Overview

In a world of magic and legend, three peoplekinds face their troubles together.

After a century of mining, Peregrine is tired. He is an aging dragon, deaf and weak-winged, reliant on the keen-eared weasel assistants he raises like his own children. But he has buried four of his small friends and he will outlive dear Tillian as well. Tormented by guilt, Peregrine resolves to change his career and change himself. With effort, he knows he can set his daughter-friend free.

On the same day Peregrine takes wing for a messenger job, Rose's village faces an epidemic. Dozens of her insectoid people suffer from the demon plague, gripthia -- and without enough healing magic, they will die. Young and inexperienced at her magecraft, Rose can't save her village alone. Her plea for help summons Peregrine and Tillian for flying errands and nursing the ill. To save neighbours' lives, the pair will need to part ways for the first time in Tillian's life. And however much it hurts him, Peregrine hopes they will stay separated.

    Recommended medical fantasy

    Remedy is a fantasy medical novel set in the world of Aligare. . For an introduction to the world and a description of the different races the author's website is very useful. Peregrine is a long lived dragon like creature who has spent many years working as a miner. This has lead to damage to his hearing. To assist him as an aid he has adopted a family of short lived weasel like creatures called ferrin whose high pitched voice he can still hear. Tillian his adopted daughter has spent her young life as his constant companion. Pergerine decides to change his life and return to being a messenger flying between the different villages, he worries that Tillian is wasting her short life caring for him. When starting in this new trade a plague returns to the world affecting another race of beetle like creatures called Aemet. To help a young Aemet mage Rose who has been left to care for her sick villagers Peregrine and Tillian split with Tillian left to help the medic with her healing and Peregrine to transport messages and healing crystals across the land. During this separation they come to realise that each can grow in new ways with Tillian learning healing skills and Peregrine learning that he can cope without an interpreter. Rose develops into her gift as a healer. There are several other colourful characters with their own stories intertwined. Overall this was a charming story and I look forward to reading further works from this author.
