The Griffin's Boy
In a world where only those of noble birth are invited to join the elite Griffin Riders, orphan Neb is destined for a life of drudgery. His path changes when he steals the disobedient young griffin Balkind in an attempt to prove that you don't need noble blood to become a hero. He'll risk his life and soul to become a mere Griffin's Boy. He'll also lose his heart to the enigma known as Samara.
