The blurb

The small town of Ravenswood Bridge has a problem – a large, scaly, fire breathing problem. Once a year a huge green dragon named Valfalgar turns up and decides to fly around setting fires left, right and centre. This year however will be different; the prophet Garderobe has spoken, the monster will be no more and the good people will be saved for they have a champion, a chosen one, a hero… or at least, that’s how the plan was meant to go before Rispin Quill got involved.

Review quotes from

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from a new author but found this a really well written story that grabbed my interest from the start. The characters are great fun and likeable. The dialogue between the dragon and hero is hilarious. Well worth the money and I’m looking forward to the next in the series. If you like fantasy then I would recommend this.”


If you like Terry Pratchett books then you will love this fantasy adventure story. It has memorable and often hilarious characters, particularly our hero, Rispin Quill (great name by the way). A very enjoyable read and I cannot wait for the next one.”


I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. Full of suspense and anticipation. Lots of colourful characters and fantastic dialogue. Highly recommend if you want a good fun fantasy read.”
