Henrietta The Dragon Slayer Box Set (Book 1-3) on Pre-Order Now! by award-winning novelist Beth Barany

Get this 3-book series — She’s a legend at 17, but only Henrietta knows the price she paid for her fame … and it was much too high.

Henrietta The Dragon Slayer, Book 1

Henrietta, the legendary Dragon Slayer of Bleuve, can’t stomach 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.

Henrietta and the Dragon Stone, Book 2

Henrietta faced the dragon and won the healing stone—but now faces an even greater test. The young dragon slayer is trusted with a crucial message that will save the five Kingdoms from war. But to deliver it, she must slip past an evil sorcerer and his many guises.

When the new King Renaldo of the Oro Islands gives Henrietta a crucial message to deliver to her own king, she accepts gladly, knowing she can at last bring the healing stone to her ailing master. But she, loyal knight Franc, and their companions quickly discover that things are not as they should be in Bleuve.

Dangers beset them on all sides, war threatens, and Henrietta will face losses that threaten to break her. Dark magic is at work within her home kingdom … and things will never be the same. Especially Henrietta herself.

Henrietta and The Battle of the Horse Mesa, Book 3

Parted by destiny, the four friends struggle to rejoin forces…

In the biggest challenge of her life, Henrietta the legendary Dragon Slayer of Bleuve must lead her people into a battle that may end life as they know it. For they face no ordinary army, but the dark forces of a powerful sorcerer bent on overtaking all five kingdoms.

Will Henrietta and her friends be able to reunite and stop the ruthless sorcerer from obliterating them, claiming the Dragon Stone, and claiming the Five Kingdoms as his own?

Learn more about the Henrietta the Dragon Slayer series and to read an excerpt go here.

I was inspired to write Henrietta the Dragon Slayer 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.

I wanted to know: What about Jill?

Where was the girl hero?

That was why I wrote Henrietta the Dragon Slayer.

I wanted, and still want, to have my young woman heroine fight the good fight and have adventures, and save the day.

The question I ask when I’m looking for stories to read is, “Where are the women and girls who are tough and can lead, and have to make the hard decisions, and yes, still be women?” (We get to define what that means!)

READER POLL! I want your opinion!

Which of my five romances should I send to my Danish publisher to translate?!

Yes, I have a Danish publisher and they are considering either Henrietta The Dragon Slayer or one of my romances.

I’ve sent them Henrietta to consider. Now I need to choose a romance for them to consider.

I want to send them the one that’s a reader favorite.

So instead of guessing, I thought I’d ask you!

To help me out, take this very short survey:

Click here to take a very short Google survey.

Simply rank the five romances in the order you like them best. I know — a hard choice! I love them all equally!

Or copy and paste this link:

As a thank you gift, I’m offering you an ebook copy of Touchstone of Love (Touchstone #1).

Please reply by Friday, June 30th, 9pm PT.

That is when I promised the publisher I’d send me the book to read during her summer vacation.

UPDATE: Replies are coming in! Aren’t these bar graphs pretty?!

 

PS. This same publisher is distributing all my fiction to subscription services around the world. More on that later!
