Review and Giveaway: Dragonspell by Donita K.Paul. Ends August 14th

Dragonspell (Dragon Keepers Chronicles, Book 1) by Donita K. Paul

Once a slave, Kale is given the unexpected opportunity to become a servant to Paladin. Yet this young girl has much to learn about the difference between slavery and service.

A small band of Paladin’s servants rescue Kale from danger but turn her from her destination: The Hall, where she was to be trained. Feeling afraid and unprepared, Kale embarks on a perilous quest to find the meech dragon egg stolen by the foul wizard Risto. First, she and her comrades must find Wizard Fenworth. But their journey is threatened when a key member of the party is captured, leaving the remaining companions to find Fenworth, attempt an impossible rescue, and recover the egg whose true value they have not begun to suspect…

Weaving together memorable characters, daring adventure, and a core of eternal truth, Dragonspell is a finely crafted and welcome addition to the corpus of fantasy fiction.

My Review: This is a Christian fantasy and if you are a fantasy fan, Dragonspell is the book for you. Kale never thought she will one day embark on a perilous quest to find the meech dragon egg stolen by the foul Wizard Risto or the thought that she will find herself in the midst of danger and adventure. She learns to leave her past as a village slave behind her and accept the destiny.  The thought scared her and pleased her too. Another character in the book is Paladin; he’s humble and portrays a Jesus-like character who bid Kale to trust him by showing his love. This book teaches about forgiveness, understanding, faith and trust. It also has a helpful glossary that in the back of the book that defines all the intricacies of Amara.

With spiritual truth and adventure, this story will thrill readers of all ages. This book was very well written, and will keep your attention through the whole story. Recommend for young readers and adults.

  15. My daughter likes dragons. I am interested in seeing how Christian undertones are combined with fantasy especially concerning a dragon. The review actually made me want to read it because the blurb, although intriguing, doesn’t mention Christianity. That was a selling point with me. Will be lookinig up more info.

  16. You know, I just read about this series yesterday when Donita posted about it on Facebook. I think the whole series sounds terrific and would love to read about Kale’s adventures, especially since it’s a Christian fantasy.

    I cast my vote, too! “;o)
