Series: Book #2 The Chronicles of Chiril
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy/Allegory
War threatens the peaceful land of Chiril… can one painter-turned-reluctant-swordsman really help?
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?
This book was so much fun! I loved it. I love Donita K. Paul, her books are always completely clean and so much fun! There is some violence, granted, but it is never dark or disturbing, which is what makes these books so age-appropriate. I would recommend these to anyone looking for godly, squeaky-clean fantasy fun!
