I first read this book as a young teenager and because of it fell in love with the whole concept of dragons. This book and it's sequel 'Heart's Blood' tells the story of a boy with the courage to take a risk in order to give himself a better future, by stealing a dragon and training it to fight. Within this story is another plot, which is expanded further in the sequel. Any more info would spoil the story, but I'd recommend it to any young adult who can open their mind to possibilities.

I really liked this book. If you are really into dragons and wizards- like I am!- this book is for you. I think the author did a very good job discribing the planet and the livestyles of those who live there. I felt almost like I was a bonder living on the planet. I can't wait to read the sequel!

Like other reviewers, I read this book 'the first time round', the best part of a quarter of a century ago. I have fond memories of my local library's heavy hard-back copy.

It's quite embarrassing and rather humbling on re-reading it now to discover just how well Jane Yolen knows the buttons to push to make a story appeal to a young teenage boy, and to see how deliberately she is doing so. Her skill has to be admired, given that she herself has never been a young teenage boy!

Although the first of four books, this stands on its own as a coming-of-age novel. The austere penal-colony world is beautifully and economically evoked, the protagonist is easy for the intended audience to like and relate to, and the plot does exactly what it says on the tin. The following three book (and especially the third) lack the atmosphere and charm of this first book, and turn the hero, Jakkin, into a bit of a dim bumbler, but are still enjoyable, and help flesh-out the world by forming a bigger story.
