'Dragonlinks offers compulsive reading in a thrilling and wonderfully imagined quest for the individually power-bestowing links of a mysterious and arcane mailshirt. The story performs the unusual feat of combining meticulous and original world-building with a matchless heroine in the extraordinary young Countess Jelindel. - Isobelle Carmody' (Publication summary)

'Anyone who has read Dragonlinks will recognise Paul Collins as a writer who truly understands the power of high fantasy. It is the power to tease the imagination with worlds so exotic, yet so seemingly familiar, that we allow ourselves to recognise within them the best and worst that we can be. From the opening battle with the deadmoon warriors to the final confrontation with the Preceptor's fearsome legions, through the wonders and dangers of paraworlds, the Countess Jelindel, scholar, Adept and fighter, must call upon all her power, intelligence and courage - and trust in the loyalty of friends - to restore balance. Share the journey on the Dragonfang. The ride is exhilarating! (Brian Caswell)' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon Dragonsight Paul Collins , Camberwell : Penguin , 2005 Z1341342 2005 single work novel young adult fantasy

"The action never stops in Dragonsight. Countess Jelindel dek Mediesar, Daretor and Zimak are sent on a desperate quest to recover a stolen jade talisman called the dragonsight. With a slow-acting poison ticking through their veins, they have only six weeks to find the talisman and take the antidote. There's magic and mayhem aplenty as they're hunted through the paraworlds, before the final violent confrontation at the Tower Inviolate. And then in sight of their goal, the ultimate treachery. A terrific page-turned, crammed full of action, intrigue and lashings of magic." (Ian Irvine)' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon Wardragon Paul Collins , Ormond : Ford Street , 2008 Z1527526 2008 single work novel young adult fantasy

'Wardragon is the culmination of The Jelindel Chronicles in a soaring saga.

'Finally Jelindel, with her allies, Zimak and Daretor, has tracked the alien mailshirt across two radically different worlds. But the journey is perilous when each step is lined with flying beasts, metal wasps, mercenaries and assassins . . . and the mailshirt linked up with the evil Preceptor to create a deadly enemy.

'All Jelindel has is a little magic, Zimak's wit and Daretor's sword to scrape through and that is not enough.' (Publisher's blurb)
