      Loriís peaceful English village is being overrun by a rowdy and mischievous Renaissance fair

    Lori Shepherd loves living in the small English village of Finch, but as her eighth summer in the town approaches she finds herself wishing for something exciting to spice up her all-too-familiar routine. When King Wilfredís Faire opens nearby, Lori gets her wish and more. The age of chivalry lives again at the Renaissance fair. Wizards, wenches, magicians, and minstrels cajole the fairgoers while lords quaff, jesters joke, and knights battle in the joust arena. But Lori discovers that itís not all pageantry and play.

    A sinister figure is stalking the angel-voiced madrigal singer. A jealous rival has sabotaged the Dragon Knightís weapons. And an evil assassin is trying to murder Good King Wilfred. With Aunt Dimityís otherworldly guidance, Lori races to save her dear village and risks her neck to keep the medieval revelry from ending in tragedy.

    Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon is another gem in Athertonís perennially beloved cozy series, sure to enchant her many loyal fans and attract new ones.
