Genre: fantasy

My favorite dragon PI, Vern, is back in Let and Let Fly, a delightful spy spoof by Karina Fabian.Laced with tongue-in-cheek humor, this adventure tale is loaded with sparkling dialogue, and Clifford Simak followers will enjoy the lighthearted crossing of Faerie and Mundane as the “Sam Spade” of dragon detectives uses his talents in the real world.
Vern, a reformed dragon and his partner, Sister Grace take on an innocuous amusement company which serves as a cover for evil overlord antics of world domination – not just the mundane world, but faerie as well.
I’m not a fan of first person stories, but there’s just something likable?, lovable?, intriguing about getting inside a dragon’s head. Especially this one with his whimsical, sometimes pointed, perception of human versus faerie lifestyles.
Vern’s idea of the perfect working day? “The usual Monday morning activity: drug busts, thefts and muggings, the occasional prostitute. No magic. No mad science. No evil demigods bent on world domination. My kind of busy.”
My kind of dragon tale. This is a keeper and one well worth re-reading.
How you look at the world, depends on where you are.
