The beast has been freed…
And now it’s waging destruction.
Seagryn the Powershaper has freed the two-headed dragon, but it was Sheth who made the beast. Now the dragon is scorching the land and devouring its people. And for that, Seagryn is seemingly to blame.
Now a traitor to his former people, Seagryn and his wife are driven from his home as outcasts. Nobody wanted him — nobody but the dragon, Vicia-Heinox.
Seagryn finds himself caught between the people who have disowned him and a malicious – and hungry – two-headed dragon. He must decide once and for all where his true allegiances lie – or else, the city folk might find themselves the prey of an almighty beast…
The Faithful Traitor is the gripping second instalment of the Wizard & Dragon series from Robert Don Hughes, a master of fantasy storytelling in the High tradition.
