The Dragon Business
is a humorous fantasy caper, with a group of medieval con artists who offer
their services as dragon slayers, whether the kingdom needs them or not.
Sir Dalbry, the leader of the group, is a lord knight who
was scammed out of his own lands and fortunes, and though he learned honor and
the ways of being a knight, he thinks the rest of the world has forgotten it. He
now travels the land perpetrating his own cons to get even with the treacherous
nobility and to earn his fortune back.
Reeger is his right-hand-man, facilitator, although rough
around the edges and full of off-color jokes. He does the group’s dirty work,
from paying off peasants to digging up graves whenever a fresh skull might be
useful as a prop.
Affonyl, a disenfranchised princess who faked her own death
to avoid marrying an evil duke, is a naturalist and alchemist who understands
enough about chemistry and physics that she is seen as a witch.
And then there’s Cullin, an innocent orphan without any
prospects who falls in with the group. All he wants is to save enough money to
book passage aboard a ship, sail to the New Lands, and set up a small farmstead
of his own.
But things don’t always turn out as expected.
