Henrietta, the legendary Dragon Slayer of the Kingdom of Bleuve, can’t stomach the thought of one more kill. Yet, in order to save her dying mentor, she must go on one last quest.

Henrietta The Dragon Slayer by Beth Barany was an amazing and exciting read.
The cover totally fits the book. The story was perfect and as it represented a kick-ass female protagonist, I knew that this book was gonna rock. It's adventurous, amazing and really unique. Henrietta reminded me of a character Kiatana from Kiatana's Journey. Seriously Henrietta is a mix of Lara Croft and Beatrice Prior. If these characters ever met, they'll become best friends! LOL!!
The story was very gripping at some parts. The plot is amazing, and I loved Beth's writing style. The story was written in such an easy manner, that I found myself totally connected to Henrietta. Okay, so there were some parts where I got bored. It's not like that every paragraph was described extra or the characters became boring. What happened was that sometimes, the story got dragged.
The ending was so full of suspense. A new quest is waiting for Henrietta, so its a huge cliffhanger. I read all the praises for the book, and they all said that this is one amazing read! Seriously you won't regret reading it!
If you are a sucker for brave female protagonists, then this book is perfect for you!
Happy Reading! <3
