A really good story told in the traditional way of an epic. Develops the story really well, revealing all in good time. I definitely hope that there is more to come!

Owen Thorskard, a dragon-slayer in training, and Siobhan McQuaid, a young musician chosen to tell his tale, team up to save their small town from an ever-increasing dragon threat. Set in a contemporary world where dragons thrive on carbon emissions, this is an adventurous and eloquent modern-day epic tale that will appeal to both teen and adult readers.

"Once, dragon slaying was a noble calling, with slayers guarding their neighbours from ferocious, carbon-hungry dragons. These days, however, most slayers work for big cities and corporations. That's why the citizens of Trondheim, a tiny town in rural Ontario, are so grateful for the protection of a renowned family of slayers like the Thorskards. It's also why Siobahn, a gifted musician, agrees to become bard (and algebra tutor) to trainee slayer Owen Thorskard and to join his family's campaign to return dragon slaying to its roots. Similar to The last dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde, this modern, inventive spin on dragon lore will enchant readers with its strong characters, quirky humour, and intricate world-building."
