By Scott Kennedy on 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.

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!

I really enjoyed the book. It is my third favorite in the series. The copper dragon is well developed. Perhaps he could be a little more assertive instead of things just happening to him. One thing that I do not like across the whole series is the blood letting. There seems to be too much concentration on blood, which is kinda gross. Otherwise the series is pretty good for older readers!

The age of fire saga continues. This book tells the story of the third hatchling, the outcast without a name. the world they live in becomes even more expanded, and just begins to delve into the politics of said world. I highly enjoyed this book!

excellent book in a wonderful series of books. the whole series is a great read. the first three books in the series all occur at the same time, from different perspectives. then the story takes off together in the fourth book. I don't want to give away anything, but I will give this series a must read status. I will look for other works by this author.

The first three books in the series focus (individually) on the three siblings, telling things from their point of view while weaving a larger plot, and I found myself completely surprised by this book — I didn’t think I could have any sympathy for The Copper, but his point of view as told in this book made me want to reach through the pages and give him a hug.

Definitely worth the time, though to provide full disclosure without giving away the plot, the quality of the last 2 books in the series took a marked step down from the first 4 (plot errors, typos, character inconsistencies, etc). I'd still read it though I wish the series had a stronger ending.

I was kind of Hoping and sort of predicting what wold hapen in this book, i wont spoil it for you. Spoilers "But basicaly wen i finished reading Dragon Avenger i kind of had the idea that there wold be a third Survivir hachling and that made me kind of mad cause i did not want to reead a nother storry of how this guy/girl came to be..."

Anyways Spoilers aside sorry about that. . . it is still a good book is just the start i felt it was a bit aquard knowing already what happened, and that is probably made this book fell a bit SLOW. . . after all of that it starts to pick up it's slack doe and turns in to a killing machine witch mind you i mean that metaphorically,
Anyways is a good Read if you got the time go ahead and pick it up and also read the previous books, although i don't think it maters if you red the previous 2 books i wold recommend you do so just so you don't get lost...

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.
