      Sadly, this book did not soar high like a dragon, it plummeted to the ground like a dead one. This book had potential, but the writing was atrocious. It's super boring and dry, a stiff read. Don't think it's a dry read like reading a classic piece of literature, this was dry because the author didn't know how to properly use the English language to enliven their writing. It was very basic writing. I read the first few chapters, was exceedingly bored, checked out some reviews, and decided to read [...]

      What an absolutely delightful find. I never expected a book of this depth when I started it - this definitely for older teens and adults.The Good:A well executed world and mythology that is consistent. I enjoyed the stories Tolmac tells Sondra, because they were an interesting insight into both the world and his personality in the telling. The kingdom of Ariva is charming, a fairy tale country in economic ruins. The conflicts between nations were complex enough to be realistic, but not so compli [...]

      I really liked the basic idea for this one. But it lost me after a couple chapters. Feels underwhelming, not many characters, not much worldbuilding.I like the cover and the premise. But so far, that's all.I'm surprised by the high rating so I'm struggling to read more.The dialogues all feel like I've read them before. No surpisses in any of the exchanges - between the sisters or at the ball. It feels very unoriginal. Lots of telling not showing. Cliches abound. Characterization is very thin. Th [...]

      Originally posted on my blog, Denim-Jacket Librarian DishesIt's amazing what you can come across when looking for something totally different. I think my disappointment at not getting into Touched by Venom made me start looking for other dragon books. In my search, I came upon The Princess's Dragon by chance and read the summary. Then, I read the first chapter on , and soon I was buying a copy of the ebook for my Kobo. Susan Trombley certainly knows how to grab a reader's attention, and I was ba [...]

      Job well done on a debut novel! If you like romantic fantasy featuring a strong heroine, you won't be disappointed by this one. I purchased this title after reading the sample chapters from the author's website, and I'm so very glad I did. At its core, this book is the untraditional story of a princess and a dragon (Sondra and Tolmac) and their growing love for one another, yet, it is so much more than that. The cast of characters is wonderful, and the author takes her time giving us a glimpse o [...]

      This author can write. This book is stuffed full of detail and the story was wonderful. I loved all the characters and the growth of these characters through the book. Ms. Trombley put so much into the book, it was almost overwhelming. I can't wait to see what else she writes in the future since this was quite a debut for an author. The book is a fantasy romance. While it has references to sex, and some "war violence", I think it is still appropriate for an older teen as well.

      The Princess dragon, is a very mature and well written book. It was beautiful and never held back anything, none of that subtle, OR blatant subtext of 'CELIBACY TILL THE FREAKING END'. Nor was it a, SEX SEX SEX kind of book either. It was very enjoyable to read, the plotline was strong, the characters even stronger, and every twist and turn was well thought out. The world the characters lived in was well-described and developed, and I was never reading the book thinking, 'What the hell's going o [...]

      I liked the premise and the main characters in this book. At many times in the book, the audience is treated to stories since Sondra apparently loves been narrated to, which at times makes it feel a little Arabian Nightish (though just a little). Although the stories did add a little charm to it and were entertaining to hear, it was a tad annoying to have the main character crib for stories every now and then. The writing and character portrayal is in keeping with a young audience, if only for t [...]

      While this book is based on a good idea and has a nice writing style, the total randomness of the story line has dropped my note from 4 stars to 2.It is a very frustating read.

    • Shasha says:

      Lovely fantasyThis fantasy adventure romance is rich in description with a magical plot.The adventure has many twists and turns but ends mostly happy. Maybe book 2 will address the loose ends.

    • Ana says:

      Before I decided to read this book I read a lot of the reviewsI struggled with some of the concerns voiced like the stereotypes, the poor world building and the shift between overly flowery and normal language. But I also liked it a lot. I'm partial with books on dragons. I'm the 1st person to admit such fault. Even as a kid, I always preferred a good book about dragons than one about faeries or other magical creatures, perhaps because of their size. I don't know for sure. What I do know for sur [...]

      ( The Princess's Dragon by Susan Trombley )I discovered this book a few years back right here on GoodReads however I delayed purchasing it due to its unavailability in actual stores, the only place I could ever find it was online and at an outrageous price. This year however I took a breath and closed my eyes, taking the plunge and spending way too much money for a single book so that I may finally have it. Honestly I don't want to write an excruciatingly long review over this book so I'll try k [...]

    • Tegan says:

      To be honest, dragons are my all time favourite mythalogical creature. (Sorry for spelling mind wandering a bit). But i battled to get past the first few chapters after she turned into one. I have nothing against the characters in the book, but i found Sondra lacking in something to want me to slog it out. I might read it again later when i am in a different mood but for now its a regretable DNF from me

    • Alycia says:

      It has dragons, which I love, but even with the dragons I just couldn't love this book. It tries too hard to be original, a twist on the usual fairy tale. I think even doing that, it was easy to predict what was going to happen and I had to roll my eyes at some of the characters and their personalities/actions. This book just left me with a 'meh' feeling.

    • Tigrish says:

      She's a princess! She's a dragon! She's a princess! This book is cool! It reads like an epic fairy tale!Very lighthearted and just a nice trip away from real life :)Love me a well rounded ending. And they lived happily ever after daaaw!Rated PG - 13.

    • Ellen Maze says:

      My 17 yr old daughter said this book is an enjoyable 5-stars (she read it all at once!) and now she wants to read the sequel. I wish I could give it to her, but alas, we have to wait! Recommended!

