Alliana, Girl of Dragons

We rated this book:


Alliana, Girl of Dragons is an interesting, immersive variation on Cinderella. Alliana’s stepmother, sister, and brother mistreat her. The only comfort she receives is from her step-grandmother Mari. But one day, Mari passes away and leaves her to fend for herself. She meets a dragon while hunting for herbs. Soon, she meets a witch who needs help. Can she help the witch and escape her stepfamily once and for all?

I like Alliana, Girl of Dragons a lot, although it did start out slow. I find the plot interesting and think it makes sense. In addition to having a good plot, it can be quite funny. The dragon tends to lighten the mood. I think that this book should belong in every children’s library. Kids from seven to twelve who like a combination of Disney-style adventure and fantasy will like Alliana, Girl of Dragons. This book is best read for enjoyment, not schoolwork, but school libraries might buy it for their students to borrow.
