It is a strange childhood for a kid, to be adopted by the restless Mother Mastiff and raised in the bustling marketplace of Drallar. Flinx never knew the mom and dad who abandoned him years ago. In fact, his birth has always been shrouded in mystery. But Flinx eventually discovers that his unknown parents have left him a curious legacy - extraordinary mental powers that are both a marvelous gift and a dreaded curse.
This double-edged legacy will lead Flinx, along with his loyal protector, the mini-dragon Pip, on a harrowing journey in search of the truth . . . about who he is and where he comes from. It is a daring adventure that brings him to another world - and into the clutches of one of the most evil and powerful men in the galaxy. . . .

As always Flinx finds trouble...or it finds him, but he manages to get out of it!!

I loved the story
Flinx & Pip of course
yes. But there needed to be a pause when he changed from the main characters to a secondary story-line. Always confusing thinking that the story of the main characters was continuing but discovering 1/2 way thru that it was a different set of characters - confusing and irritating.
