Like Dragonslayer and Knight of the Silver Circle, Servant of the Crown is an exciting addition to the heroic fantasy tradition of Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and Robert Jordan. Mixing swordplay and magic with compelling characters who are searching for meaning in their lives, the Dragonslayer trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion.

Swordsman and noble, Guillot dal Villerauvais, has turned his life around since a dragon destroyed his village, but that may not enable him to defeat the Prince Bishop, who has found the great magical power he craved for so long. Gill's surprising ally, the dragon Pharadon, on a quest of his own, discovers that dragons are not the only magical creatures in the land. Solene has come to fear her own magic but will not turn away when her friends are in danger.

Since self-publishing his first ebook, The Tattered Banner (one of BuzzFeed's 12 Greatest Fantasy Books of the Year, 2013), Duncan M. Hamilton has sold more than 220,000 copies of his fast-paced, character-focused, fantasy adventure novels. The Dragonslayer trilogy is his first traditionally-published series.

Reviews for Servant of the Crown (#3 Dragonslayer)

Praise for Dragonslayer Successfully mixes swords, sorcery, and skullduggery with complex characters. Dumas fans will especially appreciate the faux-French setting. This is pure adventure fun with plenty for epic fantasy readers to enjoy. --Publishers Weekly Betrayals, ritual magic, an enchanted relic, and lost histories. A charming narrative... entertaining. Recommended for fans of dragons and medieval settings. --Library Journal Here there be dragons: self-publishing success Duncan Hamilton kicks off a new trilogy focused on Guillot 'Gill' dal Villerauvais, once a heroic dragonslayer in a French-flavored fantasy world, now a drunken nobleman in a kingdom that hasn't seen a dragon in decades. This is a fun adventure buoyed by strong characters and a flavorful fantasy setting. --B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog Action-packed, filled with intrigue and betrayals, surprises and ferocious magic. Most importantly, it's entertaining from start to finish. I look forward to seeing what awaits our unlikely hero and the powerful sorceress in the books to come. --Reviews & Robots
