Inhaltsangabe

From the internationally best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series: Eoin Colfer's first adult fantasy novel is a hilarious, high-octane adventure about a vodka-drinking, Flashdance-loving dragon who's been hiding out from the world - and potential torch-carrying mobs - in a Louisiana bayou...until his peaceful world's turned upside down by a well-intentioned but wild Cajun tearaway and the crooked (and heavily armed) law officer who wants him dead.  

Squib Moreau may be swamp-wild, but his intentions are (generally) good: he really wants to be a supportive son to his hard-working momma Elodie. But sometimes life gets in the way - like when Fake Daddy walked out on them leaving a ton of debt, or when crooked Constable Regence Hooke got to thinking pretty Elodie Moreau was just the gal for him.... 

An apprenticeship with the local moonshine runner, servicing the bayou, looks like the only way to pay off the family debts and maybe get Squib and his momma a place in town, far from Constable Hooke's unwanted courtship and Fake Daddy's reputation.   

Unfortunately for Squib, Hooke has his own eye on that very same stretch of bayou - and neither of them have taken into account the fire-breathing dragon hiding out in the Louisiana swamp...

For Squib Moreau, Regence Hooke and Vern, aka Lord Highfire of Highfire Eyrie, life is never going to be the same again.  

Highfire: A triumphant genre-bending tour de force of comedy and action by the million-copy-selling master storyteller.

Difficult but funny for a non-native speaker

I habe to admit it took me quite a while to get into the sang, even though I thought until this book my english was pretty good... Having the whisperthing helped me a lot and I ended up reading quite a lot in parallel to listening as I am totally not used to that kind of slang.
The narrator did a good job distinguishing the different characters. However, I did not like the sound of his voice so much as to give him 5 stars, there are better ones out there

And yes, the language is very violent, maybe a good thing I did not get all the references after all? But it was so overloaded with it that it was a bit like one of those blood splatter films that you can only laugh about it, so I did not really find it offending but rather „educating“ to learn all those words I would otherwise be ignorant of.


The story was really unique and very worth the reading/listening, I had to finish during the whole weekend. Had very touching and sad and even more often funny situations, that at the end I wish there was a sequel!!!
