Author of one of BuzzFeed 's Greatest Fantasy Books of 2013
In his magnificent, heroic, adventure fantasy, Dragonslayer, Duncan M. Hamilton debuts the first book in a fast-moving trilogy: a dangerous tale of lost magics, unlikely heroes, and reawakened dragons.

Once a member of the King's personal guard, Guillot dal Villevauvais spends most days drinking and mourning his wife and child. He’s astonished—and wary—when the Prince Bishop orders him to find and destroy a dragon. He and the Prince Bishop have never exactly been friends and Gill left the capital in disgrace five years ago. So why him? And, more importantly, how is there a dragon to fight when the beasts were hunted to extinction centuries ago by the ancient Chevaliers of the Silver Circle?

On the way to the capitol city, Gill rescues SolΓ¨ne, a young barmaid, who is about to be burned as a witch. He believes her innocent…but she soon proves that she has plenty of raw, untrained power, a problem in this land, where magic is forbidden. Yet the Prince Bishop believes magic will be the key to both destroying the dragon and replacingthe young, untried King he pretends to serve with a more pliable figurehead. 
Between Gill’s rusty swordsmanship and Solene’s unstable magic, what could go wrong?

My Review: Did someone say DRAGONS?  Yes ok then sign me up please!! This was one epic fantasy that I could not put down.  This new story and first in a series was amazing!! It had great POVs and wonderful character introductions and just made it so I didn't want to put it down.  The world building did feel a little lighter than I would have liked but it wasn't to bad.  I did find out as I was making up this post that this is a spin off of another series from this author.  I am excited to check it out and maybe learn more about this world.  This was a great new fantasy that I won't soon forget!
