A winner of the Mark Twain Award, Janet Lee Carey pens a richly imagined tale of princesses and dragons.

On Wilde Island, Rosalind and her mother live their lives in exile, awaiting the time they can reclaim their rightful place on the throne. And there is reason to hope - a 600-year-old prophesy has decreed that they will do just that. But little do they know that their destinies hinge on Rosalind's amazing, shameful secret: beneath her gold gloves, the fourth finger of her left hand is in truth a dragon's claw.

    " When the queen cannot conceive, she desperately turns to a dark witch for help and gives birth to a girl. Princess Rosalind, who has been prophecied by the great wizard Merlin, to end a war and unite two species, is beautiful except for the dragon claw her mother allows no one to see. A dark and mesmerizing tale with a somewhat hurried but satisfying ending, the author weaves a complete world that will captivate true fantasy readers. "

    " This was an excellent read. I just pulled it offthe library shelf because the cover looked interesting. Glad that I did. The main take-away for me from this book was Princess Rosalind's triumph. Her mother's one track mind to fulfill what she thought Rosalind's life should be was relentless. However, Rosalind comes into her own to decide what she wanted with an unexpected twist. If you had the choice, would you choose duty over your hearts desire? Given the time period in whch the story is written, and even though Rosalind is a Princess, her love and compassion shines through. The love story aspect was very subtle, yet intense. Janet Lee Carey's writing transported me into this medieval fantasy wholly and truly. I too, wanted to feel the wind in my hair soaring on the dragon's back. The most important lesson I gleaned from this reading is simply this: when we let others tell us what is acceptable or not, we loose the choice of who we truly are. In this coming of age story, Rosalind's apparent curse turns out to be her gift, one she finally embraces. Don't ever be afraid to be who you truly are. Why live life as people see you instead of who you see yourself to be? "

    " This book is unusual for me because it fits into the YA category and usually I tend to read books in youth and adult. Not on purpose, that's just what happens. Anyway, this was a fairly original story. The second half was a little slow. I did enjoy the story, but would probably not read it again. I kept wondering where the author was going with the storyline. "

    " This book really wrapped me in its world! When I was forced out, I wanted to dive back in right away! "
