Flight of the Dragon Kyn by Susan Fletcher – “You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight.”Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows she . I will admit I was a little apprehensive about Flight of the Dragon Kyn. After all as a general rule prequels don’t tend to be as good as their originals and I was. In part two of Susan Fletcher’s Dragon Chronicles, young listeners are presented a conflict of virtues: that between the nurturing compassion of young heroine.

Thanks for telling us about the tne. This one is my favourite in the series. But at the same time, it doesn’t hesitate to be dark and gritty, to present moral dilemmas and largely feature the taking-responsibility-for-your-action theme. And of course, who can forget Kazan?

Much as Kaeldra did, Kara’s ending saw her her happily married to her flgiht love interest and an expectant mother, though again her decision to marry said man seemed rather out of left field. She can speak to all birds and dragons! Open Preview See a Problem?

FLIGHT OF THE DRAGON KYN by Susan Fletcher | Kirkus Reviews

I thought that Kara was a more interesting character and the world she inhabited seemed a bit more filled out, plus the writing drzgon to have improved slightly from the previous volume. Kara, the heroine, is a stronger character and individual, and plays much better as protagonist.

Once again, the love plot is predictable but I will refrain from writing details i This is the second book of the Dragon Chronicles, following the story of Kara, the first Dragon-sayer.

Refresh and try again. Woven around the story of the dragons is a court intrigue, with 3 siblings vying for power, and ot Although the synopsis of this book says that Kara, our main character, was left in a cave to die, that is not what happened. But at the same time, it doesn’t hesitate to be dark While clearly intended for a YA audience, there is something very non-YA about this books and the others in the series.


Her parents, thinking there was no cure, left her in a cave to die. This book depressed the hell out of me as a kid. Kara was a strong heroine, yet she also had doubts about herself and her gifts.

This is one of my future re-reads, I just know it. Read this in junior high. I love dragons so when I went to the library I found this book with the 1 and 3 book. I was pulled into this story and enjoyed it! Now I really hope the next one is in between, or after the first one Kara finds friends in Rath, Myrra and Corwyn. Some of the wording could have been improved to make for a better reading experience for the target group.

Kara can summon birds, so King Orrik assumes that she can also summon dragons seeing as birds and dragons are akin.

This book left me responding out loud. At least one person guffaws at her mocking her supposed gift, which causes others to doubt her, which gives her an out. We see some stark and brutal danger to Kara herself and her friends which finally shatters the feeling of safety, albeit I do wish Kara’s actions in avoiding that danger and confronting the villain had been a little more than just a delaying action until the cavalry arrived and that Kara’s tlight to actually act independently had felt fragon little more like her growing up rather than another change of win on her part.

Fifteen years have passed since the end of the Red Ship War with the terrifying Outislanders. I’m not sure whether I enjoyed this more than book one or about the same. Though Kara is fifteen, she had a capacity to instantly make quick, snap judgements or go through sudden changes of mood which made her feel rather younger. Good for a younger audience.

Flight of the Dragon Kyn, by Susan Fletcher (1993) E

I filght down a gull, too, which landed on my elbow, and a crake, and a sleepy stony owl that tucked one foot up and tried to take a nap on my arm. Eona series Alison Goodman 9.

Be the first to ask a question about Flight of the Dragon Kyn. I decided not to become the daughter of a famous author which is impossible to arrangebut to become a famous author myself which is difficult enough. We’ve found that while readers like to know what we think of a book they find additional reader reviews a massive help in deciding if it is the right book for them. I like that Susan Fletcher can convey so much about Kara and Kaeldra in the first book without hashing out all the thoughts going through her mind.

In all while Flight of the Dragon Kyn served its purpose as a prequel well enough, it did not stand out quite as much as Dragon’s Milk for all I did enjoy the way Fletcher depicted her world. She is strong in her own way and continues to make her own path throughout the book. Kara’s story begins when she is recruited by the King of the Krag’s to help clear the land of dragons. But overall, this is a great book, and it was nice to see such an improvement.
