This series has become one of my all time favorites. It reads like a murder mystery, but it has magical elements. It is in a medieval setting, and the murders all involve magic. The lead character, Liam Rhenford, is not a magician but he has inherited the possesions of a wizard who was murdered, including his familiar, a miniature dragon named Fanuilh.
If I had to pick a favorite book, this would be it. It's a set of three books: Fanuilh, Wizard's Heir, and Beggar's Banquet. The main character, Liam, solves crimes/mysteries and it's all in a fantasy setting (as implied by the title). I've read them over and over again and they never get old.

I like these stories but wish that there was more interaction between Liam & Fanuilh. Having a mini-dragon as one's familiar would be the best!!

I enjoyed all 3 of the books. This is the second time for these books; however, I read them years ago, so had forgotten most of the plots!
If you like Mystery and Fantasy then you'll like this book!
I couldnt put it down!!
