Prey: The Drovers, Book 1 by John D. Brown (7/10)
Looks like I am ending the year on a YA fiction kick. Prey is the story of a young boy (aren't they all) who takes a job as a cattle herder for a mysterious wizardish guy. Yes, it's mostly a thrilling tale of cattle herding. There are hints of magic and all that fantasy stuff but this is mostly about a kid who wants to show that he can do this job like a man, a manny, man man. You know what, it's rather entertaining for what it is.
