Overview


Peril has been loyal to Queen Scarlet, who used her fatal firescales to kill countless dragons in the SkyWing arena. Now, Peril is loyal to Clay, the only dragonet who has ever been her friend. So when Scarlet threatens Jade Mountain Academy, Peril sets off to find her former queen, stop her, and save the day, no matter what it takes.

There's just one problem: a strangely persistent SeaWing, Turtle, insists on coming along, too. Turtle is worried about his friends, who left to search for Scarlet and haven't returned. Peril is worried that she might accidentally burn Turtle -- or burn him on purpose, for being so annoying -- and frustrated that she keeps saying and doing the wrong things. She can't escape her firescales, and she can't escape her reputation as the deadliest dragon in Pyrrhia.

So when she's offered a chance to trade everything for a second chance, Peril has to decide who she's really loyal to . . . and whether her own scales might actually be worth saving.

I really can't wait for this book to come out so far every book I read was super good. I got really disapointed when I thought that the 5th book was the last one. I was so happy when I found out that there was a second part of this amazing series. I really can't wait for this book to come out.

I have read the book a million times already, and it is still managing to amaze me. It is a very well-written book with lots of surprises and twists.

Omg. So good. You can see how Peril gets her funny, curious, brave personality back! Best book in the series!Talons of Power come out! The ending was weird but awesome. I was thinking, "Anemone, what do you know....."

The prologue was great; I didn't realize Tui was taking that turn in the story, despite the prologue being longer than the actual first chapter. Then one of the first few chapters ends with a bang. And then the story just gets better and better.

Peril and Winter are my favorites. This was really an eye opener on Peril. Her thoughts and quotes are super funny! And Cliff is sooo cute! Clay is only in very begining and end, but he was mentioned thoughout the whole thing! I loved the plot twists and mystories hiding in every word! But the cliffhanger at the end... it's amazing. Even though it was still a cliffhanger. Peril's father... my gosh. And the secrets. Everyone has one. Everyone. In all, it was PURE AWESOMENESS!!!!! You'll love it! <3 Jenna Favorite quotes: "That's right. DIE, little monster plants." "EVERYTHING HURTS! I HATE THIS WORLD!" "WHO COULD SHE KILL TO MAKE IT STOP?" "I think she need hug."
