A New Quest Begins...
A dragonkeeper of Paladin, Kale is summoned from the Hall to The Bogs by the Wizard Fenworth to serve as his apprentice and tend his newly hatched meech dragon, Regidor. But Kale isn’t going alone. The Hall is sending a student to monitor her performance and report back to the scholars. Worst of all, it’s Bardon–an older boy Kale finds irritating, but who at least can hold his own in a sword fight.
Meanwhile, the Wizard Risto has seized another meech dragon, bringing him dangerously close to gaining the power he seeks. So with only a motley band of companions, Kale sets out on a desperate quest to rescue the second meech, to free those dragons already enslaved, and to thwart Risto’s devious plans. It’s up to Kale to lead the search and to embrace the role that’s rightfully hers. But will her efforts be enough to save the land of Amara from the dark future that awaits at Risto’s hands?
I liked DragonQuest, book two in the DragonKeeper Chronicles, even better than DragonSpell. For one, the cover is awesome. Makes me think of Hallmark's Dinotopia. Great movie. Four hours long, but still a great movie.
Second, the story threw all the characters from the first book into a whole new adventure. Bardon was an especially interesting character. You'll have to read the book to find out why though...
Third, more dragons! Paul did a wonderful job creating a world where dragons and people (er, not exactly people) coexist. It seems so natural throughout the whole story.
All in all, this book surpassed the first one with flying colors. I can't wait to get my hands on DragonKnight, the third book in Paul's DragonKeeper Chronicles. Now where did I put my library card...
