With Kale and her father serving as dragon keepers for Paladin, the dragon populace has exploded. It’s a peaceful, exciting time of rebuilding. And yet, an insidious, unseen evil lurks just beneath the surface of the idyllic countryside.

Her husband, Sir Bardon–despite physical limitations resulting from his bout with the stakes disease–has become a leader, serving on the governing board under Paladin. When Kale and Bardon set aside their daily responsibilities to join meech dragons Regidor and Gilda on a quest to find a hidden meech colony, they encounter sinister forces. Their world is under attack by a secret enemy… can they overcome the ominous peril they can’t even see?Prepare to experience breathtaking adventure and mind-blowing fantasy as never before in this dazzling, beautifully-crafted conclusion to Donita K. Paul’s popular DragonKeeper Chronicles fantasy series.
My two cents worth:
Donita Paul’s writing is always creative and intriguing. To be honest, I read the first two chapters and then my prolific 10-year old stole the book and finished it. So I’ll list his comments instead of mine 🙂 Ben said that “This book was really good, but in the first it was confusing. Then is was okay, and my favorite parts were Mot Angra waking from his sleep and the constant attacks of tiny black dragons. One of my favorite characters is obviously Kale, but I also liked Bardon. I would recommend this book to other kids and adults, of course.”
There you have it, Donita. If you are out to get great kid results, you have a fan at this house 🙂
