Tipper, a young emerlindian woman, has been responsible for the upkeep of her family's estate since her sculptor father disappeared several years ago. To make ends meet, she's been forced to sell off the artwork he left behind.

When at last her father returns, accompanied by two strangers from a distant land, Tipper discovers that her actions have unbalanced the foundation of her world and endangered her father's life. She must act quickly to undo the threat. But how can she save her father and the world on her own?

The task is too huge for one person, so she gathers the help of some unlikely companions - including the giant parrot, Beccaroon, and the aristocratic tumanhofer, Bealomondore - and sets out on a quest, eventually witnessing the loving care and miraculous resources of Wulder.

Join new characters and old friends in a fantasy that inhabits the same world as the DragonKeeper Chronicles, but in a different country and an earlier time, where the people know nothing of Wulder or Paladin. Download and start listening now!

    " "The Dragons of Chiril", by Donita K. Paul, is a delightfully descriptive fantasy adventure. The dragons are wonderfully written and given distinctive abilities and appearances. My favorite character was the giant parrot Beccaroon, whose somewhat stern demeanor thinly disguised his great loving heart. After the disappearance of her father, a renowned sculptor, young Tipper is left to care for her seemingly befuddled mother and their family home. She is aided by her guardian and advisor, Beccaroon. As the years pass, managing to keep hearth and home together becomes increasingly difficult. Tipper sells pieces of her father's art in order provide for her mother and keep their home from being lost. When her father reappears under mysterious circumstances, Tipper learns that she must recover three special sculptures from the works which had been sold. If the statues cannot be brought back together, her father will vanish forever. Thus begins the journey of Tipper and an odd assortment of comrades and dragons, banded together on a vital quest which will save her father's life. Each traveler on the journey learns much about themselves, and they also come to an enlightened understanding of each other. While some elements of the story line are resolved, the ending is left open to make room for the next entry in the series. The explanatory information in the appendix/glossary at the end of the book would have been much more helpful as a preface. Overall, however, I enjoyed the dragons very much!

    " A little harder to read in some areas than the Dragonkeeper series. "

    " LOVED IT! A whole new country and a whole new beginning. Never thought there could be more than one Paladin. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. It is a fantasy story, but has some very powerful religious symbolism. It is a clean read and could easily be read to younger children, but is geared to teens, I think. I felt that the story wasn't quite finished, that there were things that could have been better explained at the end, but overall, it was fun to read. "
