A nameless orphan with no past and an uncertain future becomes his unlikely ally. The young orphan soon discovers that it is her destiny to protect the aging dragon and his mysterious purple stone. Chased by an evil dragon hunter and a powerful sorcerer, their adventure is not easy. Each must learn to help and understand the other if they are to survive. To succeed in her task, the young orphan must reach deep within herself to find courage she never knew existed. No longer can she be the timid, shy orphan she once was. She is now the one, true Dragon Keeper.

So, this book was a pretty good book. It had a plot, good characters, and an end result to the story, which apparently leads into the next book ( I haven't read it yet). As good as the storyline and action sequences were, there were a couple of noticable plot holes in it. I won't say what they are, because it might spoil it, but I will say to watch out for some of the details or little pieces of wisdom given from the dragon. Some of it never comes up again, or is even mildly important in the story, although it REALLY SHOULD BE! Or at least clarified.... the writer just kinda dropped it in the story somewhere after describing it as or mild importance. Other than that, great book if you like dragons and Chinese history/culture.

Oooh, ooh, Dragonkeeper was amazing! At first I was
reluctant to read it... It sounded classical, the title Dragonkeeper...
But, it's only now that I'm writing this review that I find out it is
the first book in a series. But, I haven't read the next books yet, but
I will, why?! Because this book was amazing. Ping is a slave to the
so-called dragonkeeper... This was very sad. A surviving dragon, Long
Danzi, wants to travel to her to the sea. They meet lots of obstacles
and overcome them. This was wonderful, especially as Ping slowly
learned how to control the magic she had as what she was... Amazing
book. Definitely a recommended dragon read :D
