  • In the second book in the Dragon Keeper series, Garden of the Purple Dragon,Carole Wilkinson takes the story of former slave turned dragon keeper, Ping, to a new level. Faced with the dessertion of Danzi and the responsibility of raising his son, Kai, Ping is forced to grow in new ways. As always, Ping represents a strong female character in the middle grade fantasy genre and Wilkinson's prose paints a beautiful picture of not only Ancient China but also of the diversity of human character. In my opinion, this is a buy-worthy series for families who enjoy reading aloud or individuals who enjoy reading on their own. All of my children have been excited over the series, and I like being able to share some books which portray females in strong roles, despite typical treatment of them in the era.

  • I got hooked on Wilkerson's wonderfully funny, lyrical, exciting debut novel, The Dragon Keeper. This sequel is even better. We were left hanging at the end of the first book with the baby dragon hatching out of what Ping thought was a mysterious stone. Weary and wounded, Danzi, leaves the baby with Ping telling her that she knew all she needed to know to care for and protect the baby from starvation, necromancers, dragon hunters and all manner of dangers living in the wild. Ping doubts herself, but her courage, strength,loyalty and love for "Kai", the baby dragon lead her into all kinds of situations where she has to use her intelligence, ingenuity, and talents to fulfill her duty as Dragon Keeper. Throw in Royal Chinese court intrigue and betrayals, a new friendship with a princess and a royal magician, the reader is taken to new heights of adventure, fun, plot twists, surprizes. Highly recommended.

  • This is the second book in three. I needed to immerse myself in the food, daily life, etc. of ancient China for a project I am working on. I became hooked on these books, the story of the wise old dragon, the stubborn but good-hearted Ping, and then the new little dragon. I listened to the first as an audio book but then had to order the second two books to continue the saga. Even though I believe these are categorized as "young adult" books, I find them quite addictive and very readable for adults. Many thoughtful life lessons, well plotted, not predictable, interesting characters, and engrossing. Highly recommended. Have paused in the middle of the third book so I can read slowly and enjoy thoroughly. I wish the books could be made into an animated film.

  • I bought this one and liked it so now comes the series.

  • Excellent book series. Fun adventure for middle school or advanced elementary school reader. Good story for Adult readers of fantasy as well.

  • This is the second one in the series, and I enjoyed the entire set immensely, even though they were written for young adults,I liked them, they were an easy read and relaxing as well.

  • Its not what you think there is a very interesting twist to this story. This is the second book in the series. I highly recommend reading.
