The Bone Dragon rushes at Jack, jaws hinging wide as if to swallow him whole.

Jack seizes the monster’s jaws and sets his feet, absorbing the shock of impact. Then, straining mightily, he begins to twist and heave with the Dragon’s head.

Hoisting it aloft, Jack dashes it against the stone wall, shattering it. The body of the Bone Dragon, absent its motive force, collapses in a heap.

Turn to 68.
