Falcon’s Egg by Luli Gray

Spread the love

Stars: ****

This book was read for the Here Be Dragons and Once Upon a Time Challenges.

The title is a little misleading because it make you think the egg belongs to a falcon bird. However in this case, the girl’s name is Falcon and the egg she finds is that of a dragon!

I enjoyed this story, as the particulars of the dragon, from egg to adolescence are believable. What I mean is, although I’ve never seen a dragon, if one does exist, I could see it looking like and behaving like it does in the story. The 11-year-old girl is also dealing with her own issues. Her father’s not around and she doesn’t really have any friends and is constantly teased at school.
This book is followed by Falcon and the Charles Street Witch by Luli Gray, which I also read for these two challenges.
