AVAILABLE NOW! – The Entire 3 Book Series!
Dragons have been forgotten…
…relegated to the realm of fairy tale and myth.
But not all the people believe them to be gone.
Commoners whisper of their existence and the old ones among the people recount tales from their childhoods; terrifying abductions in the dark of night, the horrendous, flaming destruction of their family homes.
A growing dread, a heavy foreboding lies heavy across the lands.
Rumors of an ancient ancestral cult spreads on the wind… and the Dragon Masters wait; a sinister force lurking in the darkness, growing in the shadows. They are patient. Preparing. They will rise.
Hon, a 6 year-old boy, is stripped violently from his family, orphaned, and thrust into the conflict between the Dragon Masters and the lords of the lands.
As he grows, so does his hatred for the beasts. He enters the clash head-on, assembling a motley group of strong but all-too-human men.
Their ambition: to end the dragons and their Masters for good. But Hon continues to battle the terror, the wounds that threaten to overthrow his mind.
What readers think of the books
This story is an awesome mix of the fantasy that I love and the Christianity I emulate. the characters are fun and engaging; the situations are realistic, even with dragons mixed in. I am glad the second book is available now, but I will be waiting impatiently for the third book.S. Winston – Amazon Reviewer
This book is great for any age group – especially good for family/group reading. An epic adventure story with fantastic characters, great lore, and biblical truths throughout.Anonymous Amazon Reviewer
From the first scene I was drawn in to the story. It is important to me that I LIKE the characters and there are several to like here. Really do not have anything negative to write. One day that’s about all I did was read Dragon Slayer. At least I did get my kitchen cleaned! The book kept calling me back. I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series. Often times I read fiction and can’t remember the name of the book a week later. Not so with Dragon Slayer. Very good! Called my three sisters and they will be getting this book as well. Mr. Green, I hope you will want to write more Christian fiction. Thanks!Valerie B. – Amazon Reviewer
Carey Green is a gifted writer. Biblical Truths are weaved into his brilliant writings. Well-painted imagery and a capturing story line meet The Gospel told in a fiction story. It’s definitely a page turner despite my dyslexia. I looked for opportunities to pick up my kindle and get more reading done.E.S. Taz Bright – Amazon Reviewer
This book is marketed toward young adult males, I believe. However, I am a 30-something mom and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! The writing is not so geared toward teens or young adult that I felt like I was reading a kids book, but also not so advanced that it would be above a teen or young adult. I loved the themes and struggles that are common to us all that are weaved into the story. I do not usually read fantasy genre, but this author has written a book that was hard for me to put down. I would definitely recommend that anyone who enjoys reading pick up this book!! You won’t be disappointed.Amber Bunch – Amazon Reviewer
This was a hard book for me to get into since I am not a big fan of fantasy, but once I did I was hooked till the very last page. The story is amazing and has so much going on that you find yourself falling into the story walking with the characters through this epic adventure. Set in medieval times, the way the author opens the story using the book of Job from the Bible, which was a great move. It filled you with anticipation and a sense of foreboding before the book began. The author described scenes with such detail that you can picture them vividly and feel the fear, sadness and loss from the villages when the dragon arrives, terrorizes them and leaves them destroyed in every sense of the word. The character development is outstanding highlighting real-life struggles and issues. Silas is ruthless and unpredictable, while Hon (Honour) is emphatic, sensitive and full of love for others, two polar opposites, each with their own agenda to destroy and to protect. The story sticks to the Christian genre without being overdone really balancing the struggle of good and evil throughout. If you love mystery, suspense, fantasy, the struggles between good and evil than this this is a book for you.pirategrl1014 – Amazon Reviewer
About the books
Cast in a medieval setting, in earth’s distant past, this speculative tale imagines the existence of beastly dragons, the premiere predators of the animal kingdom. Though imaginative, I’ve done my best to write the series as realistically as I could, as life would have been had dragons truly co-existed with mankind.
But more importantly, the books are written to address real-life issues faced in modern times. The devastation of loss, grief, injury, and post traumatic stress disorder are woven into the stories. The character’s struggles with these issues is depicted honestly and in an attempt to treat such issues with the seriousness they deserve.
As well, the inevitable questions about God, faith, and the existence of evil that rise from such experiences are dealt with honestly, from scripture, and without trite or simplistic answers. Scripture is included (KJV) in a number of dialogues as spiritually mature characters speak into the lives of other characters, but it’s presented in a compassionate, non-preachy way. I believe you’ll find your faith in God strengthened and the truth of His majestic reign over human events magnified and honored.
One last thing… though the genre of these books is best categorized as “Christian low fantasy,” they contain no magic, sorcery, or demonic evil. In other words, no talking dragons, wizards, or demonic villains. The dragons represented in my books are beasts… my best characterization of what dragons would really be like if they existed in the course of human history.
But having said that I feel that I should issue a bit of a “PARENTAL WARNING“…
I don’t shy away from the reality of human evil and the heinous things evil people perpetrate in the world. There are a number of violent battle scenes, tragic and heart-wrenching losses, and passing descriptions of gore and fleshly wounds. I also depict the real-life “gray area” choices good people must make to protect the innocent and stand for virtue. My goal is to be realistic, without being overtly gross, allowing the reader’s imagination to craft the details of a situation from the basic descriptions provided.
How the books were written
These books come from stories I told to my older three kids when they were small. Bedtime, road trips, and many other occasions, my kids asked, “Dad, can you tell us a Hon story?”
I did… and they finally convinced me to put them into book form. The original stories my children heard were very much children’s-level stories of adventure and basic character that came impromptu from my own imagination.
But they didn’t remain the simple, innocent stories my children first heard once I began writing.
As the characters and storyline developed, I recognized an opportunity to use the power of a good story to highlight God’s activity and presence as we go through the heartaches and pains experienced in every human life. So they are not children’s stories in their present form… they are adult illustrations of faith in action amidst the difficulties of life.
