Jesse, Daisy, and their dragon Emmy mare back in this new book in the Dragon Keepers series. Emmy has a hard time remembering to be an English sheepdog. A disguise is necessary to protect her from the evil St. George. Speaking of, he's keeping a low profile. Jesse and Daisy haven't seen him in days. They decided to check up on him. He's apparently abandoned his ruse as a college professor. Discovering what St. George is up to leads the Dragon Keepers and their dragon on an adventure. They meet dryads and hobgoblins and discover their neighbor is magic. Can they stop St. George from completing whatever dastardly deed he has planned and keep Emmy safe?
What I thought: A fast paced magical read. I continue to enjoy the characters Klimo has created. I especially like the hobgoblin queen and her rhymes. (Reminds me of the dwarfs and their mirrors in 10th Kingdom). I can't wait to see what the next book has in store for Jesse, Daisy, and Emmy.
