In Jennifer Strange's world, she runs Kazam, an employment agency for sorceres. Magic is on the rocks, and jobs for sorcerors are few and far between. That changes when one of the sorcerors has a vision of the last dragon dying, and says Jennifer is involved. It turns out she's the Last Dragonslayer, a position that catapults her into fame (and infamy, very briefly) as she negotiates the demands of her new position and maintaining Kazam, complete with all the needy sorcerors.
In The Song of the Quarkbeast, we meet Jennifer and the sorcerors of Kazam again-and they find themselves being challenged to a contest that will determine the direction of the slowly building Wizidrical Power. One by one, the sorcerors of Kazam fall to accident or legal trouble, until only one newly licensed sorceror is left to meet the challenge.
These two books are well writtien, amusing, and thoroughly enjoyable. It's a good book for many reading levels, and for readers interested in fantasy and adveture set in modern times. They are fairly quick reads.
