  1. Not nearly as good as Dragonspell or DragonQuest I had to drag myself through the beginning chapters The prose was awkward and didn t flow well, so much so that I was continually pulled away from the story I m glad I stuck with the book though, as it improved dramatically towards the end And I will confess that I squealed like a seven year old when I first heard Fenworth say Tut tut, oh dear The twist with Jayrus was suprising, but acceptable.



  2. Tipper, a young emerlindian woman, has been scrounging to take care of her family estate since her father went missing Since he father was a renowned sculptor, Tipper had no choice but to sell off his work to pay the bills But her father returns suddenly, then vanishes again Then he reappears, then vanishes, then reappears It seems that Tipper s father is being affected by a portal between two sides of the world Long ago, he had crafted three sculptures out of a special chunk of stone that happe [...]


  3. This was my first adventure reading Donita K Paul with her Christian Fantasy Book The Dragons of Chiril A Novel and I doubt it will be my last This book was chock full of great characters, interesting storylines and adventurous settings to keep the imagination of the reader stirred for sure I think readers of all ages would really enjoy this fantasy tale Our main character Tipper is a girl whose father has disappeared unexplained many years ago Her mother Lady Peg Schope is seemingly mentally in [...]


  4. Sometimes Fenworth definitely gets it right, despite his contrariness and odd ways Young man, you have listened to Librettowit for too long Problems are not problems before they occur After a problem has sprouted, it is indeed proper and prudent to address the problem But to attend to a problem before it has manifested as a problem is foolhardy Kindly refrain from attempting to present problems that are, at the moment, nonexistent Ever stop and think about why you re worrying about something Why [...]


  5. Tipper is a young emerlindian who s responsible for the upkeep of her family s estate during her sculptor father s absence Tipper soon discovers that her actions have unbalanced the whole foundation of her world, and she must act quickly to undo the calamitous threat But how can she save her father and her world on her own The task is too huge for one person, so she gathers the help of some unlikely companions including the nearly five foot tall parrot Beccaroon and eventually witnesses the lovi [...]


  6. The witty banter just tickles me I mean I can vividly picture these conversations going on You still have to have your own imagination going on with the dragons flying over head and the wizards about, but really this is a fun and enjoyable book for all You feel like you know the characters intimately and you ll be looking forward to reading the next book Paul offers something that I haven t found in a lot of fantasy books She captures the genre with a fresh and delightful take I literally could [...]


  7. Donita K Paul is one of my very favorite authors The Vanishing Sculptor takes us back into the world we first discovered in the Dragonkeeper series I loved being back This book wasn t particularly fast paced until the end, but I really enjoyed it I read it slowly because I didn t want it to be over I really hope this is the start of a new series.


  8. I loved this book Period While it was way different than the Dragon Keeper Chronicles, Donita K Paul s first fantasy series, I found it easy to relate to the characters and slip back into the new yet familiar world that she recreated in this book If you are a fantasy fan, I d definitely recommend this for you.


  9. I found the pace of the plot a bit slow While the world was okay, there are a lot of made up words that only distracted me from the story.


  10. What really bothered me about this book were the characters Each one is self righteous, except Tipper, who just comes of as the bullied stupid character.TipperIn the beginning of the book, we re introduced to Tipper and her half mad mother, Lady Peg, and we see how horrible their life is because of her father disappearing Tipper cries about it often, but when her father actually does come back, she welcomes him like it was no big deal that he disappeared leaving her and her mother to fend for th [...]


  11. The story was quite slow, and I didn t feel like the world was sufficiently fleshed out It was mainly a few made up animals and foods that was supposed to illustrate the fact that this story is set in a different world It is possible that if I read all the books the author wrote in this world, I get it , but ideally you are in after only one book.I don t feel like I am being entirely fair, as I read this not long after reading The Lord of the Rings, and that comparison is hardly fair at all.I en [...]


  12. Tipper is at her wit s end She s been struggling to manage her family s estate since her father, the famous sculptor Verrin Schope, disappeared several years ago To make ends meet, she s had to discharge most of the workers and sell off her celebrated father s most cherished works Her dotty mother s extravagant spending habits don t help, and the wise old Grand Parrot Beccaroon, despite providing invaluable moral support, isn t much of a manager, either.And things are getting worse Tipper begins [...]



