Overview

From bestselling author Alan Dean Foster, an exciting early Pip and Flinx novel that shows the origins of a certain boy with special powers—and the mini-dragon that becomes his devoted sidekick. . . .

Flinx was just a freckle-faced, redheaded kid with green eyes and a strangely compelling stare when Mather Mastiff first saw him an the auctioneer's block. One hundred credits and he was hers.

For years the old woman was his only family. She loved him, fed him, taught him everything she knew—even let him keep the deadly flying dragon he called Pip. But when Mother Mastiff mysteriously disappears, Flinx tails her kidnappers on a dangerous journey. Across the forests and swamps of the winged world called Moth, their only weapons are Pip’s venom . . . and Flinx’s unusual talent.

It's a fast paced adventure. I'd also recommend other Pip & Flinx novels.

First book of an amazing series. Love the characters, the universe and incredible potential of Flinx.

This is a re-read, I read it before and when I saw it as an e-book I bought it so I could re-read it. Half way through I remembered that it is the first in a series, so the story is finished, but not really. Some things are not explained so you know there is more. This is science-fiction so you do have to suspend believability at points, but what I liked is the non-earthly details meshed, they were all consistent. Like the author had created a blueprint for his 'world' and stuck to it. It had a good plot, the main plot was easy to follow, the subplots not so much but added interesting details. There was action and character development in the right amounts for the plot.
