First in the series that’s a breath of hot airfrom the New York Times bestselling author of the Phule’s Company and Myth books.
A low-stakes con artist and killer poker player, Griffen McCandles drifted through college, always taking for granted that there’d be a family job waiting for him after he graduated. He just never suspected what his family was
His mysterious uncle drops the bomb: Griffen and his sister, Valerie, are dragonsand almost purebred ones to boot. 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
“Dragons Wild is a lot more straightforward urban fantasy, complete with the semi-standard trappings of a secret race of supernatural beings dwelling amongst, and influencing, normal people. But Asprin pulls it off with skill and style, delivering a thoroughly satisfying, energetic story that begs for continuation. In fact, it’s actually one of the best things I’ve ever read from him, in terms of entertainment and atmospheric value…Is it fun? Oh yes.”—The Green Man Review
“Asprin tackles a new kind of comic fantasy, a little more serious and hard-boiled than previous books.”—Library Journal
“This is the start of what looks like will be a great urban fantasy series that is funky, funny, and fun…Robert Asprin has begun another fine myth with his first entry in his wild dragon culture.”—Midwest Book Review
