Review: Dragon Keeper

Outstanding author, Carole Wilkinson has captured every detail in her three amazing books, Dragon Keeper, The Garden of The Purple Dragon and Dragon Moon.

A slave girl is sold as a child to master Han, the keeper of one of the emperor's palaces. She then escapes and journeys to the so called ‘ocean’ with two true friends, and finds who she truly is.

She meets a few friends and enemies along the way and becomes the target of some of the most famous and powerful people is China.

This book is packed with adventure, and teaches history at the same time. When I read it, I never knew it was jam packed with information and sayings and their meanings.

Carole has put so much effort into researching and writing this book, that skipping a sentence will make you lose the plot.

It is in my top 5 favourite books, up there with the all time favourite, Thunderwith. All the detail brings your imagination to life and I bet this will be a book you will treasure.
