When the Black Dragon seized the Deep of Ylferdun, young Gareth braved the far Winterlands to find John Aversin, Dragonsbane - the only living man ever to slay a dragon. In return for the promise of the King to send help to the Winterlands, Aversin agreed to attempt the nearly impossible feat again.
With them, to guard them on the haunted trip south, went Jenny Waynest, a half-taught sorceress and mother of Aversin's sons.
But at the decadent Court, nothing was as expected. Rebellion threatened the land. Zyerne, a sorceress of seemingly unlimited power, held the King under an evil spell, and he refused to see them. Meantime, the dragon fed well on the knights who had challenged him.
In the end, Aversin, Jenny, and Gareth had to steal away at night to challenge Morkeleb, largest and wisest of dragons.
But that was only the beginning of the perils they must face.

Didn't want to leave Jenny and the dragon

I found myself in my head all day after finishing Dragonsbane, wanting to wander off into the world of Jenny and John, and the dragon. I love Barbara Hambley's stories. I love that she has strong female characters who have both self determination and a purpose in life beyond that of a husband and children- and Jenny's dilemma is no less significant now than it was when the book was written, maybe more so. I also love a good love story - and it is a love story, even if they have been together ten years, and have two children. The narrator does a decent job, manages to get most of his phrasing right, even if he does say "nitch" for niche....

Delightful characters with great interactions. Insightful, lovely, lyrical, familiar yet unique. Well worth your time. I wish the rest were available on Audible, yet this one stands satisfactorily alone.
