Pit Dragon Chronicles #1
4 of 5 Stars
This starts out from the scifi standpoint, with starships, galactic empires, etc.
And then you have dragons.
Then you get a really great story about a boy on the cusp of manhood who steals a dragon and raises it to successfully fight in the Dragon Pit [hence the Pit Dragon Trilogy]. And there is a girl.
This book holds up well. Meant for children and ya, it certainly tells a story that an adult can enjoy as well.
