Searching for Fantasy novel

I’m going to try to give what information that I can about a book I read when I was in my early teens (2004-2006). It was a fantasy novel, it had a main character who was a young boy, from a farmer family I believe. The front cover I am pretty sure had art of this character plus a creature that I am pretty sure he is connected to through some form or another of magic passed down from his mother I think. The creature is a beast made of the earth (mud, stone, grass etc.) and I seem to remember a mention of a barrier of trees which the boy had to be taken to. I’m sorry this is so vague but it’s all I can remember however I do remember it being very captivating and would love to find it again. The character may have been named talon but I don’t know for sure.
