Dragon Removal Service
Sure, the dragon is dead, and the Sorcerer is defeated. But with all the silly left-over magic running around the kingdom, things are ‘worser-than-worse’. Who’s going to clean it all up?
Eleven-year-old Gulchima Brixby thinks she’s the girl for the job. She’s just inherited the family construction company, and they need the money. If they don’t find work soon, they’re all headed for the same debtor’s prison where her parents are held.
So against the advice of her sister and uncles, Gulchima signs a contract to clean up all the left-over magic in the kingdom’s biggest town.
Fairy poo in the factory? Swan-maidens under the bridge? Pumpkins that strangle you in your sleep… How hard could it be? It’s only magic.
But there’s one major problem: the town has a dead dragon. And dead dragons can only be moved with magic. But magic is illegal. Magic gets you put in prison. Magic voids the contract.
Sure, it’s impossible. But Gulchima is eleven now, and besides, it’s only magic.
The job couldn’t be that hard. Could it?
This humorous fantasy will appeal to fans of Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books (Discworld Novels) and Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. E.C. Stever is the author of several fantasy and science-fiction collections. This is his first novel.
