Content descriptions

General Note: Chiefly illustrations.
Summary, etc.: Determined to end a generations-long war among the seven dragon tribes, a secret movement called the Talons of Peace draws on a prophecy that calls for a great sacrifice, compelling five appointed dragonets to fulfill a painful destiny against their will.
Not every dragonet wants a destiny-- 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. He's not so sure about the prophecy part, but Clay can't imagine not living with the other dragonets; they're his best friends. So when one of the dragonets is threatened, all five spring into action. Together, they will choose freedom over fate, leave the mountain, and fulfill their destiny -- on their own terms. The New York Times bestselling Wings of Fire series takes flight in this first graphic novel edition, adapted by the author with art by Mike Holmes. -- Provided by publisher.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 May #2
    The five dragonets, who prophecy has foretold will end the great dragon war, have escaped from their protective home to see the real world only to realize that things are far graver than they were ever taught. Adapted from Sutherland's middle-grade series, the story is surprisingly riveting; the politics involved between the warring factions and dragon races makes for great world building, and the war-torn world, complete with gladiatorial-style fights and backstabbings, is an intriguing backdrop for the five dragons' development. Comparisons to other fantasy properties are inevitable, but Sutherland and Holmes' series starter escapes most of those tropes and blazes its own path. The accompanying artwork, which is a bit bloodier than one might imagine for a kid's graphic novel, depicts the results of the dragon war, such as a bloody dragon battle and a few dragon murders. Holmes tones down the gore just enough, and his anime-like scenes, with bright colorization and expressive character design, nicely downplay the violence and emphasize the high-stakes action. Sure to be a hit among fantasy-adventure fans. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
