This is by far my favorite book of the series. Why? Let me indulge you in the greatness of this book.

DRAGONS!



There are little dragons called minor dragons which remind me of the Terrible Terrors from How to Train Your Dragon. But better. I mean, different colors mean different abilities! Purple = singing. Green = healing. Orange = laughter. And so on. They're adorable! I want some...

GOOD WIZARDS!



All I can say is, I think Mr. Gandalf in this gif is under the spell of TobyMac. Just saying. Anyway,

I’ll start off by saying I enjoyed DragonQuest quite a bit more than DragonSpell, the first book. I could see things much more clearly in this book and felt a much stronger bond to the old characters as well as the new.

I think my favorite thing about this book were the new characters. They really added a lot. Toopka, a little doneel girl, was absolutely adorable and made me laugh many times. The meech dragon, Regidor, was fascinating and a very imaginative creature I thoroughly enjoyed. But my m

I liked this book even better than the first in the series! The story here picks up just a couple weeks after the events of the previous book, DragonSpell (Dragon Keepers Chronicles, Book 1). Since we already know the characters, the story here is able to take right off without needing to take time to introduce the reader to everything and everyone.

Most of the same characters from DragonSpell are back, with the addition of several new ones as well. I especially enjoyed the addition of Toopka, as

This series is still holding up well! I'm pretty sure either this or DragonKnight was my favorite in the series — I can definitely tell why this one would've been. We have the beginnings of Kale and Bardon, and I think I like them even more as a couple than I did before? As a note on Bardon — I definitely appreciate his character much more than I used to. His backstory has all the ingredients necessary for a Broody Hero, but instead, Bardon's just a person. He doesn't brood; he worries. He's a p ...more

I haven't read too much fantasy. But I have family members who really enjoy that genre. So I bought this book on CD, read by Ellen Grafton. She does a good job. Though her voice sounds like a young girl, she is talented and can change it to fit the character she is speaking for. The story, of course, is good-vs-evil. The author invented some quite disgusting creatures to work for the evil wizard. The young heroine must find her way, and must help the quest. I started to look forward to finding o ...more

I enjoyed the book so much! It like a Christian fantasy book! I wish more of those were out there. Donita K Paul is one of the best authors I've ever read.

This is probably as far as I'm going to get with the DragonKeeper Chronicles. If after two books I find that I can't care any less what happens to the characters, it's going to be a waste of my time to continue with the series.

The good stuff : I like very much how religion and magic can exist side-by-side in this series. The wizard Fenworth for instance, corrects Kale when she called him a great & powerful wizard. He says there is no worth in being that. He is a devoted & trustworthy se

This is book 2 in the series and it was a very good sequel!

Though, same as book 1, there are just way too may characters to follow and sometimes the action happens so fast that you barely notice it happened at all. For instance, some characters are walking along and suddenly they're in the middle of a fight (quite a few of these short battles in this one) and then suddenly it's over and someone is missing. It goes by so fast that you barely have time to register what is happening and don't even

A Quickie Review

The second in Ms. Paul's Dragon allegory series, this has everything that made the first one in the series great.  Anyone who enjoyed DragonSpell should definitely read this one.  The story, the writing, the fantastical world...what's not to like?



Score: 4/5

DragonQuest is a great book. The main reason for this is: BARDON. He's awesome. And really cool. Bardon. <3 This was a very enjoyable book and I found Kale a much better, more likeable character than in the first book. :)

I find it a little creepy that I only read it like four months ago and I can only remember like eight scenes...Which for such a large book is really weird.

It's the tird time I read this book and still I think it's one of the best book ever. I love how Donita K. Paul writes and she's full of imagination! I could read it again and again.

The book “DragonQuest” written by Donita K. Paul was about a girl named Kale who is on yet another quest. And again, she is looking for another meech, but this time the egg hatched. Kale must find this meech egg with all her friends, and so called “mother”?? Kale never even knew that her mother was alive until now, and now she has two? Kale is going through so much trying to figure out which mother is her REAL mother, she almost can’t deal with taking care of a random child, Toopka, and five min ...more

Kale encounters new opportunities and dangers in DragonQuest. Her simple assignment to go help Wizard Fenworth with Regidor, the rare meech dragon, becomes more complicated when she is entrusted with a street orphan and burdened with an overseer of sorts.
Her overseer, Bardon, is really just an older student who aspires to join the ranks of Paladin's knights and holds himself to a rigid standard. Toopka, her orphan ward, is really just a delightful handful that can be counted on to keep things f

This was a pretty good book. I enjoyed the development between Bardon and Kale. The story overall was enjoyable.

There's nothing particularly challenging or complex about these books. It's interesting and likable, so worth reading the next one but nothing riveting thus far.

DragonQuest was an interesting fantasy book filled with Christian themes, adventure, dragons, and wonderful characters. It never truly was a pageturner for me, but still, I really enjoyed it and will be continuing the series to the end.

Writing: 4/5

DragonQuest is technically well written. Grammatically I found no problems and it does get the story across. It doesn't, however, really pull you in, and the descriptions are somewhat lacking. It is very difficult for me to picture doneels (one of the

Fantasy has had a (somewhat undeserved, I think) bad name as a genre among believers, given how some of the works treat morality and faith. Beyond The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia, believers have been unwilling (which is a shame, in my opinion) to give fantasy a chance. Recent years have seen some terrific Christian fantasies, that deserve a look by believers. One of these great series, are those written by author Donita K. Paul, whose books are quite well known and loved for t ...more

Fantastic addition

This was another inspiring and encouraging tale in what has become for me a great series. Right up there with C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, a unique universe not to far removed from our own as it relates to Him above and our relationship to Him and others.
