Once known as Wyvern, Lord Highfire of the Eyrie and scourge of humankind, ‘Vern’ is now the last of his kind: a vodka-swigging dragon hiding out in a Louisiana swamp binging on Netflix. That is, until the accidental arrival of Everett ‘Squib’ Moreau, a teenage delinquent on the run from the corrupt local sheriff. Suddenly, Vern has a taste of his glory days, as together they face humanity’s worst criminals in this hilarious, action-packed romp through the bayou.

From the internationally bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series: Eoin Colfer's first adult fantasy novel is a hilarious, high-octane adventure about a vodka-drinking, Flashdance-loving dragon who's been hiding out from the world - and potential torch-carrying mobs - in a Louisiana bayou . . . until his peaceful world's turned upside down by a well-intentioned but wild Cajun tearaway and the crooked (and heavily armed) law officer who wants him dead.

Squib Moreau may be swamp-wild, but his intentions are (generally) good: he really wants to be a supportive son to his hard-working momma Elodie. But sometimes life gets in the way - like when Fake Daddy walked out on them leaving a ton of debt, or when crooked Constable Regence Hooke got to thinking pretty Elodie Moreau was just the gal for him . . .

An apprenticeship with the local moonshine runner, servicing the bayou, looks like the only way to pay off the family debts and maybe get Squib and his momma a place in town, far from Constable Hooke's unwanted courtship and Fake Daddy's reputation.

Unfortunately for Squib, Hooke has his own eye on that very same stretch of bayou - and neither of them have taken into account the fire-breathing dragon hiding out in the Louisiana swamp . . .

For Squib Moreau, Regence Hooke and Vern, aka Lord Highfire of Highfire Eyrie, life is never going to be the same again.

HIGHFIRE: A triumphant genre-bending tour-de-force of comedy and action by the million-copy-selling master storyteller
