The Conjuring of Zoth-Avarex by K.R.R. Lockhaven is a story of The Self-Proclaimed Greatest Dragon in the Multiverse. The Site. A place long-hidden by the US government where magic is real and freely used. But it's not all sparkly fun – bureaucracy and tough policies are threatening the magic. Harris is a new conjurer and is so excited to start work at the site. His new job is part of a big project and the Site is successful – they manage to conjure a dragon for the military to use. Zoth-Avarex is no ordinary dragon though. After snacking on a nearby person, he kidnaps a princess and takes her away to the Space Needle. There he proceeds to make minced meat out of the media and the Site management, demands treasure totaling $63 billion, and even gets some food trucks installed – all while threatening to destroy the entire city. How will they get Zoth-Avarex under control again? Or can they? By unleashing him, management may well have signed their own death warrants.
The Conjuring of Zoth-Avarex by K.R.R. Lockhaven is one of the best fantasy stories I have read in a long while. Not only is it a unique take on the fantasy genre, but it also delves into the real world, making fun of people’s obsessions with celebrity folk and material wealth. There’s a good, fun feel to it, with some amazing characters and some strong leads. The main characters are well-developed, independent people, likable and relatable, and surprisingly real for a fantasy story. The plot is well-thought-out and flows smoothly with lots of action and even more laughs. If you are a fan of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, and Monty Python, and you want a good fun book, this is for you - especially now, when humor is sorely lacking in the world! It would also make a great movie or TV series.
