Review

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, best known for strong heroines in her stories, this story is no exception. It is a tale of righteousness and overcoming adversity including magic. --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 goodreadG

From the Author

I was inspired to write Henrietta the Dragon Slayer (Book 1 of the Five Kingdom 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 and have adventures, and save the day. 

Even today I was researching heroic fantasy on Goodreads and found only stories by men written about men and boys. 

Again, I ask, "Where are the women and girls who are tough and can lead, and have to make the hard decisions, and yes, still be women?" (Whatever that means!)

Henrietta the dragon slayer is a charming book set in a fantasy world. Henrietta has slayed many dragons in her short life and has resigned not to take any more jobs, but when a pushy knight named Franc implores her to follow him to his lands and slay Mimoto the dragon she hesitates, until she learns her mentor, Master Chen is sick and only the Dragonitas from Mimoto can save him does she embark on her quest.

The cast of Henrietta, The dragon slayer consists of Henrietta, the firey warrior woman with a sharp tongue and stubborn attitude. The stoic and harsh knight Framc, Jaxter the jester and a witch-girl Paulette. Unlikely traveling companions, they mesh well and no personalities comflict with anothers. Each person has a distinct personality and I found myself really likeing them all.

As far as writing goes, Henrietta The Dragon Slayer is fluid, easy to read and reads well. There is no swearing and no sexual content, there is a little action but no bloodfests. Though it says 'dragon slayer' in the title, you wont see Henrietta fighting any, we hear of her exploits in Jaxters tales only. The world in which they reside is not explained in great detail but I did not mind this so much, Barany did not hamper the writing with telling about every single rock and tree the companions come across.

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!

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. I really could not stop reading it and was really tired the next day. (I never read fiction during the week - oops!) It's also very satisfying to read about a girl heroine fighting the good fight.

When I first starting reading this book I didn't believe it would hold my interest but the copy was beautifully proofed, the story well laid out and the writing a zestful pleasure. I would suggest you give this book a try even if YA or fantasy fiction isn't your taste. The story will hold your interest and you'll find yourself drawn to the characters.
The tale is about Henrietta, the legendary Dragon Slayer of the Kingdom of Bleuve, who can't stomach the thought of one more kill. Yet, in order to save her dying mentor, she must go on one last quest. Will her encounter with misfit companions and an egomaniacal king prevent her from reaching the end of her journey?
Read to find out, you'll be delightfully pleased.Henrietta The Dragon Slayer

This book is far more than just a fun read!

I loved the story, the unusual cast of characters, the heroes journey depicting a kind of universal slayer in us all. What I don't get is why this book is rated for young adults when it's just as good as any adult fiction? Author Beth Barany is a terrific writer who weaves a tale of a large tail that teaches us lessons, brings mythical knowledge to light, teaches us not to just believe what we see on the surface, takes us on a journey you can almost feel and visualize clearly, and is exciting throughout. To me, it's the female version of the equally fun and magical Harry Potter series. I'm rushing out to buy copies for my nieces!

Can't wait for the sequel!

I'm not a reader of YA fiction, but Barany's kick-ass heroine was enough to keep me cheering for her until the very end. Henrietta is a no-nonsense role model for young women, and her book is a great start to a promising series!

I am not much into this type of fantasy work. However, I found this tale interesting and well written. It is an easy read, is fluid, and although not a bloodfast, thank goodness, it did have sufficient action blended within the personal story. A good read for everyone from MG-adult. No sexual content or real violence.

Henrietta the dragon slayer is a good book, it flows nicely, making it an easy book to follow and read! Being in a house with 3 small children it is hard to find to time to read, yet with all the interruptions I managed to finish the book in three days! I liked how the story ended and yet at the same time began the next book! Would recommend
