Today we begin our discussion about Donita K. Paul, her books and her website, in our effort to promote the science fiction and fantasy genre within the Christian market. Mrs. Paul has had phenomenal success with her Dragon Keeper Chronicles. Though written for the YA market, Dragonspell and Dragonquest have entertained both young and old alike. With various races that inhabit the land, as well as numerous dragon types such as minor dragons and meech dragons, there’s never a dull moment.
Many writers have expressed an interest in writing a Harry Potter type of series for the Christian market. I believe that Mrs. Paul has done this with her books, whether that was her intention or not. The novels are filled with wizards and magic. Yet, she goes to great lengths to define all things within the law and wisdom of Wulder—the equivalent of God within the world she has created. The stories are wonderful tales that both teach and reveal many deep truths without being didactic.
For her latest installment, DragonKnight, she has captivated me with her hero. Bardon comes into his own as he seeks to fulfill his calling. Watch the trailer for the book here.
To quote her website:
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.
