(From the publisher):
Once again R Chetwind-Hayes transports the reader to a fantastical world where nothing as it first appears, but horror always stalks...
A party of courageous people find ways and means of entering the World of the Impossible. Here there are man-eating giants, air-attacking rocs, a magician who can turn a Prince of the Blood into a roof-haunting cat, and by no means least a monstrous two-headed dragon. Our heroes however have some help: stainless steel armour, a Bren gun, a rifle, several revolvers, and of course numerous swords, daggers and lances. But they will scarcely need those. Or will they?
Many readers will recognize the World of the Impossible, although they may not have visited it since childhood. Think back. A beautiful maiden tied to the dragon altar. Fighting the giant and his offspring. But by and large the city of Londel, where King Ludwig reigns in all his glory, is well worth visiting time and time again - so long as you are not a Prince of the Blood.
