Winter leaves the school at Jade Mountain to find his sister Icicle and save his brother Hailstorm. His fellow dragonettes decide to accompany him. Their journey takes them to the RainWing Kingdom and beyond; eventually they end up confronting Queen Scarlet yet again.
I really enjoy this middle grade adventure fantasy series about dragons and friendship. My son got me reading this series and it took me a while to warm up to it, but now I am hooked.
In this book we really get to know the next generation of dragons a lot better. Of course Winter is the focus of the story and it was nice to get insight into this moody and short-tempered dragon. We learn a lot about Winter’s background and he definitely has some trust issues to work through. Moon is in the story a lot as well, as are Qibli, and Kinkajou. All of the dragons have distinct and amusing personalities.
We do still get to see what the original five dragonettes are up to. It was a lot of fun to see the progress those original five are making in bringing the dragon clans together and trying to recover from the decades long war. It’s definitely a challenge but they seem to be up to it. I also loved the little cameo by Squid, he is hilarious; I hope he features in a future book.
The main story here is definitely Winter retrieving Hailstorm and facing his family’s continued disappointment in him. However, there is still a looming side story about a great danger coming from the skies. Additionally we are seeing more and more of the Scavengers (humans) as the story progresses.
Overall I really enjoyed this book in the Wings of Fire series; I think it was my favorite one so far. This series has been full of wonderful middle grade fantasy adventures. I love that the characters are building such solid friendships and that in the more recent books the adult dragons are working with the dragonettes to forge a peaceful dragon nation. I will definitely continue reading this series and highly recommend this to fantasy fans; especially the middle grade age set.
Please click "HELPFUL" if you appreciated this honest review.
1)The release of Foeslayer and the thoughts about how Onyx wants to be queen of the world in book 7.
2)Dragons with gold BIRD medallions buying dragonflame cacti in book 8.
3)Darkstalker mistakening Turtle as Fathom,dragons with gold BIRD medallions(possibly the same ones who had
been buying dragonflame cacti in book 8),SeaWing students on an overnight trip being haunted by the ghost of ALBATROSS,and the death of Queen Glacier in book 9.
4)Darkstalker and ALBATROSS both being stopped by Fathom in Legends:Darkstalker
Alright,now time to get to the predictions:
First,there will be civil war in the Ice Kingdom,as Queen Glacier is dead,but not killed by any of the heirs.Second,Albatross will appear in some way,as the dragons that set off dragonflame cacti in the Kingdom of Sand has gold BIRD medallions that resemble Albatross,since an albatross is a type of a large bird,and the SeaWing students are haunted by Albatross' ghost.Also,the part where Darkstalker mistakes Turtle for Fathom means Albatross will seek revenge on Turtle too,since Turtle looks like Fathom,and is also an animus.Third,Qibli will use the dragon finding coral that be burrowed from Turtle(The descirption of book 10 says that Qibli used the animus objects that he burrowed from Turtle to give his talons the power to make a difference)to find Foeslayer,which disappeared in book 8,and then reunite her with Darkstalker,and then he gets like less evil,and releases Turtle from the dungeons,then Anemone enchants Turtle to be an animus again,and he stops Darkstalker with animus powers.
Well...this is the longest review that I've ever wrote,soooo I guess thats it...Bye.
p.s.Qibli's my fav character,so thx for making him the protangonist and PoV of the last book in the series!
