About the Author

C. D. Sutherland is a B-52 pilot turned novelist, with his The Chronicles of Susah series. These novels defy conventional classification as they blend action and emotional tension with technology and spiritual intrigue in a coming of age story wrapped in an epic adventure set in the antediluvian age. His readers have called him the founding father of this genre, Antediluvian Steampunk. Born in Virginia, to the son of a coal-miner who escaped a life in the dark Appalachian mines by joining the U.S. military, C. D. Sutherland also joined the military. After high school, he served in the Air Force for thirty-two years, seeing much of the world, flying jets and doing other such things most men have only dreamed of doing.

I've read all three books of this series and I'm glad to see the books on Nook, having escaped the Kindle bubble where it has been for years. The cocktail of traditional biblical fiction enhanced with literary science fiction steampunk is a refreshing escape for overused and predictable stories.  The Dragoneers is void of profanity and doesn’t have gratuitous sensuality but it does have emotional tension and physical conflict. It incorporates Biblical history to support the fantasy elements without being preachy. Someone expecting a Sunday school story will be disappointed, but those who enjoy high adventure will be pleased.

I've read this complete series, like others. I totally get the Antediluvian Steampunk concept. The first book merely whets the appetite for understanding the genre.  It's the technological anachronism that makes it steampunk, that is a retelling of the history of technology. The perceptional error in chronology, in Antediliuvian Steampunk is the culture and capabilities of the antediluvian world. It's not about trains and steam powered balloons, but something bigger. Book two has more of the same and by the time book three is before you, there is more steam than anything you've ever read. I love the series and I'm waiting for the movie.

Great book. Unique and Interesting. I've never heard of an account similar to the early world portrayed in The Dragoneers. As interesting as the story is, I found myself greatly interested in this version of history. When the book ended, I was glad to discover there are two more volumes. This story is good as it is, but after reading the next two books, I found myself coming back to cross-check the facts. There are twists within twists, which will make this series become a sensation for years to come.

Dragons, giants, fallen angels, and an elite group of humans who stand in the way of evil. A fascinating story, where the action does not stop. If you like epic adventures, this story is for you. I've read the entire series and it just gets better with each book.

I love dragon adventures. This book provided a twist by using dragons as supporting characters. The people who control them are the most powerful characters, and Susah becomes the best of them. While the novel is intense enough to get anyone's attention, the lack of profanity and graphic sex makes it suitable for young people who are strong readers.

Best Biblical Fiction I've read. I guess the steampunk is some new way of saying "science fiction story set in the past" but what ever genre you decide to put these Dragoneer books in, they are excellent adventures for readers of all ages. Not preachy at all, but if you're looking for it you can the Bible elements woven through the story. I waited to read all three novels before commenting on this first one, because I didn't want to make a mistake. having read the three books, I have to say they are extremely good stories, which happened to be based on the antediluvian age. Go Susah, I want more.

An exciting spin on the pre-flood world. I love C. D. Sutherland's extreme imagination.

Susah is one tough cookie for an innocent village girl. I'd not want to meet Lilith in a dark alley nor an illuminated shopping mall, very dangerous woman in orange. A great adventure set in the antediluvian age. Yes, that age before the biblical flood. Check it out while it's free. I did and really liked it.

How happy I was to discover this book was a series because the end of the book left me wanting more. his book really grabs you from the start. The setting is biblical pre flood. Mr Sutherland takes the reader on an unforgettable journey through a fantastic land filled with dragons, giants, demons, and Noah's family. There is good and definitely evil. The rough characters are so vividly described that you will be amazed that there is no foul language. The battle sequences are incredible, highlighting military tactical and strategic attention to detail. Great book.

An amazing version of the world before Noah's flood. Susan the innocent girl doesn't want to help build the ark. My question was what happens to her at the flood? The answer is not in this book, so I'm off to read the other books in the series. Intense and entertaining, all at the same time.

I was so excited when I first heard the premise of this book and couldn’t wait to read it. The beginning of the book kept me engaged for the most part with only a few places where it seemed to drag. C.D.’s imagination creates a technology which is woven throughout a biblically based story, and he makes it believable. Susah is the daughter of the biblical Noah who lives in a world filled with magical creatures both good and evil. She is something of a rebel and wants nothing to do with her dad’s ark-building. When Susah (finally) joins the military to follow her dream, the training goes by so quickly I was left wondering how it could possibly be thorough enough for the recruits to fight the impending war. At the same time the pacing slows and almost grinds to a halt when the narrative and conversations deliver huge amounts of back story in the form of lectures on history and a museum tour. The characters, with the exception of Susah, Noah, and possibly her friend Advac were pretty 2-dimensional. Repetition of information and certain words and phrases were littered throughout especially in the training part. The words “stupid” and “ugly” were way overused. (Susah’s “stupid questions”, the “stupid giants”—again used repetitively.) To be honest, I could not even finish reading it so the ending may have been awesome. But I did not care enough about the protagonist to see what happened to her. I believe the author has a good knowledge base and an imagination such that he could be an awesome writer. I just couldn’t get past the obvious flaws.

Not sure how the other books got into steampunk, because no steam,brass or Victoria. Story is a good read but I will not get the other two.
