Highfire by Eoin Colfer

The new adult fantasy from the internationally bestselling author of Artemis Fowl

Squib Moreau may be swamp-wild, but his intentions are (generally) good: he really wants to be a supportive son to his hard-working momma Elodie.  But sometimes life gets in the way – like when Fake Daddy walked out on them leaving a ton of debt, or when crooked Constable Regence Hooke got to thinking pretty Elodie Moreau was just the gal for him…

An apprenticeship with the local moonshine runner, servicing the bayou, looks like the only way to pay off the family debts and maybe get Squib and his momma a place in town, far from Constable Hooke’s unwanted courtship and Fake Daddy’s reputation.

Unfortunately for Squib, Hooke has his own eye on that very same stretch of bayou – and neither of them have taken into account the fire-breathing dragon hiding out in the Louisiana swamp…

For Squib Moreau, Regence Hooke and Vern, aka Lord Highfire of Highfire Eyrie, life is never going to be the same again.

Highfire is a genre-bending tour-de-force of comedy and action by Eoin Colfer, the million-copy-selling master storyteller.

Peer & Press Reviews

A high-velocity action-adventure…  The hilarious, violent and pop culture-packed tale blends the lavishly fantastical with the amazingly realistic – awesome in the truest sense of the word.

Press Association

Colfer has come up with something new here, a real genre-blending treat, and I applaud him for it.

Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones

Told in crunchy prose, with lashings of earthy dialogue, it reads like an Elmore Leonard Thriller, but with dragons…  Colfer clearly had a blast writing this, and his sheer storytelling panache brushes aside the quibbles of fantasy-genre agnostics with infectious glee.
