After being kidnapped from the rainforest, Sunny hears the NightWings’ secret plan to sell her and her friends, who are dragonets of destiny. She escapes and follows them to make sure their plan fails. The NightWings go into the Scorpion Den, in the Sand Kingdom. They want to meet with Thorn, the leader of the city, to contact a buyer for Sunny and her friends. Sunny follows them into the city. Thorn doesn’t like their plan and throws the NightWings in prison. Sunny finds out that Thorn is her mother, but is soon captured by Adix, who is a traitor of Thorn. He takes her to the evil queen, Burn. Thorn attacks Burn’s stronghold with a small army, letting Sunny escape.
Sunny meets up with her friends in the rainforest. They devise a plan to stop the war raging between the dragon tribes and choose the new queen, as the prophecy says, and try to figure out the mystery of the murdered Queen Oasis.
This book has a good message about not letting someone lay out your life for you, that you can choose your own path. Sunny and her friends are believed to be the chosen dragons of a prophecy and at first feel like they have to fulfill the prophecy. But, they find out the prophecy isn’t real and that they don’t have to follow the prophecy. Many of the dragons in the different tribes are looking forward to the prophecy being fulfilled. So, Sunny convinces her friends to follow the path of the prophecy for those dragons who believe. The dragon tribes want the war to end and Sunny and her friends can make that happen. I think it is important to do what you think is right instead of just letting someone else choosing your path for you. Sunny and her friends make their own destiny while choosing to help the dragon tribes and those who believe in the prophecy.
I strongly recommend this book, for ages 8 year and older, if you like fantasy and dragons. You will never want to put the book down. All the books in the series are about 300 pages long. It is a good action fantasy with a constant fun story. I would give this book 5 stars.
That said, even though during my read through I ranted about Sunny's gag-worthy responses to events and the nothing-bad-will-really-happen atmosphere, the book was still well written from a language perspective. It's still a well developed world for these dragons to engage in. It was that, and the need to see the other dragonets again, that kept me reading. I was glad to see the other four again before getting to close the book on Sunny. I can't say the finale was completely satisfying, but it did the job.
