Imaginative world, adventurous quest, unusual characters, and dangerous foes do make a reliable recipe for a good fantasy read. In Dragonspell, the author has all these ingredients, and delivers it as a Christian allegory. Former slave-girl Kale has a gift for finding and caring for dragons. When she’s called upon to retrieve a stolen rare dragon egg, Kale must face doubts, trials, and peril as she discovers the true purpose of her gift.
The book is fresh, and contains nothing objectionable. It’s not a perfectly crafted novel-the plot meanders at times and the metaphors are obvious. Still, I have no hesitation in recommending this book; it’s nice to find a story that helps kids with their faith. Anyone who craves fantasy will enjoy Dragonspell, and will be looking forward to reading the sequel, DragonQuest.
