Dragon Champion: Age of Fire, Book 1

High in the mountains, deep in the safety of a cave, a brood of dragons is born. The four young ones are among the last of a dying breed---the final hope for dragons' survival.

Publisher's Summary

"Gray dragons are different, my son. It means you must be careful; your skin will be pierced more easily. But on the other hand, having no hunger for gems and gold will allow you to live in the Upper World and far from men."

High in the mountains, deep in the safety of a cave, a brood of dragons is born. The four young ones are among the last of a dying breed - the final hope for dragons' survival. But hope shatters when a murderous group of slave-trading dwarves breaks into the cave, leaving death and destruction in its wake.

Only young Auron, a rare scaleless gray dragon, manages to escape. Armed with nothing save wit, claws, and a boundless determination to survive, he seeks his kind. But to find other dragons - or at least discover who's killing them off - Auron will have to search a world of mercenary elves, vicious humans, and dangers of all kinds. Winning allies in the strangest places - and finding himself along the way - Auron embarks on the journey of a thousand-year lifetime.

    "Dragon lover of old. . . .reborn"

    I have always loved books about dragons. I've read the Pern series, the DragonKnight books, The Dragon Prince series, etc., so I am no stranger to these types of books. Lately however, I had wandered away from these books to explore other nooks and crags of the literary world. Nothing has drawn me in like the books I read in my youth. So, in a desperate night of searching audible for an enjoyable, enthralling listen I stumbled upon Dragon Champion.

    First off, let me be clear here in that I have yet to finish the listen (I'm about 3/4 of the way through) but have already downloaded the second book in the series!

    It has rekindled my love for these books. I listen to this book in the morning as soon as I awake and get ready for my day and at night as I am winding down. The story is gripping and the narration superb.

    If your a dragon lover like I am (as I write this I have 5 dragon figurines on my desk watching over me) go ahead and spring for the download, your inner dragon will break free and soar!

    "A Surprising but Satisfying Change"

    This book was great and as I write this review I'm downloading the second book. I've loved dragons since I was a young child my aunt used to bring all these different dragon figurines for my room and a kite that even now hangs above my bed. I've read the Dragon Riders of Pern, the Dragon Keeper series ,the Inheritance Cycle and more but this is one of the few times I've listened or read a book that is focused mainly on a dragons perspective of the world its a change for me but I love it and can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series (not literally of course).

    Story
    "Intriguing, but the writing was not for me"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, especially of the Young Adult section. The way this book was written and the stories and characters left as loose ends were frustrating to me. I prefer deeper writing, but the overall story is interesting. Anyone not looking for that deep connection to the characters but wants an interesting dragon story that's not the usual, you'll have a fun journey.

    "Good book"

    The story is engaging. The characters are interesting. The reader is excellent, with great voice characterizations.

    I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    Story
    "Only the fittest are worthy"
    Would you try another book from E. E. Knight and/or David Drummond?

    Yes, I have plans to continue with EE Knights sequels in the future. The story was good and who doesn't love dragons and other mythical creatures.


    Would you recommend Dragon Champion to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Sci-fi Fantasy Epic Novels. Especially ones who have the potential to grow into a great series.


    What three words best describe David Drummond’s performance?

    Brilliant, Dramatic, and Clear-Worded.


    Could you see Dragon Champion being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I feel this could be turned into a great Disney or Pixar animated movie easily.
    Any person involved in Hobbit or Lord of the Rings could voice over the characters easily.

    "Highly Recommend"

    Written in the tradition of Watership Downs and the Big Red series of animal adventures. This series is written from the Dragon's perspective. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the other books in this series.

    What is there to say, I am a 40-something professional man with kids who like to listen to light books while on the bus to work.

    "To unoriginal & drawn out, but interesting :/"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Interest, but frustration & bordom too.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a coming of age story about Dragons, from the Dragons perspective, in a fantacy world.

    Cut the book in half & it would be great :}

    BAD PARTS: #1 The races are nothing new & add nothing new or interesting about them [human, dwarf, elf, ect].
    #2 The story in over described & has tomuch nothing filler, that only draws the story out.

    GOOD PARTS: #1 Interesting take on Dragons.
    #2 When the story isn't drawn out it's good & interesting :}
    #3 Good character interplay.
