Dragonscale Leggings by Freya Pickard

A YA Fantasy story about a Teenage girl who finds herself in a strange land with Knights and Dragons.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect of this book especially when i saw the front cover. I did wonder what the potatoe peeler had to do with dragons and Knights. The story itself unfolds slowly with a quirky sense of humour, the mix of the olde worldie way of life and language and the modern viewpoint of the trapped girl is a good combination. I found the ending a bit flimsy though. Almost as if the Author had run out of ideas so ended it with the first thing she thought of.

Not my favourite book including dragons, but still an amusing read.

My rating:- 3/5
