This is an interesting new series by an author known for interesting off-beat, fun, easy to read books. The book centers around a brother and sister who lost their parents when younger and are in college now. They discover through a mysterious uncle that they are not entirely human, they are really part Dragon. Now that they have come of age, the rest of the Dragons in the world are taking an interest in how they turn out, and whom they owe their allegiance to.

If you enjoy Robert Asprin books this new series is more fun to read than going to Mardi Gras. It is a look at the big Easy from a point of view you would never expect. If you are a Michigan Fan, that is were the story starts. The other two books are also equally as much fun to read. Recommend the whole series.

Long before man appeared on earth, dragons ruled the planet killing off the dinosaurs and ant other species that got in their way. They looked at the newcomer humanity as harmless until it was too late, forcing the proud dragons into hiding by disguising themselves as humans. Recent Michigan University graduate Griffen McCandles thinks dragons are nothing more than a mirthful myth until his Uncle Malcolm claims that his nephew (and niece) is almost a full bred dragon and will soon come into his secondary powers. He also warns Griffen that some dragons will want him dead because of the prophecy while others will want to use and abuse him some will remain cautious observing him closely to see what powers he develops before acting.----------------- Griffen wonders what type of weed his uncle took as he does not take his relative seriously that is until his girlfriend Mai says something about dragons and vanishes. His bookie Jerome tells Griffen that he too is a dragon albeit a lesser blood and that his boss Mose wants him to head up their gambling operations in New Orleans. Griff and his sister Valerie take up the offer since the George the dragon killer has left his calling card the Knight of Swords at his door. In New Orleans Griffen begins to grow into his powers and though George followed him, there are also other local dragons using animals to spy on him. Griff realizes he has an enemy besides George who wants him dead.------------------ This is the start of what looks like will be a great urban fantasy series that is funky, funny and fun. The young dragon must learn what his powers are while trying to stay alive by avoiding the George and the unknown adversary. Griffen¿s sister is like all female dragons as she is independent, temperamental, and charming and she too must learn to control her new skills instead of just protecting her helpless male brother. Robert Asprin has begun another fine myth with his first entry in his wild dragon culture.---------------- Harriet Klausner

Robert Asprin is still a very very funny writer. The concept in this book, that some people are dragons in disguise living among us, is unusual and well thought out. someone else mentioned that it seemed rather racist, since breeding, literally bloodlines, outweighed personal merit, but I thought there were some redeeming factors. The hero wasn't raised knowing his background, and some of his success is because he doesn't react to type. But really, this is escapist fare at its best: interesting, sympathetic characters, a storyline that is fun to see unfold, and written in an excellent witty style. For top rate Asprin, I recommend the MYTH, Inc series.

While not as clever or funny as some of his other works, it's still a good read.
