Definitely the sequel to Dragon's Ring, though they have separate stories. Spoilers ahead.

Like Fionn traipsing after Dilean down a strange road, and the dangers they meet there, and Fionn's realizing Meb's effect on the dog.

So. Incredibly. Good.

So! Read this other book by another author just a bit ago - it was *okay* but I just had a problem with the jester/trickster character. I WAS LEFT UNSATISFIED. This book is an example of how to do it well. Finn. Need I say more?

Meb&Finn, cue the sighs!!! I'm gonna go read more Dave Freer books, and he has a donation button on his website if you want to give him a tip. Which I did because he is just that awesome!!!

Dog and Dragon has become one of my most favorite books. The black dragon reminds me very stongly of someone I am excessively fond of, and the dog Dileas is everything I wanted my sheep dogs to be when I was a young woman. Some writers make you feel their characters exist out there, in the multiverse.

Great fun

This book is a lot like the Harry Potter ones. Magic dragons and young hero's. I'd like more like this please.

Fun read, but a little too much emphasis on how "good" the female protagonist is, but that is just one of my hot button bits lately from reading too many romance books.

It would have probably helped if I read the prequel first, but entertaining nonetheless.

A very nce one. I missed the prequel, but the tale unfolded nicely. Dogs and dragons make good adventuring partners.
