Take an adolescent boy. Make him angry. Add dragons.

Saving Prince Bruno from the church crypts hasn’t turned out the way Nellie had planned. The boy is morose, angry, hellbent on revenge, and incapable of wielding the power he has been given. But the group of refugees who have fled from the city have bigger concerns. It’s winter, they need to survive, and find a safe place to recover and plan their next move.

But the boy does something stupid. Through the prince’s single impatient action, they don’t have the time to recover anymore. The wizard knows where he is, he has the whole city eating out of his hands, and Nellie has to come up with a plan to defeat him, because the only other option is death.

It is the story of Nellie Dreessen, a kitchen maid in the palace of Regent Bernard of Saardam.

Nellie has been working at the palace for some time, and has seen the best and worst in palace occupants. Now in the autumn of her life, her situation could not be worse. Her beloved queen died at the hand of magic and the regent dances to the tune of a church that doesn’t have the people’s best interest at heart.

But Nellie has a weapon. She inherits a box that contains a dragon. She doesn’t know anything about dragons and has no magic that would help her deal with a dragon. The dragon lives in a box and is pretty unhappy about that. Its master is a young prince, the dead queen’s bastard son. No one knows if the boy is still alive. Without him, the dragon will be hard to control. Everyone with a skerrick of magic has fled the town. Nellie is scared of magic, yet, she has no option but to learn about it.

    This is a series that is not short of depicting how how honesty and truth living the heart of a lonely in noticeable guide her actions that ending up black g a young 15 year old on the throne vacated by his parents through threats and murders. All this takes place under the guise of religion and it’s leader who preach against the use of magic, by driving anyone with magic out of the city or accusing them of witchcraft and killing them, while having homes raided and collecting anything relating to magic, then at the same time he is hiding his magic ability and delving in the black arts. This is a story that up hold truth in faith and belief that people are inherently good. A joyously heart warming ending with a lesson all can relate to.

    I am hoping that at some point, Patty Jansen, will continue with the tales and lives of the people of Saarland. She’s done a fantastic job with the Ghostspeaker series and Dragonspeaker trilogy. I loved meeting the various character and seeing the changes in their lives and stations.
    I would love to hear more about Casper and Bruno, who had a legitimate claim to the throne. The changes that Nellie helped to come about showed how much she had changed through her life. I was pleased to know she married Henrick.
    There were so many overwhelming situations with evil magic, the dragon and fire dog fighting, storming the castle as a troupe of performers to assess the situation they were coming into. With the help of Nellie’s candies, the people were lifted out of the fog where they could make wise decisions.
    Patty Jansen left just enough of an opening to come back to Saarland. I truly hope she does. I would reccomend reading these books in series as there is so much to take in. Start with the Ghostspeaker series and then on to the Dragonspeaker Trilogy as so many lives travel through the stories. A wonderful journey to take for anyone who likes magic and real people in the tales.
