  1. This series is absolutely one of the fantasy genre s treasures It s wonderfully light hearted and humorous the author revels in puncturing any number of fairy tale conventions Princess Cine, for instance, isn t kidnapped and enslaved by a dragon she voluntarily becomes housekeeper for the Dragon King to escape an arranged marriage And the draconian king is female dragons use that title for monarchs of either gender to keep things simple But though her main characters often don t do the conventio [...]


  2. Only just recently, it has come to my attention that the final book in this series was actually written FIRST THIS BLEW MY MIND The final book ties everything together so very neatlyGoodness gracious my perception of the world is crumbling around my widdle ears OK so, these books are all really good aside from the whole my not being aware of the chronology of the publication and whatnot They re all dragony and delicious And also, it s like one giant fairy tale of awesome Also, there are some ver [...]


  3. This is some of the best young adult fantasy out there, especially if you like some humor in your fantasy In the first book, the main character gets fed up with her life as a princess When she tries to learn to fence, she s told it s unladylike, so she has to stop When she tries to coook, she s told it s unladylike, so she has to stop So, we begin the story with the main character running away to find a dragon to live with She does find one, and she spends much of the book making cherries jubile [...]


  4. I recently finished reading these books with my ten year old daughter I read them years ago, so I didn t remember much plot, just that they are fun fantasy And they are light and witty, funny, creative, and strong female characters I didn t like the last book as well It didn t seem as well written and I missed Cine as a main character But it was needed to finish the story It was fun to enjoy the books together We no longer have much of an oral tradition in our society, so it s easy to forget the [...]


  5. This is a series for people who like fantasy with a dash of humor and a strong female heroine who is perfectly willing to tell the slightly stupid handsome prince he can kindly throw himself off a cliff Add some dragons, a few wicked wizard, one very forward thinking witch, a floating blue donkey with a 6 foot wing span, and an entire kindgom made of magical threads and you might begin to understand the stories Wrede has a way of pulling in a few old fairy tale favorites while forging a story co [...]


  6. I never read Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings, or the Chronicles of Narnia, I read The Enchanted Forest Chronicles And to this day I haven t been able to figure out why these adventure stories aren t films already Very fun.


  7. So I was waiting for my latest book club s choice to arrive in the mail, and knowing that it was a serious choice this month, I decided to relive some young adult books that used to be great favorites of mine I own a very ratty hardcover copy of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, but recently purchased the newly released paperbacks in a box set Perfect time to read them These vary in how much I like them The first one I ve read than the rest, and do like a lot It features a feisty princess named [...]


  8. Okay, time for a Nostalgia Review Recently somewhere on the depths of the internet I came across a list of badass women of fantasy or something like that, and Cine from this series was on there And I was like, I remember her She was awesome And I was possessed by a sudden desire to reread these books because I hate doing things that I need to do So that s what I did Each book is only about 100 200 pages long, and it took me around 3 hours to read each one Unsurprising, given the target audience [...]


  9. I loved these books in grade school and I love them still The author does a great job of making fun of what is considered a typical fairytale Princesses take classes on how to scream correctly when a dragon carries them off knights are constantly trying to find a damsel in distress to rescue even if they don t wish to be.Dealing with DragonsPrincess Cine of the kingdom of Linderwall decides that being a princess is too boring and confining, leaves home to work for the dragon Kazul, and discovers [...]


  10. I rediscovered the first volume, Dealing with Dragons, which I really enjoyed when I was a kid, and after a short online search, found out it was part of a series and ordered the whole box off .After having read through the latter three books in one week now, I am ready to give my verdict At 23, I am probably a little too old for this, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the books and plan on reading them to my future children The wacky and whimsical wit paired with the believable characters, especia [...]


  11. I added this box to my list, to have a mark of the whole set But I was thinking, just recently, that it is time to reread the whole thing.I think the girls have all of them on their shelves, but I d better check.


