This series is just so much fun. In this third installment, Hermes, the Greek god of thieves, communication, etc., is the ironic victim of a thief. When not one, but two, extremely rare and valuable jewels are stolen from jewelry shops he owns, Hermes calls on his Uncle Hades for assistance. Catching the thief is easier than they thought. Until he transforms into a dragon that is! It turns out that Fafnir, the dragon in question, is not acting of his own volition however. Of course, the rest of the family joins in to help in the investigation. The source of the trouble turns out to be a lot bigger and a lot more sinister than they ever imagined. There is even a fantastic battle in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
This was one of the steamier novellas in the collection. The chemistry between Hermes and Fafnir is off the charts. Fafnir is a reluctant and snarky character. His journey to finally relenting to the charms of Hermes is one of my favorite parts of this story. The continuity of the seamless inclusion of mythology, history, and depth of character make this another great addition to this series.
