  1. Wives heard of this series but know nothing about it. With sneaking out windows and a court case it seems very exciting.

  13. Great line! You've really brought to life a piece of the book, a rogue dragon with a murderous gleam!!

  14. Love the cover! Don't think I'd want to meet up with any "rogue dragons," though -- regular dragons are bad enough! Hope you're enjoying this one.
