Alta (Dragon Jousters #2) by Mercedes Lackey | Epic Fantasy | Book Review

National best-selling fantasy legend Mercedes Lackey created a vivid, dynamic fusion of the Upper and Lower Kingdoms of ancient Egypt with the most exciting, authentic and believable portrayal of dragons ever imagined. In the second novel in Mercedes Lackey's richly-conceived Dragon Jousters series, the dragonrider Vetch escapes to Alta, the subjugated land of his birth. There, he hopes to teach his people to raise and train dragons-and build an army that will liberate his homeland.

Alta (Dragon Jousters, #2)

♥ Mini Review ♥
The story of Vetch has now become the story of Kiron, Son of Kiron. No longer is he Vetch the serf or even Vetch the dragon boy. To be accepted by the people of his birth he must go through a rebirth of self. He must become Kiron the Jouster not just outwardly, but inwardly as well. And this is not as easy as it might sound.
