Description (from B&N): With the Dragon Wars over, Creel finds herself bored with life as a seamstress. Then word comes that a bordering country has been breeding dragons in preparation for an invasion. Never one to sit around, Creel throws herself headlong into an adventure that will reunite her with her dragon friend Shardas, pit her against a vicious new enemy and perhaps rekindle a friendship with Prince Luka that seems to have gone cold.

First of all, I disagree with the synopsis. Her relationship with Luka has not "gone cold," so don't be misled by that little tidbit. And now on to the review of the book.

This book was a great follow-up to Dragon Slippers. All of the great main characters in the last book came together again for a whole new adventure, along with a few new characters. I loved that Marta played a much bigger role in this book, and her character was fleshed out more. She was one of my favorite characters in the first book, and it disappointed me that she played such a secondary role. But in Dragon Flight, Marta and Creel were the primary characters, instead of Creel and Luka. There were also some great new dragons, and new romances as well.

The story had a great plot, and the ending (at least the dragons' part of the ending) was completely unexpected. Creel, Luka, and Marta's ending in the book was expected, but very sweet all the same. This was a great read for a Saturday afternoon, and I look forward to the final book in the trilogy. A
