Dragonsbane Author:Barbara Hambly Young Gareth, a courtier in the King's court, has taken it upon himself to journey to the Northlands to find the last remaining Dragonsbane and enlist him to kill the horrible dragon that has been terrorizing the city and surrounding countryside. He happens upon Jenny Waynest, a witch who saves him from bandits and is, to his horror, the lover o... more »f the very man he's looking for: John.
Many of Gareth's illusions and misconceptions shatter as he finds John vastly different from everything he has heard in the ballads. John barely survived the last dragon he killed, and he's not eager to go after another one. He feels, though, that he must; maybe then the king will be indebted to him, which would bring much needed aid to the Northlands withdrawn by the king's grandfather many years ago. Jenny foresees horrible events and decides she must come with them. But are Court politics more dangerous than any dragon? And who is this powerful wizard woman who makes Jenny, a woman who has given up becoming a master of magic to bear John's children, extremely jealous? Strange alliances form as the true enemy shifts, and this may be the last ride of any Dragonsbane.« less
