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.

    "can't even listen to it"

    I loved this book as a kid and wanted to revisit it but I received an error message each and every time I tried to play it. Worthless. At least it was free through my Amazon account. I would have been upset and disappointed if I had paid for an audio book that didn't work.

    I won't be recommending audible to anyone any time soon...

    Story
    "Dragon's Blood (Pit Dragon Chronicles"

    This was one of those kindle books that come with a free audible. The narration was great with each voice distinct amazing for a woman. And this is a Dragon tale off the beaten path. A former penal colony where dragons were natural to the planet.

    Also a coming of age too. A fast read, if you have KU notice that the little headphones grove on over to Amazon.

    "Surprisingly good"

    Wasn't expecting much, and is usually too short for my taste to buy. But it was very good! Liked the story in all manner of science fiction and fantasy blend.

    "Good fantasy."

    Good young/adult teen short fantasy. Narration is subpar in a few places. Still worth the time.

    "Old story but good"

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