Lincoln and the Dragon | [Scott William Carter]

Lincoln and the Dragon

Although this fact is well known among historians, what is not known is what else happened that day - when a deranged, dimension-hopping descendant of a Confederate general attempted to assassinate Lincoln long before he became the 16th President of the United States.

Publisher's Summary

The fateful first of January. That's how Abraham Lincoln described New Year's Day in 1841, the day he temporarily broke off his engagement with Mary Todd.

Although this fact is well known among historians, what is not known is what else happened that day - when a deranged, dimension-hopping descendant of a Confederate general attempted to assassinate Lincoln long before he became the 16th President of the United States.

When the madman's plan goes awry, Lincoln finds himself stranded in the land of Howander, a world populated by brave knights, drafty castles, and a princess terribly scarred by a one-eyed dragon who's promised to return for her on her upcoming birthday. As he finds himself falling for the princess, Lincoln must make a choice: stay and fight the dragon, or heed the call of his dark dreams, which offer him tantalizing glimpses of his native country's future - a country which may need a hero even more than this one.

Scott William Carter's first novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, was hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "touching and impressive debut." His short stories have appeared in dozens of popular magazines and anthologies, including Asimov's, Analog, Ellery Queen, Realms of Fantasy, and Weird Tales. He lives in Oregon with his wife, two children, and thousands of imaginary friends.

    Story
    "Good story well told."
    Where does Lincoln and the Dragon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    We listen to audiobooks quite often and this ranks very high with the narrator's ablility to draw in and hold the attention of the listener. The character voices were consistent and inventive, also clearly defined.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that is was about the hard choices that people have to make, knowing there are tradeoffs when we choose.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lincoln met the black man Rashon who was wanting to give him a hint of his role in the future, but couldn't say much because of the Code.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Lincoln had to choose between the love that was easy and natural (the Princess) and the love that would be more difficult (Mary Todd).


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this fun book to people of all ages. I would like to listen to more books by this great narrator, Gary L. Willprect as well.
