Dragons of the Watch, by Donita K. Paul, Waterbrook Press, 2011, 400 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-1400073412, $13.99
Paul continues her exceptional Christian allegorical fantasy series with Dragons of the Watch. In this book she introduces, Ellicinderpart Clarenbessipawl, a farmer’s daughter affectionately known as Ellie, who is also a member of the hobbit-sized tumanahofer race.
Readers journey with Ellie, her Aunt Tiffenbeth and Uncle Stemikenjon to the exciting royal wedding and coronation of Princess Tipper and Prince Tayrus in Ragar. However, their trip is interrupted when Ellie sees her beloved pet goat on a nearby hillside and climbs down from the carriage to take him home. Thus begins a merry chase and the fun begins…
Join Ellie’s adventure as she falls through what looks like a glass wall into a land filled with giants, where she becomes trapped. There she meets kitten-sized dragons that communicate in a language called mind-speak along with wild, giant children who rampage through the countryside. Add a bit of romance and a grumpy librarian and there’s nothing not to like in this family-friendly fantasy from Christy award-winning contemporary Christian fiction novelist Donita K. Paul. http://donitakpaul.com/
Written with warmth and humor,Paul’s work is an exceptional alternative to the witches, vampires and zombie books on the market today with its underlying Christian themes and delightful characters!
Trapped in a forgotten city, bound by secrets, Ellie and Bealomondore must enlist the dragons of the watch to find freedom.
Ellis knows exactly where she is going. She just wants to experience the pomp and circumstance of a royal wedding, and then settle into a simple life with a country husband.
With too many choices, Bealomondore’s future is a tangle of possibilities. He is respected, well-known, and admired among the elite of Chiril, but Wulder demands he narrow his focus and follow his Creator, one step at a time.
Both Ellie and Bealomondore’s plans are thwarted when they find themselves lost in an isolated city. As they discern the needs of a group of wild children and a very old man, clues begin to surface and a bigger picture is revealed. With the help of the dragons of the watch, can the two tumanhofers find the way out—and perhaps discover their connection to something greater than themselves?
