It is now time for Tsunami to find her family. When the dragonets do, it is not what was expected. Now Tsunami has to save her friends but also her family. What she decides to do takes a lot of courage.

I enjoyed this book. I like getting to know the dragonets and how they find out what family really is. The story kept me interested. The plots and intrigues going on keep me riveted. I cannot wait to read book 3. ( )

{Second of 13: Wings of Fire series. Children’s, fantasy} (2012)

This second book follows the ‘dragonets of destiny’ as they search for their families and try to work out how they’re going to fulfill the prophecy and bring an end to the dragon war. Having been taken from their families as eggs and brought up in isolation in an underground cave, the five dragonets are discovering the difference between reality and the scrolls they’ve been taught from. They’ve all dreamed of being reunited with their families but will the reality live up to the dream?

This time it’s Tsunami the Seawing’s turn to find her family and discover how they feel about her, how much she doesn’t know about her tribe’s culture, how it will affect her relationship with the other dragonets and how she feels about the Seawings. And they meet Blister, the second of the Sandwing queens around whom the dragon war is being fought.

I feel the writing has improved from the first book including the characterisation (Glory the Rainwing, for instance, is starting to get a bit irritating). The dragons are more dragon-like than in the first book for the most part except for having pots in the kitchen (considering they eat the majority of their food raw). There are still a few niggles; the constant use of the word ‘talons’ as a substitute for ‘hands’ instead of ‘finger/ nail/ claw’ for instance (and the dragons have all acquired ‘snouts’ which is ... accurate but unromantic).

This would work well for the 8-12 age group but there is violence and killing. There is a description of a dragon being electrocuted at one point and a scene with dragons dying in battle.

... body slipped over the edge into the electric eel moat.
... A blinding flash of blue sizzled up the cascading waterfall. Tsunami jumped back, and all five dragonets huddled close in the center of the island. The water in the moat churned and seethed around the spot where (the dragon) had disappeared. Thick green tails thrashed through the bubbles and sparks flew as if several bolts of lightning were striking at once.
... Slowly the flashes calmed down until only an occasional zap appeared in the wall.
And then they all stopped. The waterfall was quiet, and so was the moat.
Tsunami could see the eels, still clustered around a large, dark shape at the bottom of the pool. But their frenzy had subsided, and she guessed she was lucky she couldn’t see any details of what they were doing now.

I am enjoying the series. War makes one become its true raw self. ( )

This book starts off when Webs escapes from an attack at the Talons of peace cave through an underwater cavern. When he surfaces he sees some other dragons he recognizes he walks up to them and asks them what’s going on the dragons names were Cirrus and Nautilus some others he didn’t recognize. When Nautilus starts speaking he starts talking about how Webs has done something wrong. Webs is confused by this statement and a second later Cirrus jumps on Webs knocking him down and Nautilus says that the only to redeem himself was to make sacrifices. Sacrifices as in giving up his life. Webs freaks out pushes Cirrus of himself and flies away escaping. From then on he knew he was an outlaw to the talons of peace.

What i didn’t like about this series is that the 1-5 series was fine but the 6-10 books had WAY to many surprises. I mean like after 1 happens then a few pages later another 1 happens i mean like it’s good that there can be surprises but not to many. What i also didn’t like about this is that it has to much war and bloody stuff .

My opinion on this book was that it’s so good that when i finish a book i count stop reading the series. It’s so good that if i get stuck on a cliffhanger i think of what might happen next and i’m excited for it when i figure it out. What i liked about this is that it involves a lot of mystery and fantasy along with fighting it’s cool.

My son and I liked this 2nd addition to the popular Wings of Fire series. Now that the dragonet's are free all they want to do is go to where they're homes should have been and be reunited with the parents they were stolen from. After Clay's disappointing trip to the Mudwing clan in book one, the dragonet's set out to find the Kingdom of the Seawings- ruled by Tsunami's mother Queen Coral. Tsunami soon finds out if her reunion with her mother is everything she dreamed of or a big disappointment like Clay's.

We liked that the whole book focused on Tsunami's journey home and her reunion with her family. Unfortunately, they do end up locked up in prison but once again make a great escape (that's 3 times this has happened now...) On their way out of the prison they save Dune, one of the captors who raised them. He was barbed by a Sandwings poison tale and needs a cure. After discovering Glory's ability to spit some hellatious venom in the first book, they set out for the Rainwing kingdom next hoping they will have healers who know what to do for Dune's injury.

This book was faster paced than the first and it really helped readers get to know Tsunami, the history, and palace life in the Seawing kingdom. Tsunami learns valuable lessons about humility and that while her biological family is important, the friends she was raised with are her family too and need her. Tsunami changes from strutting around reminding everyone she's the princess and future queen to gladly supporting her little sister becoming the next Seawing queen.

This is a great series for middle grades and up. My 9-year-old son and I love dragons so reading this series to him before bed every night is fun for us both. Happy reading! 📚
