In the good old days, magic was powerful, unregulated by government, and even the largest spell could be woven without filling in magic release form B1-7g.
Then the magic started fading away. Powerful wizards who once controlled the weather now did home improvements, plumbing and wiring, drain unblocking and mole charming
I run Kazam, an employment agency for sorcerers. Work is drying up. Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and even magic carpets are now reduced to pizza deliveries.
So it was a surprise when Kevin's visions started. Not only did they predict the death of the Last Dragon by a Dragonslayer, they also suggest that I might have something to do with it.
It was a something that comes one in twenty lifetimes and changes everything for the good - or bad. Something like ... A Big Magic.
The question was, Who was the Dragonslayer? and do they have what it takes to kill the Last Dragon?
In the days that followed my face appeared on tee-shirts, badges, commemorative mugs and posters. I made front page news, appeared on TV and was even a special guest on The Yogi Baird Show.
Two people tried to kill me, I was threatened with jail, had sixteen offers of marriage and was outlawed by King Snodd.
Today you will have not heard of me...
Welcome to the Last Dragonslayer mini-site. There are four titles in the series:
The Last Dragonslayer (2010)
In which we meet Jennifer Strange, learn about Kazam and a Dragon is despatched
but not without magnificent events that lead on to a Big Magic.
The Song of the Quarkbeast (2011)
The King wants to control magic and use it for his own ends, but Jennifer and Kazam will not
let that happen, and we learn what may happen if Quarkbeasts collide.
The Eye of Zoltar (2013)
Jennifer goes on what is emphatically not a quest in the Cambrian Empire. She finds the mysterious
Eye of Zoltar and also learns a thing or two about Jeopardy Tourism.
The Great Troll War (2021)
A ramshackle band of humans hold out against the Troll invaders led by Jennifer Strange. An evil mastermind
is plotting a dastardly plan, and all seems hopeless. Or is it?
All of the site can be accessed from the menu bar at the top of the page. There are details about each book, places to order it, and in the Special Features section, a host of extra information about Jennifer's world.
