"Oh no! Our mother is dead, and the treasure is gone. But worst of all, none of us killed her- so who should be queen now?"
"Turtle and Kinkajou flying in the sky, getting all K-I-S-S-Y..."
Make it something really cool, like his insides exploding. Or his face falling of. I'm kidding! I'm a little bit kidding. I mean, insides exploding would be pretty cool right? Never mind.
-Peril (pg. 14)
"All right. You're not a dragon who likes compliments, I see. So I'll be blunt. I don't want to begin my reign as king of the NightWings by killing one of my subjects, especially one who could be such a valuable asset in rebuilding our tribe. Given the utter failure of all her schemes so far, and her relation to Starflight, my proposal is this: grant her your mercy and give her to me. Tomorrow I'll take her to the Night Kingdom with me, where she'll have no reason to bother you anymore. She can be my problem instead."
- Darkstalker to Queen Glory about Fierceteeth ( page 179 )
"He looks like he's posing for a portrait. Pompous Sneerdagard the Magnificent Awaits His Legions of Doomed Enemies."
- Kinajou about Darkstalker ( page 174 )
"Queen Glory doesn't usually allow that much fire in our forest. There are strict rules for the NightWings about how and when and how carefully to use it. She's definitely fallen for that baboon butt's act."
- Kinkajou to Turtle ( page 173 )
"OOOOOOOO, totally invisible to Darkstalker! That is an excellent spell. Another great idea, see? We'll be an awesome team. You can be the idea dragon and I can be the WHAM BAM SHOVE A PINEAPPLE UP HIS SNOUT dragon!"
- Kinajou to Turtle ( page 171-172 )
"There's no need to be brave. I'm no monster. The history you've been fed is a pack of lies. They told you I was evil, that I was about to do terrible things, and that I was locked away to protect you. None of that is true, my fellow NightWings. I had a majestic future planned for our tribe. Power and security and wealth and peace for every dragon. No running, no hiding, no lying or starving or living in fear. But there were dragons who didn't trust my vision for us. They feared what our tribe could become. I was betrayed on the brink of changing everything. Dragons I thought I could trust trapped me underground, where I've been asleep against my will for the last two thousand years. Meanwhile, our tribe fell apart - lost its power, its home, its position in Pyrrhia. And history scrolls were written about me by deceitful dragons who feared my power."
- Darkstalker to NightWings ( page 122-123 )
Violence: Some fighting but not much (although there are some scenes to consider).
SummaryAdd a Summary
Five random dragonets are chosen to save the world from a terrible war. Everyone is counting on them, but they have no idea what they are supposed to do. They live in an underground cave with three other dragons. But when their guardians threaten to kill one of them, they decide to escape. They become prisoners, and realize just how big the world is...
Do you like books with dragons, prophecies, and war? If you do this book is for you. I highly recommended it.
The seven dragon tribes have been in war for years. There is a prophecy that says five dragonets will come and chose a new SandWing queen (Blister, Blaze or Burn) since the death of the sisters’ mother, Queen Oasis. The dragonets have been hidden in a cave for their whole life’s’ and are supposed to come out and save the world at the 20th year of the war.
Tsunami (the SeaWing dragonet) thinks the dragonets should escape from there guardian and save the world sooner and find their family.
Clay (the MudWing dragonet) is not so sure about leaving the cave and guardian. Dragons in Pyrrhia would love to get their claws on the dragonets and kill them to ruin the prophecy.
Will Clay chose to follow the prophecy and wait two more long years or make this own destiny?
Join this claw fighting adventure with Clay and the rest of the dragonets! This series has five more books. Keep an eye out for “The lost Heir”
If you like this book you may also like “Warriors”. Tui T. Sutherland (the author of Wings of Fire) is one of the six authors of the “Warriors” series.
I hope you enjoy this book!
The dragonets are coming, they're coming to save the day. They're here to fight, they know what's right, the dragonets hooray!
the dragonets of the prophecy have lived in a cave their whole lives, never experiencing the outside world. Apart from a few objects their guardians bring back they don't even know what it looks like! One day Clay, Glory, Tsunami, Sunny and Starflight decide to escape. Little do they know that this one decision will change their lives forever.
Follow clay as he escapes from his cave, runs in to the queen of the sky wings and even meets a dragon with burning scales!
Gladiator fights were never so good!
