When I was reading Miss Bennet’s Dragon, I found Pemberley: Mr Darcy’s Dragon. As it’s on Kindle Unlimited, of course, I downloaded it to read. What I did not realize when I first downloaded it is that I have read the author’s work before. But more about that at the end.
In this variation, there are Dragon Keepers and Dragon Friends. These are the people who can hear dragons. Mr. Bennet, Elizabeth, and Mary can all hear dragons. Longbourn is the name of their family Wyvern. He’s the Laird of the area.
But Dragon hearers can also have special companions, like Elizabeth’s fairy dragon April. April has blue coloring and often hides in the hood of Elizabeth’s cloak. Elizabeth keeps most of the dragons happy, using the lore that her father has through his position as the historian for the Blue Order.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Pemberley: Mr Darcy’s Dragon, Dragons and humans came to an Accord back when Uther Pendragon was king (any wonder that I love this book? Uther is King Arthur’s father and I love the Arthurian Legends). Plus, I’m sure you guessed it: the name of the estate and the name of the dragon are the same. But Mr. Darcy’s dragon died so he had been waiting for the egg of the new firedrake Pemberley to hatch. Yet, Pemberley was stolen! So Mr Darcy travels with Mr Bingley to Meryton because he’s looking for his egg. They suspect someone in the militia.
This book relates the story of the search for Pemberley. Want to know if they find her? Read it and see!
I did not realize when I read Pemberley: Mr. Darcy’s Dragon that I had read this author’s work before. She has a story called Given Good Principles over on fanfiction.net. (I discovered that it is also available on Kindle Unlimited). I would highly recommend both that book and this one. The story woven together so well. This one is on Kindle Unlimited.
