New Release: ‘The Dragon Business’ by Kevin J. Anderson

Kevin J. Anderson has a new serial out called The Dragon Business. The eight part serial will be released on a weekly basis starting today. You can get the whole thing for just a $1.99 on Amazon.

King Cullin may be known as “the Dragon Slayer,” but he fears his son’s legacy will be as “King Maurice Who Speaks with Proper Grammar.” The boy keeps his nose buried in parchments, starry-eyed at the idea of noble knights and eager to hand royal gold to any con man hawking a unicorn horn. Tonight, though, Cullin will educate the prince in the truth behind minstrels’ silly songs of glory…

Long ago, in a kingdom, well, not that far from here really, young Cullin traveled the countryside as squire to brave Sir Dalbry, along with Dalbry’s trusted sidekick Reeger, selling dragon-protection services to every kingdom with a coffer. There were no dragons, of course, but with a collection of severed alligator heads and a willingness to play dirty, the trio of con men was crushing the competition. Then along came Princess Affonyl.

Tomboyish and with a head for alchemy, Affonyl faked a dragon of her own, escaped her arranged marriage, and threw in with Cullin and company. But with her father sending a crew of do-gooder knights to find her, the dragon business just got cutthroat.

What happens when you write a sequel for a story by ditching the main character and replacing him with the equivalent of a futuristic female samurai? The result is Matadora. In this book, Steve Perry follows up The Man Who Never Missed with a character focus on one of his students. Dirisha goes from wandering samurai to curious student to a believer of a cause.
