Format: Paperback
The Book of The Three Dragons takes classic Welsh mythology and appends to it a chapter of grand heroism involving curses, gods, divine thieves and fantastically wondrous artifacts. Taking the writing style of Welsh bards and interweaving some remarkable characters, the novel plunges the reader into an epic in which the three good God-dragons of Welsh legend have their favorite artifacts (a harp, a sword and a pair of gloves) stolen from them by clever sorcerous thieves, and our hero - Son-of-the-Nameless-Beyond-Utterance - must retrieve them to save his mortal tribe and ascend to godhood.

Filled with beautiful imagery (Nameless's fight with the dragon Gwron is especially amazing), Welsh poetry and a classical style of writing that is rare these days, Three Dragons makes a spectacular, though short, foray into the worlds of Welsh legend. What makes the hero interesting is that he is a bard, and many of his opponents are bards and songsmiths as well, and both use tricks and cleverness more than brawn to overcome obstacles.
