It's late, it's cold, and it's raining, and Alys can think of only one thing--revenge. But first she's got to escape, and even if she does, how can one girl possibly take on an entire town alone?
Then the dragon arrives--a dragon that could quite possibly be the perfect ally. . . .
Even though Dragon's Bait is quite short, it is very, very entertaining.
Alyss, a young girl, is accused of sorcery, and during her trial her father dies and she is unable to help him. Her sentence is decided and she is attached to a pole for when the dragon comes. All hope lost, Alyss is shocked when the dragon doesn't eat her, but offers her help.
