"The Dragons of Chiril" by Donita K. Paul

“The Dragon’s of Chiril” by Donita K. Paul is an excellent companion novel to the DragonKeeper Chronicles. The novel was extremely entertaining; filled with adventure, loss and magic.  It follows Tipper a young emerlindian who, after the loss of her father, has had to take care of her mother and her family’s estate by selling his famous artwork. When she learns that in order to free her father, and even save the world, she has to find three of the statues, she begins a quest far more difficult, and far more life changing than she could have ever imagined. With the help of her questing companions, she journeys far and wide, meets fantastic (and intelligent dragons)  and faces many perils. Along the way she discovers that her faith as she knows it may not be all there is, and with her father’s help discovers Wulder’s grace and love. All in all, I found the novel very well written. However, I was also a little disappointed by the fact that as I was reading I found many places where I was very confused, as if something was missing or left unsaid.  That being said, it is still a great novel to read, and I recommend it to all.
