Baby dragon debutantes. Territory challenges. Dragon battles. When will the chaos end?Dragon Sage Elizabeth Darcy longs for life to return to normal, at least as normal as it could be for a Blue Order officer who lives with more household dragons than most small villages. Having two sisters and an infant dragon to present as debutantes to the Order, make 'normal' difficult. The fine ladies-she-dragons one and all-of the Cotillion Board make it impossible.Sir Fitzwilliam Darcy, Knight of the Pendragon Order never envisioned his oath to 'protect and serve the interests of the Blue Order and dragonkind' would demand immediate action. But only a Keeper can defend Pemberley's territory against threats far too big for a baby dragon to manage. Threats against the Pendragon Accords themselves. And only the one closest to her can protect the Dragon Sage from the sinister forces menacing the Order, possibly from within its own ranks.Can Darcy and Elizabeth ensure the Cotillion strengthens the Order rather than laying the groundwork for its demise?Meryton meets Pern in a fantastical regency romp boundto delight readers of Jane Austen and Anne McCaffrey alike. Book 8 of Jane Austen's Dragons



The Dragon Keeper’s Cotillion is The Event of the season for the blue order. It is the introduction to society for female keepers, male keepers’ wives and daughters, and, our course, baby dragons like the star of the show Pemberley.
But all is not well with our young baby dragon Pemberly. Her rights to her territory are being challenged.
Maria Grace brilliantly balances the world of the dragon accords with the inspiration from Jane Austen’s regency tales. The world-building is complex and imaginative with many thoughts, rules, and history that you almost believe this is how the original stories should have been told. I love this book so much with the addition of the minor dragons and tatzelwyrms story being explored more.
On to the next one.
