Book Review

Dragon’s bait by Vivan Vande Velde

This has got to be one of my favorite books from the YA period in my life. Alys is offered up as a sacrifice. To the dragon in the mountains by her town people, people who turned their back on her and her father. Betrayed by her father’s friend she is furious, so she challenges the dragon, which makes him curious enough not to eat her.

And this leads to an amazing book, considering it’s small Vivan packed a lot of action into the book, and lessons of course into the book. It’s always a fun fast read and who wouldn’t love having a pet dragon that would do anything for you??  It’s set in the middle ages (if dragons really existed then) including the appearance of an Inquisitor who leads the charge against the dragon, and all of ‘those people’.

If you have children this is a pretty good book for them to check out, and even a quick afternoon read for yourself.
