Here there be dragons...and the denizens of Ankh-Morpork wish one huge firebreather would return from whence it came. Long believed extinct, a superb specimen of draco nobilis ("noble dragon" for those who don't understand italics) has appeared in Discworld's greatest city. Not only does this unwelcome visitor have a nasty habit of charbroiling everything in its path, in rather short order it is crowned King (it is a noble dragon, after all...).

This is a fantastic book, as most of Pratchett's are. It reads somewhat like a serious fantasy novel, while at the same time being completely ridiculous.

This is where the Guards series starts. The first day with Sam Vimes. Chaos, magic, dragons, and good fun.
