Life's tough if you're a boy named Gisbo. Besides having a name that means "dog" in a barbaric tongue and being forced to live all alone in a manure shack outside the city walls, Gisbo has also never soared on a flying sword, raised a boon animal, or made a single friend.
When he isn't washing the graffiti off his shack, Gisbo's time is spent dodging insults from his spoiled classmates and fighting for his life against the city's arrogant clash team. But all of that is going to change. Gisbo is finally sixteen and ready to try out for Elekai' training in hopes of becoming an Elekai' warrior, his biggest dream. However, when the tryouts go terribly wrong, Gisbo is whisked away to a life he never dreamed possible and learns that sometimes, truth can be stranger than legend when you're Renegade born.

Sonny did an admirable job and I found very few flaws in his performance his characters where distinct and varied.
As I stated earlier, this book has more than its share of humor, sometimes tending towards the low brow, but it is still nice to see
I blew through this book so fast that I am already on to the next, this may not be conventional y/a fantasy, but it is engaging enough for all ages and once you get in to the story you will probably do the same thing as I did and go straight in to the next book in the series.
Thank You for a great story
Fast. Action. Fulfilling
The age old but never cliche hero that comes from nothing but finds out he's so much more.
In this book it's Falcon.
The part where even though Falcon is covered in crap he still manages to give Gisbo some fantastic fatherly advice. It was humorous and moving.
J.C Fiske starts off his series with a BANG. Fun characters and an interesting story will keep you coming back for more.
Worst piece of narration that I have suffered through to date!
Good story, but will not continue the series due to the narrator
With in the top ten
The chronicles of luminaries series, and maybe king of swords: the starfolk
He was pretty good
Maybe a two or three sitter
I really like the idea and plot but it was hard to follow the narrator sometime I couldn't tell wen he wen from one person to another like I usually can.
I heard about this series through a friend and I am so glad I did. If you are into action/adventure/fantasy books, then this is the right book for you!! I don't want to give anything away so I will just say this- if you are looking for a book to entertain you and one that you wont want to put down- look no further than this one. Enjoy!
