The Last Dragonslayer by Jaspar Fforde is a fabulous book. Jennifer Strange is the heroine, a strong character whose moral compass makes her extremely likeable. Add in the elements of orphans, magic, dragons, witches and wizards and you have a fantastic story topped only by Jaspar Fforde’s dry wit and excellent storytelling. His imagination is truly brilliant. You could describe him as a modern day Douglas Adams but I think he’s even better, in a league of his own. A truly gifted story teller whose books can be read again and again. The Last Dragonslayer is the first in a trilogy describing Jennifer Strange’s adventures. The books are aimed at a younger audience but as with Harry Potter, are timeless and classic. Guaranteed to make you laugh and leave y0u wanting more.
