Overview

Peregrine, bastard son of King Paladrine, thought he had trouble when he was transformed by a sorcerer into a falcon. In fact, his real troubles began when the prepubescent Princess Ruby accidentally changed him back into...well, almost a prince: A bastard.

Whereupon he was dragged off by a dyspeptic dragon, smooched by a sphinx, wooed by the weefolk, and finally appointed Sub-Imperial-sub-Legate, which is still not quite a prince, but somewhat more elegant than a bastard....

Rich in an exotic sense of place and love of strange incident, this second book in the Peregrine series is a dryly and exuberantly funny peregrination through the lighter side of the dark ages.

What People are Saying About This

Scott McLetchie

Avram Davidson's novels Peregrine: Primus and Peregrine: Secundus are quite amusing, especially if you are interested in late antique religious practice.

John Clute

"[Davidson is] perhaps SF's most explicitly literary author... . It is hard to imagine the genre that could encompass him; it is even more difficult to imagine fantasy or SF without him.—The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction
