Dog and Dragon

Dog and Dragon by Dave Freer

Definitely the sequel to Dragon's Ring, though they have separate stories. Spoilers ahead.

Like Fionn traipsing after Dilean down a strange road, and the dangers they meet there, and Fionn's realizing Meb's effect on the dog.

Meb suddenly appearing in a castle in a manner that appears fulfill a prophecy, thus landing her in the middle of intrigue, and a world where magical exploitation of other worlds produces many attacks. With her surprised discovery that humans are noble here.

It includes a man willing to be executed if his family is spared, juggling on many occasions, a fount, three regents in a row without a king anywhere, a sorceress out for revenge, dealing with the evil eye, and much more.
