It turns out that inside the hovel is a lair of dragons that live inside the mountain that the hovel is set upon. When the princess gets there, one dragon wants to eat her, but the others think she should become somebody's princess. A dragon named Kazul offers to take her for her princess. Cimorene meets new friends, three princesses who are also dragon's princesses. She deals with wizards, witches, and magical birds. A dragon named Warog, who wants to be king, makes a plot with some wizards who want the king's crystal, which is like a crystal ball, but instead is more like a crystal plate. Cimorene and her new friends all find happily ever afters. You can read this book to find out how.
