16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Amanda Craig HALL OF FAME on 3 Mar. 2006
Format: Hardcover
Despite Mulan's Mooshu, Chinese dragons seem a bit too dignified for the kind of stuff you want from a dragon, ie, flying, breathing flames and the odd potion. Dragon Keeper may well change all that. Ping, its heroine, is a slave girl in charge of feeding two wretched Imperial Dragons. Kept in filthy captivity, half-starved and forgotten, they are the last of their kind. Soon after one of the pair dies, Ping hears the emperor sell his dragons to a dragon-hunter and, moved by her own desperation to survive as much as by compassion, they escape together.

What follows is the most captivating children's book I've seen so far this year. As Ping and the stubborn, mysterious dragon escape from the evil Diao, by flying, walking and sailing down the Yangstze River, they form a bond which changes them both. At all costs, the "stone" Ping found in the corner of the dragons' prison must be saved, for reasons that become obvious, but the dragon Danzi also teaches her wisdom - and how to count. The greed of the dragon hunter, who wants it only to sell its valuable organs could well stand for the ravages currently being wreaked on China's landscape; its heart-rending sufferings and patience in adversity bring out the best in Ping so that, having begun with only a rat for company she ends up entrusted with the most precious thing in the world. On the way to escaping to the Ocean, and the Isle of the Blest, they have many adventures but it is the spiritual journey which is most touching.

This was an excellent read. I was hooked from the first page to the last. Thank goodness for Amazon and that I could order all the books for this story as I picked up the second one as soon as I had finished the first and then the third as soon as the second was finished. Don't be ashamed just because you are an adult to be seen reading this book............... enjoy the magic of a good tale.

The titles appealed to me because they had the magic word Dragon in them. In the reviews another older person had read and enjoyed them through her grandchild, this encouraged me.
I bought these for me and loved them, and I know I will read over and over.
The poor little slave girl overcomes her adversity, saves her Dragon. Meets the Emperor, who isnt much older than her.
As every good heroine, she creates chaos, but with help gets through.
These are a set of books for all ages.
