    In an alternate world filled with powerful dragons two young girls find a small dragon with eyes the color of pearls who is near death and seemingly harmless After all their father is a dragon tamer and will know what to do with the small creature if only he would come back home from his hunt Meanwhile their father has become an outlaw the family is destitute living in this world’s version of the Old West in the desert where eeking out a life is a brutal task As the small dragon now named Pearl heals he shows a remarkable ability and loyalty to these young girls and their familyUsing his knowledge of Native Americans in the West Kenton Kilgore has created a harsh world where the respect for tradition and life is part of the survival of these strong people The innocence of these girls is refreshing and their sibling banter often amusing and completely life like As part one of this series the world building is remarkable from each background scene to the characters themselves Although the pace is good there are many details to absorb and I would call the action steady character driven This is a wonderful book for the younger reader who will easily relate to the young characters and the fantasy of having a dragon I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read and review Dragontamer’s Daughters Part One Pearl Publication Date June 1 2012Available at Paperback 302 pagesPublisher CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform June 1 2012Language EnglishISBN 10 1475200641ISBN 13 978 1475200645 For reviews check out Tome Tender's Book Blog or find us on Facebook

    I bought this book and the second part at a fantasy and science fiction literature convention a couple of years ago I didn't know much about it but I've always enjoyed dragons and young adult books so I gave it a go Much to my surprise I really loved itDragontamer's Daughters tells the story of two young sisters and their lot in life living with a poor family on the outskirts of town Though their family is now a frontier family they originated from wealth and magic The father of the girls was once a renowned dragon tamer and now the girls are discovering their family's past and the truth about dragons The story was very well written and every character was realistic I am an only child so I'm not the best person to ask but the relationship between the sisters seemed very authentic and loving The mother's love for her children was also very evident I loved the relationship the family member's shared and the love between them was evident and believableAs for the world building I loved it The world is based on Native American beliefs than around your typical fantasy magic There are dragons but they are different than European or Asian dragons that you might read about in other books The story centers around a small injured dragon that the girls find They name her Pearl and she is absolutely adorable She is a willful creature who has her own wants and needs I loved reading about the dragon and how she interacted with the girls as she grew to trust and love themFor myself I would give this book four stars but I'm giving it a five because I know I would have LOVED it when I was a kid There's no way I wouldn't have wanted to have my own Pearl at the end of the book I still kinda doVisit my blog for this review and many

