The award-winning author of the Noah Zarc series, Joey Cola: Dream Warriors, and Shadow Swarm brings you a short story of the ancient tale of one man’s quest for glory, and the dragon who stands in his way.
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?
NOTE 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.
