Dragons Wildby Robert Asprin
Synopses & Reviews
The New York Times bestselling author scales new heights in his series of Big Easy-dwelling dragons...
Griffen McCandles is adjusting well to running his gambling operation in the French Quarter of New Orleans and to his newfound status as head dragon. Other dragons are getting a whiff of his reputation, though, and they're not happy about it. Which is why there's suddenly a hit out on him.
And, just in time for Halloween, the ghost of a voodoo queen wants Griffen to moderate a supernatural conclave. And though the strange goings-on will barely be noticed in a city used to drunken conventioneers and wild revelers, it's Griffen's chance to spread his wings-or crash and burn.
"This colorful series opener from comic fantasist Asprin (Myth-Chief) introduces lazy con artist Griffen McCandles, who got through business school on his 'charm and quick wits' and now expects to be given a job working for his uncle Malcolm's company. Then Malcolm reveals that Griffen and his sister, Valerie, are near pureblood dragons, expected to chose sides in an international battlefield of magic and ancient rivalries. With assassins and a professional dragon-slayer on their trail, Griff and Val head for New Orleans (with no mention of Hurricane Katrina) to ally with Mose, an unlicensed casino operator and leader of a band of renegade dragons who hope Griff can bring them some respect as well as power. Asprin promises much but delivers little, apparently saving his plots for later books, but with all the characters and factions now in place, the series may eventually develop into something more engaging." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
In this first novel in a brand new series, a low-stakes con artist and killer poker player, Griffen "Grifter" McCandles, learns the strange family secret: that he and his sister are actually dragons. Griffen heads to New Orleans to make a living the only way he knows how.
First in a brand new series from the New York Times bestselling creator of the Myth and Phule novels.
A low-stakes con artist and killer poker player, Griffen "Grifter" McCandles graduated college fully expecting his wealthy family to have a job waiting for him. Instead, his mysterious uncle reveals a strange family secret: Griffen and his sister, Valerie, are actually dragons.
Unwilling to let Uncle Mal take him under his wing, so to speak, Griffen heads to New Orleans with Valerie to make a living the only way he knows how. And even the criminal underworld of the French Quarter will heat up when Griffen lands in town.
