Introduction

After escaping those who killed his siblings, Young Auron, a rare, defenseless gray dragon, fears he might be the last of his breed. Armed with nothing but his claws and a boundless determination to survive, he sets off in search of his kind. But to find other dragons-or, at least, find out who's killing them off-Auron will have to search a world of mercenary elves, vicious humans, and dangers of all kinds. Finding allies in the strangest places-and himself along the way-Auron is on the trek of a lifetime.

Dragon Champion Discussion questions
by Rainyh (see profile) 04/30/10
This is the list of questions we used to discuss Dragon Champion written by Brian H. 1. Why do you suppose the dragons traditions insist that only one male dragon survives from each hatch? Why would this not be the case for female dragons? 2. What do you think about the dragon origin myth that the father tells Auron? Do you feel that it is similar to some human origin myths as far as acceptability? 3. Who’s your favorite character and why? What characteristics do you like the most about them? Which character do you like the least? 4. Do you feel that E.E. Knights idea about the way dragons should be is reasonable? What other dragons in literature or movies have you liked? 5. Who is the main antagonist throughout this book? 6. As a grey dragon Auron has characteristics different from the rest of his brethren, how can these differences help or hinder him? 7. With the apparent rarity of dragons in the world, do you think that Auron and possibly other dragons consider the survival of their species while making decisions instead of just self preservation?
