5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Rashomon March 3, 2008
Format:Paperback
Like so many great stories, E.E. Knight's Age of Fire series is about a family and what happens when that family is torn apart. Admittedly, this family has claws and wings and the ability to breathe fire, but the emotional core underneath resonates, even as the books oscillate between tragedy and playfulness, thoughtfulness and pulp action. If Ursula K. Le Guin and Edgar Rice Burroughs had collaborated on a series of dragon books, the result might have been something like Age of Fire.

Whereas other dragon books tend to either regurgitate fantasy clichés or use dragons as really neat horses, E.E. Knight's dragons are something else entirely. Anyone with an interest in the behaviors of birds, reptiles, or dinosaurs will find the instincts of Knight's dragons refreshing. They behave like top predators from the moment they hatch, and watching them evolve from ravenous beasts to thinking beasts is worth the price of admission.

Knight's plots speed along, as addictive and rich as really good coffee. I have trouble setting his books down. That he manages to confront troubling issues (racism, slavery, and genocide) within the format of a page-turner makes these books a stimulating read for both teenagers and adults.

This is one of the most under-rated fantasy series currently being published. Plus, the first three books (Champion, Avenger, Outcast) can actually be read in any order. Plus, it's like Rashomon with dragons. Do yourself a favor and buy them. They're a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The not-so-good Dragon Who Stole My Heart December 4, 2007
Format:Paperback
This is one of the most well written Dragon Tales of all time. It's dark, funny, completely unpredictable, and our main character is not a good guy/dragon, but you'll sympathize with him anyway. You don't have to start at the beginning of the series either. Each dragon's tale stands alone and these are my most favorite dragons EVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written , again... December 17, 2007
Format:Paperback
I absolutely love these books. They are great. The whole take on them is something very new, and something I loved when I read the first book in the series. This isn't the best in the series, but by no means is it bad. I guess I'll just have to try and wait patiently for the next and last(?) book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Underdog in Dragons' Scales March 16, 2009
Format:Paperback
I never could help rooting for an underdog! Since the beginning of this series, I have been wondering what happened to the copper hatchling that was injured and driven from the cozy egg shelf.

This third book of the series is even more emotionally complex and poignant than the first two. All of the dragon hatchlings lost their family. But the copper (or the Copper, as the book calls him) lost his family twice...

This story, filled with the last hatchling's courage, persistence, bad luck, and (eventually) good luck and growing morality, is absolutely engrossing. The maneuverings, plots and politics of a royal family are all here in the dragons' world in the Lavadome.

I am impressed by Knight's integrity in creating all the books of his series in such a fashion that they can all be read and appreciated independently as outstanding books, and yet create an even greater whole together. This is turning into an impressive work on the series level.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh view December 23, 2007
By A Customer
Format:Kindle Edition
A good new look from a dragons point of view. No human dragon riders here, or cute talking horse like mounts. It is a refreshing new way to examine dragons with a great developing plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! March 9, 2009
Format:Paperback
Through both of the previous editions in the series (Dragon Champion and Dragon Avenger) I learned to despise "the Copper" as much as AuRon and Wistala. In Dragon Outcast, I learned to sympathize with him, and deeply enjoyed his travels. One of the standout portions of the book is the Copper's travels underground with his bat companions. The well-developed supporting characters bring the world of these dragons alive.

The ending of this book will bring satisfying closure to some plot threads opened earlier in the series, and will open the gates to the next 3 books in the Age of Fire, starting with Dragon Strike!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perspective and a view of Dragon Society March 1, 2008
Format:Paperback
If you've been following this series (and you really should be if you like dragons at all), you probably know this book is the one about the Copper- the Outcast. From the first two books it was easy to place this dragon as the 'bad guy'. This book is from his perspective and I think it is an important perspective to take. Few things are black and white and this character that was so easy to cast off as a despised traitor in the first part of the series suddenly becomes a complex individual. We get to see how he struggles with his mistakes and essentially grows up in dragon society.

I love the Age of Fire series- they are a look at dragons as I'd always hoped: dragons as their own entities, without making them big scaly mounts to 'dragonriders' or making them overly malevolent or benevolent- they just are. This is a no-frills realistic type of fantasy that is easy to believe in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A massive improvement over the first two books. October 22, 2008
Format:Paperback
Please do note that all opinions expressed in the following review are, as all opinions are bound to be, highly subjective and personal.

In the third book of this series, Mr. Knight shows a definite improving trend in his writing. While Auron of book one was frankly annoying to me and Wistala slightly less so, Mr. Knight very effectively manages to get me to empathise with Rugaard, using literary methods which in the hands of lesser authors would definitely have turned me off. The angst and pain Rugaard goes through are definitely warranted and not cheapened, thrown away or shrugged off. In all, this was a reasonably good read, and I agree the series is highly underrated as a whole.

The pros:

Rugaard's character development is much more extensively detailed than AuRon's or Wistala's; we're not only allowed to explore his motivations for doing what he does, which is vital for building character empathy, but also allowed to follow an antagonist's "start of darkness", to see Rugaard's hatred for his family--and his brother in particular--to fester and consume him, to feel his loneliness, to see his heart harden and his loathing for the hominid races cement itself--all while remaining a sympathetic and likable character. That in the end, we're allowed to understand why Rugaard does what he does, and while we may not agree with his actions, we are aware of his motivations and can empathise--for if we were in his position, who are we to say we wouldn't behave the same way?

This, in my opinion, is far more interesting than Auron's struggles in book one, which I feel were far too easily resolved and seemed to pop randomly out of nowhere, or goody-two shoes Wistala.
