Looking for Fictional Book about girl who can tame mystical beast

[ Edited ]

I dont remember a whole lot about this book. The cover had a green dragon and a girl with blond hair. The girl lived in the mountains and learns to tame beasts. I think she has to fight a kingdom and uses the creatures to help her fight. Thats about all i can remember. Any help or ideas would be amazing thank you

Re: Looking for Fictional Book about girl who can tame mystical beast

Hi.  This sounds like "Wild Magic" by Tamora Pierce.  This is the first in a the Immortals Series (4 books) about Daine, who finds she can speak to and sometimes control animals and magical beasts such as dragons.

Hope this helps.

OOOOOOoooo!

I think I know the one you are talking about. Try: The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip. It sounds just like the one you describe. It's about a girl Sybel who lives on Eld mountain and takes care of the magical animals that live there. It's a great book.
