Information
First edition, first print hardback of THE DRAGON CHARMER, by Jan Siegel (a pseudonym of Amanda Hemingway) and published by Voyager / HarperCollins Publishers, London, in 2000. Signed by the author both as Jan Siegel and Amanda Hemingway on the title page. With full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean green cloth boards with copper lettering on the spine) with only minor shelf wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped (tiny nick to top spine corner, hardly noticeable). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Jan Siegel is a pseudonym of Amanda Hemingway. She won the Most Promising First Novel Award from Southeastern Arts for her debut Pzyche, published in 1982. She has since gone on to publish no fewer than seventeen other novels, most notably the Sangreal and Fern Capel trilogies.

Jan Siegel quickly followed this early success with two psychological thrillers as Amanda Hemingway, Tantalus (1984) and Bacchanal (1987). There came two more thrillers, this time expanded to neo-Gothic blockbuster proportions: The Viper’s Heart (1990) and Soulfire (1994), after which she returned to science fiction and fantasy with the hugely successful Fern Capel series: Prospero’s Children, published in 1999.

Two sequels followed, The Dragon-Charmer (2000) and Witch's Honour (2002). Jan Siegel's second fantasy trilogy, the Sangreal trilogy The Greenstone Grail, The Traitor’s Sword, and The Poison Crown as Amanda Hemingway. Her latest The Devil's Apprentice was published in 2013.

"Twelve years have passed since the traumatic events that took place in Prospero’s Children, and it seems that Fern Capel has almost succeeded in putting aside the memory of that magical, terrifying summer, when she fought a witch, fell in love, and made a deal with a demon. More tellingly, she has denied the ancient heritage that will allow her mastery of the Gift.

But the past is about to catch up with her. Fern is soon to marry the academic and media personality, Marcus Greig – some twenty years her senior – and he has decided that they should hold the wedding at the Capels’ summer home in Yarrowdale.

When Fern returns to the house with her best friend, Gaynor, ancient forces are awoken once more, and Fern will find that she is once again forced to choose between love and destiny.

The Dragon-Charmer continues the lyrical, richly atmospheric and enthralling tale begun in Prospero’s Children. Spellbinding in its depiction of places both familiar and strange, of characters both magical and sinister, it is classic English fantasy at its finest."

'A piece of pure magic – a charming, eccentric, and powerfully imaginative work of fantasy which will enchant readers for years to come.’ — Clive Barker

‘A lyrical, captivating first novel of mermaids, magic, lost worlds and found souls. Once read, this book will not be forgotten’ — Terry Brooks
