She's a legend at 17, but only Henrietta knows the price she paid for her fame ... and it was much too high.
From the Winner of the California Fiction Writer's Book Contest comes this thrilling adventure of a young warrior on one final quest ... against an opponent she swore never to face again.
Henrietta, the legendary Dragon Slayer of Bleuve, can't face the thought of another kill. She's lost family, friends and home on her rocky road to fame. But when the young warrior is summoned by a King to retrieve the Dragon Stone from the last dragon in existence, she can't refuse--her mentor lies dying, and the healing stone is all that can save him. This quest will be her most harrowing of all, for it means facing mysterious assassins, the dreaded choppy sea, and all with a misfit band--a young witch, a jester and a surly knight. And at journey's end, someone must die ... the dragon, or Henrietta.
Perfect for fans of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Collins' The Hunger Games, McKinley's Hero & the Crown, and Paolini's Eragon. Get your copy of Henrietta the Dragon Slayer today!
WHAT READERS HAVE SAID
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

Beth Barany, best known for strong heroines in her stories, created a tale of righteousness, magic and overcoming adversity. --Robert Mendak "RJ"

Beth Barany has made a world where unlikely friendships rule and being a friend means more than you can know. --Tami, from Goodreads
FROM THE AUTHOR
I was inspired to write Henrietta the Dragon Slayer (Book 1 of the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series) because all the fairy tales I read as a kid were always about boys as heroes: Jack the Giant Killer this, Jack and the Seven-Headed Giant that, and of course, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Hey! I wanted to know what about Jill! Where's the girl hero?
That is why I wrote Henrietta The Dragon Slayer. I wanted, and still want, to have my girl heroine fight the good fight, have adventures, and save the day.
