I am a huge fan of Anne McCaffrey and her Harper Hall Trilogy, so I've pretty much avoided all other dragon books--I mean, who could compete with her?

So that's my excuse why I haven't previously read any of R.D. Henham's Dragon books (The Dragon Codices.)

But, I had the opportunity to read The Brass Dragon Codex, and I now feel suitably repentant as to say, this was a darn good book and I will happily read the others and any new books Henham cooks up.

The Brass Dragon Codex tells the story of a lonely and talkative Brass Dragon who befriends a rather egocentric gnome. The unlikely pair turn out to be good for each other though and they both learn a lot from their friendship.

There is a subtle moral to the story: To have good friends, you must first BE a good friend.

My eight year old son snagged this book from me and finished it before I did. He said he loved it, and he's an astute reader. I believed him that it was good--but I have to add my hearty hurrah to his. The Brass Dragon Codex is a truly enjoyable book. It was a fast and friendly read, enjoyable for both me and my son.

If you love dragons as much as I do, love a good story with the thrill of adventure, then you'll love R.D. Henham's Brass Dragon Codex.

Enjoy!

Brass Dragon Codex
In a world where Dragons haunt the sky looking for victims, no one feels safe.
That is until they come face to face with the Brass Dragon.

Hector, a gnome, has invented a device that will be his life's quest. He will change the communication between the gnome and the dwarf kingdoms. But, how will he prove his invention works, if no one will believe in him?

At a time when even his best friend Amber has deserted him, Hector finds a great friend in Tumbleweed, the orphaned dragon who has come to save his life. The only problem is, Brass Dragons love to talk. The dragon has found someone to talk to and he isn't about to let Hector go. Will Hector be able to prove himself? Will the Brass Dragon ever let him go? Will Hector be able to keep his invention away from thieves and men who wish to use his device to do evil?

I really enjoyed Rebecca Shelley as a scribe for R. D. Henham. She has a cleaver use of words and her plot kept me wanting more. This is a cute and quirky tale of the Brass Dragon, although he is small for a dragon, he became a powerful ally for a dwarf on a mission.

This is not something I would have picked up on my own, however the wonderful folks over at monsterlibrarian.com send me a copy to review, and I have to admit that it was quite an enjoyable read.

This is a very simple and straightforward tale of friendship, and what it takes to be a friend. That to have friends you have to make sure that first of all YOU are a good friend. Our story starts with a young Brass Dragon discovering that his parents have been done in by an evil Blue dragon. The little dragon is lonely and unhappy now that he is living alone and looks high and low for a friend. Meanwhile a little gnome gets himself kicked out of the city for an invention gone wrong - but he has an even better idea, if only people would listen to him.

Our dragon and our gnome cross paths in the desert and learn the truth about friendship while helping eachother to reach their goals. It's a really sweet story that many will enjoy. For the adults, there may be a bit lacking in the character department, but I handed this book off to my 11 year old son and it seems to be right up his alley. I would recommend this for the 10 and up crew depending on their reading ability.

The Brass Dragon Codex by R.D. Henham (assisted dutifully by Rebecca Shelley) is one of those really quick and fun children's books. I read it in record time and really enjoyed the quirky characters--especially Kyani, the very young brass dragon--who calls himself "Tumbleweed." I mean, come on, no dragon tells his true name to a person he just met, especially if said person happens to be a crazy gnome inventor named Hector with some crazy scheme to change the entire world with his "sender-receiver" machine.

There are a lot of really crazy situations in this book, and I can only imagine how funny The Brass Dragon Codex will be to parents reading it out loud to their delighted kids.

Happy reading!

My fifteen-year-old, fantasy loving daughter loved this book. It caught her attention after the first few chapters and held it until the end. She said it was better than several of the other dragon books she'd read lately. I also read it, and found that while it lacked a little emotional content, the action turned it into a young reader page turner.

When Rebecca asked volunteers to review the newest book in the Dragon Codex series, I immediately jumped at the chance. I went to her first book party, and definitely wanted to read the next book written by her - Rebecca Shelley (aka R.D. Henham).

Every gnome has a Life Quest, the need to create an invention, and Hector and his friend Amber are no exception. Hector's latest invention causes lots of trouble for everyone. Shem, the human leader tells him to leave the city of Kaal and never return. During this adventure, he meets an orphaned brass dragon, many dangerous creatures in the desert, knights, dwarves, a thief, and the vicious blue dragon.

The important lesson learned in this story is that communication is important. Tumbleweed, the orphaned baby dragon is always talking. He interrupts, and never listens. Hector realizes that he is just like the dragon. He never pays attention to his friend Amber or to the dragon. Hector learned it's no good to keep talking and never listen.

If you like dragons and gnomes, Brass Dragon Codex is a book with plenty of action. It's part of a companion series to Mirrorstone's Practical Guide to Dragon books.
