Dragonspell by Donita K. Paul

Book Description:
One Dragon Egg Holds the Key to the Future.

Once a slave, Kale is given the unexpected opportunity to become a servant to Paladin. Yet this young girl has much to learn about the difference between slavery and service.

A Desperate Search Begins…

A small band of Paladin’s servants rescue Kale from danger but turn her from her destination: The Hall, where she was to be trained. Feeling afraid and unprepared, Kale embarks on a perilous quest to find the meech dragon egg stolen by the foul Wizard Risto. First, she and her comrades must find Wizard Fenworth. But their journey is threatened when a key member of the party is captured, leaving the remaining companions to find Fenworth, attempt an impossible rescue, and recover the egg whose true value they have not begun to suspect…

Weaving together memorable characters, daring adventure, and a core of eternal truth, Dragonspell is a finely crafted and welcome addition to the corpus of fantasy fiction.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book.  Kale is a slave until her gift for discovering dragon eggs is discovered.  She goes on a quest to save an egg from the evil wizard.  Unequipped and unprepared she and her group set on on a dangerous journey!
I loved all the characters in this book.  Seeing Kale's transformation and growth was intriguing and the story flowed naturally.  I love that faith is woven in and doesn't seem out of place at all.  Overall, a great story that is great for any age! 
I rate this a 5/5.  I'm going to read the whole series!
