Editorial Reviews


Praise for DragonKnight

“DragonKnight is a thoroughly enchanting fantasy where dragons speak, tiny mouse-like guardians protect normal-size folk, and young people search for identity. Woven through Donita K. Paul’s carefully crafted world is a strong theme of love, redemption, and the sufficiency of God to see His children through all trials. The icing on this delightful cake is a surprise ending that brings tears of joy!”
–Douglas Hirt, author of the Cradleland Chronicles series

“Donita K. Paul’s inventiveness never ceases to amaze. Fresh ideas for new races of people and unusual creatures keep flowing from her gifted pen. In DragonKnight, we meet a few of these and rejoin old friends like Kale, Bardon, Regidor and the ever-huggable Toopka on a rollicking adventure. As always, this author has a whole bag of tricks up her sleeve–unexpected plot twists, heart-tugging relationships, and captivating characters. Classic is written all over this series.”
–Jill Elizabeth Nelson, author of Reluctant Burglar

DragonKnight swept me into the exciting exploits of Bardon and his loyal friends. The inventive and richly compelling characters quickly drew me into their lives and into a fast-paced fantasy adventure.”
–Faye Spieker, playwright and author of ministry tools for children

“Charming characters in a colorful make-believe world full of beauty and danger. Classic good against evil with wonderful spiritual truths layered throughout and enough twists to keep the reader engaged from first page to last.”
–Sandra D. Moore, Director, American Christian Fiction Writers Association

“Donita K. Paul’s new novel examples the skillful weaving of a fantasy story with strong moral lessons and spiritual insights. Throughout her series, Paul has created fascinating characters who battle powerful enemies and learn what it means to live life in the process. As a result, DragonKnight is both fun and important reading. Young readers will love the action–and readers of all ages will appreciate the insights.”
–Paul Moede, co-Author, Good News About Your Strong Willed Child

Format: Paperback
Bardon heads to the mountains to spend a long-anticipated sabbatical in solitude before taking his vow as Paladin's knight. But someone already lives in the cabin he was instructed to occupy. A young girl named N'Rae and her grandmother need Bardon to help them find Granny Kye's son, imprisoned with other knights following Paladin. Bardon suspects one is his friend Kale's father, and reluctantly agrees to lead the quest.

The wonderful land of Amara returns in this delightful sequel to DragonQuest. A troupe of varied characters fills the pages: members of the seven high races; the seven low races; major, minor, and meech dragons; and the legendary minneken. Combine this with a twisting plot, beautiful descriptions, and depth of characters, and you have a novel that's too rich to devour in one reading. Readers of the previous books may be disappointed at first with Kale's absence, but she does come into the story later on. While DragonKnight tells a complete story on its own, much of it draws from the previous novels, so the series is best read in order. Recommended for teens, adults, and anyone fascinated with dragons. - Katie Hart, Christian Book

Having the read the two first stories in the Dragon keeper series I got my hands on this book as soon as I could. I'd started to read it the same night I got it, and the next I found it hard to stay away from.

I was surprised to see my favorite heroine, Kale was missing from the story, but as the reviews in the front of the book promise, she shows up. If not for the events of her small time in the book, I wouldn't consider this a worthy sequal to the last one. But to see our heroes three years later is rewarding and when we finally see Kale once again no other events could take away a readers joy.

On the long wait I found it was easy to watch Bardon's adventures as seeing things from his eyes was a new experience. There's enough excitement to keep you holding out for Kale to show up. IMO the ending was probably the most rewarding part. Overall, I found I wasn't disapointed, but rather impressed with the format in which this new book was told. Bardon goes from skeptical of Wulder to having true faith in the end.

An awesome read where a fantasy world is made to imply truth in Jesus, similar to Aslan in the "chronicles of Narnia."

Format: Paperback
Knights, wizards, fair damsels in distress, a quest, and Good verses Evil fill this novel by Donita K. Paul. A fantasy - yes, and DragonKnight is a most delightful one.

Bardon, a squire in service to Sir Dar, has been granted a sabbatical in order to contemplate his future. Should he continue his training and become a knight of Paladin, or should he give it up and search for something else he is to do with his life? Those are his choices. Having been granted a year in which to search his soul, Bardon and his dragon, Greer, take off for the isolated cabin of Sir Dar. Only when they arrive they find the cabin already occupied by two emerlidians, Granny Kye, N'Rae, and a minneken from the Isle of Kye, Mistress Jue Seeno.

Granny Kye and N'Rae are to be off on a quest to search for and rescue Granny Kye's missing son who also happens to be N'Rae's father. Jue Seeno is N'Rae's protector, a funny job for a woman the size of a mouse. Bardon is drawn into their quest because he feels it is Wulder's will for him at this time. Only too late does he realize that the ladies expect him to be in charge of the whole quest to rescue N'Rae's father, Sir Jilles, and a number of other Knights under a spell the evil wizard Risto cast many years before. Time is of the essence. The knights must be rescued and released from the spell holding them captive before the Wizard's Plume, a comet passes beneath a northern star called Eye of the North.

Who should read this book? Everyone. Male, female, old, and young, oh, especially the young who are so drawn to the world of fantasy, because this book and its first two companions are filled with spiritual truths that the young should experience. DragonKnight has something for everyone - adventure, love, and redemption.

Format: Paperback
I'm enthusiastic about DragonKnight.

This is the kind of fantasy I eat up--a quest for a noble cause, conflict between good and evil, a personal battle within. On top of that, I thought this was by far Mrs. Paul's best writing.

First, I thought the protagonist, the previously prickly squire Bardon, had a believable goal from the outset. The problems and delays that cropped up still felt like a part of the original problem, so I easily transferred my concern to seeing the new foils dispatched. In addition, the characters that waylaid him from his original plans were delightful, interesting, well developed.

Second, I found Bardon to be a more complex character than Kale, heroine of the previous DragonKeeper books. He was someone I could care about in his internal as well as external struggles.

I also thought Mrs. Paul improved the battles in DragonKnight. With perhaps only one exception, I could see each scene, track the participants, follow the outcome. Realistically, some people were injured and some villains died.

Once again Mrs. Paul's inventiveness is evident. The minneken Jue Seeno threatens to steal the show as did Dar in DragonSpell and Toopka in DragonQuest, yet Mrs. Paul again manages to keep the focus in the right places.

Bardon's mental rehearsal of the principles from the tomes, clearly a potential minefield of preachiness that Mrs. Paul avoids, are especially fresh and appropriate.

As in the first two books, I thought there were occasional slips into transparent Christian equivalency, the most noticeable being prayer before meals (particularly the one where Bardon said, "We thank You for this food and for the hands that prepared it.").
