Once a slave girl in the village of River Away, Kale is freed when she discovers a dragon's egg. She is given the unexpected opportunity to journey to the great walled city of Vendala to become a servant to Paladin. Yet this young girl has much to learn about the difference between slavery and service.

A Desperate Search Begins...

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 as a dragon-keeper. 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...

Weaving together memorable characters, daring adventure, and a core of eternal truth, Dragonspell is a finely crafted and welcome addition to the corpus of fantasy fiction. Download and start listening now!

    " I was kind of disappointed in this book. I thought it had a lot of promise, and the plot was actually really good. However, there were several things about this book that I didn't like. Firstly, the author tried really hard to create a unique world for this story, but I just thought it was a bit too confusing. She gave all the species of the characters strange names, and it took me awhile to figure out what type of creatures everyone was supposed to be. I suppose an o'rant is a human, emerlindians are kind of like elves, mariones are dwarf-like, grawligs are ogres, and so on and so forth. I still can't figure out what the heck a doneel is supposed to be and I can't get a good picture of one in my imagination, which was somewhat irksome. Secondly, I didn't think the main character, Kale, was very original at all (and she was kind of annoying at times with her low self-confidence and unwillingness to think for herself) In fact, I didn't think any of the characters were very well developed, which is the main reason I only gave this book 2/5 (good characters are the most important part of a book, in my opinion.) The parallels to Christianity were nice (although I was rather far into the book before I could figure out who the heck Paladin was and his significance) but it got a little too preachy/sermon-y for my tastes at some points and I got bored because the story wasn't progressing as quickly at these points. After being disappointed in this book, I'm not sure if I'll continue on with the series. I liked the storyline and would like to see what happens next, but I'm not sure if it'll be worth my time. "

    " A very good book. It mixes Christian belief and myth together. Perfectly good for all ages! It's also the first of a five book series. "

    " Dragonspell, the first in a 4 book series, is an easy, fun and exciting read. A delightful allegory of what it means to be a follower of God, well written as a story of challenge and conquest as a young girl, raised as a slave, learns to find her stength in her relationship with Paladin. She discovers her gift of finding dragon eggs and is drawn to find a large clutch, as well as using the talent to find the rare Meech Dragon egg, and rescue it from the evil Wizard who tries to obtain the power of Paladin, and rival his authority in the land of Amara. Powerful messages about trusting God and following the way of Jesus are weaved into the adventure. A well written Pilgrim's Progress story, the reader watches as Kale grows and matures, and learns the way to do the same. I highly recommend this to all ages, from pre-teen to adult. "
