Vetch is a serf/slave turned dragon boy, and by lucky happenstance, attracts the attention of Ari, a compassionate Jouster. He learns the ways of dragon rearing, and dreams of raising a dragon of his own.

I stumbled across this series by way of The Dragon Quintet, which contained a short story that was later expanded into Joust. I enjoyed the characters/story enough to pick this up, and eventually, the rest of the series. The book is a fun, page-turner, with characters that draw you into the world. The style/story closely resembles the Dragon Riders of Pern. The plot is a formulaic rags-to-riches-esque romp, but I liked it enough that I didn't mind.
