Dragons of the Watch by Donita K. Paul

Back Cover: Trapped in a forgotten city, bound by secrets, Ellie and Bealomondore must
enlist the dragons of the watch to find freedom.

Ellie knows exactly where she is going. She just wants to experience the pomp
and circumstance of a royal wedding, then settle into a simple life with a
country husband.

With too many choices, Bealomondore’s future is a tangle of possibilities. He
is respected, well-known, and admired among the elite of Chiril, but Wulder
demands he narrow his focus and follow his Creator, one step at a time.

Both Ellie and Bealomondore’s plans are thwarted when they find themselves
lost in an isolated city. As they discern the needs of a group of wild children
and a very old man, clues began to surface and a bigger picture is revealed.
With the help of the dragons of the watch, can the two tumanhofers find the way
out—and perhaps discover their connection to something greater than themselves?

The Dragons of Chiril by Donita K. Paul

Editor’s Note: This is a re-released title with a new name.  It was previously titled The Vanishing Sculptor.

Then she learns that three statues she sold were carved from an ancient foundation stone, and the fabric of her reality is crumbling. She must free her father and save the world. But she can’t do it alone.

Her ragtag band of adventurers includes Beccaroon, a giant parrot; Bealomondore, an aristocratic young artist; a handsome dragonkeeper prince; the Wizard Fenworth; and the tumanhofer librarian Librettowit. Together they travel through valleys and kingdoms and consort with purveyors of good and agents of evil to find and reunite the missing statues. Will they learn to rely on Wulder’s grace and guidance along the way?

Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul

Back Cover: With an invasion of her country imminent, Tipper Schope is drawn into a mission to keep three important statues from falling into the enemy’s clutches. Her friend, the artist Bealomondore, helps her execute the plan, and along the way he learns to brandish a sword rather than a paintbrush. 

As odd disappearances and a rash of volatile behavior sweep Chiril, no one is safe. A terrible danger has made his vicious presence known: The Grawl, a hunter unlike any creature encountered before. 

To restore their country, Tipper, Bealomondore, and their party must hide the statues in the Valley of the Dragons and find a way to defeat the invading army. When it falls to the artistic Bealomondore to wield his sword as powerfully and naturally as a paintbrush, will he answer Wulder’s call for a champion?

She must act quickly to undo the threat. But how can she save her father and the world on her own?

Join new characters and old friends in a fantasy that inhabits the same world as the DragonKeeper Chronicles, but in a different country and an earlier time, where the people know nothing of Wulder or Paladin.

A dragonkeeper of Paladin, Kale is summoned from The Hall to The Bogs by Wizard Fenworth to serve as his apprentice and tend his newly hatched meech Dragon, Regidor. But Kale isn’t going alone.

New Friendships are forged

Meanwhile, the Wizard Risto has seized another meech dragon, brining him dangerously close to gaining the power he seeks. So with only a motley band of companions, Kale sets out on a desperate quest to rescue the second meech, to free those dragons already enslaved, and to thwart Risto’s devious plans. It’s up to Kale to lead the search and to embrace the role that’s rightfully hers. But will her efforts be enough to save the land of Amara from the dark future that awaits at Risto’s hands?
