Readers of all ages will enjoy this fourth book in the fantasy series, The DragonKeeper Chronicles. DragonFire picks up three years after the last story in the series, but the characters are still familiar and are once again drawn together in a time of need.
Readers will find themselves drawn into the story from the first chapter and the twists and turns along the way keep readers interested.
I loved this fourth book as much, if not more, than the others in the series. Paul is a talented writer who keeps her writing clean, yet she doesn’t avoid battles and conflicts that make the story suspenseful.
