Calen, a lonely young mage-to-be, never dreamed that Princess Meglynne would become his friend. And impulsive Meg never imagined that secretly tending a baby dragon would cause her to be "linked" to the winged beast — for life. Being attuned to a dragon’s thoughts and feelings is exciting but scary, especially when their destinies are tied (for better or worse). And now Meg’s sister is about to marry a prince to end a war between kingdoms, a celebration that only Meg and Calen know is endangered by a murderous plot. How can a girl, a boy, and a dragon merge their magic and strength to bring down a powerful traitor before it’s too late? From the author of Library Lion comes a classic middle-grade fantasy soaring with sorcery and suspense, spunk and adventure, friendship and first romance, and a cast of truly enchanting characters.

I liked it and am very looking forward to the sequel, "The Princess of Trelian." The characters were well done. They were not cookie-cutter characters. They had their own flaws, fears, problems, and duties. I liked how Calen was not the typical fearless male protagonist. Meg seemed to have a little ...
It was a good story, with a great writing style and an engaging plot. The only problem I have with it was that it was a little long, or, at least, it felt that way.
Dragons. Princesses. Magic. True friendship. All that good stuff, plus add in a murder plot, an evil mage trapped in-between planes of existence and untrustworthy suitors, not to mention the two kingdoms on the brink of a peace after centuries of war. Sadly, the evil mage is vague, Sen Eva escapes a...
