(From the publisher):
The dragon's call had come again. And Solomon Braithwaite, an aging UCLA professor specializing in Arthurian Britain, was ready to return with the Dragon to a land that could not be found on any map, the kingdom of Gryylth. Here the scholar would be transformed into a warrior in the prime of his life - Dythragor Dragonmaster, Guardian of Gryylth. But this time, Solomon would not go alone. For the Dragon had called for Solomon's assistant Suzanne to be carried off to Gryylth and metamorphosed into the tall warrior woman Alouzon Dragonmaster.
But could a twentieth-century pacifist like Suzanne survive in a world at war, and win acceptance among a people to whom women were second-class citizens? Did survival mean succumbing completely to the persona of Alouzon? And as an enemy wizard began to draw upon primal magic, could even the combined might of Dythragor's and Alouzon's Dragonswords ward off the powers that threatened to tear this world apart...?
