Dragon Flight by Jessica Day George

Dragon Flight (Dragon Slippers, #2)Creel  became a hero in the first Dragon Wars, but she's now returned to her life as a seamstress. However, when an alarming report arrives that an army of dragons with human riders is preparing to invade the kingdom, she volunteers to enlist help from the local dragons to go on a scouting mission. She is good friends with the king and queen of all dragons, but they are secretly hiding, trying to heal from their injuries. Everyone else believes the king and queen died in the war. Creel discovers the army of dragons is being controlled by leather collars, but the identity of the one controlling them is a surprise. A new dragon war is looming, and it will pit brother against brother.

You can probably understand this book without reading the first book in the series, Dragon Slippers, but I really enjoyed both of them. Creel's character doesn't have any special standing in the kingdom other than being a war hero and being the good "friend" of the younger prince. The king doesn't appreciate these facts or help from the local dragons, and this becomes a problem later in the book. I was surprised when the conflict with the dragon army was resolved midway through the book, because the secondary conflict was anti-climatic.
