This is the sequel to Henrietta the Dragon Slayer. I received book marks from the author. I can't remember how that happened. Maybe it was one of those giveaways I joined and not remember anymore. Anyway, I emailed the author thanking her for the bookmarks. She also asked me if I already have a copy of Henrietta and the Battle of the Horse Mesa, Book 3 of this series. I already have it but mentioned to her that I do not have book two yet. She was so generous that she sent me this book. Thank you ...more

Henrietta And The Dragon Stone is the second book in The Five Kingdom series by Beth Barany. I have read and reviewed the first book, Henrietta The Dragon Slayer, and as compared to the first book, this book was verrrrry fantastic. The first book's ending got me really excited, and thanks to Beth that she sent me both books of the series together, so I didn't had to wait! 

Henrietta And The Dragon Stone starts with a new quest for Henrietta. She is no more a dragon slayer but now the ambassador o

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,

This book picks up where the last one left off so I hope you're wearing comfy shoes because you're up, running - and fighting - within the first few pages. There is so much action within the first few pages of this that I felt as exhausted as Henrietta! But it isn't all about fighting. There are relationships to be rekindled, choices to be made, people to protect, it all goes on here.

One of the things that I really liked about this is the evolving and deepening relationship between Franc and Hen

I received this book from the author for my honest review.
This isn't a type of story I usually read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I found myself quite drawn to the story and the characters. It was full of magic and mystery. Henri Etta was such a strong, complex, fascinating character. It was quite interesting to follow her journey of adventure and discovery. I enjoyed reading the secondary characters, they were engaging and added so much to the story. I look forward to reading more from this

I was really happy to get a chance to read this book. This was a great follow up to Henrietta the Dragon Slayer. The book returns with action, sword-fighting and adventure. I really like these types of stories where characters go on a quest. The story also give us a look on Henrietta's past and see what the powers of the Dragon's Stone hold. I also like seeing Henriette and Franc get closer in the book. I did miss seeing some of the other characters like Jaxter and Paulette because I really like ...more

Not kindle unlimited, read the prequel {listed at bottom of all this} and then found had the #1 book, which didn't like as well as the prequel but then again those are made to be short and if you realize it is prequel obviously there is only so much going in to it, but a lot considering but liked this. This one, #2 had even more going on, and that can be a problem when using the audio reader on the tablet {lets me get names mixed up and sometimes lose the plot a bit and have to go back just a bi ...more

What a wonderful story and cast of characters in Henrietta the Dragon Slayer! Beth weaves the story through a fantasy world where the main character has slayed dragons and has seen her fair share of war for such a young woman.

As she stumbles out of a tavern after hearing tales of her heroics, she meets a pushy knight named Franc, who insists that she return with him to the Islands of Oro to face the Emerald Dragon, Mimoto. However, Henrietta has other plans when she hears that her master has fa

I really enjoyed reading Henrietta and the Dragon Stone. This is the second book in the Henrietta Dragon Slayer series. It has a lot more action in this adventure than in the first book. It starts off where she had finally gotten the stone she needed to help save her mentor. The question is can she get to him in time or will she be to late? Her friend now King has asked her to take a very important message to another king along her journey. Will she get the message to him? Looks like someone is ...more

Henrietta and the Dragon Stone by Beth Barany is book #2 in The Five Kingdoms trilogy. I really love this series. It features a strong female heroine. I feel that this is something you do not see enough of. Taking place in a highly imaginative world filled with magic and amazing creatures it is engrossing and entertaining. This well written book will quickly ensnare you in Henrietta's continuing journey as it picks up after book #1. So yes, you should definitely read the books in order. A great ...more

Will she be forced into the role of Hero?

Awesome. Intrigue and double dealings abound. The epic saga continues in this fast paced 2nd book. Henrietta tries to come to terms with the powers associated with her Dragon stone. Although all she wants is to lead a quite, solo life it is not to be. Allies bent on making her a heroic leader are all around as are deadly enemies. Can she survive to carry out her diplomatic mission? Will she be forced into the role of leader, lover and protector? A grand s

Henrietta finds herself well outside her experience when she has to carry the dragon egg to her mentor, and things go badly. Villains, treacherous terrain, misunderstandings, hopes and fears- each one affects all the others making a dynamic adventure come alive. I thought I'd outgrown tales like this, but I'm a fan now, ready to travel on with Henrietta.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

You can read and appreciate this book without having read the first volume, but honestly, you will find yourself wanting to know more, so I suggest you begin with book 1 and continue with each addition.
Henrietta is the ultimate strong female protagonist. However she is also a well rounded human with a full range of emotions, including a few insecurities. Used to being alone, she must learn to trust and depend upon others to attain her goals.
