Incredible review at Paste Magazine! Truly an in depth look at the book and a love letter to DRAGONS.

Read a free chapter of the long-lost dragon book by The Last Unicorn author Peter Beagle

“Peter S Beagle is, as ever, a master. Like the dragons and dreams therein – gorgeous and vibrant and wistfully fantastic – he never neglects the sharp teeth that confirm a tale as absolutely real.”

–Travis Baldree, New York Times bestselling author of Legends and Lattes

“Beagle’s cozy novel embraces over-the-top fantasy tropes, and the effect is a tale that’s as hilarious as it is endearing. Evocative of Terry Pratchett, the writing grows beyond its charming aesthetic to deliver a deceptively serious narrative.”

– Library Journal

“A novel that is as much fun as its title suggests, but with the darker nuances that have always given Beagle’s fiction an unexpected gravitas, and a depth of character that – again a Beagle trademark – manages to turn archetypes into living, breathing figures.”

– Locus Magazine

“A riveting adventure…Beagle’s latest coming-of-age tale will charm readers.”

– Booklist

“A rip-roaring standalone fantasy…the resulting adventure offers surprises and humor aplenty alongside a hefty dose of classic dragon lore. Beagle’s fans will feel this was worth the wait.”

– Publishers Weekly

“Peter Beagle is an icon in the world of fantasy fiction…its charming characters and cozy high fantasy vibes are worth the wait.”
