Read The Princess of Trelian (Trelian, #2) Online Free - The hundred-year war with Kragnir is over, and Meg will soon be named the princess-heir of Trelian. But her connection to her dragon, Jakl, is making her parents’ subjects uneasy. Will they ever accept this dragon princess as their future queen? It doesn’t help that Meg is suffering horrible nightmares and sudden, uncontrollable rages—and with the link joining them, Jakl is feeling the rages, too. Meg is desperate to talk to Calen, to see if he can help her figure out what is happening and how to stop it before she or her dragon does something terrible…
Meanwhile, Calen is having troubles of his own. He’s far away, gone off with Mage Serek to receive his first true mage’s mark. But his marking ceremony is disrupted by a mysterious magical attack, and ominous prophecies predict a terrifying new danger. The Magistratum’s greatest enemy may soon reappear—and the other mages believe that Calen himself may have a hand in his return!

I bought this the day it came out. For a while, since I had a big 'ol stack of library books to get through, plus a massive deadline on a personal project, I tried to put off reading this, even though I was ecstatic about returning to Meg and Calen's world.
I did not even last a week before throwi...

Actual rating: 3.5 stars.
I've been waiting for a sequel to The Dragon of Trelian since 2009. And The Princess of Trelian is an excellent one, keeping all of the elements I loved from the first novel but developing the characters and conflicts that propel the trilogy's story arc. This is a sadly...

I did not like this one as much as "The Dragon of Trelian". There was a little too much time spent on Princess Meg's struggle with her constant anger without her suspecting it had external causes besides her link to the dragon. (I found it vaguely insulting that no one questioned her erratic beha...

Strong sequel to the Dragon of Trelian. Great baddies, lots of action, and a thoughtfully developing relationship between Calen and Meg. This will keep you glued to the pages, just as the first one did. Can't wait to read the Mage of Trelian when it comes back to the public library.

If it weren't for the interesting magic or Jakl the dragon, I'm not sure if I could have made it through this book. All right, to be fair, I might have a better review to write if I actually had the 3rd book in the series in my hands to help resolve the messy cliff-hanger.
This book picks up prett...

I went to the recent ALA Mid-Winter event and picked up quite a few ARCs. The one that I was most excited to start reading was this one. Why...you might ask? Because I read The Dragon of Trelian back in 2009 and absolutely loved it. Of course I was gleefully surprise that a sequel was coming this...

Upon my second re-reading, I think I like this one better than the first. Unfortunately, my two darlings were separated for a good chunk of the book, but I felt like the writing was better, as well as the pacing, though the...

Sometimes there's a comfort in seeing familiar tropes done well, which is how I feel about this series.
Nothing groundbreaking here: evil wizards, impetuous apprentices in magic, brave princesses, telepathic bonds with dragons.
However, all the characters are well-realized in a way that takes them...

Reader thoughts: I'm a little stuck on this one. How do I rate it? I wanted to read it when I wasn't, but I wanted to skim when I was. I guess it could have been shorter, but the pace was fine. (More thoughts on this later.)
I liked the different levels of conflict, but I thought there could ha...
