The Song of the Quarkbeast Summary

The Song of the Quarkbeast: Last Dragonslayer Book 2 by Jasper Fforde

A long time ago Magic faded away, leaving behind only yo-yos, the extremely useful compass-pointing-to-North enchantment and the spell that keeps bicycles from falling over.

Things are about to change. Magical power is on the rise and King Snodd IV of Hereford has realised that he who controls Magic controls almost anything. Only one person stands between Snodd and his plans for unimaginable power and riches.

Meet Jennifer Strange, sixteen-year-old acting manager of Kazam, the employment agency for sorcerers and soothsayers. She may only have one functioning Wizard and her faithful assistant 'Tiger' Prawns to help her. But one thing is certain: she will not relinquish the noble powers of Magic to big business and commerce without a fight.

The Song of the Quarkbeast Reviews

'Highly recommended. Very funny' * Independent on THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER *
'[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 on THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER *
'This year's grown-up JK Rowling' * Sunday Times *
'True literary comic genius' * Sunday Express *
