Wierms EggGon first traveling the land with his uncle in disguise and then setting out on his own to learn his destiny from the Seeker in the Deep Along the way he encounters demons witches and pirates as well as dragons each with a part to play in changing Wiermig's life The past returns to shape the future when Erozu Interspecies bondingIf Tarzan a human baby could be raised by an ape why could not Wiermig the foundling discovered among the remains of a shipwreck be raised by a dragon or 'wierm' as the species is named in this remarkable fantasy?First of all Jennifer is a friend of mine I knew she was a writer but had no idea she wrote something so imaginative sure footed and readable as 'Wierm's Egg' The baby named Wiermig or 'dragon's egg' by his adoptive mother Sylla is raised to be a sensitive and peaceful child Sylla does breathe fire and like all wierms she loves bright sparkly treasure I never have really understood the dragon lust for treasure theme A dragon hoards gold but how can it spend it? In this novel that appetite is described as something innate within the wierm's nature almost a chemical attraction In this context the wierm is not avaricious or greedy but actually loves the treasure for its own beauty of an 'art for art's sake' mindset than simply a desire to possess Likewise Sylla loves her own treasure little 'Ig' as she nicknames him with the unconditional love of a mother for her offspringLike many fantasy novels this one involves an apprenticeship a coming of age for the young prince andor warrior The refreshing difference in this novel is that the boy is drawn toward music and learns to play harp and flute and sing and write ballads This is a portrait of the bard as a young man As Sylla raises and educates her son and trains him in the ways and lore of the wierms she realizes that she also needs to expose him to the world of his own kind Fortunately she possesses a magic ring that enables her to assume a human shape and in the guise of a withered old woman she escorts her young son into a nearby village where she has befriended many of the residents especially a simple yet true hearted guard named BertAlso at some point she must introduce Wiermig to a council of dragons and obtain approval for him to go on his uest and learn the secret that will fulfill his destiny Sylla's brother Willais is appointed to accompany the lad Using the magic ring Willais will become a wandering troubadour He and young Wiermig will soak up the local color learn about the ways of men and earn their keep as strolling minstrels performing ballads for any audience that will have themI will not summarize the plot other than to state that Wiermig's talents as a bard and his wit rather than his skill with a sword enable him to survive the vicissitudes of plundering pirates sunken ships damsels in distress most of whom are shallow princesses vain kings and one demented evil Sauron of a dragon In short Wiermig does save the human inhabitants of this kingdom and restore the peace that once exists between humans and wierms This humanities person appreciates the fact that Wiermig becomes a bard whose 'weapons' his flute and his lute are larger than his silver dagger The dragons are mostly peace loving creatures Sure there are some bad ones in the bunch and of course the demented Erozur Generally they have no appetite for humans as Sylla discovers after her necessary devouring of a couple of rogues who have invaded her cave The result is the most combustible case of heartburn I have ever encounteredJennifer's imaginary world is far denser than many fairy tales and fleshed out with a language Serpentine for the dragons and a geography that is comprised of far than simply a couple of kingdoms This world is detailed than that of most cinematic animated tales and worthy of an adaptation by a master such as Hayao Miyazaki Her prose possesses and unforced fluidity and she's also a pretty skillful writer of fantasy ballads Only once does it slip and thrust one out of the reality of this world when she refers to the scent of dragonbane as 'rather pleasant like something one might add to a linen closet to keep the laundry fresh' Do wierms have laundry to wash and if so do they need to put it in linen closets?Although stories of this world would be welcome this novel is not launched to initiate a multi volume saga such as George RR Martin might devise It is short and concise and extremely well paced and plotted Full disclosure Jennifer Garlen is a friend of mine I knew she was a writer but had no idea she had written something so readable and imaginative This novel is available in Kindle format only but that fact should in no way detract from the fact that any publisher would be a fool not to pass up the opportunity to make this a print book for mass consumption Great job Jennifer
