Life’s tough if you’re a boy named Gisbo. Besides having a name that means "dog" in a barbaric tongue and being forced to live all alone in a manure shack outside the city walls, Gisbo has also never soared on a flying sword, raised a boon animal, or made a single friend.

When he isn’t washing the graffiti off his shack, Gisbo’s time is spent dodging insults from his spoiled classmates and fighting for his life against the city’s arrogant clash team.

But all of that is going to change. Gisbo is finally sixteen and ready to try out for Elekai’ training in hopes of becoming an Elekai’ warrior, his biggest dream. However, when the tryouts go terribly wrong, Gisbo is whisked away to a life he never dreamed possible and learns that sometimes, truth can be stranger than legend when you’re Renegade born.

Ive read many fantasy series in my day but this is something unlike anything Ive encountered. At times it had a manga feel where others it was epic fantasy at its best. I just sure hope the sequel can live to this. Nothing worse than a series that pitters out before it starts.

I heard about this series through a friend and I am so glad I did. If you are into action/adventure/fantasy books, then this is the right book for you!! I don't want to give anything away so I will just say this- if you are looking for a book to entertain you and one that you wont want to put down- look no further than this one. Enjoy!

A great coming of age tale of a struggling boy who overcomes huge obstacles to embrace his dreams. The book is also really fun and action packed although it can get kinda deep with philosophy in some parts. I def recommend this and I'm looking forward to the sequel!

I had a hard time putting this one down. Wonderful characters and plenty of action. The characters are very likable and the villains are interesting as well. a very enjoyable book..
