Wild Born - Brandon Mull
Wild Born is the first novel in the Spirit Animals series. This book is free for the kindle. There are games and other media available with this story. In the world of Erdas, each child must drink the nectar at age eleven to see if they can call a spirit animal. Four children, one from each of the four lands of Erdas, call the four great beasts who died in the last war. The four fallen have been called for a reason. Erdas is in peril. The Devourer has also returned. This is a great story. The children who call the great beasts are all different, as are the beasts themselves. The challenges they face, and the evil that is rising are daunting, but the children are up to the task. There's a cliff hanger of sorts, but the story ends well. Highly recommended.
