The book starts out with a young peasant girl, Kale, leaving her birth place being pulled to something greater then even she expected. Kale seems to have a radar for dragon eggs and trouble.
She soon finds friends and those that know of her hidden magical talents that are connected to all dragons. As she befriends those in her current party and dragons that cross her path or hatch from a egg. She finds her path leads her true self and the world she lives in.
This book interested me because I saw it in the christian fiction section of course now the books have been switched to the fantasy section. I thought it unusual that a series of books featuring dragons and christian influences. So I read the first book and I still don’t understand how or where Christianity comes into play.
What I did like about it was how the story is in progress as you start reading Dragonspell. I am also a big fan of any story with a dragon or two and a fantasy story with magic.
While I disliked some the traveling groups impatience with Kale learning her gifts that she was just learning she had.
I enjoyed the world that Donita K. Paul created. It reminded me a little bit like Piers Anthony’s Xanth world. There were humorous times and then there were serious adventurous times.
