Under the Lesser Moon by Shelly Campbell
Title: Under the Lesser Moon
Author: Shelly Campbell
Series: The Marked Son (Book 1)
Publication Date: Nov. 7, 2020
Publisher: Mythos & Ink
Synopsis: “Dragons once led our people across the wastelands, away from storms, and toward hunting grounds.”
That’s what the elders say, but Akrist has squinted at empty skies his whole life. The dragons have abandoned them, and it’s Akrist’s fault. He’s cursed. Like every other firstborn son, he has inherited the sins of his ancestors. In his camp, he’s the only eldest boy left. Something happened to the others. Something terrible.
When Akrist befriends Tanar, an eldest boy from another tribe, he discovers the awful truth: they’re being raised as sacrifices to appease the Goddess and win back her dragons. The ritual happens when the dual moons eclipse. Escape is the only option, but Akrist was never taught to hunt or survive the wastelands alone. Time is running out, and he has to do something before the moons touch.

Nice! So many good classics!
I haven’t seen this before, but it sounds so good! I just added it to my TBR.
Nice! It’s a bit darker than my normal read but really immersive.
