A Desperate Search Begins…

DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul

One Dragon Egg Holds the Key to the Future.

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 Desperate Search Begins…

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 Thoughts

I loved the quest feature in this book. A slave, Kale, finds herself swept into this quest when she never asked for it. The characters are very interesting, my favorite character would half to be Dar. I like his big brother attitude. Wizard Fenworth is crazy but yet really smart. I really didn't like Leetu at the beginning but she kinda grew on me towards the end. I think it would be really neat to have pet dragons such as Metta and Gymn. They seem really adorable the way the author portrays them compared to other dragon stories I have read. I really enjoyed this book.
