Dragon's Blood by Jane Yolen
The story of Jakkin and the dragon pits of Austar IV fed both my curiosity and my imagination. Its an easy read with a fulfilling story. If you like Ender's Game and The Blue Sword, you'll like Dragon's Blood.
Yolen shares her wisdom on human relationships through the dialog and interactions between the "bonders" and the "masters" that was a stark allegory for our winning and losing mentality in society today. I was shocked by this concept: Do you have the courage to be free? The idea of freedom is presented as the responsibility of being your own man instead of a slave to your fear.
