Overview Trapped in an evil spell... can the knights of Paladin be rescued?
Before vowing his allegiance to Wulder as a knight, Bardon heads to the mountains for solitude. His life is suddenly complicated by a woman and her granddaughter, N'Rae, on a mission to rescue the woman's son trapped in a chamber of sleep. Bardon learns that more of Paladin's knights are imprisoned-and suspects one of them is Dragon Keeper Kale's missing father.
The secret is in their hands-and hearts.
The band travels north, uncertain of their destination and encountering numerous perils. When they unlock the chamber, they discover a dozen knights-who cannot be awakened. The journal holding the secret to rousing them is in an unknown language. How can they find the help they need, and overcome even graver obstacles, to rescue the knights?
Return to the land of dragons and magic you discovered in "Dragonspell" and "DragonQuest," in this finely crafted and memorable work of fantasy fiction with a core of eternal truth.

Wonderful continuation of a spectacular world Feb 12, 2010
I am just going to write this quickly but the summary is that this is another book in this series that continues to build and define the world that Donita Paul has created. I'm pretty sure I read this in about 2 days and I really enjoyed it. I think this is great for young adults and older adults as well. What a great joy and not a bad message to boot.

Great books for teens and pre-teens Feb 17, 2009
These books are part of a series that my kids have just loved. They are full of mythical and fantasy creatures and exciting story lines. My pre-teen and teenager both really enjoyed them. The youngest one has called them her favorites. However, the older teen said that the obvious Christian overtones became tiresome and preachy in the third book, and therefore she opted not to read the last one.
A great series! (Info for parents) Nov 28, 2008
5.0 out of 5 stars A great series! (Info for parents), November 27, 2008
This whole series is great! It is an engaging and fresh coming of age story. I actually teach some jr. high girls that love the series. I am perfectly comfortable talking to them about it too, because the characters and general direction of the plot are extremely virtuous and honorable. (Here comes a spoiler!) In the 4th and 5th books for the series, the heroine is married; so there are a very few situations that arise which are unique to married couples. For example, at one point in time there is an instance where it is obvious that the heroine and her husband are planning to make love. But the book does not go into detail; basically skipping over it, but leaving you with a sense of wellbeing in their relationship. So, if you are a parent, you might want to time it so your child is mature by the time they get to the 4th and 5th books. Overall, it is an enthralling, encouraging, and morally instructive series.
