A Wandering Quest...

Dragonquest once more follows the adventures of Kale, a young Orant girl who has discovered that she is the dragon keeper.

Kale has finally reached Paladin's academy in Vendala and has been doing her best to stay out of trouble. But all too soon she finds herself appointed guardian of an irrepressable doneel child, attacked by deadly spiders, and sent on a quest with the stoic Bardon. And most incredible of all, Kale finds herself raising the Meech dragon, Regidor, who hatched from the egg she rescued in Dragonspell.

Donita K. Paul's characters once again rise to the fore in this novel. I especially loved the new male characters, Bardon and Regidor. The quest does wander all over the land of Amara, and the tension is kept light for the most part, and it can be hard to feel any urgency to what the characters are doing. Thankfully the wonderful characters make the journey an enjoyable one.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Fantasy Tour focusing on Donita K. Paul's Dragon Keeper Chronicles. You can find links to the participants here.

Stuart,

I'm not too up on Sci Fi but a friend of mine is. You would enjoy her rantings... Dove's Subconscious Pit (She's on the sidebar in my blog.) Nice to meet you over at Faith in Fiction.

Loved what you've had to say about these books, Stuart. Your reviews highlight just the right parts to whet the appetite. Might just have to read 1...or 3...before Dallas. :)
