A little under a decade ago, a friend of mine contacted me and said “Read this book. You’ll like it.” We all have that friend who when they recommend something, you just say “ok” because they are right 99% of the time over what you’ll like. That’s this friend. So next time I was out at Barnes & Noble I picked up the book.
There is no way any of us could have known what an influence that little book would have made in our lives. Almost ten years later, both my friend, the midget and I have met the author, and the midget works for her. I could write a novella on the events that have happened that are directly related to picking up this book.
Ten years ago Dragonspell by Donita K Paul hit bookshelves, and ten years later Donita K Paul is still writing fantasy stories that make you sit in awe at the imagination on the pages. If you like dragons, fantasy, good stories, great characters, and the most adorable dragons in fiction: pick up these books. You are never too old for a good adventure.
To celebrate the ten year anniversary of Dragonspell there is a giveaway at the official blog:
She has a new sci/fi fantasy book coming out at the end of the month that I pre-ordered and can hardly wait to arrive. (I may have spent time this weekend figuring out how to rearrange by one bookshelf so it would fit.) See the above link for more information.
