Overview


This first audiobook in a thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation!

FORMAT: Unabridged Audio on 8 CDs

The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy -- a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice.

Five dragonets are collected to fulfill the prophecy, raised in a hidden cave and enlisted, against their will, to end the terrible war.

But not every dragonet wants a destiny. And when the select five escape their underground captors to look for their original homes, what has been unleashed on the dragon world may be far more than the revolutionary planners intended . . .

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Wings of Fire Book One

“Dramatic battle scenes, double-crosses, and one seriously deranged queen makes WINGS OF FIRE a series that should have broad appeal for middle-grade fantasy fans.” --BOOKLIST

“Fast-paced and detailed, this first installment in a new adventure series is entertaining.” --KIRKUS

“Readers of all ages will be enchanted by the humanistic storyline and the page-turning excitement.” LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Five dragonets are hatched under a mountain, in the care of a group of rebel dragons, the Talons of Peace. They are key to a prophecy that will end the war raging among the dragon tribes. They clearly have a destiny, but no one is sure about the role of Glory, a beautiful Rainwing. She was not one of the original five, but a replacement for an egg that was cruelly smashed in an attempt by power-hungry dragons to thwart the fulfillment of the prophecy. When her life is threatened, the dragonets stage a daring escape from the mountain but are captured by the Skywing queen, Scarlet. She forces them to participate in gladiatorlike competitions for her amusement. Each one is eventually forced to fight Peril, her champion, whose very touch is made of fire. A fight with Peril is certain death, and she instills fear in all who meet her—all but the Mudwing dragonet Clay. The two develop a cautious and unlikely friendship. As the dragonets fight to survive, and Clay's relationship with Peril deepens, thrilling secrets of their pasts are revealed. Fully fleshed-out characters have unique personalities influenced by the distinct traits of their tribes. Plot twists and turns abound, and will keep readers cheering for the dragonets to the end.—Mandy Laferriere, Staley Middle School, Frisco, TX

    Exciting new fantasy series with creative characters

    Sutherland creates a new and exciting world for readers in her newest series. Seven dragon tribes are currently at war, fighting for power to determine who among the three sisters will be the Queen. During the war a prophecy was foretold, that five dragonets will rise to decide the new ruler. The Talons of Peace an underground group hoping for an end to the war, collected the five dragonets foretold of in the prophecy, and have raised them underground, in a hidden cave.
    But not all of this mismatched group of dragonets, who have been secluded since birth, want to or believe in their predetermined destiny. And when the five escape their underground cave and begin the quest to seek their homelands, both the dragonets and the dragon world are in for some surprises.
    Enhanced by the pictures and brief summaries of the different dragons, a map, and the prophecy included in the book, the magnificent dragons and their variety of homes come to life. But more than just the adventure of the dragonets, it is their morals and personality that really connect with the readers and make Wings of Fire a great read. Readers seeking a new adventure and a cast of characters to love and support will enjoy Wings of Fire.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK

    Clay, Tsunami, Sunny, Glory, and Starflightare the dragonets of a Prophecy told by Morrowseer. There are seven different dragon kingdoms. They are all at war. There are the; Mudwings, Sandwings, Skywings, Seawings, Rainwings, Icewings, and Nightwings. Each dragon kingdom has or had a Queen. The Sandwings are split into three different groups since the death of Queen Oasis. The leaders of the three are Burn, Blister, and Blaze. Burn is alied with the Skywings and Mudwings. Blister is alied with the Seawings. Blaze us alied with most of the Sandwings and Icewings. The Rainwings and Nightwings are not alied with anyone and are not involved in the great war. Clay is a Mudwing. Tsunami is a Seawing. Sunny is a Sandwing. Glory is a Rainwing. Starflight is a Nightwing. All of these dragonets are safly hiden under a mountain. Some of the dragonets are not all the way formed. For example Sunny does not have a stinger at the end of her tail and Starfiight can not read minds. Clay on the other hand can walk through flames and touch the hotest dragon in the Skywing kingdom.

    Good book

    Clay has lived his whole life under the mountian. The Mudwing dragonet knows that war is raging between the dragon tribes in the world outside- a war that he and four dragonets are destined to end, according to the mysterious Prophacy they've been taught. The five "chosen" dragonets were stolen from their homes while they were still in their eggs- hidden away for years- all to fulfill the Prophacy.

    But not every dragonet wants that destiny. And when danger threatens one of there own, Clay and his friends may choose freedom over fate... leave the mountian... and set the dragon world on a course that no one could have predicted.

    Join Clay the Mudwing,Tsunami the Seawing,Sunny the Sandwing,Starflight the Nigtwing,and Glory the Rainwing on a journey to put peace between all of the tribes.

    Amazing

    This book has gotten me back into dragons. After all these years, I thought that my passion for dragons was gone, but this story re-awakened my long dormant love of dragons.

    Wings of Fire series

    This is an amazing series! I am currently reading the 4th on my nook right now. Such an awesome series, i get hooked right from the prologue. I recomend it if you are... umm... ok with described violence, because its about dragons dealing with a raging war. But the violence easily adapts, you get used to it. So much mustery, adventure, and humor in this book series. If u are reading this rating, then you should better start reading!

    This book is really good because their is lots of cliff hangers

    This book is really good because their is lots of cliff hangers and you never want to stop reading it. I loved the book and TUI T. Sutherland is part of the Erin Hunter team helping to write the Warriors series which I HIGHLY recommend.

    Epic

    This story is very enjoyable and interesting. This is one of the best dragon books i have read in a long time. This is a story in which things can go wrong,which adds on to the intensity and drama and makes it a more enjoyable read,unlike some books in which the carachters are so awsome and unbeatable, so you get a very boring with no intensity. This book is different. It makes a story of tradegy,hope, and a fight to win. This series is currently number 2 on my list of favorites, number one bieng the Percy jackson series, and number three bieng The Heroes Of Olympus series. By the way, GO RAINWINGS THAT SPIT ACIDIC POISON AT EVIL QUEENS!
