Read full description of the books Flight of the Dragon Kyn:After reading the first books, I had really high hopes for this sequel/prequel. Ms. Fletcher did not let me down! I was enthralled. This book held my attention even more than Dragon's Milk. Susan Fletcher strings her tale so masterfully!
I was so happy that Ms. Fletcher was once more able to create such a strong heroine that is so relatable. I loved Kara! She is strong in her own way and continues to make her own path throughout the book. Kara can summon birds, so King Orrik assumes that she can also summon dragons seeing as birds and dragons are akin. Kara does not believe she can, but she is basically forced to leave her home (where she was a misfit) and leave with a entourage of warriors to see the king at the castle (where she is also a misfit). Kara finds friends in Rath, Myrra and Corwyn. Throughout the book, we are witness to the strong ties that Fletcher has developed between these characters.
Besides her previously listed friends, Kara also has Skava, her gyrfalcon. Skava and Kara share a special bond that I see similar to the bonded in Suzanne Collins Underland Chronicles. Skava and Kara take care of each other and their friendship is so deep, I almost forgot that Skava is only a falcon.
And of course, who can forget Kazan? Kazan is a falconer/shipbuilder that Kara meets early on in the story. He often offers to help her carry her belongings, which results in ridicule and jests from the older men. Throughout the story, the bond between Kara and Kazan really strengthens with each passing chapter. I always found myself wondering: "Where is Kazan?""Is Kazan in this chapter?""Is he gonna go after her?" As well as many other things along those lines.
This book left me responding out loud. "Wait...what?!?!" "No Way!!!" "Oh man...." "Ah!!! Moremoremore!!!"
If I have managed to leave it out somewhere, I will just say now: I really loved this book and after finishing it, I wanted to go right back to the beginning and start it all over again. This is one of my future re-reads, I just know it. Ms. Fletcher continues to wow me with her outstanding stories of Dragons & Strong Heroines. =)

Susan Fletcher is the author of a popular trilogy that includes the books Dragon's Milk, Flight of the Dragon Kyn, and Sign of the Dove, as well as of several other novels for young readers.
With a medieval setting inspired by pictures of the Welsh countryside from where Fletcher traces her roots, the dragon trilogy features Fletcher's imaginative, dragon-centered plots, which have won praise from reviewers and readers alike. Calling 1993's Flight of the Dragon Kyn "a joy to read," Booklist contributor Deborah Abbott added: "Fletcher pens some of the best yarns around."
Born in Pasadena, California, in 1951, Fletcher and her family moved to Ohio when she was seven years old. She had dreamed of being a writer ever since she entered the third grade. "Back then my name was Susan Clemens," she once explained. "One day my teacher told us about a famous author named Mark Twain, whose real name was Samuel Clemens, whose daughter's name was Susan. It was fate, I thought. I decided not to become the daughter of a famous author (which is impossible to arrange), but to become a famous author myself (which is difficult enough)."
Returning to California in sixth grade, Fletcher graduated from high school in 1969, having spent her senior year as fiction editor of her school's literary magazine. She enrolled at the University of California at Santa Barbara and earned her bachelor's degree in English. She then moved to Michigan, where she earned her master's degree in English from the University of Michigan. Moving again to Colorado, Fletcher got a job with a local advertising agency and met her soon-to-be husband, Jerry; they were married in June of 1977. Moving again, this time to Minneapolis, Minnesota, she put her writing talent to work creating copy for radio advertisements, which she enjoyed and was good at. When her husband relocated to Portland, Oregon, Fletcher planned to look for a similar position, but those plans changed when she discovered that she and her husband would soon be having a child. Magazine writing became her new focus--it was something Fletcher could do from home--and from there it was a short step to becoming a children's book writer.
Fletcher's first novel for young readers, 1988's The Haunting Possibility, was inspired by Oregon's Lake Oswego area and the practice of draining the lake each winter to allow dock repairs to be made. Learning the nuances of characterization and plotting as she went, Fletcher completed the manuscript and sent it to almost twenty publishers before it was accepted. She quickly involved herself in a local group of children's writers, meeting several editors and gaining constructive criticism of her work in the process.
