From School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-The dragonets set out to find the hidden underwater SeaWing kingdom and Queen Coral, Tsunami's mother, in this exciting sequel to The Dragonet Prophecy (Scholastic, 2012). When they arrive, Coral is thrilled to see the daughter who was stolen from her as an egg, but things don't go exactly as planned. Tsunami had always assumed she was the sole heir to the SeaWing throne, but a surprise younger sister leaves her confused about her future role, and Queen Coral's distrust of the other dragonets causes them to be imprisoned yet again. Having read the first book in the series will help youngsters understand the motivations behind the characters' choices, but isn't strictly necessary to enjoy the nonstop action. Tensions mount as someone continues to kill Coral's unhatched female dragonets, and Tsunami herself is attacked. The dragonets become more and more endearing as the series progresses, and the adults more sinister. Moments of danger and brutality are tempered with comic relief, making this a perfect adventure for young fantasy fans to sink their teeth into.-Mandy Laferriere, Fowler Middle School, Frisco, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

The Dragonets of Destiny, having escaped their prison in the kingdom of the Skywings, seek out the ocean kingdom of the Seawings. Tsunami, the Seawing princess stolen as an unhatched egg by the Talons of Peace, is expecting a rapturous reunion with her mother, Queen Coral. Though Tsunami is welcomed by the queen, she realizes that finding the kingdom and returning home are two different things. Having set the scene in The Dragonet Prophecy (2012), Sutherland spends more time on character development here, with the bulk of the book focusing on Tsunami’s story. With only a few pieces falling into place, there are still intrigues to uncover and kingdoms to visit in upcoming volumes. Grades 4-7, --Kara Dean

Tsunami is finally going home to the kingdom of the sea. But she doesn't know what mysterious things have been happening, and Queen Coral, Tsunami's mother has had her daughters mysteriously destroyed in their eggs. Tsunami is determined to save the last surviving egg and discovers secrets even her mother didn't know of.
I like the mysteries, they are very strange and can be a bit spooky at times, but also a story filled with magic and fun. I can't wait for the next book, I just finished Escaping Peril. I really want a book about Kinkajou.
I think that this book is a bit scary and readers should be prepared. Also, beware of enchanted statues.
Bah Bah Buuuuumm!
Really after she leaves you with a Bah Bah Buuuuumm I am not sure what else I can say, haha.
A few things...the world building for The Kingdom of The Sea is fantastic. Anytime a young reader can fully visualize the world they are reading about and get excited about it you know you have a winner. One of my favorite things about this series in fact is it's ease at pulling in reluctant readers and turning them into book-a-holics.
I like that in this series each book gives us the point of view of a different Dragonet, but continues with the main original characters each fighting their own battles and working together to discover their world and find their way.
As with the first book there are some moments that may be more difficult for sensitive readers, particularly one moment that involves Tsunami's father. There are not too many scary moments so don't let that keep you from getting this book, but you might have a moment where your reader needs to talk to you about what is happening. Of course if they are anything like my MG reader, they will want to talk your ear off about all these books regardless of any scary moments, these are books I find that readers just HAVE to share!
This is a great book for Middle Grade readers, particularly reluctant readers. The books are both fun, with sarcastic and witty characters, they are balanced with poignant moments and battles. I do recommend that they be read in order, you will be missing out on important facts by reading them out of order. A great addition to any teachers classroom library!
Ordered this and received it the next day, fast delivery!!
The book was great otherwise, though for some reason I felt like Riptide was slightly annoying; I kind of think he was just added in to add a romance for Tsunami. I found the plot twist at the end unexpected and interesting, however, and throughout the book I found myself wondering what was going to happen next.
All in all, a thrilling book that keeps you reading.
