review Fanuilh by Daniel Hood

When the wizard Taruin is killed in his bed only two mourn him his miniature dragon familiar Faniul. Liam Rhenford was just a wandering scholar who had settled in a port town He had few friends and when one the wizard Tanauil is murdered Liam finds himself in the middle of the investigation On one side is the victim s small dragon familiar who helped itself to a piece of Liam s soul so it could survive seeking revenge On the other side is the local lawman Coeccias who grudgingly accepts Liam s interest and involvement in the search for the killer If a pushy dragon and attitudinal sheriff weren t enough there are too many suspects and far too many distractionsTechnically the book I found at the library was called A Familiar Dragon It was a collection of the first three books in the so titled series beginning with this one I never actually finished reading the library s copy before it was returned Turned out though that my roomie did she loved the series and bought it Which was nice for me because I took a good three months to finish this bookIt s not dense It s not hard It s notnot interesting It s a murder mystery of traditional design with a victim an investigation some clues some distractions a gruff but willing aid and a dragon Okay so the dragon isn t so usual but you get the idea Fans of the civilian mystery solver trope will be well at home Think The Cat Who books but with a dragon who has a telepathic link instead of a pair of suspiciously attuned Siamese cats As with will Liam is no stranger to danger or mystery Both are educated and have a pretty solid notion as to pursuing lines of uery Even the settings are familiar feeling though because they are settled in a specific location than any real similarity tiny contemporary logging town from generic norther state vs port town of indeterminate medievalpost medieval airIt s a fantasy A high adventure world you might be tempted to think with magic and dragons and poofy clouds of sandalwood scented glitter If this concerns you fear not Hood s approach to the magic in this world is very business like It s not wanton fripperies or giant floating baby heads it s serious work with preparation and conseuence It is not an everybody can do it affair nor is it a chosen ones only affair You learn to use magic and you make it your job As for Fanuilh the dragon He s dog sized small dog from the sound of it toy poodle not standard poodle most like and while he can fly and link to his master telepathically he is no Smaug The creatures themselves seem rare enough that we only meet him but common enough that his existence is accepted And the whole thing is very normal feeling Things are dirty but not noir dirty There s good weather and bad weather smelly people and pretty people It s a work a day world with some magical flair I supposeOverall I took forever to read it because it felt so familiar I like the characters a lot if I m honest and I appreciate the writing and the build of the world but I spent many years reading murder mysteries They don t hold me as they once did and there are just so many other things out there that catch my eye It s good stuff but for the moment it s just not my scene

Fanuilh by Daniel Hood

H and scholar Liam Rhenford Liam isn't about to get involved until Fanuilh magically bonds with him. I read this book when it first came out twenty odd years ago and very much enjoyed it I m happy to say the second time around was just as much fun Plus now I want Taruin s house

Compelled by the dragon's desire for justice Liam learns magic but will it be enough to save Fanui. An enjoyable protagonist an interesting setting mystery and magic in good balance I knew immediately this was a series I needed to own in full and 5 books doesn t seem nearly enough

    I read this book a long time ago back in 1996 At the time I was 13 years old I really wanted to like this book and I found the overall concept and premise desirable and uniue I loved the pseudodragon familiar and wished that he had a greater role in the story The pace at which the book moved seemed to me at the time to be rather slow Also as a mystery I found it to be very predictable I had figured out who the

    If I could give a 25 stars I probably would I enjoyed the whole series; possibly the first book the most The magicwizardry is along the lines of a cross between Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter I don't find it objectionable It's an enjoyable read and a good way to waste a few hours A couple of the books end kind of abruptly and there are a few uestions raised in earlier books that don't get answered in later ones But overall

    There's alot going on but the main thing is who killed Taruin Tanauil and why I liked Liam Rhenford though he's an unlikely detective but I've seen worse in most cozy mysteries I knew who the killer was as soon as they entered the picture and was surprised that Liam didn't even suspect I liked the tiny dragon and think I will enjoy future adventures with Liam and Fanuilh I was amazed that Liam didn't find the
