Last Dragonslayer

by Jasper Fforde

HarperCollins | February 19, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Last Dragonslayer is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

In the good old days, magic was powerful, unregulated by government, and even the largest spell could be woven without filling in magic release form B1-7g. Then the magic started fading away.

Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for soothsayers and sorcerers. But work is drying up. Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and even magic carpets are reduced to pizza delivery.

So it’s a surprise when the visions start. Not only do they predict the death of the Last Dragon at the hands of a dragonslayer, they also point to Jennifer and say something is coming. Big Magic . . .

Editorial Reviews

?Fforde?s first kids? fantasy is spoof, comic mayhem, and sharp cultural criticism. And always lively. . . . Reminiscent of Pratchett in tone, this is clever, suspenseful and engaging.? ? TORONTO STAR
