As far as young adult fantasies go, Henrietta The Dragon Slayer is a good read that I think any age, teen to adult, would enjoy. I only hope a sequel is in the works --LunaMoth The witty dialogue and good story line makes this book hard to put down. I really could not stop reading it and was really tired the next day. It's also very satisfying to read about a girl heroine fighting the good fight. --Jeri Beth Barany, best known for strong heroines in her stories, created a tale of righteousness, magic and overcoming adversity. --Robert Mendak "RJ" The book is a beautiful story about friendship, a heroine, and a quest to kill a dragon. Who wouldn't be excited? The entire concept sounded interesting and I was not at all disappointed. --Brittany, from Goodreads Beth Barany has made a world where unlikely friendships rule and being a friend means more than you can know. --Tami, from Goodreads ABOUT THE BOOK Henrietta, the legendary Dragon Slayer of the Kingdom of Bleuve, can't stomach the thought of one more kill. Yet, in order to save her dying mentor, she must go on one last quest. But will misfit companions, seasickness, and an ego maniacal king derail the quest for the healing stone? And will she be able to cut past her conscience and kill the dragon? ABOUT THE AUTHOR Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Beth Barany has been making up fantasy and adventure stories all her life.
