DragonKnight (DragonKeeper Chronicles #3)

by Donita K. Paul

from the back cover
Before vowing his allegiance to Wulder as a knight, Bardon heads to the mountains for solitude. His life is suddenly complicated by a woman and her granddaughter, N'Rae, on a mission to rescue the woman's son trapped in a chamber of sleep. Bardon learns that more of Paladin's knights are imprisoned--and suspects one of them is Dragon Keeper Kale's missing father.

my review
I love that Donita K. Paul takes a supporting character from book two and makes him the protagonist of book three, giving a new perspective to the continuing story. However, I did find Bardon a bit dry, especially after being inside Kale's colorful mind for two novels. Greer, bless his little dragon heart, does his sarcastic best to nurture the half-ounce of humor buried in his rider, but unfortunately it's still not enough.

My conclusion: While I appreciate the promotion of a secondary character to hero, Bardon makes a much better secondary character (and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that).

I enjoyed the subtle relationship-budding that occurs in this book (it's not gag-worthy or overwhelming, I promise), and the introduction of new characters with just enough of the old to tie everything together.

DragonKnight (DragonKeeper Chronicles, #3)


  1. I really want to read one of Donita K Paul's books this year because I would like to start reading some more modern Christian fantasy. This sounds like a great book, especially because the relationship building is subtle and gradual.

    1. This is a great Christian fantasy series! I recommend starting with DragonQuest (book 1), though. Thanks for stopping by!
