CATSS Critics: The Dangerous Gift

The Dangerous Gift, by, Tui Sutherland

The Dangerous Gift by Tui Sutherland is a novel about a world of dragons who live on two continents.  The second continent’s dragons come to the first continent because there is a dangerous dragon on their continent.  Snowfall, the queen of the Icewings on the first continent is the protagonist.  She became very paranoid after her mother’s death, because her mom was murdered.  For obvious reasons, she sees these dragons as a threat.  She quickly finds as many magical items as she can. One of these allows her to see into the minds of other dragons, and she is able to empathize with them.
