Poor Kiron - discovering that the his dream of freedom wasn't everything it was cut out to be but also more then he dared hope for. Great continuation of this story.

Vetch escapes to Alta! Alta is a bit different than his home land. But all is not what it seems either.I enjoyed the in depth storyline on how to raise a dragon. The time spent raising the dragon reminded me of Ms. McCaffrey's dragon rider series.I recommend this book to other dragon lovers.
