Dragon Daughter: Legends of the Sky

(1 customer review)


There is something that draws Milla to the silken bag. She tends its contents, knowing what to do instinctively. One of the eggs she discovers in the bag feels more connected to her than the others. When she realises she is tending dragons, long thought to have been banished from Arcosi, her status changes. She is no longer a servant within the Norlander family, but Dragon Daughter with a special role.

Danger lurks in every corner of Arcosi. Residents like Milla, Sartolan in origin, are considered lowlier than Norlanders. Yet the Sartolans are linked to the dragons of legend, who sought the spring water of Arcosi. What does the return of dragons mean? There are verses and ancient instructions. The Duke of Olvar is desperate to nurture and own the dragons. The four eggs are like jewels. Suddenly four children, including his son, to whom the dragons become attached, are charged with their care, a most precious task.

The dragons, the Duke, Milla and the Sartolans are restless and uneasy. This is a troubled time in Arcosi. What can the dragons teach Milla about her past and her family? What will be revealed about her future and that of the island? Dragon Daughter: Legends of the Sky is a thrilling, confident fantasy story, with a convincing heroine and bold, dragon daring feats and adventure. What’s more, it introduces a superb fantasy series, rich in wonder.

Dragon Daughter: Legends of the Sky

Liz Flanagan

(UCLan Publishing)

Milla sees a messenger hide a mysterious silken bag in a tree closes to where she is hiding. A little later, she is the witness to that messenger’s murder. What is in the bag? What will become of its contents? The stranger was killed, but why and by whom? Milla has little time to assess either the danger of what she’s seen or the bag she takes from the scene. All she knows is that she is drawn to its contents- four perfectly, pulsating, spherical eggs. Is Milla on the brink of discovering her destiny? Could Milla be a Dragon Daughter?
It seems that from the outset, Liz Flanagan ignites our interest and curiosity. What danger has Milla set for herself and then what is behind the murder? Then again, what does this bag mean? It seems that Milla’s discovery sets her and then her Arcosi island home, up for reflection and revision. Why are the Sartolans, such as Milla, so lowly? Although she enjoys a relatively removed position with the Royal family, others are not so lucky. Furthermore, might the eggs, her discovery, change the impression that this family have of her? Then again, if these are eggs of dragons, why have they returned, now? After all, they were once banished from Arcosi? It seems their reappearance is foretold, with words of great danger. Doesn’t this mean that they, and then Milla, and further, are at desperate risk?
Bookwagon loves this sky soaring fantasy adventure and suggests its readers will too. What’s more, there are further dragon-ish wonders in this writer’s compelling Wildsmith series. We are delighted to welcome Dragon Daughter: Legends of the Sky aboard.
