Part of a Series?: Yes, it’s the first in a three-book series.

It’s a ploy to lure a heroic knight so that he will fight the dragon, marry Creel out of chivalrous obligation and lift the entire family out of poverty. Creel isn’t worried. After all, nobody has seen a dragon in centuries.

But when the beast actually appears, Creel not only bargains with him for her life, she also ends up with a rare bit of treasure from his hoard: a pair of simple blue slippers, or so she thinks. But Creel learns that these shoes could be used to save her kingdom from the brink of war—or destroy it.”
