THE DRAGONEERS is a coming of age story about Susah, a talented young woman, who refuses to join her three brothers in helping her father advance the family business. She wants to do something exciting with her life. While this story could have been set in any time, the fantastical world she lives in amplifies each step nearly beyond the bounds of imagination. Against her parents’ wishes, Susah leaves home on a quest to become one of the dragoneers—an elite fraternity of warriors sworn to defend the ancient garden of Eden against all trespassers. Meanwhile, deep in a lair inside of Sethopolis’ roughest neighborhood, an evil giantess dreams of seizing the secrets of immortality and other powers, which she believes are hidden within the walls of the forbidden garden. Realizing she can’t achieve her dream with her own resources, she joins forces with a fallen angel, nearly as old as time itself. Seemingly unawares of the dangers awaiting her, Susah faces the greatest of all challenges. With the fate of the human race depending on their performance, will the dragoneers succeed in defending the garden of Eden against the forces of evil? And even if they succeed, will Susah survive the pivotal battle of good verses evil? This adventure builds on the little we know about the antediluvian world and overlays it with a blend of technology, supernatural powers, fire-and-ice-breathing, flying dragons, giants, and martial arts to begin Susah’s adventure to discover herself. Climb aboard and hang on for the ride of your life. This 100,000 word, Genesis-based fantasy will attract those interested in speculative fiction, especially about the antediluvian world, and will also appeal to readers of general fantasy as well as military fiction. The author is an American warrior who believes luck favors the prepared, but also there are forces far greater than luck that rule over our lives.

C. D. Sutherland was born in Martinsville, Virginia, to the son of a coal-miner, who escaped a life in the dark Appalachian mines by joining the U.S. military. After some typical military-family moving around, his family settled in Hopewell, Virginia for 10 years. After high school, he served in the Air Force for thirty-two years, seeing much of the world and doing things most men have only dreamed about doing. After retiring from active duty, he served as a contractor helping the Air Force reorganize their strategic forces for maximum effectiveness. His 2011 debut novel "The Dragoneers: The Chronicles of Susah: Book One" is the first of eleven books he has planned for his readers.
