Perhaps the last book to be released by Robert Asprin, it lacks some of the humor that usually accompanies his work. In place of humor and creativity is an underlying sense of sexual tension that sets this volume apart from the other two dragon books and his works in general. Once again, Griffin McCandles is facing an unseen adversary; but unlike the other two books, Griffen displays only fleeting concerns to the serious problems facing him and his future, focusing instead on immediate pleasures ...more
This is one of those series my Dad and I picked up and read together (as in, one of us reads the book then passes it to the other, not aloud). And we couldn't figure out why, after the second book, there wasn't another one coming out. It was only with this book that I found out Robert Asprin had passed away, which made me very sad.

This book, while slower paced than the first two, really continues the series well. It looks more at Griffen's gambling operation and, for the first time in the series

I loved it. I like the series. I like New Orleans and Mardi Gras. I thought the plot was interesting and how expensive it is to be in the parade. There were spots where you could tell that Asprin didn't write the whole thing as he did the first two, but I find it very likely that he at least outlined and planned the story. I was so sorry when he died. I had hopes for the Dragon series as a strong alternative to the Skeeve and Aaze stories. But at least the third lives up to the expectations. I r ...more

I regret the loss of Robert Asprin. Dragons Deal while bringing some items together left me hanging. Griffen gets a call from his uncle Malcolm who is upset that his sister went shopping with Melinda. Then when he checks there is no answer on his sister's phone. Suddenly his sister is missing and the last question of the book is: Where were they? With everything that has gone on before the book still leaves too many questions still to be answered. Hope someone can finish up the series. Hope ever ...more
Dragon's Deal By Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye is the next in The Dragons Wild series. In this book Griffen must handle a pregnant sister, tweo girl freinds, Mardi Gras and an attempted coup. A good read for modern dragon lovers.
Yes, yes, yes! I thought after Asprin died the series would never have a conclusion, but now it does. Thank you.

I just finshed it and it haves a plot twist, awesome!!!
Not the best in the series, of course it wasn't all Asprin's writing. Still I've enjoyed Jody Lynn Nye's writing in the past. This book is only so-so.

A bit tiresome at times but still a good read.
It's fun but the loss of Asprin is palpable.
