Comments Calling on Dragons

  • Iryna (Book and Sword)

    4.5/5stars This was my 4th time reading the series and it was just as good as the first 3 times. Also I was able to notice and focus on many things that I haven't before. I really like how each book focuses on different set of main characters - this way by the end of the series the reader gets to know everybody from different points of view.This will probably forever be my favorite middle grade series and I am very happy to say that I still enjoy them after so many re-reads, and even if I'm prob [...]

  • Kathryn

    Calling on Dragons, though it does give us great background information on witches in general and Morwen in particular, is by far the weakest entry in the series. My dislike, or perhaps I should say my lack of liking, for this book is primarily due to the character Killer, an enchanted bunny that Morwen finds in her garden. He's a hopping, talking MacGuffin; because a wizard was involved with his enchantment, Morwen takes him to the castle to consult with Mendanbar and Cimorene (who, incidentall [...]

    ►MY FEELINGS This book was very interesting from the beginning. I was very gripped by this book. For once I thought this book will be the best book in this series. BUT I think this book was very predictable for me after reading its previous books. Nevertheless, This was a very enjoyable and interesting read for me. I am satisfied that this book didn't hurt me like its second book did.Be Alert! Don't open any spoiler if you are looking farword to read this book or you don't want any revealation [...]

  • Ann

    I enjoyed "Calling on Dragons" but not nearly as much as the first two. Now, I wasn't able to read this nearly as quickly as I was the previous two, so I'm sure I lost a bit of the flow because I had to stop and start so much. But, I just felt the book plodded more than its predecessors, and that every time we got close to something interesting, the story would back off and resort to something funny, or take that climax moment and start explaining something that really didn't need to be explaine [...]

  • Clare Fitzgerald

    Calling on Dragons was possibly my favorite one of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles books when I was younger. It’s a little bit darker and a little bit weirder than the other ones, but this is offset by a heightened number of sassy talking animals. Calling on Dragons is told from the perspective of the witch Morwen, who has been previously established as totally awesome in the first two volumes. While it’s great to hear a story from Morwen’s perspective just because Morwen is awesome, the r [...]

  • Magrat Ajostiernos

    'Calling on dragons' no me ha gustado ni de lejos tanto como las dos primeras partes de la saga (mucha culpa la tiene el estúpido personaje de Killer ¬¬) pero aún así sigue siendo un libro infantil entrañable y divertido, además deja con ganas del cuarto y último volumen que parece que va a ser bastante diferente a los anteriores :)

  • MrsJoseph

    3 StarsTamika, This series is SO incredibly cute! I have to admit that books 1 and 2 are my favorites but I think the entire series is worth the read. It is a Young Adult fantasy series that (mostly) stars a woman and has a little bit of gendered role reversal. Cute!Caveat: Books 3 and 4 are pretty annoying and book 3 (this one) has THE WORSE ENDING. Seriously. If you decide not to read them, give me a call and I'll give you the run-down. Have water handy, lolokslifewine/r-calling-on

  • Kaethe

    9 October, 2007cliffhanger ending, wow5 September, 2015I am perhaps most inclined to love this volume because Morwen, a witch with lots of cats she can talk to and books. But that stupid rabbit is annoying as hell and just won't ever stop whining. It's like being trapped in a car with the worst toddler imaginable for eternity.

  • Kailey (BooksforMKs)

    I adore every book in this series! Imaginative setting, quirky characters, and an adventurous plot full of magic and dragons, secrets and intrigue. It’s just as wonderful re-reading each book as it was the first time.

  • Laura

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ For Trouble and Scorn and their other 7 feline companions who looked nothing like proper witch's cats, and for Killer the ever hungry rabbit turned to a bright blue six-foot donkey with wings. They are amazing!!!

  • ShoSho

    Annoying characters (Killer and Telemain voices grates on my nerves!) and a very bad cliffhanger :(

  • Tirzah Eleora

    I liked the third installment in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles better than the second. Morwen's POV was fun and we get to see lots of her cats, who were definitely some of the best secondary characters. Killer the giant blue donkey/rabbit and the fire witch (can't remember his name right now) were both great supporting cast as well and there is a lot more action. One thing I'm not a big fan of in the sequels so far is the references to well-known fairytales. I don't recall there being any refe [...]

  • Jannah (Cloud Child)

    2.5/5 (warning: swearing involved) Ugh. What a long boring pile of snore. I couldn't even be happy that it ended because of the cliffhanger epilogue. The first two books of this series are delightful, with lovely fun characters and an interesting plot. However, this book failed because of the following:- The plot basically had the same bad guys, the wizards, which worked the first time, but is seriously tiring now, the cart is broken, the horse has run off, so please take a fuckin' rest with thi [...]

  • Caitlin

    Not bad, but nowhere near as good as the first two.In Calling on Dragons, the ever annoying Society of Wizards decides to become a serious threat to Mendanbar, Cimorene and the entire Enchanted Forest. They want the magic that's omnipresent in the forest and have decided that they're not going to let Mendanbar and his magic sword prevent them from getting it. So when the sword gets stolen, Cimorene, the witch Morwen, the magician Telemain, the dragon king Kazul and an assorted number of beasts i [...]

