Dragon Slippers #3: Dragon Spear by Jessica Day George

Dragon Spear (Dragon Slippers, #3)Creel and Luka visit the new home of Shardas and Velika, the king and queen of all dragons. Velika is carrying her first batch of eggs when she's kidnapped. A dragon they rescued in book two leads a band of smaller dragons who take the queen to a faraway island. These smaller dragons are dying off, including their queen, and they need a new queen to help their colony grow. With the help of the king and other friendly dragons, Creel tracks Velika to the island and finds she's being held captive in a volcanic cave. Her plan to help Shardas rescue Velika becomes complicated when it's time for the queen to lay her eight large eggs. The captors will fight anyone trying to take Velika or the eggs, and they'll hunt her down again if she somehow manages to get away.

You should probably read the first two books in the series, but this book can be enjoyed on its own. This book doesn't have the action found in the other books, but it's able to develop a good amount of suspense. The dragons are the main characters in this book, although the plot follows Creel. The conflict belongs to the dragons. Creel's younger brother has a bigger part than he had in the previous books. He's never seen dragons before, but he becomes an apprentice to one of them, learning to make potions. I've enjoyed the series and recommend it to other dragon lovers.
