January CSFF Blog Tour 2, Day 1: Dragons of the Valley, by Donita K. Paul

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.

"Ha! Face the wrath of this #10 sable-hair beauty!"

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:

    1. I just hope the Disney stormtroopers don’t come after me for posting a picture of His Mouseness. Free advertising, one would think…

      I did something similar when we toured Faery Rebels: Spellhunter. Guess what my all-time most-often-viewed post is?

  1. The artist theme in particular appealed to me. Personally, I prefer this trilogy (Dragon Chiril) over the DragonKeeper series.

    Also, nice Epic Mickey image! That game is awesome!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Donita. Aww…as my stepmom used to say, “Fer cute!” I’ve got a few friends in my local writers’ group who write children’s fiction, and several more who have kids in that age range. I’ll point them in your direction.
