Carole Wilkinson was born in Derby, England and moved to Australia when she was 12. She lives in Melbourne, with her husband and daughter. She is the award-winning author of over a dozen books. He LOVED it. Stayed up late at night reading (yep, he can, we homeschool) and raved and raved about it. He told me that I "must" read it too. When he finished, he begged me to get the first book (this one) and is reading it now, and loves it as much as the second book. But Tao is certain he is not the one; he has no interest in caring for a difficult dragon. He believes his path lies in another direction. The year is 325. The powerful Han Dynasty is a distant memory and tribes of barbarian soldiers fight over what was once the Empire. It is a dangerous time. Kai is 465 years old – a teenager in dragon years.

Summary of Dragon Keeper by Carole Wilkinson.

She then joins a magical dragon named Danzi in his quest to the ocean. All the while, she is with Danzi Ping must overcome her passive ways, and in addition step up to the challenge of becoming a dragon keeper.

Dragonkeeper is a fantasy novel written by Australian author Carole Wilkinson. It is the first book of the Dragonkeeper series, which consists of six books (two trilogies) and a prequel. The second book is called Garden of the Purple Dragon and the third book is called Dragon Moon. In the second trilogy of the series, there is the 4th book which is called Blood Brothers, then Shadow Sister and finally Bronze Bird Tower. There is also a prequel to the original Dragonkeeper novel known as Dragon Dawn.

Ping is a slave in a little-used royal palace on the edge of the Emperor's kingdom. Her tyrannic master is a cruel drunkard who neglects his duties as Imperial Dragonkeeper and under his watch the Emperor's dragons have dwindled from a magnificent dozen to a miserable two. When one dragon dies, only the ancient and wise Long Danzi remains. His fate seems sealed - until Ping comes to his rescue in a moment of startling bravery that reveals her destiny as a Dragonkeeper. Pursued by the Emperor's forces and an evil dragon hunter, Ping, Danzi, and a rat called Hua, set off on a remarkable journey across the kingdom. Bound for the Ocean, they carry a mesmerising, beautiful dragon stone that must be protected at any cost. Surviving dangers of all kinds - a shape-shifting necromancer, and a ritual sacrifice among them - the trio finally arrive at Ocean, Danzi's final place of rest. But as her dragon-friend leaves Ping forever, the dragon stone reveals its spectacular secret...

I'm writing this on behalf of my 11 yr old son. He adores this series. He is normally one who reads only for information. A three inch thick reference book about sea animals will occupy him for hours, but a novel will get scrutiny and a turned up nose. "Too thick, chapters are too long, words (font) are too tiny..." But I told him he needed to pick SOMETHING fiction and TRY to read it. And no, not Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

He actually ended up choosing the second book in the series (Garden of the Purple Dragon), not realizing it was a series. He LOVED it. Stayed up late at night reading (yep, he can, we homeschool) and raved and raved about it. He told me that I "must" read it too. When he finished, he begged me to get the first book (this one) and is reading it now, and loves it as much as the second book. We have also ordered the third book (Dragon Moon).

The things he says he loves about it are:

It is full of action.
He loves the dragon.
He loves the Asian culture.
He says is just "sucks him in."

Now I'm dying to read it--and will tell everyone I recommend it because it got my reluctant fiction reader to fall in love with a whole series!

As a Chinese American adult reader, I was looking for books to send to my young nieces and I am delighted to have found this. This book respects children's sensibilities and keeps the action and surprises rolling in fast. Not one boring moment. Twists and turns, escapes to safety, danger, dangerous journeys, humor, friendship, loyalty and so much mythalogical and historical information about China and Dragons that you don't realize or resent the fact that you are getting an education in one of the most important symbols of Chinese life.
Ping is one of the best new characters in children's literature. It doesn't matter that she is female. She is wonderfully realized and her journey with the Dragon helps her grow, learn and love all at the same time. All the characters, animal and otherwise are fully and beautifully written. This is destined to be a classic.

I am 56 yrs old (as of this date) and I still enjoy books written for young adults, they are relaxing, easy reads. There are 3 books that I know of in this series, and each one was well written, I could use my imagination and "see" what the author was writing about. Sometimes it dragged a bit here and there,but overall, I enjoyed these books very much.

First in a "must read" series for kids. I understand there is a prequel but did not get a chance to read it yet. I read all three and could not put the second and third down.

What an amazing product. It was exactly what I was looking for.

My kids love this series... thanks!!

I ordered the series for my 11 year old son. Can't say which of us enjoyed it more. It has enough action to satisfy a boy but inspirational and educational at the same time. Gives insight into ancient Chinese culture and teaches some good life lessons. He tore through each book and even chose it to write a review for school. Loved it!!
Great dragon book series. Good fantasy for middle school or advanced earlier reader. Good story fantasy for adults as well.
