Title: Henrietta and the Dragon Stone
Author: Beth Barany
Series: The Five Kingdoms #2
About: What if everyone you loved was threatened by a force you couldn’t see or fight?
Henrietta the legendary dragon slayer wants to return to her village for a heroes’ welcome. But an unknown sorcerer rides after her and her Dragon Stone and aims to destroy everyone she cares about. Can she claim her newfound powers sparked by the Dragon Stone and keep her loved ones safe, or will the sorcerer destroy everyone and everything she loves?
My Thoughts: This is another fun installment in The Five Kingdoms, a series I’m enjoying more as I go. It’s full of adventure, heartbreak, tenderness, and growth (for Henrietta). While there is plenty of action, I felt that the focus of this book was more the budding romance between Henrietta and Franc. I didn’t mind at all. It was sweet, tender, and touching to watch the two of them come to terms with their feelings for each other. To let go of their own issues and let love in.
The story had some surprises, and Henrietta is still an awesome protagonist. She’s a kick-ass female hero, and proud of it — as she should be. She’s got skills and heart. I liked her a lot in this book. I also loved Franc (book boyfriend, for sure), and wanted to see them together sooner!
In all, I liked the story and characters better than I had in Henrietta the Dragon Slayer. This is a touching story that I found myself getting more and more engrossed in as I got further into the book. If you like fantasy and kick-ass females, then this book is for you! Not just the book — the series (I can’t wait for more)!
