The story begins with Jenka, a teenage youth who is stalking a stag through the woods. Hes left with no option but to guard the downed stag through the night to prevent scavengers from getting to it, but ends up mixed in a fight between a young dragon and trolls. He helps the dragon, and is in turn saved by it from the trolls and given a little of the dragons magical strength. The next day hes found by people from his village, and he stretches the truth of the encounter a bit, but his notable deed is still found to be worth of becoming closer to his goal of being a Kings Ranger.
To make a long summary shorter, these events see Jenka in the midst of a war between orcs, goblins, etc and humans and dragons. The lack of friendship humans and dragons share, having a history of hunting and eating each other, makes this all the more difficult.
The writing is adequately detailed, bringing the world and its various inhabitants and their quirks alive. Sometimes the pacing is faster or jumpier than it needs to be. Some sentences are a little too long for their own good, and become a bit confusing and peppered with too many commas. However, for the most part, it looks fairly well edited and each character has a unique voice. The book is also a good length, providing a few afternoons of entertainment.
