      Read it says Endured is like it.Often times, first impressions are wrong My first impression of Dragon s Keep was that it was boring But after I read it, I learned I was wrong it was boring AND disgusting.Boring, because the author had all these details in there that you think might be important, but aren t in the end They re either vaguely followed up so you re not really sure, or just dismissed all together, and never mentioned again Like that little girl that died in the beginning Disgusting [...]

      I did not enjoy Dragon s Keep as much as Dragonswood The main reason being is that the romance lacks development One minute they meet and the next she is in love with him It s the insta love thing This resulted in me never finding the romance convincing The book is really split into three different parts The first two we spend a good amount of time on, but the last part is sadly mostly glossed over This is where the development of the romance could have come in, but unfortunately we are mostly j [...]

      2.5 starsWell, I liked the dragon aspects of the book, esp as they were not the fun, endearing, yet noble and powerful creatures of most of the series that I like These dragons are far the wild monsters that appear in legends and the scary, if still majestic animals that everyone is out to kill And they are not all wrong in that inclination to eliminate such a threat Which made our heroine s time spent with these creatures and the relationship that she builds with them all the vital and intere [...]

      Prior to reading this book I read, and really enjoyed, Dragonswood Dragonswood made me want to go back and pick up the first book in the Wilde Island series The two books are only loosely related this one takes place quite a while before the story in Dragonswood and focuses on different characters This was a beautifully written story that moves very slowly.Princess Rosalind Rosie to her friends is born with one finger that is a dragon claw Her mother goes to great lengths to hide Rosie s flaw in [...]

      It s back to the library for this book, even though I haven t finished it yet My interest has waned a bit since I started it, but I ll try to borrow it again when if I feel I m in the right mood for it It s not bad, it s just the wrong time I actually prefer buying books to borrowing because I have a strong tendency to put books I like down for a few months, or years, before resuming where I left off.Anyway, a few thoughts so far concerning the book I hated the queen She s obsessed with fulfill [...]

    7. Grace says:
      I m not one for high fantasy and epic tales any, but I found myself reading this book in a day It s easy reading and I found the author s tale absorbing, despite the fact that I feel that the blurb is slightly misleading The blurb states that Rosie is captured by the dragon, yadda yadda, but this event happens than halfway into the book I would characterize this story as of a coming of age story of a pampered, lonely princess fueled by her mother s ambition It s completely told from Rosie s po [...]

      This was a lovely YA fairytale the version I read in Australia was actually called Talon Princess Rosalind, of Wilde Island, was the subject of a prophecy many generations before her birth She would restore the glory of Wilde Island, and end a war However, the Princess was born with a dragon s claw instead of a ring finger on one of her hands, and wears gloves at all times to hide this terrible flaw However, when a dragon carries her off, the claw is the least of her worries.Dragon s Keep is a b [...]

      This was a beautifully written tale about a young princess Rosalinde who was believed to be the 21st queen on Wild Island fulfilling a prophecy by Merlin, returning the island to its former glory.Being born with a dragon claw however means that this princess life is filled with secrecy, and a mother hell bent on keeping the secret a secret.Most people having seen the claw wind up deadWilde Island also plagued by the dragons, people constantly being stolen away and eaten Hordes of men going to Dr [...]

    10. Small Review says:
      3.5 starsThis is one of those books where the payoff is good, but the journey is only so so I m glad I read this book I like the story very much and the author did a great job in capturing the feel of an Arthurian tragedy but the actual reading process was a little difficult for me.I like fast paced books, and this was not a fast paced book at all There is very little edge of your seat action, with the plot instead unfurling slowly across Rosalind s life For people who don t mind a slower paced [...]

      I had originally picked it up Dragon s Keep because it has to do with dragons and I LOVE dragons.It s set in the old days, with kings and castles and whatnot The time period isn t really my bag to begin with, but I thought I would give it a chance anyway.I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised Carey weaves a really interesting story It seemed like a fairy tale This book tells the tale of the princess Rosalind that was born with a dragon claw instead of her left ring finger This is a concer [...]

      I will be the first to say that I am not into the fantasy books, but this one was very enjoyable I might even say that I will probably read a lot fantasy because of it Rosalind is a Pendragon Queen but there is only one problem she has a dragon s claw where her left ring finger should be No one but her mother the Queen knows, and incidentally anyone who sees it meets an untimely death Rosalind is both ashamed and fascinated by her deformity It will impede her becoming a queen in the eyes of her [...]

      Originally posted to A Bookworm s Confessions When I was reading this I kept getting mixed feelings I honestly didn t know why I kept reading it but I did and in the end I found myself really liking it It s one of those stories that makes you think even after you ve finished, wanting to continue on with the characters even though it seems like everything is resolved in the end I think why it has so many bad reviews is the writing It s not well written sometimes However, I really enjoyed the over [...]

    14. Hayley says:
      I picked this up because the premise seemed cool a princess cursed with a dragon part and just as I suspected, the talon was a sort of metaphor for her sexuality and feminine mystery It was kind of reminiscent of Nathaniel Hawthorne s The Birthmark in some respects.But there I d have to say that the coolness ends The villain, Sir Magnus, is a generically priestly advisor, who smacks of largely of a eunuch He s fat, and wears gloves like a queen once again, ambiguous gender is coupled with evilne [...]

