Donita K. Paul is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. I had never heard of Paul before I started Blogging for Books, but I have loved every minute getting to know her. Dragons of the Valley was great, I wish I had realized when I started reading that it was part of a series, because I had a hard time getting into at first (I had a lot of characters to keep straight in my head).
This is a story has everything fantasy lovers will enjoy. Princess, prince, reluctant hero, not to mention wizards, dragons and even Kimen (these guys are cool!). The land of Chiril is on the brink of war and this band of heroes has to keep a treasure safe and learn how to defend themselves. I love the way spiritual truths are interwoven in the story. Like CS Lewis used the land of Narnia and Aslan to teach spiritual truths Paul uses Chiril and Wulder to do the same.
Once I figured out the characters I really enjoyed the book. If you are interested in purchasing the book you can find it here or here.
