Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up–Wings of Fire is a successful book on many levels. It celebrates dragons in all their infinite variety with vigor and enthusiasm, tenderness, and sympathy. The stories range from classic fantasy to science fiction to steampunk, and the contributors represent a who's who of extraordinary talent: Peter S. Beagle, Charles De Lint, Roger Zelazny, Ursula K. Le Guin, Orson Scott Card, and on and on. Two original works by Holly Black and Margo Lanagan are included, along with stories tied to popular series like Anne McCaffrey's “Dragonriders of Pern” and Naomi Novik's “Temeraire.” Themes explored include sacrifice, honor, love, betrayal, family, etc. Many of the selections have adult language, violence, and sexual situations. The editors have pulled together an amazing work that does just what a great collection should do–it whets the appetite and makes readers ravenous for more.Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

From Booklist

The editors offer 26 dragon tales that are high in quality and diverse in writing style and characterization. With the exception of two written especially for this volume, the stories have been previously published but are more than worth reprising. The anthology leads off with Peter S. Beagle’s dark poem, “Stable of Dragons,” and includes a tale from McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series and a selection from Leguin’s Earthsea universe. In George R. R. Martin’s “The Ice Dragon,” does winter bring the dragon or vice versa? Michael Swanwick presents a mechanical warrior dragon that becomes king of a small village; Jane Yolen has an old dragon imparting wisdom to a boy; in Pat Murphy’s “Dragon’s Gate,” a 15-year-old girl must make the arduous trek to that gate in the hope of securing three drops of a dragon’s blood to save her mother’s life. Gordon R. Dickson’s well-loved “St. Dragon and the George” is among the offerings, and other writers include Orson Scott Card, Elizabeth Bear, Charles de Lint, and Tanith Lee, making this a treasure trove for dragon lovers. --Sally Estes
