Tales of Arnar: Shelter Boy
It's a Magically Matriarchal world, and Mark is nothing but a nobody boy, abandoned by his Mother, and raised in a Shelter like an unloved pet. Things are looking up though: a family's going to adopt him! He'll finally have a home, safety, and the comfort that comes with "belonging".
But life is never that simple. Can he overcome the stigma of being a "Shelter Boy"? Can he bring honor to his family, despite their strange beliefs? And when the time comes, can he give up what he's learned to love the most?
Update Schedule: Whenever I feel like it. This is a secondary novel (search my name to see my primary), so I work on it when the mood hits me.
