Our tale begins long long ago, in a land called the Valley of the Dragon. An evil faerie and her dragon lived on the Mountai of the Dark Shadow. Her name was Drocha, the faerie of nightmares. The Snow Queen was the head of the faeries; she forbade Drocha from bothering the valley people. Drocha was so evil that the other faeries refused to be around her. Dorcha was very angry and rebelled by turning Droch, her dragon, loose on the valley. The dragon would fly through the valley at night capturing and eating the livestock and some of the children. Dorch was turned into a rock when he attacked the Snow Queen and her dragon. Dorcha waited for the opportunity to attain her revenge. At last she had her chance to hurt the Queen by destroying a much loved dragon. Sneachta was badly injured and was left for dead but one special child rescued him. They quickly bonded and Sneachta repaid Dieter’s kindness by protecting him.
"The Last Snow Dragon" by Diana Winter reads like a favorite old fable. This tale, like most good fables, treats good vs. evil. Sneachta and Dieter are delightful characters. There are several important secondary characters who are well-developed and who add depth to the story. This is the type of tale my grandmother would share with me. I would always beg for more. Winter has a unique talent for writing a story and making it feel like a legend passed on by word of mouth. I will be sharing this tale with my grandchildren.
