Bargain Ebooks Today Only: Jessica Day George

Dragon Slippers and Dragon Flight and Dragon Spear by Jessica Day George are each priced at $1.99 in ebook format for the Kindle Daily Deal on Amazon today only. I already owned the first one but ordered the second two myself.

This trilogy marks George's publishing debut and she has gone on to write several fairy tale inspired novels, including the upcoming Princess of the Silver Woods (Twelve Dancing Princesses), which will be released this December in the US.

Book description for Dragon Slippers:

DRAGON SLIPPERS, the first of three enchanting DRAGON books from Jessica Day George!

For Creel's continuing adventures, look for DRAGON FLIGHT and DRAGON SPEAR.

Poor Creel. She can't believe her aunt wants to sacrifice her to the local dragon. It's a ploy to lure a heroic knight so that he will fight the dragon, marry Creel out of chivalrous obligation, and lift the entire family out of poverty. Creel isn't worried. After all, nobody has seen a dragon in centuries.

But when the beast actually appears, Creel not only bargains with him for her life, she also ends up with a rare bit of treasure from his hoard, not gold or jewels, but a pair of simple blue slippers-or so she thinks. It's not until later that Creel learns a shocking truth: She possesses not just any pair of shoes, but ones that could be used to save her kingdom, which is on the verge of war, or destroy it.

Jessica Day George makes a memorable debut in this enchanting tale of dragons, betrayals, and the power of friendship.
