From Evolved Publishing and D. Robert Pease, award-winning author of the "Noah Zarc" series, "Joey Cola: Dream Warriors," and "Shadow Swarm," comes a short story of the ancient tale of one man’s quest for glory, and the dragon who stands in his way. [Epic Fantasy, Dragon Adventure, Christian Fantasy, Short Story]
Blessed by the gods, Job has never lost a battle. He has triumphed over every challenge from man and nature. Arrogant? Yes, but he's invincible. Or is he?
FROM THE AUTHOR:
The book of Job is one of my favorites in the Bible. The idea that a man could go through such misery, the loss of his family, boils all over his body, friends who berate him, and still not lose his faith just amazes me. ~ I found myself imagining what happened in Job’s youth to create the man we see in the Bible. At one point God challenges Job and describes an awesome creature that could only be described as a dragon. ~ Thus the genesis of this story. I hope you like it.

About the Author
My whole life, I’ve loved hearing and reading stories, and creating worlds of my own. As a child, I spent countless hours drawing crazy contraptions on paper, or building vast fortresses in a sand pile behind my garage. There was hardly a time I wasn’t off on some adventure in my mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. So it’s no big surprise I took all that daydreaming, all that longing to really see the wonder of creation around me, and started pouring it into discovering hidden universes in my own mind. For quite a few years I tried my hand at writing, mostly working on one, massive fantasy novel, but it wasn’t until I had kids and they became voracious readers that I found my passion. There’s no greater audience than a child. I’d rather have a simple review from a kid that says, “Awesome book!” than a five-star review in the New York Times. Of course, if anyone at the Times wants to try to prove me wrong, I’d be willing to let you. To receive newsletter announcements related to D.

I enjoyed reading this short story. D.Robert Pease has managed to turn a small part of the bible into a modern piece of work, that gives the reader an insite into part of our bible that many don't read anymore or find it difficult to understand. I know I am the latter. The author managed to transcribe the emotions of Job, which is a credit to him for having that talent. I understood the thought provoking piece, in a much better way. Thank you
This is a well--written book. The author's prose is exellent; enough detail to create a movie in your mind, yet not enough to make it wordy and "fluff-filled" like a lot of other books of the same genre. Two thumbs up on this one! ---- Silverpen
