This story started slow and introduced the two main characters Prince Marcus, second in line to the throne of Gorebreath and Gracie Gillypot, a Trueheart. These two also have help from two smaller characters like Gubble, a domesticated troll and Marlon, a bat. These people find a dragon's egg and face many troubles both while looking for it and after they find it. They even find help along the way from Queen Bluebell who returns Gubble after he runs off. At the end of the story they bring the egg back to the dragons just in time to see it hatch.
I found this book to be a little slow. It was kind of interesting when they introduced the dragons and the legend that comes with them. It was very in depth but the story never quite interested me and it was a little easy to predict. Since it was so predictable it never had any suspense so I found it a little boring. If you are into the Five Kingdoms series or like mystery, there is a good chance you will like this book.
