The Runaway Dragon by Kate Coombs

The book The Runaway Dragon by Kate Coombs is a mixture of romance, courage, mystery, friendship, and comedy. In Kate's first book, The Runaway Princess, the main character, Meg, runs away when her parents lock her up in a tower to attract suitors. While Meg is away and trying to have some fun for once in her life, she finds adventure on the same path as a dragon named Laddy, her old friends, and she meets some new friends along the way. Now Meg is back with a grown-up Laddy and the horror of her life; Laddy has escaped! She and her friends must find Laddy and save each other's necks; all the while defeating the evils of the land. Can Meg complete her quest and be with her love, or will she come to an end as well?

This book was the perfect sequel to its starter. In the first book there wasn't a ton of action or anything to really grab your mind, but now in the second book, you don't even want to set down the book for a second!The only weakness I felt this book had was how it ended. It left you hanging on the edge of your seat, hoping for more to happen. So by this observation, I can only hope and wish for there to be a third book coming to complete the first wonderous two. I learned from reading this book that things aren't always as they may seem, and that you just have to keep thinking(and being) optimistic to acheive the greatest. I have to admit its not the best book in the world because compared to the Talking To Dragons series, this is nothing; even though it is a good comedy/action book that all ages can enjoy.
