The Green Eyed Girl
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by J.W. Chew
AuthorHouse
Release Date: December 21, 2014

Lyssa Gort is a simple village girl, distinguishable by her brilliant green eyes. It is in the eyes that her secret lies – she came to the village to learn the ways of men. Why doesn’t she know that already? Lyssa is a dragon, able to change to human, quite rare. Dragons and humans have always battled, as long as Lyssa can remember. And dragons live a long, long time. The dragons were here first, ruling the mountainous area. As cities grow, the food supply dwindled, and the dragons are dying of starvation. Lyssa needs to find a way to win the war, but can she live with the consequences?

The Green Eyed Girl is a very strange, little quirk of a book. The style is more dialogue than exposition, helping the content cause the reader to feel the urgency. It is told mostly from the perspective of the dragons, almost as if the author was one. There are a lot of brutal casualties in this war, casualties that the dragon protagonist is torn about. At 222 pages, it is a light read with dark themes, timeless – war has no winners, but good deeds and selflessness garners true victory. And real leaders choose peace over violence.

I do have to add… poor goats!

The Green Eyed Girl is published by AuthorHouse, a company for those interested in self-publishing, with packages for black and white, color, and graphic novels. Packages start at under $1,000. It might be time to start that Great American novel…

Official book synopsis:

There is war in the mountains. War fueled by hatred and mistrust. War driven by vengeance and misunderstanding. War between two great peoples, the humans and the dragons. War that can only end with the absolute, utter destruction of one – unless, of course, something can turn that disaster aside. Something or someone – the girl with brilliant, emerald-green eyes.
