are fire dragons burning down villages in Amara? When Kale and Bardon leave their bogs after three years to search for meech dragons, Regidor and his dying wife, Gilda, they find that Amara has changed. The evil sorcerers, Crim Cropper and his wife, Burner Stox, and the Pretender are at war in a three-way battle for Amara. Strange creatures mutated by Crim Cropper are invading the land. When Kale, Bardon, Regidor, Gilda, and Granny Noon reach Paladin's Palace, they find him dying because the people no longer care about serving Wulder. After conferences with the sorcerers and the knights, Paladin sends Kale and her father, Sir Kemry, both dragon keepers, out with Kale's minor dragons to look for more dragons and their eggs.
Kale has many doubts about going with her father, who had disappeared when she was young. Together they find a cowardly ropma who tries to steal Kale's minor dragons. Inadvertently he leads them to a valley filled with bisonbecks guarding dragons. But can they rescue the dragons and the ropma babies from Burner Stox and her bisonbecks? If they succeed, will the dragons join them to save Amara? Kale's husband, Sir Bardon, goes on a quest with Kale's sorceress mother, Sir Dar, Regidor, and Gilda to stop the evils invading the land. When a serious illness strikes Bardon, he becomes helpless and is captured by the embittered mad sorcerer, Crim Cropper, who looses all of his mutations on Amara.
DragonFire follows DragonSpell and DragonQuest in a series which has won a following among the young. Paul creates a world of magic and wonderfully imaginative creatures to intrigue her readers.
As someone starting the series in the latest book, I found it hard to keep the various creatures straight. Paul includes a list of characters and a glossary but not a lot of descriptions of her creatures in the story itself. Sometimes I found my imagination from a few words of description in one place out of line with something else. For instance, from the first sixty pages, I thought Bardon and Kale were humans, but they weren't. Both Bardon's father and another emerlindian described are tiny, but Kale looks up to Bardon, so I assume he's one of the tall emerlindians. Also, the differences between the various types of dragons can be confusing. A little more description would help.
In the first couple of chapters the author intimates that the story would have our heroes confronting fire-breathing dragons and going on a quest to find Regidor and Gilda. When they find the newlywed pair quite early in the book and the fire-breathing dragons don't show up until the end, I was rather disappointed.
However, Paul's story offers an adventure, intriguing characters, good values, and a positive view of marriage, all good things for readers, especially young ones. – Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
