Lists with This Book. Aug 03, Leif rated it it was amazing Shelves: The fact that this is not a more well-known novel continues to irk me. I can only assume that the cover art killed the sales of this series. In fact, Brokteail often use these books as an example of the worst cover art that I have ever seen. Bazip Broketail is a fantasy novel written in a style that reminds me of military science fiction.
Rowley has the ability to give just the right amount of detail so that the reader can understand exactly what is happening at any moment, brokwtail in a chaotic battle. The two main characters play off of each other very well and the dragons who, at first, seem stupider than the humans, end up being much more sensible, and bringing much broketali the table besides fighting strength. The magic system laid out here is wonderful and unique, focusing on sacrifices and movement between the planes of existence.
The evil powers are mostly raiding The Argonath for women to breed imps and cows to breed trolls, and there is a certain creepy logic to their motivations. The witches who support our main characters are not hurling fireballs around, their magics are more subtle and most of them seem rather detached from the events of the world.
I even love the fact that the princess that they try to save seems like such a twit that you wonder if they will be doing their people any favors by saving her. Anyway, read this series.
It has not been in print for some time, and there is no audiobook version, but find a copy and read it, it is well worth it. Jun 02, Michael Hall rated it it was amazing. Unquestionably one of my favorite fantasy series that deals with dragons.
These dragons are not mythical creatures, nor are they simply pets or mounts. These dragons are unique individuals with quirks and personality. Striding around on their hind-legs wearing leather armor and swinging 10 foot dragonswords they are a vision of incarnate carnage on the battle field.
Light and easy to read this book contains more than just an excellent adventure, it explores the depths of the human soul and it’s Unquestionably one of my favorite fantasy series that deals with dragons.
Bazil Broketail (Bazil Broketail, #1) by Christopher Rowley
Light and easy to read this book contains more than just an excellent adventure, it explores the depths of the human soul and it’s capacity to find hope, no matter how overwhelming the odds or dire the circumstances. Dec 01, Nicole rated it it was amazing. I loved this series. Rowley has such talent at world building. Kills me that the books are so hard broketai, find now. This was possibly one of the best fantasy series I’ve ever read Dec 24, Thomas Mcnulty rated it it was amazing Shelves: Still one of my all time favorite books and series that I’ve read.
As bazul have said, really surprised that this isn’t more well known. Or the fact that it is so hard to find the books now. If you get a copy, enjoy! Apr 27, Lauma Lapa rated it it was amazing. I’d dearly like to shake the hand of the translator in whatever other language of this one. This is a book about war and how ugly it gets, and a book of nuances broketsil taste, colour and sound. Highly enjoyable, especially when one is encumbered by less creative writing, such as I’d dearly like to shake the hand of the translator in whatever other language of this one.
Highly enjoyable, especially when one is encumbered by less creative writing, such as student essays. Jun 06, Meryl added it. Bazil Broketail is unquestionably the best book I have ever read.
Relkin of Quosh and his dragon Bazil are a hardworking, kind, and whiney duo. Relkin has been trying to get his hands on a dragon stamp so Bazil broketaill join groketail army. Relkin had recently gotten one from his friend and tried joined the army. Bro,etail Relkin was informed that the stamp was actually a fake. Will Relkin give the authorities the slip and join the army and go on the wildest quest ever?
Or will Relkin be caught and executed. I enjoyed this book because of all the imagery and detail. I baxil the author was good at using the right words at the right time to make a good reading pace. Oct 10, Raptorix rated it liked it Shelves: I only ever really enjoyed this book for its portions about Bazil and his dragonboy, and his fellow Dragons in his squadron.
I became very bored whenever the narrative went over the parts about the different warring factions plotting against each other. Bazil was brkketail facinating briketail read about, obviously! I sadly only could manage to read 2 of the many books in this series, and I hoped that basil another held more Bazil scenes than this one.
Nov 30, Eh? Mar 14, Amber rated it really liked it Recommended to Amber by: A good begining to a series of seven books. Subsequent books might not have been as good, but were still enjoyable. If you stick with this, and give it a chance, it doesn’t disappoint.
Jul 18, Kat rated it liked it Baizl Interesting viewpoint on dragons. Too many place names and military buzzwords- can get confusing. Jun 30, Kristen rated it it was ok. I really wanted to love this book given who recommended it to me and the reviews I read but while it had some good bits here and brketail it was overall too messy to keep me interested. I don’t feel that the broktail pov were executed well.
Also there were way too many plot necessary events going on off stage. That left me thinking more yhan once: That sounds way cooler t I really wanted to love this book given who recommended it to broketali and the reviews I read but while it had some good bits here and there it was overall too messy to keep me interested.
That sounds way cooler than this thing. Sorry, but I’m going with ‘meh’. Mar 15, Bakertyl rated it really liked it Shelves: Most older fantasy novels, in my experience, have the same fatal flaw I forget the name, but one novel I read years ago had this flaw. The main character was a teenage boy who never made a mistake and always managed to find the right course of action regardless of his life inexperience. This makes broketaip books unbelievable and unrelatable. One reason I like this novel and the Brisingr series was the characters were allowed to be human and make mistakes, Most older fantasy novels, in my experience, have the same fatal flaw One reason I like brokerail novel and the Brisingr series was the characters were allowed to be human and make mistakes, just like real people.
A good read, and something I can see myself rereading in a few years. I found it at a used bookstore after looking for it after reading about it in Neil Gaiman’s “View from the Cheap Seats”. Sep 06, Jason Glasser rated it it was amazing.
Just reread this oldie but goodie. High fantasy and adventure at it’s best.
Nostalgia may play heavily into that opinion. Aug 08, Pennyjen rated it it was amazing. Jun 07, R rated it it was amazing.
Bazil Broketail did not live up to my expectations. It exceeded them, over bgoketail over. I picked up this series expecting based on the woefully inaccurate cover art a fantastic farce:
