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

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?
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
“Henrietta the Dragon Slayer is a magical fantasy novel with complex, well-rounded characters having adventures while dealing with their real life personality issues. Even though Henrietta has a great reputation as a great Dragon Slayer, she discovers a pacifist streak that makes her previous lifestyle difficult to continue. The witty dialogue and good story line makes this book hard to put down. It’s really fun to read. It’s also very satisfying to read about a girl heroine fighting the good fight.” — Amazon reviewer

Henrietta’s character is brilliant, fierce
This is the epic conclusion of Henrietta The Dragon Slayer trilogy! … Henrietta’s character is brilliant, fierce, & saucy. With a sheer cast of supporting characters Franc, the heroic, chauvinistic knight, Jaxster, the storytelling jester, & Paulette, quiet & mischievous fire witch that accentuate the story. A perfect summertime read that is intriguing & jam packed with suspense.
A Wonderful End To An Amazing Trilogy!
I loved this book and am a fan of the whole series. … an engrossing magical world and populated it with interesting creatures and characters that you can really care about. One of the best things about this series is that it’s lead character is a smart, strong and brave female.
I really enjoyed this book. The author does an excellent job of creating a world that the reader can be pulled into and become a part of. Could not put this book down. Would highly recommend to others. (Already have, in fact!)
