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.
Wow I thoroughly enjoyed Dragon Slayer: Beginnings! What a great first novel in what is sure to be an epic series!
From the very beginning Carey had me hooked and captured my heart with little Hon! From then on suspense, humility, fear, humbleness, and other amazing qualities flowed throughout all of the novel!
I was slightly hesitant on what kind of Biblical message this book would have, but there was so many that I was stunned! Carey really shows what it means to be a man after God's own heart and what God's role is for these men in the family as well as community! Plus, he really portrays the beauty of God being God in our lives and that deep love He has for us! I was so humbled by many scenes with Stewart and Hon because they were discovering this in a very slow, painful journey!
The story itself is fantastic! The description of the places really made me feel as if I was there! I felt like I was just a random outsider sitting in with the characters while they talked about dragons or were encouraging one another! However I will mention that at first it can be a little confusing because there is no set one main character for the duration of the book! I didn't personally mind this because I enjoyed seeing what was going through different character's minds throughout the novel, but I wanted to mention it!
If your into fantasy don't miss this one! It is not only filled with action and suspense, but there is a deep Biblical foundation that does not go unnoticed! I was not only entertained, but greatly inspired and encouraged! I can't wait for book two this fall!
I give Dragon Slayer: Beginnings a 5 out of 5 stars!
