Wings of Fire Book Two: The Lost Heir
By Tui T. Sutherland
Hi! I love books about dragons! Do you? Some of my favorites are The Harry Potter Series, Dragonbreath, and more. That’s one of the things that I love about this book - it’s all about dragons! And this book about dragons is a very mysterious tale.
It all started when a group of dragons were walking in the forest. Their names were Clay, Sunny, Tsunami, Starflight, and Glory. They were headed to the Seawing Territory, Tsunami’s home. Now, I want to stop you right here because, if you haven’t read my first review on The Dragonnet Prophecy, this will all be very confusing to you. So please, go and read the first review.
So where were we? Oh, right… Tsunami was about to jump into the giant lake of her home. When she jumped, she saw a Seawing (like herself) talking to another Seawing. He was talking using some sort of signs with his claws and he kept flashing his scales. (All Seawings had light-up scales.) He came over to Tsunami and started lighting them up. She pointed a claw toward the surface and hoped he knew that she meant, “Let’s go into the air to talk.” Then he flashed his lights at her, and she showed him that she could do that too.
After that, the dragon started attacking Tsunami! Tsunami accidentally hurt him and she flew up to the surface. He asked her why she had scratched him and she told him that he had started it. And he said, “You just told me that you liked me and I was being friendly.” She said, “When did I tell you that I like you? I just lit up my scales and you attacked me!” He said that Tsunami had used “Aquatic” and told him that she liked him. Tsunami was thinking, “Of course! Seawings have their own underwater language!” Then, Tsunami showed him to her friends.
After that, Tsunami told him everything about the prophecy and about how she was the queen’s daughter. And, sure enough, Tsunami had the royal markings on her scales. Riptide (the dragon that “attacked" Tsunami) and the royal troops escorted Tsunami to the palace. But her friends got locked up! There, in the palace, Tsunami met her little sister, Anemone, and her mother, Queen Coral. She passed the days with Webs and Riptide. Webs was her mentor, even though she wasn’t really fond of him.
Then, one day, one of the queen’s eggs got broken into, and the baby inside, killed! It was Tsunami’s job to protect the last egg. Then, Tsunami realized that the prison that her friends were in was flooding! When a wave knocked over the Seawing Kingdom, nobody seemed to mind, because Seawings could breathe underwater. But her friends couldn’t breathe underwater, so they would drown!! Tsunami rushed to the cell, and when she got up there, she turned the corner, and…
Will Tsunami’s friends escape the flooding? Is there a greater plot going on behind all of this? Who was killing the Dragonnet babies?? As I always say, read the book to find out!
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor – zero being not scary at all and five being majorly scary): 3
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor – zero having no yucky-lovey parts in it and five having major yucky-lovey parts): 2
I give this book 5 wands.
This book was awesome! It was a courageous story of how friends can be deceiving.
