DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul

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 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...

Okay! Quick question! Did anyone notice the shadow on the egg? Ha, now you're looking at it again, aren't you? That is so cool! I think it totally makes the book cover.

One prob though. That scene you just checked out, of the girl creeping up on a dragon? Not in the book.

The pretty cover turned out to be a fake, but did the rest of the book turn out that way?

*duh-duh-duh-da-duh-duh-duh-da-da-da-da-DA!-da-da-da* (Um, hello, Jepordy theme song going on.)

The answer is: No!

Dragonspell, the first book in Paul's DragonKeeper Chronicles, was an adventrous book filled with quirky characters like the Wizard Fenworth. It had me giggling and flipping pages rapidly as the story progressed. I'm not a big fan of drgaon books, but this one had me spellbound. Er, Dragonspell-bound.

Donita K. Paul retired early from teaching school, but soon got bored! The result: a determination to start a new career. Now she is an award-winning novelist writing Christian Romance and Fantasy. She says, “I feel blessed to be doing what I like best.”

She mentors all ages, teaching teenagers and weekly adult writing workshops.

“God must have imprinted 'teacher' on me clear down to the bone. I taught in public school, then home schooled my children, and worked in private schools. Now my writing week isn’t very productive unless I include some time with kids.”

Her two grown children make her proud, and her two grandsons make her laugh.
