Another story sparkling with wit and humor from New York Times best-selling author Mercedes Lackey.
Traditionally, marauding dragons are soothed only by a virgin sacrifice. And so practical-minded Princess Andromeda - with the encouragement of her mother's court - reluctantly volunteers to do her duty, asking only for a sword to defend herself. Well, her offer is accepted, but the weapon isn't forthcoming, and so Andromeda faces the dragon alone.
Until a Champion arrives to save her - sort of. Sir George doesn't quite defeat the dragon, but as Andromeda finishes rescuing herself she discovers that beneath the Good Knight's well-meaning though inexperienced heroics lies a further tale… Still, Andromeda can't leave her seacoast country in further jeopardy from the dragon's return, and so she and…er… George join to search for the dragon's lair. But even - especially - in the Five Hundred Kingdoms, bucking with Tradition isn't easy. It takes the strongest of wills, more than a hint of stubbornness, quick thinking and a refusal to give up, no matter what happens along the way.

Not exactly what I expected
I expect a good story from Mercedes and I was not disappointed. You come to expect certain things from fairy-tales, What I did not expect was how I burst out laughing when the unicorns came. The reaction to them and someone being "outed" by them was something I hadn't considered. The performance and story still makes me smile a week later. I simply must have the next book in the series.
