Who Wrote It?

Liz Flanagan writes for children and young adults. She teaches creative writing, and lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, with her husband and two daughters. She used to be Centre Director at the Ted Hughes Arvon Centre, and previously worked in children's book publishing.

What's It About?

On the island of Arcosi, dragons and their riders used to rule the skies. But now they are only legends, found in bedtime stories, on beautiful murals and ancient jewellery. Then servant girl Milla witnesses a murder and finds herself caring for the last four dragon eggs. Forced to keep them secret amidst the growing tensions in the city, she begins to fear that the island’s ruler, Duke Olvar, isn’t all that he seems. But how can Milla and her friends keep the eggs safe when it means endangering everything she’s ever loved? Fiery friendships, forgotten family and the struggle for power collide as Milla’s fight to save the dragons leads her to discover her own hidden past.

Fact File

‘I’ve always loved bookshops, ever since I was a book-obsessed child of nine or so. Once my mum had to do holiday cover for her friend’s bookshop – this was my idea of absolute heaven. I worked my way through the children’s shelves, sitting in a chair in the corner.’

Liz had her YA debut with Eden Summer published in 2016.

Daren from Raynville Primary School:

I liked the start, it was really interesting. It was great, all about the adventures were amazing and just perfect. This is one of my favorite and also the longest book I have ever read.

Daren gave Dragon Daughter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy.

Mehrin from Coop Academy Oakwood:

Dragon's Daughter is a book about mystery,thriller and comedy. It made me laugh at times but moments were also extremely emotional. I definitely recommend this book. My favourite character is Duke Olvar because he seems evil but can be sweet when he wants to.

Mehrin gave Dragon Daughter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy.

Elspeth from Westgate Primary School:

I absolutely loved this book. The way that it’s written makes you want to read on and on. It always had me guessing what would happen next, but never gave it away; it has been cleverly woven together.Despite the fact I have already read it I would defiantly get it.
