Dragon Keeper Dragon keeper is a book published by Black Dog Books and written by Carole Wilkinson in 2003 set in Ancient China. The genre is Fantasy. This is the first story of a young slave girl who believes she is not worthy of a name but finds within herself the strength and courage to make this perilous journey — and do what must be done. Ancient China, Han Dynasty. A slave girl saves the life of an ageing dragon and escapes her brutal master. Pursued by a ruthless dragon hunter, the girl and the dragon make an epic journey across China carrying a mysterious stone that must be protected. I Honestly didn't like it because the style wasn't really my type personally I do like a lot of Fantasy books but this one was quite bad.
