The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

Narrated by: Elizabeth Jasicki

I stumbled on this multiple times before I decided to give it a shot also since I once again forgot that the next two books were not available to me at this time, I will probably only listening to this one and may look out for the others.

That may seem like an ominous start to a review, but I must admit that I enjoyed the book. It felt the perfect introduction to someone younger deciding to try out the fantasy genre. We meet a world where magic is dying, and one of the last holdouts are corralled into organizations. One such organization is being run by a foundling. She is doing a good job, and a new foundling is delivered to them and Jennifer and Tiger then bond as a team because things are shaking up. There is a prophecy that the last dragon is to be slain, and that has everyone worked up.

It was this latter aspect that was the tongue-in-cheek commentary about the priorities people in our current world, and it was done in a simple enough fashion that I am sure inquisitive minds will find it. This is probably the main reason I might recommend it to my nieces(my nephew would have to wait a few more years for me to suggest it to him) in the coming years. It has a teenage girl set up in a precarious situation who listens to her gut against adversities bigger and stronger than her (at least in the very beginning).

My last KU review was Dead Stop (Sydney Rose Parnell #2) by Barbara Nickless, and I stopped listening to Expose at some point, so my queue went through another change