    Kenton Kilgore has written an imaginative novel that younger readers may find appealing The novel is lengthy approximately 600 pages and is broken down into two separate books I’ve just finished Part I Pearl which takes readers into a fantasy world where empires rely upon the mystical gifts of dragons to protect their lands from enemy invaders The plot centers around the family of former well respected dragontamer Thad Anerson and his family who were once prominent members of Ysparrian society Now for reasons yet to be revealed Anerson and his family have fled Ysparria and are secretly living in the remote desert among the indigenous Diheneh people The family has assumed false names to protect them from the Ysparrian government whose army is actively searching for Anerson because he is wanted for murderLiving conditions are harsh for the Anerson family and Thad is often away from home searching for a way to support his family Kilgore spends much of the book painting a verbal picture of what life is like for the Anerson sisters Isabella or “Bella” who is twelve and little Alijandra or “Ali” who is seven years old They are the central characters whose thoughts and actions are at the heart of the story The daughters are well behaved and strive to be obedient and helpful to their mother and caretaker To Ho Ne To Ho Ne affectionately refers to the mother as “Princess” and the girls can’t help but wonder if their mother is indeed descended from royalty Much about their former life in Ysparria is kept secret and I’m so curious to find out what circumstances have led them to this point in their livesKilgore has taken great pains to develop the main characters within the family and all of them are well rounded with distinct personalities and each character plays an important role in the story While Thad is away from home it is up to the females to maintain their home and keep food on the table I like that the author has created strong female role models who are emotionally strong and nurturing to the two young sisters The mother teaches her daughters how to be resourceful and To Ho Ne passes down the ceremonial legacy and traditions of her native people to aid the daughters as they mature into capable young womenBella and Ali are very close and they have their moments of bickering and conflicts typical of siblings They also serve as character foils to one another Bella is the oldest takes her responsibilities very seriously and her mood is often somber She doesn’t want to do anything to disappoint their mother In contrast Ali is outgoing gregarious and tiny bit of rebellious even though her intentions are good Ali embraces life and sees the good in everyone She is delightful and she uickly stole my heart as she tends to and bonds with a tiny dragon on the verge of death which the family rescues following a deadly storm Despite her mother’s protests Ali affectionately names the dragon Pearl and freuently puts her own safety at risk to do what she can to help the dragon healPart One of the book is dedicated to world building and character development which primarily drives the plot Kilgore also introduces the mysteries that I hope will be revealed in the second book Stormcaller Pearl’s appearance in the desert is highly unusual and she is unlike any dragon anyone has ever seen The powers she exhibits are rare and powerful so much so that the mother is reluctant for her daughters to be around this fearsome dragon that has the capability to cause serious physical harm Yet Ali refuses to be deterred determined to convince everyone that this little magical dragon is friendly and will keep them safe Everyone is curious about Pearl’s journey so far from her native homeland and where her final destination will be I look forward to finding out the connection between Pearl and the Dragontamer’s family In addition I anticipate that the drama and danger will ratchet up several notches now that a mysterious dragon killer is also hunting the Dragontamer for reasons still unknown The themes of the book reinforce the importance of family tradition love and acceptance of those who differ from us and our expectations I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review

    I received this book through GoodRead's First Reads program in exchange for an honest review Dragontamer's Daghters Part 1 Pearl is certainly an interesting book Kenton Kilgore has created a world not all that unlike our own one full of vast empires and indigenous peoples It's full of strange traditions of odd technology all the while mimicking so much of the Old West that I wouldn't be surprised if the language spoken by the Dihneh is actually Navajo it certainly bears than a passing resemblance to it In short this is uite unlike any fantasy novel I've yet picked up Kenton Kilgore has done rather a good job of bucking the typical fantasy trendsJuanita lives with her nanny To Ho Ne and her two daughters Isabella and Alijandra in a small hogan out in the Indigenous people's territory Her husband left a while ago to find a dragon to tame and sell an activity that seems to be less than admired by many of the people in this empire Why her husband is suddenly wanted dead or alive is unknown but so far his uest has brought no success After a terrible storm Bella and Ali find a wounded dragon but it is unlike any dragon native to their area Together with the rest of the family they begin nursing it back to health and while doing so discover some rather strange abilities this dragon seems to haveThis is the first part of a two book series and as such seems to be laying the groundwork for rather a lot that is to come For the most part the book is slow moving It gives you time to really absorb the world and begin to get used to it to start to wonder without giving too much away The writing style is similarly slow and it took me a while to get into it That having been said by the end I was invested in the characters however frustrating some were to me In particular I think Kenton Kilgore deserves rather a lot of praise for having written little girls extremely well Both Isabella and Alijandra are extremely believable as is their mother and To Ho Ne's reactions to them when they are less than goodThis book is interesting and shows a lot of promise While the pace could use improving it becomes charming when delved into deeply enough I could easily see myself getting absorbed by this book when I was younger though I know some children might balk at the lack of traditional action I liked the setting the characters and the extensive borrowing from cultures commonly not represented in such novels I look forward to reading the second part soon