  13. Dragons of Chiril is the first book in the second Dragon series by Donita K Paul It takes place before the popular The Dragonkeeper Chronicles This was an exciting read for me, because it was the book previous to Dragons of the Valley , which I greatly enjoyed It was fun, to be sure, getting to read the background of that novel The story begins with a young woman named Tipper She is managing her household in the absence of her father, Verrin Schope, who disappeared many years before She must dea [...]

  15. Donita K Paul s Dragon stories are some of my favorites I am enthralled with her ability to make the fantasy world of dragons and their keepers come alive to those of us who are no longer young enough to believe in such things The Dragons of Chiril is no exception to this.The Dragons of Chiril, previously released as The Vanishing Sculptor, is the story of a young girl, Tipper, who is the daughter of a prominent sculptor and an eccentric mother Her father has disappeared from her life inexplicab [...]


  16. I have not read the Dragon Keeper books nor was I aware of Paul s writing before reading Vanishing Sculptor For some reason it didn t register that this book is set in the same world but in a different country and time Although, this is a stand alone book I have a feeling reading the earlier series would provide a lot of helpful background and ease the reader into the universe Paul has created.I am not sure if it was a result of this misunderstanding or background but I found Vanishing hard to g [...]


  17. It s not the pomposity of the building that s bothering me, she said It s the bombastic attitude of the man I must humble myself to Don t, said Liberettowit, stopping before the elaborate wooden door of the inn and staring seriously into her eyes, Don t ever end your sentences with prepositions Beccaroon clicked his tongue Before I believe the preposition she should not have ended that sentence with would be before instead of to One humbles oneself before another person, not to Tipper glared at [...]


  18. There s a lovely mix of witty and hilarious dialogue and banter An enjoyable read, a great revisit to some favorite characters, but a little stale in parts I love Paul, but I wish they had a better cover designer These books are excellent but sadly overlooked.


  19. Donita K Paul s novel The Dragons of Chiril is a fascinating read set in a beautiful, magical kingdom Tipper is a young lady who has been embroiled, through no fault of her own, in a truly challenging set of circumstances She is faced with the huge task of caring for her family s estate and her rather eccentric mother, although she really doesn t possess the skills and knowledge to make a success of it Her father is a famous artist who has been absent for years leaving Tipper to cope on her own [...]

  23. Originally posted at bunnycates reading My Thoughts This story, for me, was a little slow getting going As an after thought, now, I think I am glad it was I had never heard of this series or the author so taking a little time to get the story rolling really allowed me to discover the world If that makes sense I hope so.I really enjoyed the characters I loved that Tipper was very independent and had a strong will You can see my reading updates HERE At times I was confused on her age because she c [...]


  24. This was the first Paul book that I d read and I think this one takes place in the same world as her Dragonkeeper Chronicles I don t think you have to have read them to follow the story but there are a few things that might have been explained that were assumed as already known in this book She uses terms like emerlindian and tumanhofer, which are different races, but we are never told that There is a glossary to help in moments like this but it would have been nice to have some sort of hint in [...]

  27. Hmmm what to say about this one I didn t like it, but I didn t hate it It lied somewhere in the hazy middle First off I m not a huge fan of mystical books, but that s not really what I didn t like about it It seemed to take forever for me to read it I started it on a Friday and didn t finish it till the next Thursday, and for a 400 page YA book, that was just too long The story deals with quite a few things, but one of the main ideas is that of faith The idea of Wulder and what he is capable of [...]


  28. I thoroughly enjoyed the DragonKeeper Chronicles series and they re the favorite books of my 11 year old friend, so we were obviously looking forward to this book You don t need to read those books to understand this one, but I d suggest reading them first because I liked them The Vanishing Sculptor is a Christian allegorical fantasy novel It is a good book with enjoyable and entertaining characters However, I don t think this book had the right viewpoint character Jayrus is the character most [...]
