For those who love fantasy and adventure novels, the fiction piece, The Dragons of Chiril by Donita K Paul is sure to be an enjoyable book to read. The author creates an entirely new fantasy world, rich in detail. In true fantasy fashion, an appendix of characters and a glossary is included in the back as well as a map of the world of Chiril. There is also the battle of good and evil, an essential component of any fantasy adventure as well. The characters, and creatures of the story and world in which they interact come to life. Even the non-human fantasy creatures have well developed personalities which help draw the reader into the story.
The fantasy genre is unique in the sense that the reader can leave behind the so-called bland world in which he or she lives in- a world filled with unemployment, financial problems, frustrations and unrealized dreams. A book which focuses on non human characters, in a fantasy world filled with the supernatural, not limited by physical and social and economic limitations, has its appeal for obvious reasons. Hence, the popularity of the fantasy genre. To be successful at this genre, an author has the difficult and challanging task of recreating an entire new world- rich in detail in order for the reader to enter and engage. As a blogger for Waterbook press, I recieved this book for the purpose of writing a review. My opinions are my own.
