Dragonkeeper 5: Shadow Sister

By Carole Wilkinson

The fifth instalment in the internationally bestselling and award-winning Dragonkeeper series. Now in paperback. Winner of the 2014 Aurealis Award, Best Children's Fiction.

Tao is learning to be a dragonkeeper. With no one to teach him it is not easy. He must keep Kai safe but there is danger at every turn – they are pursued by a gang of murderous nomads, tricked by unseen spirits, attacked by a giant seven-headed snake and disoriented in the realms of the dead. Most terrifying of all is the ghost who can turn blood into ice. Tao knows he must prove he is truly worthy of the name dragonkeeper. But the road west is never straight and nothing for Tao and Kai is what it seems.

  • The Dragonkeeper series has been extraordinarily successful both in Australia and internationally. It has won many awards.
  • Carole constantly receives requests (and suggestions) for another book in the series.
  • "Blending fantasy with fiction, this outstanding series is a continuous inspiring adventure, constructed with subtle philosophical and thought-provoking messages on accountability, strength, courage and compassion." BuzzWords Books
