Deskripsi

A thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation!

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 . . .

Tentang penulis

Tui T. Sutherland & Kari Sutherland are sisters and best friends, and if you can’t tell by looking at them which one is older, Tui certainly isn’t going to tell you. They grew up in South America, traveling a lot and moving several times (and they’re still only about 80 percent certain that their parents weren’t secret agents). Kari now lives in California, while Tui lives in Boston, but they use every excuse they can to see each other (like, say, writing a book together).

    Our whole family LOVED this book! It was so amusing, suspenseful, and “thrilling.” ? This is our second time listening to it because we loved it so much the first time. I think the narrator did amazing voices!! We totally recommend the amazing five Wings of Fire books. So fun! ??

    Five dragon eggs are taken on the brightest night so that the prophecy on peace will be fulfilled. As they grow up under a mountain and learn history and battle tricks, they form their own family but don't stop thinking about their families of origins and how they will one day find them. I enjoyed this book. The world building is great as we learn about the dragonets and their clans. The young ones are not happy with their circumstances and do what they feel they must to fulfill the prophecy earlier rather than later. Of course, they run into problems but they start to discover their strengths and talents as well as those of the other dragonets. There is violence and death. Some of it I was not prepared for.I particularly loved Clay, the Mudwalker. This seems to be his story. He is not what the others think nor what their instructors believe him to be. The others also are more than their instructors believe about them. This is an interesting group of characters and I cannot wait to continue the series

    {First of 13: [Wings of Fire] series. Children’s, fantasy} (2012)Dragons are divided into 7 different tribes, suited to their natures, each led by a queen. The queen of the Sandwing dragons of the desert has been killed by a scavenger (human) and her three daughters - Blister, Blaze and Burn - are fighting over who gets the throne. Each daughter has allied with some of the other tribes and so a dragon war has raged for years. The inscrutable Nightwing dragons issued a prophecy stating that five dragonets will bring the war to an end. The Talons of Peace identified eggs that they believed were the ones foretold and have been bringing up the dragonets in a safely hidden cave. Clay, solid and dependable, is a Mudwing; Starflight, who likes learning, is a Nightwing, their Seawing is Tsunami, small Sunny is a Sandwing and instead of the foretold Skywing they have Glory, a multihued Rainwing. However, the dragonets feel restricted by not knowing about the outside world from personal experience and the story begins with them plotting to leave their hiding place and what happens when they do. They find that the world isn’t quite what they expected. I quite liked this story although sometimes the dragons acted more human-like so it was a bit harder to envision them as dragons and the illustration on the cover didn’t help. I would put the reading age at around 8-12 years old; there is some fighting and killing but it’s not heavily focused on. This was an e-book I borrowed from the library for holiday reading and I’m looking forward to borrowing more in the series. 3.5***

    Good for a young readers book. I’m reading it because my tween daughters are into it. Surprisingly cut-throat and violent at times for a book about kid dragons.

    Amazing book, would definitely recommend it to kids 10+. At first it can seem a challenge to start reading a series with 13 books in it, but as you start you just cant stop. Book is very descriptive and I love how Tui t Sutherland inculded a list of the dragons of phyrriha and their abilities.

    This is a crazy series, it has enough action to keep it tense, enough kindness and sympathy to make you love the characters, and enough mystery to keep you turning the pages. One the my favorite series. I hope there's more soon⌚

    If I hadn’t read this to endure myself to my youngest daughter, I would have rated it two stars. The book didn’t keep my interest–no character was more developed than one of the sidekicks in He-Man. In fact, the whole thing could be a Saturday Morning Cartoon, if you don’t mind a little more death than Power Rangers. They bleed, they take prisoners, they torture, they disfigure. But it still feels engineered to sell toys to the kids.It starts well, but the tones keep switching back and forth. From cutesy bonding to gladiator violence to royal court intrigue. And the author does not maintain distinguishable character voices for everyone (and there are a lot for a MG book). And what’s worse, they don’t sound like dragons. Now, I understand that dragons aren’t real so no one knows what they sound like. But my point is the dialogue lacks species characterization. They sound like humans, not four-legged flying carnivores. If you didn’t know they were dragons, this could be any YA novel.It’s a strange little book with a lot of cliches (like a Chosen One Prophecy and five-man band) but at least it doesn’t condescend. I guess if you like dragons, it might be worth looking through. But it’s definitely not the new Harry Potter. It’s not even the next Divergent.

