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.

I'm Enthralled by Donita K. Paul & Audible Books!

Would you listen to DragonSpell again? Why?

I plan on listening to this whole series again. I stumbled on her books by looking for Anne McCaffrey by doing a search for "Dragon". I'd never heard of Donita K. Paul or her books, before, but now I'm addicted. I'm also addicted to Audible Books, now, too. I'm not a very good reader, but have always loved listening to people's Stories, so Audible Books is just the thing for me!

What did you like best about this story?

I most enjoyed the way Magik is used & how it follows the Laws of Quantum Physics. Also, the complimentary relationship between Dragons & people.

Which character – as performed by Ellen Grafton – was your favorite?

Kale has to be my favorite character. It's heartwarming to watch her grow & mature throughout the series.

I liked the way Ellen Grafton had different "Voices" & accents for the various characters. She does a marvelous job of keeping all the Voices straight. So it's more real than just listening to a "flat" narration. The Voices bring the characters to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'm now addicted to Audible Books & have bought many more than I intended to. LOL!

I like Donita K. Paul's Sense of Hummer. She makes me laugh & cry. She has a gift for bringing her characters to life & making me identify with them. She's my new favorite author & I've fallen in love with these books. I especially like Principle Quoting Bardon. His character is able to instill Morals & Ethics into the Story without being preachy.

Any additional comments?

Listening to Stories (Audible Books) versus watching TV, stimulates the Imagination Center in the brain. I can Feel extra blood flow as the "Movie" plays out in my "Mind's Eye"!
