When fellow student John Foremile turns up as his flat on a rain sodden winter's night, former Merchant Navy Captain Rex Slingsby thinks he's in for just another boozy night down the pub, John however, has come laden with a package of ancient looking manuscripts, and Rex is soon engrossed in reading an outlandish tale of a powerful, benevolent race of Dragons and of the human wizards hell-bent on destroying them.

Incredulous at first, the two friends quickly find themselves embroiled in an epic quest to rescue a fertile dragon's egg, hidden over a thousand years before in a remote cave by its desprate mother. Pitted against them is a motley crew of twelve-foot Trolls, hellish hounds, and power-crazed Mafioso wizards, all of whom, it seems, will stop at nothing to bring Rex and John's quest to a premature and deadly end.
