Publisher's Summary

Jakkin, a 15-year-old bond boy, works with many others in Sarkkhan's worm farm/nursery on the desert planet Austar IV. Jakkin plans to steal a baby dragon from the farm to raise, hoping to train the dragon to fight and earn him enough money to buy himself out of bond, as well as the dragon's freedom.

Eventually, with the help of Akki, a girl at the nursery, he succeeds and names his dragon Heart's Blood. After a year of training and growing, Akki arranges a way for Jakkin and his beautiful red dragon to engage in their first battle.

    "Great story, weird voices"

    I love this story and the narrator was decent except some of the voices were really weird.

    "Old story but good"

    This was subjected by a friend. It was a slow start but was drawn in by the characters.

    "Love the book, mediocre narrator"

    This book has been with me for a long time, and I'm listening to it again for fun. It's too similar to the Pern novels to have 5 stars on its own, but it's very good all the same.

    The narrator was overdramatic in some places and ridiculous in others. The voice he made for the cook sounded like a Monty Python sketch about Slovakian women. Not a compliment. Sure, every character had their own voice, but they were heavy handed at best.
