About the Author:

Carey Green currently lives in Colorado with his family.  He is an author, marriage and family coach, entrepreneur, podcaster, and retired pastor.

My thoughts:  

I love reading Christian books about dragons, knights, and lords.  Dragon Slayer: Beginnings, by Carey Green, was an excellent book about some of my favorite subjects.

I thought all of the characters were wonderful.  My favorite character though was the main character, Hon.  He had such a hard time with the life he had, but with his friends he was able to overcome the obstacles he made for himself and those which came as a part of life. 

This book was written for juveniles, but as a parent I would recommend that you read this book before you give it to your child.  My son is 11, however I will be waiting until he is at least 12 before I let him read this book on his own.  I might use it as a read aloud, so we can talk about it or stop reading it if he doesn’t like it.

I recommend it for adults and young adults, especially if you like reading about knights and dragons.
