OUTCAST by Cheryl Matthynssens
I recently finished OUTCAST by Cheryl Matthynssens. The heartwarming tale of a half-breed boy, Alador, who is caught between two very different kingdoms. One kingdom reveres dragons and seeks to protect them while the other will do anything to acquire the magical properties of their blood.
From the author's webpage, dragonsgeas.com :
The First of the Series, Outcast introduces the Great Isle set in the world of Vesta. Two kingdoms interdependent upon one another with vastly different philosophies about dragons and magic vie for survival.
A young half-breed finds a set of dragon bones and a enormous bloodstone that will change his life forever. Meet young Alador, the village outcast and follow him to discover what happens when one receives a geas from a dragon. Nothing will ever be the same!
4 out of 5 stars, but only because of its slow start. Otherwise this is definitely a 5-star book!