  • Gwyn

    Yet another delightful adventure from the Enchanted Forest! I especially loved this one because the point of view switched to Morwen, whom I adore. I mean, she's a young, red haired witch who hates the traditional witchy things, has 9 hodgepodge cats with the BEST names, and grows lilacs in her garden. And she's just so no-nonsense and I love her ^_^ (unimportant but still: I really like the front cover but it's a shame Morwen has a witch's hat on as she never wore them :/) Those cats were proba [...]

  • Joy

    Although I am so reluctant to recommend books in which a Dragon is turned into a protagonist, (curious why? Excellent non-fiction on the topic of myth and popular culture today is "A Landscape With Dragons"--highly recommend it to parents who have children heavily invested in fantasy literature. You don't have to agree with all his points to realize that he is raising an issue than many parents might not even know is there. /book/show/10) I cannot help but love these books! A spunky heroine, a i [...]

  • Hebah

    This one felt like a middle book. It was a charming installment, but it was definitely the setup for a concluding volume. The cats were delightful, but some of the gags like Killer's enchantments and Telemain's academic mumbo-jumbo felt a little overused.

  • Sara Saif

    Sweet and smooth. The kind you can finish in one sitting. Loved it but the first one still remains the best. This time the spotlight belongs to Morwen, the witch who helped Cimorene and Kazul on previous occasions. She has more than half a dozen cats named like Trouble, Scorn, Miss Eliza, and she talks to all of them. She's quirky, unusual for a witch and the only one who understands what the bananas Telemain is talking about. I find the whole melting-wizards business really funny. Things got a [...]

  • Jo Anna

    Calling on Dragons is written from the point of view of Morwen. I always loved Morwen's character, so I was excited to learn more about her and her nine cats Murgatroyd, Trouble, Scorn, Fiddlesticks, Jasmine, Jasper, Miss Eliza, Chaos, and Aunt Ophelia. However, I feel like I barely got to learn anything new about Morwen at all (although I did quite enjoy her cats in this book) because I was constantly having to read about how annoying Killer the rabbit was, how not one of the characters was rea [...]

  • Abigail

    I. LOVE. THESE. BOOKS. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quick, easy, and fun fantasy story that'll stay with you. I've read this series more times than I can count and I enjoy it every time and rediscover things about the characters. I recommend this for kids, and everyone older, because it had such a great influence on me and has such great messages. Love!Also: this book is from Morwen's P.O.V. and it made me realize just how much I love her.

  • Bethany

    This series continues to be 'cute' without having much to offer me beyond that. I would love to read this to kids: I think it would be fun. But I wouldn't read it for myself. Right now I'm reading it because one of my friends told me to!

  • aja

    this is my second least favorite book in the series. it's a toss up -- morwen's pov means we get to listen to the cats talk, which is obviously awesome, but killer is so annoying. i'm not gonna read the fourth one, because it is my least favorite.

  • Cloie Rainilla

    Darn, this could've been a whole lot better! I still did enjoy it, besides I just gotta continue the series after that ending!3 Stars

  • Denlillebogblog

    2½-3 stars.

  • Pam

    A solid book 3. I really enjoy reading about the further adventures of Wrede's Enchanted Forest characters. This book had the reader getting to know Morwen's cats a lot betterd I enjoyed their true to life catlike personalities! I hope in book 4 they find a more permanent solution to wizards than repeated melting.I'd love to see their powers taken forever!

  • Joe Santoro

    Definitely not as good as the first two. I really didn't need a focus on Morwen's cats they were more interesting and mysterious as a pack telling us which is which and trying to develop them separately was just too much. Having flipped through the original book, I see why she ended it where and how she did, but it was pretty unsatisfying I'm actually not totally sure I'm even going to read the last one we'll see.

  • Julie

    Cliffhanger!!! Definitely a fun read, from Old MacDonald to Rapunzel (actually Rachel's and she had a chair) tower. Silliness abounds and also some action. And in this one we get to hear what Morwen's cats say.(view spoiler)[ Told mostly from Morwen's point of view (1st book was Cimorene, 2nd book was Mendanbar), this book opens with the witches having gotten complaints about not being traditional enough from one Arona Michealear blah blah Vamist. Then Morwen's cats find a 6 foot rabbit named Ki [...]

  • Harold Ogle

    How much we enjoy a book has such a big dependence on everything else that's happening to us, including what we've just read before it. Coming off of Daniel Abraham, I realized that I wasn't enjoying this book nearly as much as the previous two "Enchanted Forest Chronicles" books I stopped.I set the book aside for a few days and did other things. Then, when I resumed the book after that break, I enjoyed it so much more. This book was fun enough that I spent time recounting some of the silliness [...]

  • Hilary

    This series is forever destined to be slightly incomplete on my GoodReads shelves because there's no way I can remember just how many times I reread it as a child. Of all the books in The Enchanted Forest Chronicles, it is this andDealing with Dragons that I had the clearest memories of. It amuses me a bit that Brandel, the fire mage, I recalled so clearly as being my favorite character in this book apart from Morwen he's barely in the book at all. What exactly was I thinking?FollowingSearching [...]

  • Sara

    After years of sitting on my shelf, I've been rereading the Enchanted Forest Chronicles over the past few months. I love the quirky humor, unique characters, and original retellings of classic fairy tales that are dropped in like Easter eggs throughout!In this, the third novel of the series, Queen Cimorene is in a bit of bind. Her husband's sword has gone missing, and it's up to her, Telemain, Morwen, and some new and hilarious characters to find it. I enjoyed listening to the tale from Morwen's [...]
