While Farquarte the Dragon and his friends are waiting for the Crown to ratify their non-discrimination agreement the Greenfields who were in a contract to supply the Casino with wine hacked up the prices. Farquarte, being a dragon, had a huge appetite so when he and Jacques to town to buy more wine for the casino and learned of the higher prices, he made a rampage, feeding off a cattle herd. That was just the beginning of troubles.

Through death omens, cold stiffening his joints, and worry over where he can buy the wine so desperately needed for the Casino, Farquarte finds himself much confused by everything that is happening. Swallowing a few gold pieces didn't help either, especially when he woke up the following morning with a hangover to rival those we suffer after a drinking spree. By the end of Book 3 of The Dragon Thing To Do series, Farquarte is in jail for murdering a Park Ranger, only he didn't murder the ranger.

Susie Hawes has done a good job with her The Dragon Thing To Do Series. I liked the imagery, the way the plot is paced, the way Ms. Hawes instills love and consideration into Farquarte, making him more human than he realizes. Humor, something I like in my reading, is meshed throughout the plot. I recommend starting with Book #1 Dragon Creed and work your way through the series.

Damned Dragon Book #5 should come out later this year.
