I enjoyed this book. I appreciated that the sex was off stage. The profanity almost stopped me cold and determines that I won't pick up another book by this author.. I handle vulgarity better than profanity. The vulgarity was less prevalent,

message 12: by Carrie

Carrie Johnson Thank you for accepting my friend request! I have always loved fantasy novels especially those with dragons. One day I was searching for a new series and I found your DragonKeeper Chronicles. I bought the first one, couldn't put it down, and then instantly bought the rest of the series. I reread them often enjoying them again as if it is the first time. I was wary about reading your Valley of Dragons series because how could I love it any better than the DragonKeeper Chronicles? However, in just a few chapters into the first book, I was completely hooked. You are one of my inspirations for becoming an author. I have just published my first Christian fantasy novel Journey to Glory (The Glory Chronicles Volume 1) due to your wonderful example. Thank you for sharing your writing gift with the world!

John Piper Thank you for accepting my friend request!

Donita I thought I recognized your name. Nice to meet up again.

Sally Chambers Thanks, long-ago-friend, for adding me as a Goodreads friend! Love that you have delved into dragons!

Donita Sandra and Hylian Princess and Janeen-san, you have brightened this cold and dreary winter's day.

Sandra Mckenzie I'm 64 years old,and have enjoyed reading the books of yours that I've read so far. I will have to look into some of the author's that you recommend. Thank you for writing such wonderful stories. xxxx

Hylian Princess I love your books! I love fantasy, and I've enjoyed the world you have created!


Silver Swan Thanks for accepting my friend request, Donita! :) I haven't read any of your books yet, but I hope to in the future. If C.S. Lewis and Edward Eager influenced your writing, there's a good chance that I'll love it. :)

Penwick I found out quite by accident what an orant is. I hadn't noticed before. Now I see it!

Dorothy Book recommendation: The only book every adult needs. Great baby shower gift. If I'd Only Known...Sexual Abuse in or out of the Family: A Guide to Prevention.

The book every parent/caretaker needs to keep children safe. Seven compelling parent approved and child tested techniques to thwart would-be sex offenders.

Beth Hi Donita,
Thanks for befriending this mystery author. I'm looking forward to your January Write Brain presentation to Pikes Peak Writers!
