Summary
Jennifer Strange is a 15 year-old foundling who manages Kazam, an employment agency for magical types. Unfortunately for the resident wizards and magicians, magic is fading. No one is sure why there is less magic to go around but everyone agrees that change is coming. Big change. Maybe even Big Magic. And it is all predicted to begin with the death of the last dragon at the hand of an unknown last dragonslayer.
Critique
This entertaining fantasy stars a cast of quirky (and fantastical)characters, a heroine who is unwavering in her beliefs, and a big ethical conundrum. It is a squeaky clean story full of humor and adventure.
