Overview

A boy goes on the run in this fast-paced fantasy debut. Can a zero become a hero? Testing Day is supposed to be a day of celebration for Al Pilgrommor. Born into a wealthy family, he expects to follow in his successful father's footsteps. Of course, that all depends on the rank number Al receives at the testing. The higher the rank he has tattooed onto his neck, the better his life will be. To his surprise and horror, Al is revealed to be rank zero, the lowest of the low. He's now not only an outcast - he's also a danger to his entire family. So Al goes on the run, fleeing the brutal Cullers, men who hunt down zeroes . . . and put them to death. Cast out of his home, cut off from his friends, and armed with only a sword and his wits, Al is reduced to just surviving. As he meets other outcasts, however, he begins to suspect that he is a pawn in a larger game - and that he might have the power to tip the scales in a high-stakes struggle between man and dragon.

This is a great adventure book, good for all ages. It has a likeable hero, some great side kicks- a good villain that you don't realize is a villain until the end- and it creates a wonderful world that I am just itching to read more about- hope this turns into a series!

I love worlds of magic, particularly well-written ones with believable characters. Dragon Run certainly qualifies. When Al is forced to run for his life, he's not an instant hero--just a boy trying to figure out what to do. The story was well paced and interesting, and kept me turning pages to find out what where Al's journey would take him and his friends. Loved the twist toward the end! Dragon Run is a thoroughly enjoyable read.
