Septimus is a young black dragon in need of a magical item for his hoard. Getting such an item is a rites of passage thing for black dragons. He goes to an auction to buy a chalice but is out bid. Septimus tries to snatch the chalice anyway, but is chased away.

Satia is a thief and a liar living on the street in Gwynned. She is watching the auction from a roof top when Septimus escapes.

On his way Septimus picks up Satia, meaning to make a meal of her, but as he returns to his cave, he is attacked by red dragons and a wizard. The wizard catches Septimus' mother. To save her son she turns him into a human boy. Since it's not his magic, he lost all his dragon magic and power in the process, and his helpless when the wizard takes off with his mother.
Satia and Septimus make a deal: She will help him free his mother and afterwards he will return her safely to Gwynned. On their quest they come across goblins, hobgoblins, ogres, draconians, red dragons, and a confused old knight.

Will they be able to free the dragon? Is any of these shady characters reliable?

An evil dragon and a liar and thief may not be the most sympathetic characters, but both Septimus and Satia are courageous. The story is good and I really liked the ogre solution, which wasn't expected at all.
Another great Dragon Codex book. Any dragon lover would like this one. Books like these aren't just for YA. I sure enjoy them and i'm twice that age.

Good fantasy 11 Aug. 2012
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An exciting adventure that will appeal to young fantasy readers (grades 3-6 is my guess). Well developed characters, plenty of action, and a good dose of humor.
