Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Mispronunciations Distract Reader to Good Story"

    The performer, Ms. Meyers did not perform either the Dragonkeeper Chronicles or the first book of the Chiril Dragons series The Vanishing Sculptor/Dragons of Chiril. It became abundantly clear in the first few minutes of this recording that was either she not coached or trained on the pronunciations established in the previous recorded novels, with kimens now being pronounced Keymons (like Pokemons). and poor tumanhofers names being mangled at every turn. It is very distracting and takes away from a story consistent with other offerings in Ms. Paul's series which offer wholesome quality spiritual fantasy adventures which have just the right balance of action, humor (I absolutely love the wizard Fenworth), but the performance by Ms. Meyer could have benefited with some simple consistencies with previous audio work done on these two series. Who knows, perhaps kimens (read: Kih-mums) should have always been Key-mons, but since I've never heard differently until now, I'm struggling to get used to it and absorb the story with the attention it deserves.
