Book Giveaway: Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul

Book Giveaway Christian Fantasy CSFF Blog Tour

Next week, the CSFF blog tour will feature Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul, and in preparation, I’m launching a giveaway for the book. Donita has made a name for herself writing YA fantasy with dragons. All her stories are fun tales of adventure set in a unique world where emerlindians, kimen, tumanhofers, and other races roam. I have plenty to share about the book during the tour, but here are a few tidbits to whet your appetite.

Book description:

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?

Small sample of the first page:

Bealomondore stood in the doorway of the darkened hall. Shadows hid the statue he’d been ordered to steal.

His heart told him to retreat. His feet wouldn’t move. But the kimen, whose wildest flying lock of hair only reached to the tumanhofer’s knee, insisted that the statue be stolen…

    I love Donita’s books. I have read the Dragonspell series twice. Each time, I learn something new about how my relationship with God can be.
    I am a mother of teenagers, and they are reading her books. My sister-in-law read the series and she calls her pack of chihuahuas her little dragons. So fun.

    I would love to enter the contest! I love Donita K. Paul’s books. I didn’t even know they were Christian fantasy at first, but about halfway into the first book I just knew it had to be. It painted a beautiful picture of God, and His love for us. Now I’m hooked!

    I absolutely loved the Dragon Keeper series and have been wanting to read more from Donita. She has a wonderful way in describing the surroundings so you feel like you are right there and can smell everything around you! I am excited for my two pre-teen girls to read Donita’s books.
    I pray that she keeps the books coming!
    God bless,

    The Dragonkeeper and Chiril Chronicles are trwo fantastic sets of books. Ms. Paul has helped to boost the popularity of Christian Fantasy. The books are a great way to teach children how to grow closer to God and develop a lasting relationship with Him.

    Sarah, I’ve visited before and your blog is so inviting! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just jump into that magical kingdom you’ve created up above? It looks so intriguing!

    I’d love to win Donita’s book for my son. She’s one of his favorite authors!
