9780007304967: The Dragon-Charmer

English fantasy at its best, The Dragon-Charmer follows the exciting debut from Jan Siegel, Prospero’s Children.

Twelve years have passed since the traumatic events of Prospero’s Children, and Fern Capel has succeeded in putting aside the memory of that magical, terrifying summer. More tellingly, she has repressed the ancient heritage that will allow her mastery of the Gift.

But the past is about to catch up with her. Fern is soon to wed Marcus Greig – some twenty years her senior – and he has decided that they should be married at the Capel’s summer home in Yarrowdale. When Fern returns to the house with her best friend, Gaynor, ancient forces are awoken once more, and Fern will find that she is once again forced to choose between love and destiny.

The Dragon-Charmer continues the lyrical, richly atmospheric and enthralling tale begun in Prospero’s Children. Spellbinding in its depiction of places both familiar and strange, of characters both magical and sinister, it is classic English fantasy at its finest.

Review:

‘A piece of pure magic – a charming, eccentric, and powerfully imaginative work of fantasy which will enchant readers for years to come.’
Clive Barker

‘A lyrical, captivating first novel of mermaids, magic, lost worlds and found souls. Once read, this book will not be forgotten’
Terry Brooks

From the Back Cover:

Twelve years have passed since the traumatic events that took place in 'Prospero's Children', and it seems that Fern Capel has almost succeeded in putting aside the memory of the magical, terrifying summer, when she fought a witch, fell in love, and made a deal with a demon. More tellingly, she has denied the ancient heritage that will allow her the mastery of the Gift.

But the past is about to catch up with her. Fern is soon to marry the academic and media personality, Marcus Grieg – some twenty years her senior – and he has decided that they should hold the wedding at Capel's summer home in Yarrowdale. When Fern returns to the house with her best friend, Gaynor, she finds that she is once again forced to between love and destiny.

For her arrival not only re-awakens the interest of Azmordis, the Oldest Spirit: it also draws her to the attention of a being more dangerous than he. Imprisoned in a time out of time, beneath a colossal Tree laden with the heads of the dead, waits one who has been searching for Fern for millennia, and covets the Gift that will free her form exile.

As her pursuers draw ever closer, Fern must make a choice; either to marry Marcus and face a lifetime of devoid of magic and wonder, or embrace her Gift, forcing her in to a supernatural conflict which will put the lives of those she holds dear at risk. With time running out, her only hope lies with the deadly, hypnotic and legendary, Dragon-Charmer

'The Dragon Charmer' continues the lyrical, richly atmospheric and enthralling tale begun in 'Prospero's Children'. Spellbinding in its depiction of places both familiar and strange, of characters both magical and sinister, it is classic English fantasy at its finest.
