Product Description

Product Description

The folk of the city of Paladria have two passions: galley-racing and political intrigue. Into this environment comes Mirko Ascalon, a disgraced former galley-master from the nearby realm of Garganet. Mirko accepts a commission to train the crew of Serendipity, the galley of ambitious politician Bartazan of Bartazan House. Soon Mirko begins to realise the scope of the task facing him: his crew is inept and demotivated, Bartazan is planning to use the galley as a tool in his political ambitions; and Mirko's decision to sell information to Bartazan's rivals is unlikely to improve matters. Can he make Serendipity a force to challenge Bartazan's invincible rival Dragonchaser? Variously described as "built on a satisfyingly solid foundation...executed with engaging brio","well built, light and resilient" and "first rate", Dragonchaser will delight all lovers of literate fantasy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Racing Spies or Spies Racing? 23 Jan 2011
By KeaLaw - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Overall a fun read. I like the fact that they are no elves or elves called by another name. Spying and racing take up most of the story. Some nice twists and plenty of intrigue kept me turning the pages without skipping any.

Try the long sample and decide for yourself if you want to pay the 3 bucks to continue reading. I did and enjoyed the rest of the book as much as I did the sample.


Of course you already know the outcome of the race. But it is fun watching the main character move the plot along. The ending was better than I expected with the main character ending up making the right choice.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dragonchaser - fires on all cylinders 12 Jun 2014
By Fernando - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I consider Jack Vance to be one of the great prose fiction writers. I have savored nearly everything he has written. Reading Vance can, at times, evoke in me a heightened emotional state. Tim's first two novels, Zael Inheritance and Dragonchaser, took me to the same place. Dragonchaser is the second Stretton novel I have read. I really enjoyed the Zael Inheritance, but Dragonchaser is even better. While Tim Stretton's writing is influenced by Jack Vance, I would not consider him derivative. He has his own voice. Can't wait to read Dog of the North, will review when finished. Keep them coming Tim!

For the most part I enjoyed it. It moves along briskly and is fairly exciting. Other than the heavy handed use of a thesaurus it's very enjoyable.
