In the land of Flasha Mura, a teenaged Gisbon boy is plagued by a monster he can’t see. No one knows what this beast is, but its ferocious appetite threatens to consume Brehane and his father’s herd, effectively ending his future before it has a chance to begin.
He wants to face this menace on his own, but he knows he needs help. Who will he trust? A new friend sent to protect him, or Melek, the God he believes in and thought he trusted. Will he let go of his dream so that he can find it?
Brehane’s uncle brings history alive as he recounts the dramatic lives of the kings and dragons of Yisra’el. In the histories wars are lost and won, trolls taunt, evil relentlessly pursues, dragons speak, friendships are forged, fear grips hearts, kings become sorcerers, love is found, and miracles happen.
Excerpt from a reviewer: 5.0 out of 5 stars A story within the story, April 10, 2014

I love when an author can take a story from the Bible and add details to create a novel. Kara Howell does just this with the stories from 1 and 2 Samuel to create her first novel in the Chronicles of Dragons and Kings series.
