Written by a ten year old boy
This book centers around Qibli; the dragon who had a rough childhood and desperately wants animus magic. With most of the dragons enchanted to follow Darkstalker, Qibli is one of the few who can stop Darkstalker. Qibli uses his wits and intelligence (along with some magic objects from Turtle) to break Darkstalker’s enchantment on the other dragons and stop Darkstalker from taking over the world.
We learn a lot about Qibli’s past and there is a lot about his birth family as well. As with previous books there is a lot in here about using power responsibly and about the importance of friendship. Additionally Qibli realizes that even though his birth family is pretty horrible, he can create himself a new family out of the friends and dragons who support and love him.
I always think the topics and events covered in this series are a bit advanced for middle grade readers. However my son (who is 10 now) has been reading these books since he was seven or so and really loves them. These books are fun, interesting, and engaging. They also provide some food for thought.
Overall this was a fantastic continuation of the Wings of Fire series. I really loved how the Darkstalker storyline was wrapped up. These books are always easy to read, engaging, and well written. I would definitely recommend to middle grade and older readers who love dragons, adventure, war, and magic.
A huge portion of the book was with the character Qibli, and his journey around the kingdom of sand. Not much of it was dealing with Darkstalker, the main villain in the book, and which we so felt hyped for. It seemed so effortless to break Turtle out of the prison and to, later on, stop the fighting between the Nightwings and the icewings. I felt like Qibli was very clever throughout the story, and the characters are really well developed. I still would recommend this book. Another gripe for me was speculation, throughout the series you'd speculate on what would happen next. You'd stay awake at night wondering what would happen next. However, this didn't quite show in the book. Still a solid book in the series.
If there happens to BE a next book, ( of which I am hearing soepeople say they loved the " series finale" and some writing they are eager for the next ( or five? ) books) I hope the narrater will be for Moon or Kinkajou. Honestly, this book was fanominally breathtaking, but Moon Rising was my second, due to character perspective and events. I love it when authors give you a hint or a detail beforehand in the book that presently seems dirley insignificant and turns out to carral all the story and make you bubble with anticipation and think WHY DIDN'T I NOTICE THAT.
Meanwhile, Kinkajou is a ferociously wonderful butterfly of loyalty, a well- formed character who can only be described as teeming with strong joy that is only given to her - nope. Her joy is given to her friends AND all those aroud her, whether they like it or not, no matter how adorably annoying she may be. She is above and beyond the dictionary description of lovable. It would be equally fascinating to see the Jade Winglet's next adventure through her eyes.
And then there is Clay. He started off this series, so why shouldn't he finnish it? ( Not that the next book should be the last one. It better not. )
Finally there is " The Legends " . I strongly believe and suggest that there be at the least one more Legend book, regardless of what dragonly tale and\ or secrets it behold.
One more thing: enemies. Exquisite. Darkstalker could be both loathed and empathised, and often an unstable combination of both. But by far my favorite villan was Queen Scarlet. A refreshingly evil female; powerful, clever, and you couln' t think she was good. Never. True, Darkstlker was a great nemesis, a simply ( almost ) indestructible challenge, but no one was as thirsty as Queen Scarlet. Revenge- wise, power- wise, and blood-wise. I know spreading out the evil amoung characters is good, but have a truly COMMON enemy.
P.S. : These books are plain amazing. Once diving in, there' s no diving out from Sutherland's WONDERFUL series brimmed with action, color, betrayal, love and

I expect to see more books in the future which follow on from the end here.
Also, I REALLY thought that the end with darkstalker was a total ripoff and hated it. Please!!!!!! At least STOP making mirrage endings like this one. It's EXACTLY like when quibli's father was being controlled by darkst…you get my point……
at the start it says how pam or something gets her sister in jailed.and how it shows some of qilbis childhood and what hppens to darkstalker this has to be a awesome book thanks for reading this review:3
ps. all my favourite books are in the wings of fire series
I loved the flashback of Qibli's childhood. This book is top-notch definetly a highly recommended book!
