And some of them are kind of cute. Like Tannim, for instance, a young human mage with a predeliction for hot rock, fast cars and dangerous women. Now he thinks he's found Ms. Right, but there are three tiny little problems: 1) Her father is a dragon. 2) She's not human though she is definitely a fox. 3) She seems to want to kill him....
Tannim's magery is sometimes erratic -- but his talent for getting himself into trouble is perfect.
