This book felt like the perfect story when I read it.
John
Their numbers are reduced to three dragons, one stuck behind them and the other two, Bazil being one of them, fighting a great troll named Puxdool.

I love this book, this book is singlehandedly the one thing that made me such an avid reader. This book is a very original piece centering around a sword wielding dragon and his dragon boy. If you read this book expecting the dragon to be an intelligent creature almost like a human, you might be sorely disappointed, but that is still no reason to put this book aside. It is a fresh new look on fantasy and has extremely realistic characters and scenerios and worth the read. However, later books in the series get a little boring and tired out.

The people who may not enjoy this appear to be the ones not open to new ideas or a change of scenery in the fantasy world. So if you like your classic fantasy tales, then avoid this book. But if you like the oddball fantasy about a sword swinging dragon, then read this.

What can I say? The Bazil Broketail series is one of the best fantasy series I've ever read (the other ones being Dragonlance, Discword, Prydain, The Dark is Rising, Krondor, His Dark Materials, and the Earthsea quartet). It is based on a world of powerful necromancers, witches, wizards, elves, dwarves, Battledradons, and men. It goes into amazing detail no matter what page you read. It explains the political system of the relam, the organization of the armies of Argonath are so detailed that I bet you'll never find anything that goes so indepth. What really got me, however, is the fighting between individual characters is so detailed that it feels like you actually there watching the fight happenning! For any fantasy genre reader, this is a must have! Even if you don't like fantasy you will enjoy it? Even military and action readers admit this book deserves at least 4 stars! I've read the series 3 times! It never gets old!

Bazil Broketail is one of the most addictive, exciting and fun to read books I have ever read. It includes amazing fight scenes, exciting plot twists and simply phenominal charachter developement. You follow the lady Lagdalen and orphan boy Relkin through marching legions, intense clashes with imps and trolls, powerfull sorcery, and much more, not to mention the Dragons with their gargantuan strength. A masterful beginning to the wonderful set of books. If you enjoy any of the above, even a little you will be rapt with attention the whole way through. But don't take my word for it, read Bazil Broketail yourself and experiences its greatness first hand.

This book pulls you in, and keeps pulling. The Story has a way of making you to read more. Bazil and his Dragonboy Relkin are my fav characters in the book, I for one like this book because the story is so nicely writen. Christopher has outdone himself, He has brought people to read his books, He is the greatest writer of all time, besides Issac Asimov.

I first heard of this book series from a friend who picked up the last in the series and was reading it at school. When my family and I went to London, I found it in a bookstore and picked up the first one in Rowley's Battledragon series- Bazil Broketail. This book is awesome. I read it whenever I had some time- Usually on the London Underground (Mind the gap). It tells the story of a young 14-year old orphanboy named Relkin and his wyvern/battledragon, Bazil, who live in a world called Ryeleth, a world of giant dragons, wizards, witches, and numerous other creatures. Relkin and Bazil journey from their home to join the Leigons Army, and Bazil has to compete with other wyverns for the privelege. During one battle, Bazil's tail end is chopped off. Because I won't spoil this for you, I'll just say that his tail end is replaced, but it is bent at an odd angle, making it look broken. Hence, Bazil gets th name Broketail. Around the time Bazil joins the Leigons, the Princess of Marneri is kidnapped, and it is up to a powerful witch, Lessis, the Queen of Birds, to get her back. With her assistant Lagdalen, she enlists the help of the dragon brigade the 109th, Bazil and Relkin's. They end up fighting for their lives in the stronghold of the Doom, a great rock full of powerful magic and a strong brain. Their numbers are reduced to three dragons, one stuck behind them and the other two, Bazil being one of them, fighting a great troll named Puxdool. Now, it is up to Relkin, Lagdalen, Lessis, and Bazil to destroy the Doom and save Princess Besetia, the hope of Marneri. Bazil as well as the other characters are wonderful characters that are intelligent, and the wyverns are creatures one can easily understand, thanks to Christopher Rowley.Read more ›

The dragons and dragonboys make this book. While not a battle scene afficiando, I couldn't wait for the next scene to see the characters interacting with one another in their chosen field. Rowley does some wonderful character development with both the dragons and the boys. While the plot may be predictable, one keeps reading just to find out more about the characters. The inter-dragon squabbles and the fierce loyalty between the dragons and thier boys keeps the story from being just another "dragon and his boy" story. Rowley doesn't develope so much as just let the characters bounce off one another. While the plot does get a little slow and tedious, it sets the scene for the next books, which are must-reads. Now that the reader has invested so much in the characters, the reader just has to pick up the next book and see how Bazil and Relkin are doing