      So cheesy I read this because it was unanimously chosen by the teens in my book group It is about dragons and far far away places where they say things like whilst and abide my time drinking mead The princess is cursed with a dragon claw b c her mom is possibly crazy and a heroin addict poppy potion and she has to reunite the kingdom The main character is the dimmest girl on the planet and while sort of perky, pales in comparison to say, Coraline I will be interested in what the group thinks of [...]

      Personal Response I think this book was good, because at some points I could not predict what would happen I really liked the dragon and how he saved his eggs I was not expecting the dragon to come back and kidnap the princess The only thing I did not like was the long introduction about just the little events in each character s life It took a while before the dragon actually came into the book for than just eating people Overall this book was pretty good.Plot SummaryThe book Dragons Keep was [...]

      So, it seems I have a somewhat unpopular opinion when it comes to this book It didn t take me long to develop a negative opinion of Dragon s Keep Within the first 50 pages I was thinking about DNFing it But I stuck with it, and I remained unimpressed.The premise is that Princess Rosalind is the subject of a prophecy Six hundred years before, the great Merlin predicted that the twenty first queen of Wilde Island, a descendant of King Arthur s exiled and forgotten sister, Evaine, would stop the wa [...]

      A very, very long time ago, Merlin made a prophecy about a future princess of Wilde Island It would take roughly 600 years to come true, but this future heir would put an end to a deadly war and restore honor to the Pendragon name Princess Rosalind knows that she is the princess mentioned in the prophecy her mother has made every decision with this prophecy in mind All in all, Rosalind is a fairly typical princess she is fair and pretty, well educated and well mannered All that s left is to find [...]

      Rosaline was born with a dragon s claw on her left hand in place of her ring finger All her life she s worn gloves to keep it hidden Despite Rosaline s deformity, her mother is convinced she s the one who will fulfill Merlin s prophecy of peace and restoration But not all the healers in the kingdom can help against this ailment, especially when Rosaline can t tell them what it is Then the dragons come, and Rosaline goes from pampered princess to dragon servant The dragons see her claw as the onl [...]

    24. Cory Dorn says:
      I enjoyed this book because it starts in a place I have always wanted to visit, which is Europe In this book it starts on Wilde island, which is in Europe somewhere The time was 1145 A.D The story begins 600 s year ago when Merlin writes a prophecy of a princess name Rosalind The story is told in first person point of view by Rosalind Rosalind has a lot of ups and downs through out this whole book, because of the curse that she tries to hide Rosalind s curse is she has one dragon claw as a finge [...]

      Since it s been a while published 2007 , I decided to reread this before I read Dragonswood This book was just as wonderful the second time and the cover is still one of the best ever Far superior to the one on Dragonswood I don t like the current trend in cover design They are all starting to look the same.Although I love the phenomenon of books published by young authors, when I read this book, I am reminded of the fullness and depth of a story told by an accomplished and confident author Yes, [...]

    26. Everyminute says:
      Let s start with the prophecy 600 years ago as you are very well informed, the famous and most benevolent wizard Merlin had predicted that a curse will befall Queen Evaine s descendants Particularly the 21st queen Aaahh our beloved Rosalind So pure like a rose her mother had said yet she bore the curse The ugly, witchcraft of her ring finger All serpent like and claws not as dainty as her pink fleshy fat fingers Her mother was just awful because she so longed for the perfect child that she never [...]

    27. Paige Y. says:
      Rosalind, princess of Wilde Island, is almost perfectly beautiful She has a lovely face and will have a beautiful shape when she is a woman But she is not perfect The ring finger of her left hand the finger on which she should wear her wedding ring is not a finger at all but a claw, a dragon s claw Nobody but Rosalind and her mother are aware of her deformity she always wears golden gloves to hide it If anyone finds out, she will no longer be a princess will perhaps be thought of as a witch and [...]

      Dragon s Keep by Janet Lee Carey was fairly enjoyable and very much to my liking The plot is based around a young girl, Rosalind, who was born with a dragon s claw There is also a prophecy made six hundred years prior by Merlin who had foreseen the end of a war with dragons fire and broken sword, the war ends with a gifted claw Rosalind also decides that in order to keep her people safe, she needed to go live with the dragons that gifted her claw and for two years she stayed On the second year t [...]

      Above us the sky was pearled with small white clouds The newly risen sun beamed over the earth, and as I looked to the water, it seemed the magic was not gone but dozing like a sleepy child that would one day leap up, as a tot does from her slumber, and greet the world again Never in all my life have I read such a captivating dragon story Dragon lore is a subject I cherish dearly and Janet Lee Carey has woven a tale that has inspired my own writings as well as breathed life into the bone structu [...]

    30. Brandy says:
      The first third of the book is all set up Rosalind is lonely, her mother prevents her from making friends for fear of exposing Rosalind s dragon claw finger, their island is plagued by a dragon who carries off half their army one man at a time After 100 pages, we re still getting the story of Rosalind s first friend ever and how great it is and her crushes and bravery and blah blah blah the actual story, the Rosalind is carried off by a dragon part, doesn t start until the second third of the bo [...]
