Good quick read. Fun story. I always enjoy thinking what dragons would be like if they really exist.

Bronze Dragon Codex is not the type of story I expected. That is not a bad thing, as it turns out, because I was extremely happy with the story. What I didn't expect was a story about a young bronze dragon with her hated of humans. I also didn't expect a story about a young human cleric out to rid the land of all dragons because of her hated for them. This was all unexpected . . . and turned out to be a very exciting fantasy romp.

I loved that the two main characters, a female cleric, Tatelyn, an

A human hating dragon with a dragon hating human surprisingly work well with each other. Simle and Tatelyn both hate each other and (of course) end up on an adventure with each other.This book goes through many unsuspected turns and sequences even though you might have thought they would go one way, they go the other.All of the turns bring in several strong ideas in the story.How would you feel if you lost you're sibling to what was thought to be a good protector? How about losing all of you're ...more

Recommends it for: Old and young dragon lovers!
Sometimes even good dragons struggle with a dark side. This young bronze dragon has good reason to think all humans are evil. At the same time, a human girl also has good reason to distrust every matallic dragon.
As the dragon and human girl are thrown togethetr on a quest to recover their lost magical powers, danger and adventure awaite. Can they figure out how to work together? Raad to find out.
I would have had this reviewed long ago but since I bought it several students have read it and One

I found this book way better than the first one, because first, it has the dragon as the main character, not the villain as in the Red Dragon Codex. I also liked the plot twist at the end(view spoiler). Overall, this book manages to be a standard adventure, while not being too standard.

I read this book because I have a fascination with dragons, and Bronze Dragon Codex increased this fascination. This book not only tells the story of a young dragon and a girl, but how to forgive and forget the past. I would highly recommend this book and the other books in this series to fantasy fans like myself.

My first dragon codex as a kid. Has a lot to do with my obsession with dragons. I love how much the characters change. I love Tatelyn (and her name!) and I love Simle and I love their interactions. Out of all the Dragon Codex's, this one had my favorite storyline and writing style. Absolutely beautiful.

An interesting story about a Dragon who hates humans and a human who hates dragons and how their lives intertwine changing them for the better. This is a good book that teaches tolerance and acceptance of differences. My son gave this book a rating of three stars because he didn't think the story was a interesting or adventurous as the first book, Red Dragon Codex.

I loved this book. I thought the moral of the story was unique and refreshing, and the writing quality was excellent. I'll confess I originally bought the book because my friend from Hollins wrote it (Amie Rotruck), so partly for curiosity and partly desire to support her. I don't usually read a lot of dragon books. But I'm glad I did because I was thoroughly impressed. Way to go Amie!

This book was really an excellent book!
Tatelyn hating dragons ever since that In counter with the copper and Simle hating humans because they stole her siblings.
The Bronze Dragon Codex simply put a wonderful twist to this!
Dec 16, 2008 Marie rated it it was ok
Same thing with the Red Dragon Codex. But this time it was a girl that was the center stage. I need to find more books as boys as the hero. I think that is what every ten year old wants to read about. How the boy is the best.

This book is about a young bronze dragon (NOT COPPER) who embarks on a journey with a human Tatelyn to release their curse. This book is just like the first one.
