The Mighty Shandar, the most powerful wizard the world has ever seen, returns to the Ununited Kingdoms. Clearly, he didn't solve the Dragon Problem, and must hand over his fee: Eighteen dray-weights of gold. But the Mighty Shandar doesn't do refunds, and vows to eliminate the dragons once and for all - unless sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange and her sidekicks from the Kazam house of enchantment can bring him the legendary jewel, The Eye of Zoltar.
The only thing that stands in their way is a perilous journey with a 50% Fatality Index - through the Cambrian Empire to the Leviathan Graveyard, at the top of the deadly Cadir Idris mountain. It's a quest like never before, and Jennifer soon finds herself fighting not just for her life, but for everything she knows and loves...
Praise for Jasper Fforde and The Last Dragonslayer books:
"Highly recommended. Very funny" (Independent)
"[Fforde's] ripping yarn of magic in decline mashes up the usual spells-and-beasts motif with a satire on corporate cash and tabloid values." (i)
"This year's grown-up JK Rowling" (Sunday Times)
"True literary comic genius" (Sunday Express)

Jasper Fforde, endlessly inventive, always fun.
Definitely, but it is not a stand alone, you do have tk read them all. Each story builds wonderfully on the last.
It has to be the ending, read it and see if you saw that one coming? The last book in the series is going to be very interesting.
saying what happens to stuffed tourists, well you would won't you
Again the ending and the realization, of what is actually going on. And the did they didn't they survive moment.
This narrator and these books are a brilliant match. I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first two because I found one or two of the accent choices rather odd, but mostly, brilliant.
