About C.D. Sutherland

Charles David Sutherland signs his books as C.D. Sutherland. Across three decades, he flew B-52s for the Air Force, where he was known as The Chuck, then he turned novelist with his "The Chronicles of Susah" series. Those novels shook-up the fiction world as they defied conventional classification. They blended 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 marking the birth of a new literary genre. His readers called it Antediluvian Steampunk and declared C.D. Sutherland to be its father. For all ages, if you like Biblically-based action adventures, then look at his books—you’ll be glad you did.

Born in the Virginia foothills to a coalminer’s son, who long ago joined the Navy to escape a life in the dark Appalachian mines, 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 about doing.

C.D. Sutherland married the love of life, and they are well into their 43rd year. The two of them are raising a couple of their grandsons. While C.D. Sutherland is a Baptist deacon, author, and an ACFW Louisiana officer and project manager, he is also the owner and executive editor of Narrow Way Press, LLC, a small independent publishing company. His philosophy for life is to "do the best you can with what you have to work with.”

His power verse is:

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:16 KJV)*

Reviews of The Dragoneers by C.D. Sutherland

JasperMushnick reviewed on Feb. 4, 2015

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.

Powerful story about an amazing young woman. Unique story line introduces Susah, who has an interesting family, you might have heard of them before. Anyway, her struggle to find herself as she pushes through barriers of life, dragons, and demons is a pleasure to read. I've read the other two books and they are great sequels. Iwill post my reviews on them shortly.

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.

This book is exciting and well written. Interestingly, this book is free here and at B&N, but listed for 99 cents over at Amazon. Less than a buck is practically free, but usually Amazon matches prices. I guess they have enough customers to suit them. I loved this book and it's sequel, I'm almost finished with book three. Very good stuff.

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.

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 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.
