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

'True literary comic genius' - Sunday Express

'This is Fforde's first book for children and as ever he is terrifically inventive and this is full of fun' - Daily Telegraph

'Jasper Fforde has one of those effervescent imaginations that never throws in one joke when he can fit in two or three . . . he created his mad but logical parallel version of the Welsh marches with loving detail' - Independent

'This is a lively, witty and entertaining tale for older children who still like making silly faces.' - Philip Womack, Literary Review

'Highly recommended. Very funny' - Independent

'[Fforde's] ripping yarn of magic in decline mashes up the usual spells-and-beasts motif with a satire on corporate cash and tabloid values.' - i

Every bit as imaginative and unique, comic and engaging as his adult books . . . THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER is a fast, funny, entertaining, feel good read. Fans of Thursday Next will enjoy it whatever their age - www.fantasynibbles.com
