Praise for DRAGONQUEST
By Donita K. Paul


“Donita K. Paul’s DragonQuest is a rich tapestry of creatures, characters, and adventure.  A whimsical allegory, casting bright light on ultimate truth.” 
–Lyn Cote, author of The Women of Ivy Manor series


“You never know what to expect in a magical world full of creatures like mordakleeps, blimmets, or doneels. But one thing is sure: This grand, fantastical odyssey of Kale the Dragonkeeper will sweep you off your feet.”
–Robert Elmer, author of the HyperLinkz fantasy series for kids


“Shut your eyes, hold your breath, and plunge into the unshackled imagination of Donita K. Paul! In DragonQuest, Kale’ s journey of self-discovery continues through a succession of adventures and mishaps that leaves you grinning with breathless, page-turning anticipation. I am in awe of Donita K. Paul’s intricate world-building that can rightfully stand alongside master storytellers, Lewis and Tolkien. There is so much depth of heart to this fantastic adventure that it’s difficult to say what I most enjoyed. A fantasy must for the very young at heart, no matter your age.”
–Linda Wichman, author of Legend of the Emerald Rose


“Donita K. Paul’s DragonQuest continues the story of Kale and her well-drawn compatriots, who set out on yet another quest in service to God by serving His people.  Cleverly and compellingly wrought, DragonQuest is a terrific sequel to DragonSpell that is sure to delight readers of all ages.”
–Kathleen Morgan, author of Giver of Roses

Format: Paperback
Kale and her friends return in this mesmerizing sequel to DragonSpell. Two weeks into her training at the Hall, Kale, a dragonkeeper for Paladin, is summoned to help the aging Wizard Fenworth with the meech dragon she quickened. Two minor dragons and a furry young street urchin are already under her care, but there's also an irksome someone to report on her and train her to defend herself - Bardon, a structured older boy called the Snitch behind his back.

Facing danger even to get to Fenworth's, the group soon finds that their journey is only beginning. The evil Wizard Risto has seized another meech to further his plans of taking over Amara. As they travel to free dragons already enslaved by Risto's influence, the mystery surrounding the mother Kale never knew begins to be hampered by more questions.

Rich in adventure, deep in insight, and filled with the intriguing creative touches that fantasy readers love, this book is a must-read for all ages. Seven high races and seven evil races people Amara, portrayed in detail and kept distinct. Multi-dimensional characters become friends you wish you could meet. Dragons permeate the story like a flock of tropical birds, with vivid coloring and varied personalities. The author also adds mind-speaking abilities, wizardry, gateways to travel long distances instantly, and a cloak with pockets that don't bulge, but these elements are only frosting to deeper issues like trust and discipline. A twisting and suspenseful plot finishes the novel on a high note but leaves room for sequels to come. The Dragonkeeper Chronicles are books sure to captivate every lover of fantasy. - Katie Hart, Christian Book Previews.com

Format: Paperback
Kale was once a slave, but was freed by her village elders when she found a dragon's egg; they sent her to study at Hall, but on her trek there she found more eggs and battled an evil wizard (see DRAGONSPELL). Eventually she made it to the Hall where she expected to be in service, but instead is a student, a difficult adjustment for one who has always been in servitude.

The Wizard Fenworth learns of the exploits of the dragonkeeper of Paladin as Kale is known; he sends for her to come to The Bogs as his apprentice and to nurture his youngling a recently hatched meech dragon-infant. Her teachers at the Hall send swordsman and fellow student Bardon to accompany her. Kale dislikes Bardon, but the journey is long and dangerous and he seems to always be there when she needs him until the evil Wizard Risto makes his latest move. He has attained a new meech dragon that makes him nearly invincible; he plots vengeance on the slave girl who defeated him recently before conquering Amara.

This spectacular sequel stars a delightful young heroine still struggling to understand the change in her circumstances from servitude to student. Bardon is a fabulous sidekick as he irritates and fascinates Kale, whose just discovering the attractive non-mischievous side of boys. The evil villain Risto is the perfect adversary in DRAGONQUEST as he obsessively needs to defeat the little girl who humiliatingly defeated him before and then conquer the world. Donita K. Paul provides a delightful fantasy that both the Potter and Tolkien crowds will treasure.

Wow, and I thought that DragonSpell couldn't get better. I was so wrong. DragonQuest was awesome!!!

Kale and others (including the hilarious Wizard Fenworth, a personal favorite of mine) go questing again - this time to find another Meech Dragon and keep Wizard Risko from being his evil self again.

I loved the new characters, and I thought that it was cool how far Kale has come since the frightened girl we met in the first pages of DragonSpell. I was (again) fascinated with the painting that "came to pass," or whatever, and I will certainly be keeping my eyes out for more such paintings in the next books.

Speeking of the next books, I certainly hope they come out soon, I can't wait to find out more!

Format: Paperback
In Paul's first book in this series, "DragonSpell," the world was well developed but some of the character development seemed to be lacking; seeing the events through only Kale's perspective seemed to almost be a hinderance instead of a help--it almost limited the understanding of the characters to only her (and perhaps Dar, who was actually quite well-developed in the first one). But in "DragonQuest," though the perspective is still strictly Kale's, the character development is indeed excellent.

Bardon and Toopka, the two new additions to the Dragonkeeper cast, are extremely well defined. Without them, the story wouldn't be nearly so good, and when Lyll is added, it solves a bit of mystery surrounding Kale that I and perhaps some others expected to see solved in the first book. It this book, Paul pulls it out beautifully, all the while bringing out another mystery, this one having to do with Bardon.

In short, the plot is very similar to "DragonSpell," but the addition of new characters is what makes it unique. I almost expect a little romance between Kale and Bardon in the coming books--Donita Paul HAS written several romance works and I don't think she'd pass up the opportunity. I look forward to the next installment!
