This book is set in a mythical land called Pyrrhia. It Wings on Fire is about the five dragonets of the prophecy named Clay, Tsunami, Glory, Sunny, and Starflight. Each of the dragonets are from different dragon tribes giving them different abilities. In this book, the dragonets are being trained to fulfill the prophecy to end the war in secret in a hidden cave. The dragonets don’t like being in the cave because they have been there since they hatched and have never left it. The dragonets have never even met their families.
Also, if we’re really getting worked up about this, pretty sure clay was like 6 in the first arc, and peril was seven or eight, and peril was definitely thirsting even then. “Implied romantic interest” does NOT mean there was any, innocent until proven guilty. Deathbringer was just being friends with Glory. Friends act the way he did all the time, don’t even try to argue about that.
This series may as well break the records when it comes to the number of the active antagonists. Ever since “Lord of the Rings” came out in the fifties, epic fantasy literature took the world by storm. Many writers were inspired by Tolkien’s work and tried to succeed him, some of them successfully (see G.R.R Martin), some of them failed miserably, and numerous copycats emerged. Among these beings, there is a particular sort that has always caused awe and respect among the readers- dragons. Is there a person who does not like these fire-spewing intimidating, yet magnificent creatures?
- She wasn’t half RainWing, or half LightWing or half SkyWing, she was Anemone of the SeaWings!
- Or Orca used a soul-sucker to suck up her soul?
- She know what her readers like best, and she gives them just that.
- On closer examination, he found that the painting depicted Tipu Sultan’s army fighting the British.
On the topic of violence, it’s more than I’d like to see as a parent but my 8yo daughter and several of her classmates read the series and weren’t turned off by it. I’ve heard of it being too much for some younger readers. But for others, an other-worldly fantasy book can be a safe space in which to explore and feel big emotions and not become anxious about it happening to themselves in the real world.

Are you a IceWing who loves the cold or a SeaWing who loves the ocean. Now its time to find out which out of the seven dragon tribes of Pyrria you belong to. So when the dragonets seek shelter in the rain forest, Glory is devastated to find that the treetops are full of RainWings that nap all day and know nothing of the rest of Pyrrhia. Worst of all, they don’t realize — or care — that RainWings are going missing from their beautiful forest. But Glory and the dragonets are determined to find the missing dragons, even if it drags the peaceful RainWing kingdom where they never wanted to be — into the middle of the war. Clay has grown up under the mountain, chosen along with four other dragonets to fulfill a mysterious prophecy and end the war between the dragon tribes of Pyrrhia.
