Overview

Dragon Rule (Age of Fire Series #5) by E. E. Knight

Scattered across a continent and scarred by their harsh experiences on the path to adulthood, the three dragon siblings are among the last of a dying breed—the final hope for their species’ survival.

Wistala, sister to the Copper who is now Emperor of the Upper World, has long thought humans the equal of dragons. She leads the Firemaids, fierce female fighting dragons who support the Hominids of Hypatia.

Which puts her at odds with both her brothers, for the Copper has no use for the humans he now dominates and AuRon, the rare scaleless grey, would isolate himself and his family from both the world of men and the world of dragons.

But as the Copper’s empire roils with war, greed and treachery, the time is fast approaching when Wistala will have to choose who to stand with—and fight for...

They may be siblings, but the dragons are as different from one another as night is from day. AuRon the scale-less grey wants nothing to do with humans as he prefers isolation with his mate. Wistala the female believes dragons and humans cal live in harmony together. Copper lives in the Lavadome at the bottom of a dormant volcano; as the Tyr emperor of the Upper World and Protector of the Grand Alliance. He believes dragons are superior to humans. He forms an alliance with the crumbling Hypatian Empire, providing a dragon protector to each province. The Hypatian increasingly become dependent on the dragons to maintain and even expand their power. AuRon and his mate Natasatch are appointed Protectors of Darius, the only dragons King Nef will accept. Darius was part of the old Ghioz Empire and the Hypatians fear he will withdraw from the Grand Alliance; an act they oppose. AuRon's mate convinces him to take the position while the Tyr's crippled qeen asks Wistala to be the Queen-Consort as she fears there is a plot a foot to dispose Copper. After being on the job awhile Wistala agrees with the assessment of her brother's mate, but no one has made a hint of a move so far. The fifth and final Age of Fire fantasy has the three dragon siblings going their separate ways but the threat to one is perceived as a menace to all so they reunite as part of the Grand Alliance. AuRon has still not forgiven his brother for what he did when they were hatchlings, but finds to his surprise that blood is thicker than resentment most of the time. This is an exciting finish filled with many escapades, but it will be much more fulfilling by reading the previous entries to better understand how the dragon threesome got to this point where they must rely on one another or their species becomes extinct.

A great, entertaining read, complete with Knight's unique style of writing, as we yet again follow the dragon siblings, Wistala, AuRon, and the Copper in their continued struggles in a hostile world. As humans become increasingly resentful of the growing dragon population, the three main charcters are faced with opposing views of their current predicament. The Copper, leader of the Lavadome, a large collective government of elete dragons, purposes to create a rough alliance, creating "Protectors" from a selected few dragons, to which, obviously, dragons reap most of the benefit through demanding pay for their services. Wistala, a newcomer to the Lavadome, contains strong veiws that dragons and humans should be equal allies, where one does not withhold power over the other. AuRon, meanwhile, wishes to have nothing to do with humans along with the ever-corrupted Lavadome, in full belief that interfering in such violence will surely spell out the end of dragonkind. Very eventful throughout the novel, although the sumarization in the back is rather off, and does not at all portray the key factors in the novel. A good read, though, nevertheless; dragon lovers definately ought to give these novels a try.