  12. i loved these books you don t have to read the first one to understand the second or third or fourth one they are hilarious books with a lot of magic in them they aren t that serious, but that is what makes them fun to read



  13. These are fun to read I really like the central character in the first book She s the princess who doesn t want to get married LOVE that This is a nice modern fairy tale series.


  14. I read these books in junior high and I remember really loving them I think they really opened me up to my love for fantasy novels.


  15. The Enchanted Forest Chronicles consist, in chronological but not publishing order, of Dealing with Dragons, Searching for Dragons, Calling on Dragons and Talking to Dragons Talking to Dragons was written first, Dealing with Dragons was written as a prequel, and the other two books were written in sequence to fill in the gap between the two I m treating them as a unit, since I purchased them as an ebook omnibus and basically read them as one.The Chronicles take place in a fairy tale world that g [...]


  16. Exactly what I was looking for in a book right now These four books were simple, yet joyful I can t believe I didn t discover these when I was younger, I know my teenage self would have read them over and over Wrede somehow manages to walk the line of the classic fairy tale, and turn it into something new, even while following all the comfortable old rules and story lines The portrayal of the quirks and egos of cats is perhaps one of my favorites I have ever read, and as a worshiper of the felin [...]


  17. I just love this series Patricia has such an imaginative way of giving shape to magic Fire magic, Enchanted Forest magic, dragon magic, and wizard magic each with their own presence I also love how each book in the four part series is written from the perspective of a different person I have series that I m working on where I might actually try the same approachPatricia s other books on magic Mairelon the Magician and The Magician s Ward, respectively have an even different shape to its magic Th [...]


  18. This is an omnibus containing all 4 of the dragon stories Dealing With Dragons Cine runs away because she is bored with with the sort of things a princess is expected to learn, and her parents stop her from learning the interesting things like magic and fencing and cooking Also she doesn t want to marry the boring prince selected for her She finds herself in a group of dragons and is adopted by Kazul, becoming the dragon s princess voluntarily She and Kazul get along very well, but the various k [...]


  19. This book is the kind of book I wish I could go back and hand to my nine year old self so she could grow up loving it It has been instantly added to my list of all time favorite books because it is FANTASTIC The characters are extremely likable and practical and just awesome It makes you root for everyone except the bad guys and you always want them to fail I also love how a lot of the worldbuilding is based on classic fairytale tropes and brief descriptions Cine is the princess we all need in o [...]


  20. Great series featuring an independent and fun heroine, that I first read when I was 12 An easy re read now, but still fun and brought back memories nice to know it s still out there as a book featuring a female heroine who will accept help from others but doesn t need rescuing the other characters are all unique and funny, too.


  21. These books made my childhood I loved them And there is no doubt that they had an influence on me, especially by giving me a strong female role model I didn t want to be a princess I wanted to be a princess that didn t want to be a princess, and I wanted to go off on amazing adventures I highly recommend them to middle grade readers And older ones too I should reread these


  22. I found my old friendI originally read Dealing With Dragons when I was in 4th or 5th grade, and it has always been one of my favorites When I found out that not only was it part of a series, but that it was available as a boxed set, I had to read it immediately This set will always hold a special place in my heart, and I look forward to reading it again many times.


  23. I wish the fourth book s protagonist had been a girl instead of a boy It would have made the whole thing just a fraction enjoyable Overall I appreciated the stories and the spunky female characters within them.


  24. Favorite stillI read this every couple of years and have since I first read the books as a child Still keeps me captivated as an adult I remember thinking as a young girl that here was finally a Princess I wouldn t mind idolizing.


  25. Great young adult collection with feisty powerful women turning the damsel in distress paradigm on its head.





  26. Fairy tales and high fantasy have their own tropes wizards, witches, princesses, dragons and princes coming to the rescue of damsels.But none of them will ever look quite the same after reading Patricia C Wrede s The Enchanted Forest Chronicles Dealing with Dragons Searching for Dragons Calling on Dragons Talking to Dragons, bringing together four charming little fantasy stories Wrede cleverly pokes fun at all the things you ve come to expect from princess tales, including the now cliched rebell [...]
