Thinking of North Carolina as a home to dragons is not the most imaginable thing, but It is the fascinating subject in Laurie McKay’s first book; Villain Keeper!

 

Thinking of North Carolina as a home to dragons is not the most imaginable thing, but It is the fascinating subject in Laurie McKay’s first book; Villain Keeper!

 

12-year old Prince Caden has a special life ahead of him. He is the seventh son of the king, gifted with speech, and trained to protect his kingdom, Razzon. The rest of his life is available to him, right after after he kills a dragon, a creature born of chaos.

 

Caden’s first chance comes when he runs face-first into a fire dragon. Just inches away from his goal, a portal opens up under him and Sir Horace on the ice, and they fall right in.

Falling through the portal, he grabs the hand of an young girl named Byrnne, also an accomplished sorceress. They fall into a land that they quickly learn as Asheville, North Carolina, and as the ways of this new world falls into place, school becomes a place where he can be.

 

The first day of school for Caden is a bit of a surprise, as the teachers there are evil magic doers of Razzon and the other countries, and he suspects the school secretary is an Elderdragon, one of the dragons who founded his world.

 

I liked this book for many reasons, the first being that the book deals with my favorite subjects, and that it was fast-paced and had great characters. I also liked that the cliffhangers were minor, and that there was minimal violence.

 

Another thing I would like to warn people that this book does not have a typical aspect like some other popular books do, like Eragon or Dragon Rider. If you have a very strong opinion about dragons, then this book is not for you.

 

Apart from that, I would recommend this book to many others, although children under 10 would be frightened by the violence. This book is the first in a series, and I know that the rest of Caden’s adventures will be fantastic!
