AUTUMNQUEST immediately starts at a blistering pace. Donavah attends a school for those with the gift of maejic. Everything is going wonderfully with her studies, until her brother reveals that he has a dragon egg in his possession; a crime punishable by death! Without warning, the egg hatches to reveal a small red dragon, the rarest of its kind.

Donavah's brother is found and captured by soldiers.

Desperate, Donavah abandons school with her lunch boy companion, Traz, to find the dragon and prove her brother's innocence, all the while trying not to be captured by soldiers herself.

AUTUMNQUEST by Terie Garrison is a fast read, but brilliantly so. Garrison's clear voice and direct dialogue take this story from beginning to end at a mind-blowing speed that will leave readers with the desire to read more about Donavah's adventures. Those who enjoyed Christopher Paolini's ERAGON and are looking for a shorter book will take pleasure in AUTUMNQUEST's story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738709263, Paperback)

It is unlawful for anyone but cruel King Erno to have dragons. So when Donavah finds one, newly hatched, in her brother Breyard's room, she begs him to let it go. The Royal Guard discovers the crime and takes Breyard away to be executed. Heartbroken and guilt ridden, Donavah runs away from school to save him. Pursued by the king's savage soldiers, her treacherous journey turns into one of self-discovery as Donavah learns to use her "magic" gift for animal communication. She forms a special bond with Xyla, who turns out to be no ordinary dragon. When Xyla is captured, everyone is depending on Donavah - whose destiny is somehow linked with this mystical beast - to rescue her. As her brother's execution looms near, Donavah wonders how she can possibly save both of them.

After her brother, Breyard, hatches an illegal dragon's egg, fifteen-year-old Donavah finds herself raising it, and in the process discovers what magical powers she has been given.
