Oddly reminiscent of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," this book centers around an unlikely hero. Dubbed as being at the right man in the wrong place, he is swept up into a fantastical adventure. Assisted by dragons, the protagonist must help defeat evil. There are references to power--which may or may not allude to actual government systems--and corruption. It is a bit creepy when the dragon is described as seductive, though. The book is more dialog than narration, so it feels very fast paced.
