Collecting a quarter-century's worth of lyrical tales, Harrowing the Dragon showcases award-winning fantasy author Patricia A. McKillip's work. From "Star-Crossed," which follows the official investigation into the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, to her inventive variations on classic tales such as "The Snow Queen" and "Beauty and the Beast," McKillip employs her elegant style and deep understanding of the fantasy genre to enchant readers. "Each of these tales is a gem of storytelling," says Publishers Weekly, in a starred review.
