Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
AGERANGE: Ages 15 to adult.

The third book in the Age of Fire cycle concerns Copper, the dragon hatchling maimed and expelled from the nest at the beginning of Dragon Champion. The events from the first part of that book are played out from Copper’s point of view, including his betrayal of his family to a dwarf raid. When the dwarves betray him in turn, Copper flees further into the subterranean world. Accompanied by a colony of bats, he makes his way to the Lavadome, where he is welcomed and adopted by the Tyr, the ruling dragon. Given the name of Rugaard, the Copper enters into a whole new life as a resident of the Lavadome and member of the Drakwatch. His new home is a place of political intrigue and power plays, but he does well for himself, gaining rank and respect. As in his previous books, Knight makes his characters unique and appealing. The reader can’t help but admire the feisty Copper as he overcomes each trial. Knight incorporates humor into his story, such as the bats that follow the Copper everywhere, ingratiating themselves to him for a sip or two of drake blood. These bats would tug their forelocks, if they had them. Knight’s talent for storytelling serves him well, engaging and engrossing the reader immediately. The Copper’s trials seem almost unbearable, but his perseverance is remarkable, and the novel ends on a strong note. The book stands alone well enough, but the experience would be enhanced by having read the previous books. Point wannabe dragon riders in the direction of this series. Reviewer: Donna Scanlon

    Great Series!

    As the third book in the "Age of Fire" series, "Dragon Outcast" is every bit as entertaining as the first two. My favorite element of these books is that you see the world through the eyes of dragons, and Knight does an excellent job of evoking the true nature of the beast - they're not just creatures with 'human' thoughts and perceptions. This series is a wonderful addition to any sci-fi/fantasy library!<BR/><BR/>If you liked this series, you might also enjoy "Joust" by Mercedes Lackey and "Dragonflight" by Anne McCaffrey as both were excellent dragon books!

    a wonderful story that should be cherished by everyone

    a great story about a dragon who looses his family, but later finds a new one. This book is one of a kind with thrilling fights, a gripping love story, and parts that almost made me cry. I will personaly continue to read for all time.

    Age limits?

    Is this okay for a ten year old? I love dragons and would love to read the series, but i'm wondering if it is appropriate for my age.

    Awesome Book!

    I read the first two books about a year ago, and was sad that the next ones weren't in my library, but then I found this. It is a fascinating book! I was curious as to how E E Knight could make the 'dragon outcast' a lovable character, but at the end I loved him! I recommend all the books in this series, even though I haven't yet completed the series. I know it will be fascinating.
