Publisher's Summary

Although she's an orphan in indentured servitude, 16-year-old Jennifer Strange is pretty good at her job of managing the unpredictable crew at Kazam Mystical Arts Management. She already solved the Dragon Problem, avoided mass destruction by Quarkbeast, and helped save magic in the Ununited Kingdoms. Yet even Jennifer may be defeated when the long-absent Mighty Shandar makes an astonishing appearance and commands her to find the Eye of Zoltar - proclaiming that if she fails, he will eliminate the only two dragons left on earth.

How can a teenage non-magician outdo the greatest sorcerer the world has ever known? But failure is unacceptable, so Jennifer must set off for the mysterious Cadir Idris in the deadly Cambrian Empire - a destination with a fatality index of 50 percent.

With the odds against them, will Jennifer and her traveling companions ever return to the Kingdom of Snodd?

Good Fforde

I started this book fearing the third book in the series may have gone a bit soft (as some of the late Thursday Next books seem stretching). It seemed like some rapidly repeated schtick but that ended up being the reestablishment of the continued story line. The book then quickly shifted to good fresh Fforde story telling. Always inventive and fun with plenty for the mind to chew on. Narration is as good as previous Dragon Slayers. Good use of accents and voices.

Jasper Fforde never disappoints me

I am utterly entertained and always sad when the book is done. His wit is priceless and he keeps me chuckling as I drive to and from work. I am sure it is concerning to those driving on the roads with me.

Another fun Jasper Fforde book

This is another fun book in the Chronicles of Kazam series, full of strange characters, unexpected twists and enjoyable silliness.

Just gets better and better

Ah Jasper, you are as funny and witty as you are steeped in eloquent writing and wordplay. I love your characters, and your plots and I also love your narrator. The performances are unrivaled.

This is book three and it's not at all the last we will hear of Jenny, the dragons, Kazam and the new found friends we find along this part of the story's journey. It's a fun frolic that you won't want to miss a minute of.

if you like smart English humor and fantasy adventures along the lines of Terry Pratchett , then don't wait another minute and download this book now! I just hate waiting for the next book in the series!

Good for family

I listened to this with my husband and our two sons eight and 13 years old. As with the first two books in the series, we all enjoyed it. Can't wait for the 4th book!

wonderfully made story love the characters

the narrator's female voices could get a little grating
but hey who am I to criticize?
I can't do all those voices myself !
just that I had to go in the other room because the princess and once magnificent boo's high voices were bugging my husband and son.
I was enjoying the story too much to care.

Another Ffordian Treat

I always enjoy Jasper Fford's silly stories. My only complaint about this is that the narrator's voice sounded too old for the character she was reading. She would have been better suited for the voice of Tuesday Next.

I find myself laughing out loud on occasion

I enjoyed this. I am a big "enjoyer" of puns (just so you know, bad puns are how eye-roll...lol).

It was entertaining and I will definitely listen to it again!
