Jim Eckert loves his wife Angie who accompanied him when he left the world of his birth and being a mathematician to enter this medieval world. His new home is similar to the history of his old home, but some variance exists. Jim is an apprentice to one of the realm¿s three only AAA+ Magickians, Carolinus. His mentor is worried that the English King will die soon and assigns Jim to prevent that from happening at any cost.

However, whether he occupies the relatively stupid dragon Gorbash or remains in human form, Jim finds himself dealing with three global disasters. In his birth environs the plague reached Italy a few years later than the foothold it has attained in his new home. France and much of the continent is ravaged. The deadly disease is coming to England soon via a horde of goblins. The Plantagenet dynasty has moved into Jim¿s Malecontri castle, proving that a man¿s home is his monarch¿s castle. Finally, war seems eminent and Jim will be thrust into the middle of the conflict if he is not more careful.

Any time a Dragon novel is released, fantasy readers know they are receiving the very best in the genre. Award winning Gordon R. Dickson keeps his hero fresh while altering fourteenth century history to provide a taut but often amusing story line. THE DRAGON AND THE FAIR MAID OF KENT retains the triumphant nature of the previous novels, which says a lot because the Dragon tales are one of the all time best and long running series in any genre.

I accidentally picked up 'Dragon in Lyoness' in an airport. About 100 pages into it, I realized that this was a part of series of books. Upon return from my trip, I purchased the first couple of books (The dragon and the George, and 'The Dragon Knight') 3 days later I was back at the store buying the other 6 books available. Can't wait for the next one... no fantasy book has been the same since I started reading Dickson. I feel like I've know Jim (Baron James Eckert DuBois de Mellencountry et Riveroak) and the gang, for years. The character development is wonderful, and the plot twists bring out a constant roller coaster of emotions. Mr. Dickson.. if you are reading this... keep up the excellent work. Looking forward to many more Dragon books.

I have always highly enjoyed reading the Dragon series, although it has often gone into territory highly tread, and I am certain this one will be just as good as the others. Keep your fingers, toes, elbows, and eyes crossed.
