Aventurine is such a great character – she’s stubborn, feisty and wholly enjoyable. But she’s also a hard worker and a good friend. The way she talks herself into Marina’s kitchen is so funny to read. It’s really heartwarming to watch her settle into human life and realise that there is nothing wrong with her for being exactly who she is. On a side note, I really love gem names for dragons (and princesses)!
The pace is fast, and the writing is witty. Aventurine adjusting to human customs is cause for much snarky fun, and there’s a nice slice-of-life feel to the chocolate house portion in the middle of the book, which stops the story from ever dragging. The conclusion is very satisfying, but I’d happily just read books upon books about Aventurine learning to make chocolate perfectly. You can almost taste the spices she adds and the richness of the chocolate. I love the idea that dragon like their hot chocolate with a kick of chilli pepper!
A great MG book that ticks all my boxes – dragons, female friendship, found family, snark, and tasty atmosphere!
With a vibrant, beautiful cover, this is a delicious feast of a book. A fast pace, witty fantasy with a perfect combination of dragons, friendship, betrayal, deception and chocolates. A wildly delicious atmospheric book, brilliantly written, that left me with a deep craving of chocolates and to get a pet dragon. A stupendous 5⭐️ Read, highly recommended.
But what is that intoxicating smell? Chocolate… She quickly discovers this is no ordinary human, and it's no ordinary chocolate. Aventurine finds herself transformed into a puny human - wingless, clawless and with stumpy little teeth - and has to learn how to adapt to her new form. The one thing she does know is that she's found her passion; chocolate! And she must have more.
Once in Drachenburg, Aventurine seeks out an apprenticeship in a chocolate house, and must learn to trust other people as well as herself. She needs to find a way of staying true to her dragon heart, while adapting to life as a human, with her new family of human friends.
Bursting with characters that pull you into their world, this is a beautifully crafted, page turning fantasy, full of adventure and suspense. It's as warming to the soul as a hot chocolate on a cold winter’s night.
Great for fans of How to Train Your Dragon, Eva Ibbotsen, fantasy, adventure and chocolate.
We've not been disappointed. It's a great story with a good use of vocabulary and has kept us wanting more.
I would definitely recommend this book.
