"I'm sorry, hatchling. You are an outcast. You must learn to overcome on your own..." Such was the welcome the young, nameless Copper dragon received upon breaking free of his shell. Crippled while battling his brother for dominance in the nest, he is all but ignored and discarded by his mother and father-the last of a dying breed. Forced to fend for himself, he learns the hard lessons of survival. When he's captured by vengeful dwarves, he buys his own life with the lives of those who rejected him-and pays a price he never imagined. Fleeing his guilt, the Copper finds himself far from all he knows. Rescued by unlikely, bloodthirsty saviors, he makes an extraordinary trek to the last bastion of free dragonkind. In this secret civilization, he finds a new family. They too are wary of the crippled, wild-bred dragon, but this time he's determined to prove himself equal to any enemy, on four legs or two, from the highest mountaintop to the deepest cave, as he pits his strength, wit, and courage in a contest for the survival-and domination-of dragonkind itself.

    " E.E. Knight writes another captivating dragon story. I expected the Copper to be a more cunning, sinister character and therefore not to like him much; fortunately, that wasn't the case. I did, however, enjoy Dragon Champion and Dragon Avenger a bit more though.. still excited for the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginn | 12/31/2013

    " I think of all the hatchlings' stories I like the one of the Copper the best, despite what he did to his family. He's the underdog, having to struggle to live despite being somewhat deformed, has a lot of bad things happen to him, yet in the end comes out on top. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celia Jarest | 12/20/2013

    " I think this one was so well written and do in depth. The details from the first two were poored in here on top of the author telling a brand new story on old details. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane | 12/18/2013

    " Possibly as good as the first. With 3 more books in the series I was skeptical after reading book 2, but now I'm very excited. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 12/15/2013

    " this series is told through the perspectives of several siblings. of those siblings the outcast is my personal favorite. if the first few actions of this book don't tug at your heartstrings, you're one cold dwarf. the entire series is amazing. read it now! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Jacoby | 10/4/2013

    " This series is beginning to out pace the Vampire Earth series. Very enjoyable. He is keeping this fresh with new characters. Knight could use his own advice back on the Vampire Earth series and give someone besides David Valentine a story. "

    " I wasn't sure how I would feel about his little dragon after reading the first two books and seeing their side. However, I ended up falling in love with this little copper dragon and all that he has to go through to become accepted among the other dragons. "

    " loved it! i wondered what happened to the Copper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 7/23/2011

    " The Copper's tale is a great addition to the stories of his brother and sister. It is interesting to see his perspective and the reasons behind what happened to set all three stories in motion. It will be interesting to see how the three come together in the next part of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brittany | 7/6/2011

    " I didn't think I'd enjoy this dragon's perspective, but I was pleasantly surprised...still, not gripping me. "
