Talking to Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede No. Just, no. I think I'll send my niece the first two books and pretend they are the entire series.

I can't . . . I just can't do it.

I can't send her a series of books that says that girls who reject the traditional roles society has for them end up as single mothers living on the fringes of society with no friends or family.

I can't send her a series of books that says the most important thing a woman can do with her life is raise a son, because he's who needs to save the day.

I can't even read the second chapter, the urge to rip out pages is so strong.
