Re-Read Review: Ah - I no longer had the delight of discovering a new world, but this time, I got to visit with an old friend. I accidentally ordered a rather battered copy of this book but that gave me the freedom to write in it, use highlighter and put sheaf's of paper in it. I had planned to buy a 'beauty copy' as well, but this already well-loved volume is growing on me. Having all these notes in it makes the copier dearer. As for the re-read itself - It was still amazing, enriching, beautiful and immersive. I have a few little complaints about some of the vague plotting - especially the rather confusing / lackluster false ending - but they are minor quibbles. The great sensitivity and insight that are on display in this book firmly make it not only one of my favorites, but an even rarer thing - A fiction book that teaches me more truth than most.
Content: Various creepy/ugly monsters are described in detail. Several scary/disturbing moments of peril. One mention of a creature that ALMOST implied that it was bisexual—something which really bothered and puzzled me (perhaps—I hope—I was mistaken). A lot of spiritual warfare.
And now to the good stuff….
I haven’t found a fiction book so rich with allegories since C.S. Lewis and Robert Elmer’s Trion Rising trilogy – that’s right, I compared this author to C.S. LEWIS. The highest compliment I could probably give to a writer. I literally needed a pencil to take notes—I am buying my own copy so I can underline passages. I literally gasped several times as some of the allegories and analogies unfolded. I could relate so much to Kale’s sensitivities and I almost felt like I was reading a guide book at moments—the wisdom that Kale learns is something that deeply resonated with me.
Reading this book, I felt like Kale carrying the meech egg—I was carrying something substantial, beautiful, with wonders inside of it—a story that ‘quickens’ and ‘thrums’ to the touch, hatching its truths inside of me. The wonder of Wulder and Paladin gladden the readers heart. The rest of the characters are original and lovable—the dialogue is natural, the story is compelling. The world-building is phenomenal, enchanting - I was swept into another world.
Like C.S. Lewis – the authoress has an amazing command of language. I saw that a lot of reviewers said that this book needed more description—but I think it is perfect. There are no unnecessary words wasted--the sentences are built with care —her word pictures are perfect—I get more imagery from one of her short paragraphs then pages of description from other authors.
The pacing is perfect—I’ve been reading indie authors recently and was a little frustrated with a lot of ‘filler’, superfluous scenes, or reveals in the wrong places—but DragonSpell—flows beautifully from beginning to end with nary a hitch. The short chapters make reading this very manageable and very compelling—once I picked it up—I didn’t put it down unless I had to.
Also – some squealing must follow – the baby dragons were one of the most adorable things that I have ever read and I desperately urgently want one in each pocket—please? :)
This is definitely a stroke-worthy book—a book whose beauty and truth will be resonating me for a very long time.
