Summary

Jasper Fforde's first work for a younger generation of readers: hilarious, offbeat and bewitching, this is the start of a Dragonslayer trilogy

The Last Dragonslayer Summary

The Last Dragonslayer: Last Dragonslayer Book 1 by Jasper Fforde

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 . . .

The Last Dragonslayer Reviews

'Fforde is a master entertainer, and a wordsmith of dexterous genius' * Scotsman *
'This year's grown-up JK Rowling' * Sunday Times *
'Hilarious, absurd and utterly compelling new series of nursery crimes for adults.' * Daily Mirror *
'Fforde's books are more than an ingenious idea. They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted. They have empathic heroes and heroines who nearly make terrible mistakes and suitable dastardly villains who do. They also have more twists and turns than Christie, and are embellished with the rich details of a Dickens or Pratchett.' * Independent *
'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde.' * Herald *
'True literary comic genius' * Sunday Express *
'This is a book for the adventure lover, with an evil conglomerate and action mixed in equal measure with believable fantasy. There is also, happily, lots of word play.' * Courier Mail *
