It had mystery, a love story, action, and the community of people coming together to fight this dragon which reminds me a lot of us as Christians. Are we not called to stand together to fight the enemy? - reviewer comment
Dragons have been forgotten, relegated to the realm of legend and myth. But tales of horror circulate among the common people. Rumors of their attacks float on the night wind. They are a fearsome presence that haunts the memories of the old and the nightmares of the young.
They are forgotten, but they are not gone.
The dragon masters wait, a dark force lurking in the shadows of every land.
They will have their opportunity. They will rise.
A young boy is stripped violently from his family and thrust into the conflict between dragon masters and feudal lords. Through tragedy and loss Hon is swept into the conflict while battling the fear and pain that grips his own soul.
Dragon Slayer: Beginnings is a story of life and the growth of faith in the midst of loss. It’s about the battle every person goes through to become more than their past has destined them to be.
He is the first. He will be the best. He is the Dragon Slayer.
Writing book one, “Beginnings” has been a create joy and incredible challenge all at the same time!
I’m continually amazed at the grace of God that He’s enabled me to write this novel. I’ve always had a great desire to write, and as a youngster I read a ton. Combining my love of reading with the creation process of writing a book like this has been incredible! Thanks God!
But I've also written some non-fiction stuff - a marriage devotional, a spiritual growth notebook, a book about recharging your spiritual life. You can find them all at http://www.christianhomeandfamily.com/store
I should tell you a bit about me. Just for fun, I’ll list them in order of importance!
- I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
- You can find my writings and much of the outgrowth of that faith at http://www.careygreen.com or http://www.careygreen.com .
- I have 5 great kids and one great daughter-in-love, at this time… we’re praying for a son-in-love to show up soon…
- I have one grandchild (that makes me “Grand-Pop”) and another on the way!

The Dragon Slayer series comes from stories I told to my older three kids when they were small. Bedtime, road trips, and many other times I can remember hearing kids ask, “Dad, can you tell us a Hon story?”
I did… and they finally convinced me to put them into book form. I love to interact with readers, so please feel free to use the button above to contact me. I’m happy to discuss anything – from faith to writing to business to parenting to who won the last ball game. Shoot me a line!

"I have to say, you've got me hooked now and I'm already looking forward to the next installment."
"I really did enjoy the book and am looking forward to the rest of the
series. I can see it providing some good discussion points with fathers
and sons on what it means to become a man, and more importantly, a man
of God. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to be a reviewer."
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading your manuscript! Every time I had a chance
to sit down, I was reading it to see what was happening to Hon and all! I
would be very honored to promote your book! I really enjoyed reading
"Overall, it is a really, really good book and I do hope to read the next one in the series... the story centered on a Christian foundation is refreshing. Thanks again for allowing me to read it, and I will gladly help promote it on my personal website."
"I have two words that described this book... Page Turner. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning just so I could finish it
and see what happened. :) You did a fantastic job!!! Like a lot of
books, when introducing the characters, it can be a slow process but you
did a great job. It was towards the middle of the third chapter that
you had me hooked and I couldn't stop reading. It had mystery, a love
story, action, and the community of people coming together to fight this
dragon which reminds me a lot of us as Christians. Are we not called to
stand together to fight the enemy?
I honestly can't wait for the next book and I pray that God would use
you as an author and these books to open the eyes of those that are in
the darkness and know that they too can pick up the sword and fight the
good fight of faith."
"I loved the book and can't wait for the sequel! The one thing I want to say is that I loved all of the detail and felt that it was well rounded. The ending was fantastic! I love it! Pulls everything together and leaves me wanting more!"
