The Dragons of Chiril

The Dragons of Chiril
by Donita K. Paul

A fantasy tale geared toward younger readers in the teen years, this book spins a tale of dragons, a missing artist and a quest.

Usually able to find enjoyment in reading any book, I had an extremely difficult time with this book.  Having read other books within the genre and able to enjoy young adult literature, I was terribly disappointed in this book from the start and sadly cannot give much recommendation.

Very slow to start, with confusing terminology and titles that are never defined, I found myself confused as to who characters were.  The plot is confusing and I found myself frustrated that I had no idea what was truly going on.  After several attempts to read this book, skimming, skipping ahead, re-reading, etc. I finally gave up.  This may be a really great book, however I could not get past the confusion and frustration enough to get into the book.  After 10 chapters, I was no more hooked than the first page :(
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated for writing this review.
