Read from the Book

From ``Dance of the Snow Dragon': At the end of a passageway Sangay came to an enormouscircular room. There was a smell of jasmine, and sandalwood, andcamphor. Light poured through glass-covered apertures in theroof. And there in the centre of that rich, silk-carpeted, silk-curtained room stood the gem-encrusted golden throne. Serpentsand lotuses twined round it; eight golden lions supported it;half-sitting, half-lying across its seat was a frail old man inthe scarlet and turquoise and emerald garments of a king. When he sawSangay he braced his hands on the golden arm-rests of his throne and drew himself stiffly upright. The pain inhis eyes, in his drawn grey face, betrayed the terrible effort itcost him. Sangay knelt, and wordlessly offered his bunch of lotusflowers. They were tattered and limp, but the king of Shambhalaaccepted them as gravely, as graciously as if they had been madeof gold. "At last," said the King, and his voice was a mere flutterof breath in his tense and straining throat. "I feared that theworld had forgotten me. I feared that you would never come."

Editorial Reviews

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR Eileen Kernaghan's DANCE OF THE SNOW DRAGON"This is one of the best fantasies for young people that I haveread for some time." (Andrea Deakin, the Vancouver Sun)"Kernaghan unwinds this tale with powerful force and tightcontrol....the audience for this book will be readers of highfantasy of all ages, but it should not be so limited." (MaryBeaty, Quill & Quire) (Dance of the Snow Dragon) is lushly cinematic with visualsplendours of flora, fauna, costume and creature -- magic,dreamed, real and combinations thereof." (Heather Kirk, Books inCanada)Kernaghan tells (Sangay's) story like an ancient fable, and themagic of Sangay's travels is subtly underlined by the understatedquality of her prose." (Douglas Barbour, The Edmonton Journal)
