Dragon Spear by Jessica Day George

                                                                                              Amazon Description
Dragon Spear (Dragon Slippers)In this follow-up to Dragon Slippers (2007) and Dragon Flight (2008), seamstress Creel is preparing for her wedding to Prince Luka, surrounded by beloved dragon friends, when Velika, a dragon queen, is kidnapped. All nuptial plans are postponed as the couple searches for Velika, whose pregnancy heightens the urgency of the rescue. As in the previous series titles, George creates richly satisfying fantasy realms, from opulent palaces to forest lairs, while the tender romances, genuine friendships, rapid dialogue, and thrilling adventures will continue to delight readers. Newcomers will find some background explanations, but this is best for series fans.

In this book, Creel and Luka are visiting their dragon friends on the Far Isles, when Velika is kidnapped by a smaller, dull-colored dragon who they thought to be their friend.  They travel across the sea to an uncharted,  unheard  of island.  There they have to do everything they can to save the queen of the dragons, even if it means Shardas using alchemy. (Alright, that last bit anyone who has not read the book won't understand.  Isn't that even more incentive to read it?)

This book was so good!  But it is also sad.  No, the book is not sad, contrary to what I just said.  What is sad is that this book is is the LAST IN THE DRAGON SERIES!  *Sob*.  It was an amazing book.  I liked 'Peder No-People'!  I am not going to tell you who that is, but be on the look out for him!
I thought this book was a great end for a wonderful trilogy!  With romance, adventure, fun, and dragons, this is a amazing book!
