The hundred-year war with Kragnir is over, and Meg will soon be named the princess-heir of Trelian. But her connection to her dragon, Jakl, is making her parents’ subjects uneasy. Will they ever accept this dragon princess as their future queen? It doesn’t help that Meg is suffering horrible nightmares and sudden, uncontrollable rages—and with the link joining them, Jakl is feeling the rages, too. Meg is desperate to talk to Calen, to see if he can help her figure out what is happening and how to stop it before she or her dragon does something terrible…
Meanwhile, Calen is having troubles of his own. He’s far away, gone off with Mage Serek to receive his first true mage’s mark. But his marking ceremony is disrupted by a mysterious magical attack, and ominous prophecies predict a terrifying new danger. The Magistratum’s greatest enemy may soon reappear—and the other mages believe that Calen himself may have a hand in his return!
The Princess of Trelian is a great book. I always love a good fantasy story, especially when there are dragons involved, and the Princess of Trelian is a great young adult read.
My favorite character in The Princess of Trelian is definitely Meg. She is stubborn and impetuous but she has a good heart and is trying to learn to balance her duty to her kingdom with her bond with Jakl.
The Princess of Trelian is follow-up to the book The Dragon Of Trelian. So it is part of a series. But that being said it was easy to read and though there are mentions to happenings in the first book it in no way detracts from the story nor does it confuse the reader at all. I highly recommend reading the Dragon of Trelian but if you get this one it will pull into the world of the kingdom of Trelian just the same.
This book flows well, I didn’t notice any grammar or spelling issues and the book was easy to read with no slow or dragging points.
I love the twist at the end and I am waiting happily to get a copy of the next book in the series when it is available. Michelle Knudsen has created a fantastic fantasy world filled with magic, dragons and princesses that captivates the reader.
