In this episode, enjoy as Eoin Colfer treats us to an exclusive early sneak peek as he reads from Highfire, a joyous genre-bending story that’s part thriller, part action movie and very very funny. In it we meet a vodka-drinking, Netflix-bingeing dragon, who in the days of yore would fly the skies and scorch angry mobs, but now hides from swamp tour boats and rises only with the greatest reluctance from his La-Z-Boy recliner. What will happen when he crosses paths with a troublemaking teen who’s on the run?
