Introducing The Vanishing Sculptor

From Donita K Paul and WaterBrook Press, nomination number eighteen, The Vanishing Sculptor.

Genre.
Young adult/adult Christian fantasy

Description.

    Book 1, Dragons of Chiril

    Tipper is a young emerlindian who’s responsible for the upkeep of her family’s estate during her sculptor father’s absence. Tipper soon discovers that her actions have unbalanced the whole foundation of her world, and she must act quickly to undo the calamitous threat. But how can she save her father and her world on her own?

    The task is too huge for one person, so she gathers the help of some unlikely companions–including the nearly five-foot tall parrot Beccaroon–and eventually witnesses the loving care and miraculous resources of Wulder.

    Join new characters and old friends in a fantasy that inhabits the same world as the DragonKeeper Chronicles, but in a different country and an earlier time, where the people know nothing of Wulder or Paladin.

What others are saying:

    Something original. Does not happen often in the genre of fantasy fiction. However, The Vanishing Sculptor by Donita K. Paul manages to take the idea of “something old, something new” to a whole new level. From the tip of a tumanhofer’s tongue to the feet of an aged emerlindian’s throne, this epic adventure of self-discovery simply challenges the reader to do what makes reading the best form of entertainment: use the imagination. Not since the days of my youth has a novel moved and inspired me in such a mysterious manner. At thirty-four, I became fifteen again, rediscovering emotions and excitement I had not felt since first reading books like Tolkien’s The Hobbit, Richard A. Knaak’s The Legend of Huma, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
