Liaden: Dragon in Exile
Relocated to Surebleak, the Dragon - the banished star-trading Clan Korval - is under contract to keep the Port Road open to all traffic, and to back the New Bosses in imposing law and order on a society originally based on larceny and assassination.

Not to mention that some of Surebleak's native population liked the Old Ways just fine, and are conspiring to take down the New Bosses and the Dragon.

Children's Fantasy Literature: An Introduction
A scholarly look at the development of fantastic fiction, both written specifically for children and/or appropriated by them - from the 16th century to the 21st, across the English-speaking world. Also considers changing views on both the nature of the child and the appropriateness of fantasy for the child reader, the role of children's fantasy literature in helping to develop the imagination, and its complex interactions with issues of class, politics and gender. The text analyses hundreds of works of fiction, placing each in its appropriate context within the tradition of fantasy literature.
