George.

Creel can't believe her aunt wants to sacrifice her to the local dragon. It's a ploy to lure a heroic knight so that he will fight the dragon, marry Creel out of chivalrous obligation, and lift the entire family out of poverty. Creel isn't worried. After all, nobody has seen a dragon in centuries.

But when the beast actually appears, Creel not only bargains with him for her life, she also ends up with a rare bit of treasure from his hoard: a pair of simple blue slippers, or so she thinks. But Creel learns that these shoes could be used to save her kingdom from the brink of war—or destroy it.

DRAGON SLIPPERS is one of the best fantasy books I've read in ages! I always feel like good fantasy is hard to find, but this book certainly succeeded in being that and much more.

When Creel's parents die, her rather silly aunt is going to be hard-pressed to come up with the money to feed Creel and her brother, so she comes up with a plan. She's going to give Creel to the dragon rumored to live in the hills near their town and convince a local nobleman's son to rescue and marry the "fair maiden."

Anyone with sense knows this is ridiculous. The dragon is only a myth...Right?

Wrong. Creel, however, is clever enough to talk her way out of the hands of the dragon (who doesn't really want to eat her, and, by the way, collects shoes, not gold), and out of the bargain she gets a comfortable pair of blue slippers, which she wears on the long walk to the capitol, where she wants to find work putting the sewing and embroidering skills taught to her by her mother to use. It seems like a simple enough plan; however, life is never as simple as we think it is going to be.

DRAGON SLIPPERS is an un-put-downable read, set in a vividly created fantasy world. The characters are wonderful, too (although I feel the storytelling, rather than the characters, is Jessica Day George's strength in this story). DRAGON SLIPPERS is an excellent novel, one sure to appeal to fantasy fans of all ages.

This book was a fantastic book that I found recommended at the end of a book in the Frog Princess series by E.D. Baker. I read it, and was not disappointed. It made me so crazy (in a good way) and I was so happy when Creel finally gave...I won't give the name... The wallop to the face she deserved! The storyline was amazing, the characters realistic, and everything in between so absorbbing and funny that I didn't put it down until I was finished with it! Recommended? Absolutely!

This book is SO amazing! It has a little bit of everything! Suspense,mystery,friendship, 'a tiny bit of' romance and loads of magic. Everyone will love this. I think its great that the tables have turned and know instead of the damsel in distress saved by the prince its The not so distressed damsel saving the prince, AND THE REST OF THE KINGDOM!! I loved this book!! Wow, I am not AS obsessed as I sound!! LOL

A wonderful story that wove itself into a great adventure, with many twists and turns.

The characters held so much life and soul to them, it was as if they were actually flesh and blood at one point in time.

Dragon Slippers was mixed with friendship, trust, betrayal, romance and sometimes even humor.

After reading Dragon Slippers and finding out there was a sequel, I went to the bookstore and bought the next book Dragon Flight.
Both books were well written and I would recommend them to anybody, especially dragon lovers.

This book was wonderful to read. I could never have imagined so many surprising and outragious plot twists could be packed into one book! Shardas was a great character and I grew to love him deeply. Jessica Day George is an awe-inspiring and very talented author. Her books only seem progress in quality as each one is written. Anyone who has read this book and loved it will truly adore all her others. ( believe me, I did! ) So pick up a copy if you haven't already! You won't be disappointed! - Roseliea

I've read this series 27 times. I'm dead serious. Twenty seven times. These books were so great that words don't even begin to explain how much I loved reading the books. After reading the first book, Dragon Slippers, I left a small stained glass window outside in hopes that a dragon would visit. I also called out "Feniul! Velika! Niva!" at random times in hopes that they'd appear out of no where. I know that sounds weird but it's as close as I can get to explaining my love for these books. After reading these books, I refused to read any other books by Jessica Day George because none of them could EVER compare to Dragon Slippers, Dragon Flight, or Dragon Spear. There NEEDS to be another series soon. If another series comes out in ten years the main big time fans would have moved on already(except me. I read these books when they first came out and I'm still obsessing over them).
