The Dragonet Prophecy (Wings of Fire Graphic Novels #1)

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.

Kirkus Reviews

Faithful to the original, this stellar adaptation is sure to delight both those familiar and newcomers to this series, and with universal themes such as good versus evil and the hero’s quest for self-identity, this may even ignite new interest in the genre. Dazzling; a must-read for any dragon fan.

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7--This graphic novel adaptation of the first "Wings of Fire" installment centers on five young "dragonets" who are being trained to save the dragon world from war and destruction as they rebel against their handlers and strike out to discover their own destiny. They encounter a wicked queen who takes them captive, and the dragonets must work together with the help of a new friend to escape death and destruction in the gladiator-style fighting ring. The full-color illustrations bring the dragons and their surroundings to life, and the fast-paced, plot-driven story translates well to the graphic novel format. One of the dragons, Glory, can alter her appearance, which may be confusing, as her colors sometimes change without explanation. The text bubbles are occasionally hard to follow, such as when multiple dragons speak at once. However, readers comfortable with the comic format or familiar with the first book will be able to understand. VERDICT Fans of the series will be drawn to this visual representation of their favorite characters, as will those who enjoy epic, animal-based fantasies.--Ellen Conlin, Naperville Public Library, IL

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.
