Bershad stands apart from the world, the most legendary dragonslayer in history, both revered and reviled. Once, he was Lord Silas Bershad, but after a disastrous failure on the battlefield he was stripped of his titles and sentenced to one violent, perilous hunt after another. Now he lives only to stalk dragons, slaughter them, collect their precious oil, and head back into the treacherous wilds once more. For years, death was his only chance to escape. But that is about to change. The king who sentenced Bershad to his fate has just given him an unprecedented chance at redemption. Kill a foreign emperor and walk free forever.

Once a lord, Sir Silas Bershad is now known as Bershad the Flawless, and that's not a good thing. It means that he's an exile and a dragon fighter, a job with a typically short life span. Yet Bershad has an unprecedented amount of kills to his name. So what's his secret to staying alive? Good luck or something else?
Naslund has built a truly interesting fantasy world and gifted it with a cast of interesting and not always likeable characters. There is political intrigue and manoeuvring, dragons, sorcerers, princesses, alchemists and dark sorcerers. Plenty of ribald humour, foul language and enough underhanded dealings to keep you engrossed to the last page. A very adult fantasy and an extremely enjoyable read. Oh, and did I mention the dragons???
