DragonLight is a light, fun read. I'm not always in the mood for a heavy, epic conquest story. Sometimes the good guys do win, but not always the way that you would expect. Besides the Followers, DragonLight introduces the reader to an ancient evil considered more fable than fact. Add to this the dangerous black dragons, and Kale and Bardon find problems coming from all sides.

The black dragons are a fourth type of dragon in the land of Amara - the majestic riding dragons, the intelligent meech dragons, the talented minor dragons, and now the evil black dragons with poison spines and flaming saliva. Kale finds herself unable to communicate with this new dragon breed. Instead, the dark threat from the sky comes looking for Kale and attacks her as the DragonKeeper. And all she wanted was a few days away from the castle enjoying a quiet quest with her husband, Bardon.

Isn't that just typical of when all we want is a quiet day left alone with our spouse...

The reason for the last minute quest became apparent once Kale and Bardon met with Kale's parents. Kale eventually had a few quiet moments with bardon. So that was a good thing. Kale's actions contrasted well with Gilda the expectant Meech dragon.

Rebecca LuElla Miller said...

Good point about the contrast with Kale and Gilda, Tim.

Good post. I liked your interview with Donita, too.

I enjoyed DragonLight, there were a lot of subtle character stories going on that occured to me after reading the earlier books.

Thanks for the link.

I've been re-reading DragonLight and am beginning to believe that my house was built by the same folks that built Kale's castle.

Only my place has cats instead of dragons, and the snake I found in the basement last year was smaller. (I think one of my cats brought the snake in. Kitty says 'see, I'm contributing to the food supply.' I say 'what a pity none of us here eat snake.')
