Synopsis: Princess Madeline is ready to celebrate. With the foundation of her future in place, it seems nothing can hurt her. Then the return of a mysterious green dragon threatens her kingdom and king. Will this challenge prove to be too much for Princess Madeline and Prince Braden, or will they find the answers they seek hidden in cryptic messages from the past? 

     Can Madeline save her kingdom from the dragon, or is the real danger something else? 

     My Review: The Dragon and Princess Madeline is the final book to The Princess Madeline trilogy. The story picks up where The Battle for Princess Madeline has ended. Princess Madeline is ready to be queen of a new kingdom and marry her knight, Daniel. However, the green dragon has appeared that threatens to destroy everything that Madeline holds dear. However, clues from the past may give her a clue as to how to beat the dragon. Can Madeline save her kingdom from the dragon before it is too late?

     Madeline has really grown throughout the course of the three books. I like how she has grown to be very confident and self-assured. She is willing to take charge and be a queen. I also like how she is ready to make her own decisions. Madeline is also very observant. She looks for clues to solve the situation with the dragon. Overall, Madeline has become a leader. She makes very wise decisions, and people follow her reasoning. Therefore, she gets people around her to listen to her advice. Thus, I believe that she will make a good queen.

Overall, this story is about friendship, love, and family. The message of the story is to be yourself and to follow your heart. I  found this story to be very fast-paced, and I felt that all the loose ends were tied together neatly. My only complaint is that aside from Princess Madeline, there was not much development with the side characters, including her love interest, Daniel. They just seemed to be there. Still, I found this trilogy to be very light, charming, and enjoyable. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fierce heroines and fantasy books about dragons.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post Author: Allison Pataki Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher: Ballantine Release Date: February 15, 2022 Pages: 381 Source: Netgalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: Mrs. Post, the President and First Lady are here to see you. . . . So begins another average evening for Marjorie Merriweather Post. Presidents have come and gone, but she has hosted them all. Growing up in the modest farmlands of Battle Creek, Michigan, Marjorie was inspired by a few simple rules: always think for yourself, never take success for granted, and work hard—even when deemed American royalty, even while covered in imperial diamonds. Marjorie had an insatiable drive to live and love and to give more than she got. From crawling through Moscow warehouses to rescue the Tsar’s treasures to outrunning the Nazis in London, from serving the homeless of the Great Depression to entertaining Roosevelts, Kennedys, and Hollywood’s biggest stars, Marjorie Merriweath