    Follett gives Wings of Fire a reading level of 5.1 and an interest level of third through sixth grade. I honestly believe my seventh and eighth grade students will enjoy the series. Until they read the first book, they may be slightly intimidated by an eight volume series. Book one is actually engaging and a quick read. As a librarian, I am pleased that the book was published in eight books. Smaller books have a much longer survival rate in the library. The student who recommended the series said that it is a story where dragons are the main characters. It appears to be a great series for fantasy fans. I'm looking forward to finishing the series myself.

    This story takes place on Pyrrhia, where dragons rule the world. Interestingly enough, there are "scavengers" which turn out to be humans, but to dragons, they're just food. It is interesting to read about how the dragons interact with the scavengers, and vice versa.

    The story centers around the "dragonets of prophecy", which really turn out just be children, or perhaps young adults. They start meddling in dragon clan politics, kind of figuring out who they are and what their destiny is. It can be a bit unrealistic at times on how youth solve problems and interact with their elders, but it's a fantasy fiction, so you take the punches as they come.

    The world is thought out well, including the different dragon clans (Mudwings, Seawings, etc.), and how each dragon is created. In my opinion, these dragons are all around more "complete" and "realistic" than the How To Train Your Dragon books. Although, I do thing I would have changed some of the dragon attributes to make things just a bit more unique and satisfying (why all of them have forked tongues?).

    Aside from doing a good job with character and world building, Tui does a great job keeping the plot place progressing evenly and unpredictable. This is what makes a story fun to read, when you can't figure out what's going to happen next, and you're always engaged with the characters as the plot unfolds. There really isn't any part of the book that is a bore to read.

    I would like to see more distinct character traits in the different dragonets. Sure, we have the book worm, and the practical go getter, but I would like to see them exaggerated a bit. Perhaps a dragonet is consistently sarcastic, while another is consistently droll and serious. You could have a dragonet that is the trouble maker, and one that is the grump. Seeing as though this series is targeted towards younger readers, I think kids would like to see more of these stereotypes play out. As it sits, a lot of the personalities are very "not exciting". Not that they fall flat, but they don't really jump out on the page either.

    Regardless, this is a great read, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.

    I rounded up to four stars from 3.75. It was a fun read! There were a few things that weren't quite good enough to bring it to a full four stars for me, but I really did like it. I'll continue with the series, much to my daughters happiness, haha!

    First in "The Dragonet Prophecy" series. Great for middle schoolers who love fantasy, dragons, and the importance of accepting your special gifts and sticking with your friends. Some violence but nothing too graphic.

    A group of rebel dragons who call themselves the Talons of Peace are trying to make a prophecy come true in the hopes that it will put an end to the current war between dragons. To do this, they gather five dragon eggs and hide them underground. One of the dragonets, Glory, was not part of the prophecy, but instead a last minute replacement when the other dragon egg was crushed by one of the dragon Queens. They are each a different species of dragon and become very close while growing up together in the caves. When Glory’s life is threatened, the dragonets decide to leave their “prison” and take their chances in the warring world.This fantasy story shows the importance of friendship, determination in the face of adversity, and the senselessness of war. It also has some strong undertones of racism and stereotyping that the dragonets do not “see” as they get to know and appreciate each other.Illustrations at the front of the book show the eight different species of dragon that are mentioned in the story, along with descriptions of their unique abilities and alliances in the war.

    Clay and four other dragonets and raised in a hidden underground cave in the hopes that they are the dragons to fulfill a prophecy that will be peace to the warring kingdom of dragons. Hard to get started and keep the different powers of the dragon groups straight at first. But the characters of the five are distinct and likeable. They form strong bonds and an unlikely family group. Clay is their unlikely leader, a dragon who does not like violence and wants to care for his sibs. Mean queens, fulfilling destiny, overcoming obstacles. No new ground here, but it is an enjoyable ride.
