After a lifetime of slavery, fourteen-year-old Kale is set free. She travels to The Hall in Vendela where she will receive her training as a servant. Before she can reach her destination, ogres attack her. She escapes into a cave where she finds seven small dragon eggs. When she comes back outside, she is rescued by Paladin servants. They inform her that Paladin has given her a gift, the ability to find dragon eggs, and persuade her to leave her journey to The Hall for another quest: find a missing meech dragon egg and fulfill her destiny as a dragonkeeper. Donita K. Paul crafts a wonderful adventure into an amazing fantasy world. Its no wonder why this book won a Christy award. I found the characters marvelous, my favorites being Gymn and Metta, two dragons so tiny they often ride on Kales shoulders. I highly recommend his novel for boys and girls of all ages. Looking forward to book two.
This Book and the other books in this series are amazing. They have helped me understand a little bit more about how God provides for us and I love how the author took truths from the bible and made them principles. This series is great for believers and non-believers alike. I fully intend to encourage my friends and family to buy these books and read them, they are a great tool for witnessing to people as well. I'm sure God is going to use these books in a huge way. I can't wait to find out what Donita K. Paul will bring to us next.
DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul hooked me from the very beginning. I love Kale and all of the amazing characters! When Kale find a dragon egg and her masters turn her over to go to The Hall, where she is to be trained, her life is changed by Dar, a doneel, and Leetu, an emerlindian save her from a murderous band of grawligs (creepy trolls) she find that her course and life are changed. She learns that she has special powers, but is still afraid and wary of questing. Along with her comrades, she goes of to rescue a dragon egg from the evil Wizard Risto.This is a book I highly recommend to readers of all ages! It has a great Christian message, with colorful creatures, and a wonderful quest.
Kale, the village slave for River Away, is nobody specialor so she believes. After discovering a minor dragon egg, the village elders send her to The Hall for training. But Paladins servants send her on a different quest: to recover the meech egg Wizard Risto stole from Wizard Fenworth. One of the best aspects of this book was how the sentient races differ from the traditional elves, dwarves, etc. The doneels and kimens are particularly original.
Open this book and you'll enter into Kale's world. A world of dragons, dragons that come in all sizes, colors, and gifts. A world of emerlindians, o'rants, mariones, and many more races! Discover Wulder, the God of this world, and learn his precepts as you set out on this journey with Kale, the Dragon Keeper.
