The Dragon With the Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis
Aventurine is the fiercest, bravest dragon there is. And she’s ready to prove it to her family by leaving the safety of their mountain cave and capturing the most dangerous prey of all: a human. But when the human she finds tricks her into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, Aventurine is transformed into a puny human girl with tiny blunt teeth, no fire, and not one single claw.
But she’s still the fiercest creature in the mountains — and now she’s found her true passion: chocolate! All she has to do is get herself an apprenticeship (whatever that is) in a chocolate house (which sounds delicious), and she’ll be conquering new territory in no time…won’t she?
Please excuse me, for some reason I emptied this when I added the picture and somehow can’t recover my delightful review. So this time it will be a short review, because sometimes one doesn’t need more.
This book redefines some concepts on dragons, or rather, makes them more fun. Introduces the concept of a food mage (I am a food mage for sure, if I can’t be a dragon).
Also, there is a chocolate house (that isn’t made of chocolate, sadly) and lots of hot chocolate with chilli (which makes my Mexican heart ver so happy).
There is aloso Silke and Marina and Horst, and I just wanted to grab everyone and hug them and go have some chocolate in their chocolate house because it is like a dream come true.
