Publisher's Summary

It sounds insane, but asking a young dragon to watch over a flock of magical sheep might just be Timmy’s ticket to financial freedom.

To earn his pardon and help Everton win the war against the Eternal Empire, Timmy - Grand Necromancer extraordinaire - has his work cut out for him.

Thankfully, he’s not alone. He has an elite team of questionable characters to help him turn the tide: There’s his pint-sized apprentice who dreams of becoming the Supreme Necromancer. It’s a pity she’s more adorable than menacing. There’s the pyromaniacal elf who isn’t into saving the innocent so much as she’s into smiting (and robbing) the wicked. There’s the ancient vampire whose penchant for getting stabbed has led to a drastic reduction in her wardrobe. There’s the legendary swordsman who’s so legendary that he might actually die of old age instead of meeting his end in battle. There’s the timid bureaucrat whose knack for almost getting eaten is matched only by his knack for paperwork. There’s the dwarf who wants to build a golem so huge it can make a dragon cry uncle. And then there’s the young dragon whose hunger knows no bounds.

Nobody is safe. Not pineapples. Not bandits. Not even giant, mutant cows. Timmy and the gang aren’t the heroes anyone expected, but they’ll get the job done. Somehow. With plenty of property damage.

The Sheep Dragon is a collection of 14 short stories set before, during, and after the first four parts of The Unconventional Heroes series. Each story addresses questions of world-shaking importance like: Is it possible for a young dragon to watch over a flock of sheep without those sheep ending up in his stomach? What do necromancers actually do at necromancer conventions? And what is the best way to deal with a surprise demonic invasion?

This series is extremely entertaining

I have found every single book in the series captivating. I cannot wait for the next one. The narrator Fred Berman is excellent.

Another!

These books can’t come out fast enough. From The hystericallyfunny
Fairy Tale, to the adorable Sheep Dragon, to the epic tale that is the Prodigy, this anthology is perfect. If you have follow Timmy and Company this far, come a little farther. This one is awesome!

Sheer Delight!

One of my favorite authors and this short story collection ably demonstrates why that is....funny, sweet, adorable, and we're talking about necromancy, zombies, monsters, lots of killing, and oh, fashion sense. My kinda humor! (Until I started this series I stayed far, far away from zombies but if they stay absurd and non carnivorous I'm good.) Definitely read\listen to this book. If you haven't read any if the series yet, start with A Necromancer, A Bureaucrat, and and Elf and enjoy!!!

Maybe Even Better than the Main Story

I really love these ".5" books. They are jammed packed with bite-sized stories that gives us an even deeper look at the already well developed and we'll loved characters of this series. There are many hints in this book as to what some of the younger characters may become, so I'm very curious and excited to see what becomes of Katie and Spot particularly. Hopefully this series will continue long enough to cover that. There are also hints of the escalating war, and to be honest, I am less excited for the series to cover that. Hopefully the author will have our friends work to largely foil the war, which would be more entertaining for me than countless books covering the fighting, but I trust in the author to create more great books regardless. At any rate, just listen to this one as it is excellent as always.

Love this!

Honestly, even though I enjoyed the other books in the series I didn’t love them. This story made me love the characters so much that I had to reread the other books in the series. My only hope though is that the author doesn’t end up making Tommy too perfect, etc. as the series goes on the way authors tend to do.

Fun stories brought to life by a great narrator

I love the characters and how tge narrator brings them to life. But beware this is book 4.5 in the series so won't make much sense on its own.

This book does not really add anything to the story line but it is interesting in character development and maybe clues in which direction it is heading .

Another great book from L.G. Estrella

Really enjoyed! As with the other books it is fun and light but with enough intrigue and excitement to keep you hooked. Fred Berman is great as Timmy and keeps it interesting.

Laugh and cry

This series of mini stories had me rolling on the floor, in tears of sadness and genuine happiness.
Timmy, Amanda, Kady and team aren't just characters, the detail makes them people you want to imagine as actually existing. The sheer amount research to make whole people who they are, flaws, tragic back history and all, is fantastic. The point of a series is to have a conclusion, but as much as I love these books (second listening coming up in 5, 4, 3,2...)I don't want to see a book 5.
I don't think my heart could take it

I really rather quite like this series, a bit

All the usual crew doing their thing. You get a bit more of an insight into back stories for some and more of the same from others.
Enough about that, when's book 5 coming out? Hurry up 😁👍

Was ok .

I’m a big fan of this series but this one fell way short . I’ll continue to buy as they are published without hesitation but don’t expect this to be on par with the earlier ones .

Brilliant

This collection of short stories are excellent and touching. I loved the White tiger named Barry. Fred is an excellent narrator and his voice talent for this book continues to sell me on his work and that of the author.
