"You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight."
Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows she must find the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and get some of the precious milk in order to save her foster sister’s life. Since Kaeldra can communicate with dragons, she is the only one who can accomplish the task. And so she begins a journey that will entwine her fate with that of three little draclings and one would-be dragonslayer—a journey that will become a struggle for life.

Gr. 5-7. When Kara is taken to the king because of her special powers to call down birds, she at first can't understand why her talent should be so important. But after living in the royal palace for a while, she discovers her real mission will be to call down dragons so the king can slay them, avenge a death, and win the hand of Signy. With her gyrfalcon Skava, Kara is led to the place of the dragons and forced to call them. A dragon who had saved Kara's life when she was a small child heeds the call and is immediately slain, much to her horror. When bid by the king to call the rest, she struggles with her decision and escapes, vowing to save the dragons. In this exciting drama, readers empathize with the deftly crafted characters, always aware of the struggle between good and evil, honor and dishonor. The falconer's art meshes neatly into the plot, making this well-written fantasy a joy to read. Dragons are a mysterious and powerful subject with large audience appeal, and Fletcher pens some of the best yarns around. Deborah Abbott
