The exciting sequel to Dragon Slippers
In far off Citatie, Prince Luka has made an alarming discovery: the southern country’s entire army is mounted on dragons, and they plan to attack Feravel. It’s up to Creel to gather her dragon friends and lead them south, first as spies, then as soldiers, in a battle against an unexpected enemy. But the Citatian dragons outnumber those from Feravel, and some of Creel’s friends are still recovering from the first dragon war. Will they be able to win this fight, and will they still have a home to return to even if they do?
Why I Wrote It
This is the sequel that almost wasn’t.
When I wrote Dragon Slippers, I never imagined that I would write a sequel. That was it, I was done. Some good dragons had died, or we’d thought that they had, and so I added that last little bit of hope to the end of the story, to let the reader know that things would be okay.
And my editor said, How about a sequel? And readers said, Hey, where’s the sequel?
But I shook my head and said, No, no sequel. Until one afternoon while I was working on something completely different and instant messaging my husband betwixt bursts of literary genius, I said, "It’s too bad I’ve never had any ideas for a sequel, like blah blah blah blah. Oh!" And there it was. It was hard to write, I must say. Dragon Slippers flowed from my brain like I was being possessed by the spirit of some sort of dragony-book-writer-person. But this one was hard. Was it as funny as the first? Was it as dramatic? And how creepy was Krashath?! He just popped into my head and I thought, Wow! Now there’s a villain!
Is it as good? Better? You tell me!
