Searching for Dragons por Patricia C. Wrede (1991)

  1. 00
    The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle por Deva Fagan (dylanesque)
    dylanesque: Searching for Dragons and the Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle share an irreverent, light-hearted tone, a fun duo of interesting main characters, and a rich magical world (although I would say this is a stronger element in the Misadventures).

The Society of Wizards are stirring up trouble again in this second book of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. This time, they are trying to start a war between the King of the Enchanted Forest, (Mendanbar) and the King of the Dragons (Kazul), by burning a section of his forest, leaving dragon scales as evidence. Mendanbar decides a state visit to King Kazul is long overdue and sets out for such a visit, only to find a distraught Princess Cimorene, who is concerned that Kazul has disappeared and not sent word. Together, they set out on a quest to find and rescue Kazul. The banter between Mendanbar and Cimorene is wonderful, Morwen and Telemain were very helpful along the way, and some of their challenges were worrying, including magic carpets, meddling giants, and Jack the peddler. I liked this book much better than the first one in this series. ( )

Continuing in the same style of a fairy tale that turns fairy tale tropes on their head, Searching for Dragons is the second book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. This sequel does exactly what I was hoping for. It takes what we already know of the Enchanted Forest and builds upon it. Only this time the story is told entirely from Mendanbar's point of view.

Dead zones have started appearing in the Enchanted Forrest and Kazul, King of the Dragons, has gone missing. Mendanbar, King of the Enchanted Forest, and Cimorene are determined to figure out what's going on.

Mendanbar is a decent protagonist. He's young and feeling a tad overwhelmed with running a kingdom so jumps at the chance to start his investigation if only so he can relax a little from his other kingly duties. The journey Mendanbar and Cimorene go on is rather convoluted and they meet some interesting characters along the way. I found it funny how they pointed out common sense solutions to some typical fairy tale problems, like the giant who is fed up with "Jacks" always stealing from him on a regular schedule.

"They always do the same thing - come in, ask for a meal, hide, and then run off with a harp or a bag full of money the minute I fall asleep," Dobbilan said. "And they're always named Jack. Always. We've lived in this castle for twenty years, and every three months, regular as clockwork, one of those boys shows up, and there's never been a Tom, Dick, or Harry among 'em. Just Jacks. The English have no imagination."

Their solution to his problem is quite practical. Mendenbar and Cimorene end up working well together.

While just as charming and fun as Dealing with Dragons, I found myself missing Cimorene as the main pov character. This, of course, sets a trend. I wonder whose point of view the third book will be from. ( )

While this is still a great book in my favorite children's fantasy series (of all time), it's definitely a step-down for me from the first one. This is largely because I find King Mendanbar pretty bland, especially compared to Cimorene. He seems reverse-engineered to be somebody who could really benefit from having a Cimorene in his life--disorganized and bad at delegating--more than he seems like an actual character. I don't know what Cimorene gets out of this relationship beyond the fact that he doesn't like princesses and she's Not Like Other Princesses so he appreciates her oddities more than any other guy she's ever met. I guess that's enough. We don't really get to see him from her perspective. And the quest feels pretty lowkey because Mendanbar doesn't know Kazul and therefore doesn't have any sort of emotional reason to want to save her beyond it being wrong that she was kidnapped and potentially problematic for his kingdom if she's killed by wizards. However this book does introduce Telemain and I love him. What a tool. He's also disorganized to Morwen's severe practicality (spoilers I guess but come on) but it's more because literally everything magical in the world is the most fascinating thing he's ever seen and he lives near the most magical place in the universe. Bless him. ( )

I loved this book and did not want to put it down! It is a fantastic book filled with magic and a bit of romance thrown in. This book has a bunch of really interesting and fun characters that create humor and cause this book to be a really fun and enjoyable read. ( )
