Overview

The WINGS OF FIRE saga continues with a thrilling underwater adventure -- and a mystery that will change everything! The lost heir to the SeaWing throne is going home at last... She can’t believe it’s finally happening. Tsunami and her fellow dragonets of destiny are journeying under the water to the great SeaWing Kingdom. Stolen as an egg from the royal hatchery, Tsunami is eager to meet her future subjects and reunite with her mother, Queen Coral. But Tsunami’s triumphant return doesn’t go quite the way she’d imagined. Queen Coral welcomes her with open wings, but a mysterious assassin has been killing off the queen's heirs for years, and Tsunami may be the next target. The dragonets came to the SeaWings for protection, but this ocean hides secrets, betrayal—and perhaps even death.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—The dragonets set out to find the hidden underwater SeaWing kingdom and Queen Coral, Tsunami's mother, in this exciting sequel to The Dragonet Prophecy (Scholastic, 2012). When they arrive, Coral is thrilled to see the daughter who was stolen from her as an egg, but things don't go exactly as planned. Tsunami had always assumed she was the sole heir to the SeaWing throne, but a surprise younger sister leaves her confused about her future role, and Queen Coral's distrust of the other dragonets causes them to be imprisoned yet again. Having read the first book in the series will help youngsters understand the motivations behind the characters' choices, but isn't strictly necessary to enjoy the nonstop action. Tensions mount as someone continues to kill Coral's unhatched female dragonets, and Tsunami herself is attacked. The dragonets become more and more endearing as the series progresses, and the adults more sinister. Moments of danger and brutality are tempered with comic relief, making this a perfect adventure for young fantasy fans to sink their teeth into.—Mandy Laferriere, Fowler Middle School, Frisco, TX
From the Publisher

Praise for WINGS OF FIRE BOOK TWO:

"[A] perfect adventure for young fantasy fans to sink their teeth into." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

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

Kirkus Reviews
The dragonets of prophecy, free of both the Talons of Peace and the evil SkyWing queen, travel to the SeaWings' palace, hoping to find a safe haven from their many enemies. Infighting over who should lead leaves Tsunami feeling isolated. She dreams of a glorious homecoming befitting the next heir to the SeaWing throne. However, while Coral, the SeaWing queen, is welcoming, danger lurks beneath the dark water. Unable to speak the local language and thrust into a world of diplomacy and honor, Tsunami soon finds that the life of royalty is just as stifling as the cave in which she was raised. Faced with a choice between aligning herself with the SeaWings or continuing toward her prophecied destiny, Tsunami must decide where her loyalties lie. Along with the high-stakes decisions, the dragonets also face familiar adolescent challenges, including first crushes, parental angst and insecurity. This second installment in the Wings of Fire series proves to be as fast-paced and layered as the first. It also proves to be as violent. Explicit battle scenes, graphic deaths and even the suggestion that one dragon should "feel free to kill [himself]" will limit the allure of this series for many. Entertaining, but rugged. (Adventure. 9-12)

I would like to say wings of fire #1 was awsome!! My eight yr old son and I can't wait until bed time when he reads me a book then I read him chapters of wings of fire. He was very sad the night we were on our last chapter until I told him there was another book. I love the closeness we have and to teach him that reading can be fun and this book shows excitment and antisapation. I have ordered 2 and 3 and I will order #4 when it is available. Thanks

If you like action packed books with the main characters being dragons.... then read it. But start with wings of fire. This series is an awesome read and is unforgettable. To those of you who want to know when the next book comes out, it is june the first 2013. And if you can't wait for the next book then reread the first two.

Golden rule: if you dont have anything APPROPRIATE to say dont say anything at all. But otherwise, this book is amazing! Very visual. This book is full of many twists and turns, so you cant expet anything. These books are a must read for any dragon lover. They are a short but good read.

The second book in the, "Wings of Fire" series is just as good as the first. Just as the first book was written from Clay's(Mudwing) point of view, the second book is written from Tsunami's (Seawing) point of view. My daughter and I are looking forward to the third book in the series that will be written from Glory's (Rainwing) point of view. These books are creative and inventive and I am really curious to see what lies in store for the Dragonets of Destiny. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good adventure story.
