In the time of the Han Dynasty in ancient China, a young orphan prepares for a difficult journey. Ping has grown to become a skilled Dragon Keeper, but her greatest challenge is yet to come. After rescuing the baby dragon, Kai, from the evil Emperor, she brings him to a safe haven near the border of the Empire. Now, as Kai grows into a restless young dragon, Ping faces a tough decision. She must find a way to take Kai to the ancient haven of the dragons. Following cryptic clues left by the wise dragon, Danzi, Ping and Kai set off on a long and dangerous journey filled with old friends and new enemies. But the biggest surprise awaits them at the end of their travels, when Ping quickly learns that the hardest part of being a Dragon Keeper may be realizing when it's time to let go. With this story of tender friendships and heroic adventure, Carole Wilkinson brings her epic trilogy about dragons in ancient China to a thrilling and satisfying end.

This is an awesome Chinese dragon story. The author has clearly researched her topic and knows the elements of a great adventure story. I highly recommend you read her three books in order, as the later books could spoil the plot of the first book. This is the last book, and finally where Kai (the little purple dragon) comes into his own. He is on a quest to find the dragon heaven. He also finds other dragons and must take his place within this dragon society. We learn that dragons are very territorial (especially the males). So Kai must fight for his right to remain among them. Meanwhile his Keeper has problems of her own. She is learning that she has to let go of what she loves most in order to save Kai from a terrible fate that is befalling all dragon kind. We also get to see what the common man and woman in China thinks of dragons and what dragons think of the people who look up to them. A great conclusion to a wonderful story. Very much recommended.
