Publisher's Summary

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.

a good start with no end

it had all the flavor one expects from a fantasy book of its time, and despite its length, it was very filling. Still a disappointment to find that the other parts of the series were unavailable. Warn a guy the next time you pull something like this, audible. Don't wet my appetite when you can't serve the main course.

Delightful characters with great interactions. Insightful, lovely, lyrical, familiar yet unique. Well worth your time. I wish the rest were available on Audible, yet this one stands satisfactorily alone.
