When the Black Dragon seized the Deep of Ylferdun, young Gareth braved the far Winterlands to find John Aversin, Dragonsbane -- the only living man ever to slay a dragon. In return for the promise of the King to send help to the Winterlands, Aversin agreed to attempt the nearly impossible feat again.With them, to guard them on the haunted trip south, went Jenny Waynest, a half-taught sorceress and mother of Aversin's sons.But at the decadent Court, nothing was as expected. Rebellion threatened the land. Zyerne, a sorceress of seemingly unlimited power, held the King under an evil spell, and he refused to see them. Meantime, the dragon fed well on the knights who had challenged him.In the end, Aversin, Jenny, and Gareth had to steal away at night to challenge Morkeleb, largest and wisest of dragons.But that was only the beginning of the perils they must face.

4.0 Vencer Al Dragon
More like 4 1/2, really.I wasn't very into it at the beginning, but then halfway through I really started to enjoy it a lot more and ended up loving it.However, my edition sucked. Lots of commas in really weird places and such editorial blunders.

Smart characters, real psychological depth, and great action sequences. Very much recommended. For the complete review, please go here:http://ww...
