The sixth and final instalment in the internationally bestselling and award-winning Dragonkeeper series.
Tao and Kai's journey has been long and at last they have arrived at the Dragon Haven - but what they find is not the sanctuary Kai has described. Are they unwelcome? Will they be made to leave? It seems they will be forced straight back into the clutches of the murderous nomad leader Jilong, who is intent on vengeance. How can Tao keep Kai safe? Being a Dragonkeeper is so much more difficult than Tao could have imagined. But when things are at their worst, help can come from the most unexpected places. And the least powerful can become a mighty force. Perhaps there is a place for dragons in this world after all.
Carole Wilkinson is an award-winning and much loved author of books for children. She has a long-standing fascination with dragons and is interested in the history of everything. Though Carole has written over 30 books, she did not write her first book until she was nearly 40. Before that she had worked as a laboratory assistant and as a film and television writer and editor.
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.
What I loved most about this book is the references to Chinese Mythology and a girl who defies her brutal master and does not accept life the way it is – she breaks down the barriers and finds strength within herself to make this perilous journey which I believe is sending a positive message to girls. Not to mention the adventure is a lot of fun!!
Reading the last book in a series can be akin to seeing off a friend. that is so here but leavened by the knowledge that the series has become a part of so many lives that it will be a part of young readers’ lives for years to come.
