An extra tour this month! In Dragons of the Valley, Donita K. Paul takes us back to the land of Chiril, in the world of another book we reviewed not too long ago, The Vanishing Sculptor, where peace and tranquility is threatened by an invading army–and another enemy that could be much, much worse. Tipper Schope and her friends must travel to the Valley of the Dragons to hide the statues that help maintain their world’s balance, keeping them safe from the enemy’s nefarious designs. Oh, and they must also fend off the invaders and restore peace and order to Chiril. No problem.
Yeah, as if.
Fortunately, they have a secret weapon–a painter with a magic sword.
Yes, a painter. Mmm-hm, doesn’t exactly inspire confidence, but in Ms. Paul’s stories, heroes tend to arise from the unlikeliest places. Let’s hope he doesn’t fight like a painter. Or a dairy farmer.
I’m still reading the book. Real life has once again wreaked havoc with my schedule, but I expect to have a review ready on Day 3. In the meantime, please visit the other fine stops on this month’s bonus Tour:
