Ari should have been born a boy... the secrets of Dragon Summoning would have passed to her and to her son, down the generations, but she was not and now war looms once more on the horizon and the dragons are needed. Ari and her grandfather must find a way to circumvent the ancient rules in order to save thousands of lives.

The Last Dragon Summoner, by Sherryl Jordan (author of the brilliant young adult book 'Rocco'), is a short and simple tale of a girl who wishes she was something she is not, and learns to embrace the power of what she is. It was possibly a little too short and simple for me, there were no real plot twists and an older reader could see the 'solutions' about three chapters before the characters figured them out, but for young readers just starting out in fantasy, this is a safe and friendly read.

It is rare to find decent female protagonists in the fantasy genre in general and even more so in children's fantasy, so a big thumbs up to Jordan for her contribution!
