CSFF Tour: Dragons of the Valley

This week, CSFF is touring Donita K. Paul's Dragons of the Valley. I don't own the first book in the series, The Vanishing Sculptor (soon to be renamed The Dragons of Chiril), so I haven't read either book. However, my younger sister Lydia is a huge fan of Donita's books, and has this to say:

The characters in Dragons of the Valley captured my heart from the very first sentence – from the unpredictable Wizard Fenworth, to the adorable Rayn, and, of course, the absent-minded Lady Peg. Mrs. Paul writes in such a way, that at the end of each book, every character seems like an old friend. I look forward to reading these books again and again, and cannot wait to read Dragons of the Watch.

Twelve-year-old Lydia Hart loves fantasy, and is also a writer herself. She just had her first story published in the Winter 2010 issue of Starsongs magazine. The story is entitled "A Winter Melody."

  1. Hooray for Lydia for getting published. That is truly a remarkable accomplishment for one so young.

  2. Adding my congratulations to Lydia for her publishing accomplishment, but also kuddos for such a cogent review of Dragons of the Valley. (Check that girl's birth certificate. Twelve? Are you sure?!? ;-)