    • Annie says:

      The writing is short of juvenile. It has a great plot, but I think this book is more suited for a cross between childrens and young-adult.

    • Shira Glassman says:

      Overall, I recommend this book to people who like romances with fairytale settings and dragons as heroes (or fellow fans of "princess loves dragon"), but with some caveats. Review in list form because I'm busy and the book had no on-the-page LGBTQ+ representation:PRO'S-I enjoyed watching the hero and heroine's relationship & emotional connection develop over time, making their attachment believable even though there was initial discussion of physical lust here & there. Often in romance n [...]

    • Alicia says:

      I'm fairly certain the reason I enjoyed this book so much was because the one I read before this one was utterly horrible. It could also be the dragons since I'm a big dragon fan. I would also note that I graded(Wow, doesn't that make me sound like the teacher that I'm not?) this book on teen/young adult standards. 'The Princess's Dragon' was not by any stretch a difficult read for me and is one I would recommend for teenagers primarily because it's clean. Sure, there's some violence and blood i [...]

    • Ally says:

      I have read many dragon books, but this one really catches my eye (with the exception of Julie Kagawa's Talon). Here is romance, magic, kingdoms, a war, princesses, and most important and dramatic of all, dragons. YA Fantasy, The Princess's Dragon is best for older teens and those with a strong love for dragons and magic. Yes, dragons. Dragons. Who doesn't like dragons? Sondra (also known as Casiondra) doesn't believe in magic, despite her aptitude and potential for it. But one day, she insults [...]

    • Tara says:

      This was a great book filled with adventures, battles, and dragons. Sondra is the youngest princess of the kingdom Ariva and she has lost her belief in magic. To help her get it back, the old wizard that lives in the Woods turns her into a dragon and she can return to her human form once she believes in magic again. Confused and desperate for a way to change back, Sondra flees to Thunder Mountain where there is said a dragon resides. Sondra trespasses on the mountain and meets Tolmac a large bla [...]

    • Alexandria says:

      I really enjoyed this story. It is such a funky idea. A princess who doesn’t believe in magic (or magical creatures) goes and insults herself a wizard and gets turned into a dragon. COOL right!Princess Casiondra Falanell Cristalona Ariva – Sondra – used to believe in Magic until her sisters played a trick on her when she was young. And, rather than be hurt the way she was again Sondra has shut herself off from all thing magical. Instead she work s to find logical explanations for the thing [...]

    • Lillie says:

      Skimmed the last few chaptersTbh this book wasn't the worst thing I've read but the writing was something I couldn't get into. It prevented me from fully enjoying the story and I honestly kept wondering why I continued reading. There was also the fact that the writing often came off amateurish and too fast paced. I wanted things to just slow down and let them develop naturally, instead your forced into scene after scene of important information that just leaves you reeling.There was a butt ton o [...]

      Absolutely amazing! Best fantasy and romance book ever!!!!

    • Kate says:

      4,5 stars from me.This book was a gread reading-adventure.First, the language was great. The author really knows how to tell such a special story in a special, well-thought of language. It really does fit the world of Sondra and the characters good.Second: The story. It is a special story, and even with the ending a bit cheesy (because of that I could only give 4,5 stars and not 5 whole stars) it was still great. Some parts really reminded me of a fairytale, but this story is not for children (i [...]

    • Suzanne says:

      *I was given this book in exchange for an honest review*I really enjoyed this book! I loved how Sondra developed in the book and how she realizes where she really belongs even though she was happy with her original life but she discovers the wonderful feeling of freedom, strength, and love. The way that Sondra changed mentally and physically was the part that I enjoyed the most in this book, because even though she believes that she is not beautiful her smile is magic and brings joy to everyone' [...]

    • Yessenia Andaverde says:

      A very fine book indeed.I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning reading this book. I just had to know what happened next. It didn't matter that I had to get up at 5:30 to go to classes. And in the final week, I really have to be up to my game if I want to pass the semester.Still, this book is so addictive you simply can't put it down. The plot is simple, which makes it compelling, interesting and easy to follow. However, it becomes more and more complex as the story unrolls, and suddenly you like [...]

    • Rachel says:

      The writing was absolutely terrible- too much detail was given to boring premises yet it felt like the author skimmed over other topics. The organization was also very weird. For example, the first half of the book was told from Sondra's point of view but then it randomly switches to Derek's, then Elona's, then Derek's again, then Tolmac's, and then finally Sondra's! It really should have stuck to one view point or more evenly paced the different perspectives. The author also tried to create thi [...]

    • Maria says:

      These inexpensive self published PNR books are totally my guilty pleasure and I have read quite a few, but I have to say that this is one of my favorites ever. The fact that Sondra (SPOILER) falls in love with Tolmac instead of choosing her Prince Charming made this book seem super unique and fun. The five star review is totally relative though, as far as self published teen paranormal romance books go it is really great As a work of literature, not so much. It was well written enough not to be [...]

    • Madison says:

      This fantasy romance is an absolute gem! I was very pleased with this book, at first I was a little skeptical about reading it but then I couldn't bear to set it down for even a moment. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, and I screamed with the main characters! Susan Trombley is truly an artist in literature. The characters were well rounded and the world was very believable, I was so happy with this book, I've read it over and over again at least three times and I still can't get enough. This story [...]
