Book Review: The Dragons' Chosen by Gwen Dandridge

The Dragons' Chosen is a terrific YA novel about a princess and her fate. Genevieve has been raised to do her duty even though she is slightly spoiled. She will obey when a message is sent that Genevieve must be sacrificed to the dragons that appear every hundred years or so, no matter how frightened she is.
Chris is a Berkeley student who suddenly appears in Genevieve's kingdom, sent to help her. The two travel together to the mountains where the dragons are waiting. Chris, who appears and disappears depending on her class schedule, is determined to help Genevieve evade her fate.
The writing is excellent and the story moves right along. Both Chris and Genevieve are engaging heroines and their personal growth as the story proceeds is interesting. The dragons are great! I don't want to give away the story, but this is a great book for YA and older adults also. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