    It's hard to write a story about children with pet dragons that not only is original but feels original Kenton Kilgore achieves this in Dragontamer's Daughters Part 1 Pearl bringing the reader a new world to be immersed in and a reinvention of the concept of dragonsAfter the first chapter which takes place on an abandoned island of vast and mysterious ruins most of the story takes place in the harsh desert on the border between Ysparria and the land of the Diheneh Here in the tiny village of Scorpion Tail we meet Isabella and Alijandra Fhurdrickson Sanches or at least that's who they say they are Their father is a fugitive from the Ysparrian government and their family is keeping safe by living under assumed names While the girls their mother and an old Diheneh woman named To Ho Ne manage a small farm their father Thad Anerson wanders the wilderness allegedly prospecting but in fact searching for dragons to tameThis is even dangerous than it sounds The dragons are not so much monsters as embodiments of natural forces — earth wind rain sun fire poison and so on Their forms their powers and their appetites are extremely varied and some of them have a capacity for mass destruction that would impress GodzillaAlthough the dragontamer has a good many adventures out in the wilderness the focus of the story is a tiny wounded dragon discovered by Alijandra after a storm She names it Pearl begins nursing it back to health and discovers that it has the power to summon wind rain and lightning Pearl starts out completely feral and prone to hurting people who try to handle her but by the end has begun to care for the childrenAlthough I wholeheartedly recommend this book there are two points I want to make so that no one reading it will be disappointedFirst this isn't an action adventure story It's hard to describe the action in the scenes on the farm because the events of their lives apart from the arrival of Pearl are so small but Kilgore gives every moment emotional weight The family's pride in their everyday accomplishments and fear of utter destitution become real for the reader Even out in the wilderness we usually see Thad Anerson talking to other travelers or writing letters to his daughters in his mind rather than dodging venomdrakes or hostile tribes This is not the story of a struggle it's the story of a family — the struggle is just something that happens to itSecond this is only half a book To get to the resolution of any of the plot threads you have to pick up Part 2


  6. A.L. Phillips A.L. Phillips says:

    I just finished this first part of a two part tale and was pleasantly surprised Pearl is both well written and creative I especially liked the author's descriptive abilities; his scenes seem to come alive in the imagination and a reader can watch the happenings of the book unfold with clarity As a warning to readers this book is not a complete story It is truly only the first part of a story that I hope resolves with the second book Strengths of Pearl Good use of language realistic dialogue good knowledge and use of detail imaginativeWeaknesses of Pearl In my opinion this book could have been about 25% shorter and been a better story for it A number of its scenes seemed superfluous neither moving the plot forward nor expanding readers' knowledge of the characters eg the second time in the book that the youngest main character goes to use the outhouse and first checks to make sure there aren't monsters lurking there Cute the first time not needed again Because of this Pearl dragged at times Though I have not yet read the second part if it is similar to this part I would have preferred to see a single book that held the complete story with some trimming done to remove the unnecessary scenesOverall 4 out of 5 and I will go and read the second partNote I received a free copy of Dragontamer's Daughters in exchange for an honest review


  7. Mary Hillier Mary Hillier says:

    Kilgore really knows the American desert and the Native Americans who lived there long before there were reservations He has taken this knowledge and created a fantasy world where dragons not only exist some can be tamed and their power used to change the balance of power uestioning the wisdom of using such a dangerous weapon costs the Nunez family their wealth and station in court and now Juanita and her two little girls Isabella and Alijandra with the help of Juanita's devoted nanny To Ho Ne struggle to survive while the father is away prospecting And then one night in the midst of a terrible storm a dragon comes to the desert and everything begins to change


  8. Naomi Naomi says:

    Read my full review opinion What a wonderfully CLEAN read this book was This book would a fantastic introduction to the world of fantasy or dystopian literature for the young reader I found the novel to be fast paced with likable characters that a pre teen or early teen could identify with The author did a dynamic job in really writing this as a light fantasy novel without the characters or the setting being too crazy which could turn off new readers


  9. Karina M. Karina M. says:

    This book was really interesting I just could not stop turning the pages my eyes were glued on to the page I brought it everywhere I was even asked to stop reading during my English class Even though I enjoyed this book this might not be very ones type of book so I would consider trying it and you'll know if this book is or is not for you
