Having escaped from the Talons of Peace with four other dragonets, Tsunami is thrilled to be heading to the SeaWing Kingdom from which she was stolen years ago. The five dragonets of destiny are supposed to stop a war among the various dragon factions, and she is sure that her mother's kingdom may be a safe place for her and her companions. But they've barely arrived when the others are put in a cave, and Tsunami must navigate lies, deceit, and treachery from every direction. Through it all, she ...more

Tsunami has escaped from the control of the Talons of Peace with the other dragonets of the prophecy. She is tired of the neverending war between the different dragon factions and wants to finally meet her mother, Queen Coral of the SeaWings, since Tsunami was stolen from the royal nursery as an egg by Webs, who was merely trying to keep the dragonets safe. When Tsunami and the other dragons approach the SeaWing kingdom, Riptide rushes to attack them! Eventually, the misunderstanding is cleared ...more

Actual Rating: 3.5

I hate to say it, but I was really disappointed with the second book in the Wings of Fire series. I absolutely LOVED the first, but this one just didn't seem to hit the mark. The strange thing is though, I thought that I was going to like this one more because it was going to be from Tsunami's perspective . . . Yeah, no. I seriously considered giving this one a 3 star rating, just because of how much it disappointed me. The only reason I rounded up to 4 is because the first one

No second book syndrome here! A great sequel that captured my interest quickly!

This was such a fly through read. I picked it up and breezed through it so quickly and found myself immersed in the story.

I really enjoyed the plot. I wasn't bored at all while reading this. I liked Tsunami's narration very much, she made it interesting to read. I actually didn't mind the love interest here.

A couple things could have been done better, though. Peril was absent, and I'm not sure if the new characters in

Tsunami is coming home---but it isn't quite the homecoming she imagined. Having been raised away from the Seawings, she has little idea how to behave around her own people. Worse, someone has been killing the royal dragonets, and Tsunami is now a target.

Tsunami isn't my favorite of the five dragonets. She's bossy, impulsive, and stubborn, and since most of this book is about her, it took me a while to get engaged. It is also, however, as much a story about her coming to grips with some of her ow

The action packed, dramatic, and thrilling book that I begged to get after finishing the first in the series is called "Wings of Fire, the Lost Heir." This amazing tale of betrayal, love, and magic was made by 35 year old Tui T. Sutherland. The genre of this book is fantasy, fiction, and action . The genre of this book is fantacy and action, which is perfect for all of you Harry Potter fans. What the story is about is basicaly, a group of five dragons which are labled the dragonets of destiny, g ...more

Not a bad second installment, but I miss Clay as a narrator. This one is Tsunami-heavy, and even though it is supposed to be her story, I was disappointed in the small amount of page time the other dragonets got. I'm looking forward to Glory's story in the next book!

In Tui T. Sutherland’s Wings of Fire, The Lost Heir, Tsunami finds her mother, and found her happy ending, only to find out that someone has been killing her sisters for many years before and after she was born. But when Blister comes into the picture, Tsunami starts to look around for any sign that could lead her to the person behind it. In the meanwhile somebody has put Clay, Glory, Starflight, and Sunny in a cage AS PRISONERS!!!!!!!!! Can Tsunami save the day with her new little sister and fr ...more

This is the 2nd book in the Wings of Fire series. Right now there are six books in that series, although the first five books are supposed to be one self contained story with the sixth book starting another 5 book story arc. This book was a pretty easy read and was well written. I still think this series is something kids are going to enjoy a lot more than adults (unlike Sutherland's Menagerie series which I think a much broader range of ages will enjoy).

This book features Tsunami and in it we m

Una apasionante historia llena de aventuras con unos personajes muy originales y mágicos con la única misión de salvar el mundo.

Con un estilo ágil, lleno de acción a raudales y con los mejores personajes que os podéis imaginar... os invito a adentraros en la profecía de los Dragonets.

Os lo recomiendo a lectores de todas las edades (sobre todo si os gustan los dragones, la magia y la fantasía). Puede parecer infantil pero lo dragones (estos dragones) son atroces y despiadados. Matan sin contempla

Some of the key problems in this book are, fighting, murder, dragons, and a plan. The theme of this book is to always trust and believe in your friends, even after you get into a fight because they will always be there for you.
Some of the characters are:
Protagonists:
Tsunami-narrator- she is judgmental, quick to think and act, and she loves to swim!
Clay- a sweet and sensitive gentle giant who will do anything for his friends, and likes to play in mud.
Sunny- is shy and thoughtful, but yet gets to

This was just as good as the first book, and one of my favorite all time series. The SeaWings have always been my favorite tribe since the first book, and I enjoyed this glimpse into their lifestyle.
Summary:
Tsunami has just discovered she is the SeaWing princess, and so she travels to the SeaWing kingdom with her friends to be reunited with her mother, Queen Coral. When she reaches the sea she meets a mysterious but friendly young SeaWing, Riptide, who becomes her friend after a brief misund

The book "The Lost Heir" has many good elements as a book. Although it lacks some aspects, the story is not as simple as other books but not as complex as "The Lord of the Rings." Continuing the story line of the 1st book Wings of Fire "The Dragonet Prophecy" it has many similar elements. The characters get more development and interaction between them. There is a gap between both books because we see the characters much closer together than expected. Like any sequel, it doesn't incorporate as m ...more

So a lot of people ask me why I read middle grade novels so often. What I usually remind them is Harry Potter was originally marketed as a children's book. The fantastic thing about middle grade literature is that more often than not, the story is not driven by lovey dovey mushy crap and is instead wonderful little savory pieces of adventure without the bullshit.

This novel was just so wonderful in so many ways. There were twists and turns, cliff hangers, mystery, you name it this novel had it.

Short Summary (SPOILER ALERT):

But as she settles into her kingdom, Tsunami soon finds out that someone wants her dead, and that her friends aren't being treated nicely as guests. So now she must decide: does she want to stay and b

The main character in my book is a dragon named Tsunami. She is a sea wings and she is the whole point in my book. But I thought she was trying to save the egg in the prophecy but she is and she is not.She is trying to find someone and she’s probably been hunted I think all I know is that she is looking for someone and no matter what she will not stop looking.So someone stole an egg but Tsunami does not know that until she gets to the sea wing kingdom.But she want to go back home to the kingdom ...more

Over the summer I read a book called Wings of Fire and the Lost Heir. The author was Tui. T Sutherland. The genre is fantasy because there are talking dragons and some have dark magic to kill enemies. The setting is in a made up world present day called Phyrria. The main characters are a Sea dragon named Tsunami, her friends, that take the name of the dragnets and Tsunami's mother Queen Pearl. This book is about a dragon that finally finds her mother and finds out that she is the queen of the oc ...more

An AWESOME book. I am going to read all of the other books in the series. In the 1st book I sort of lost interest, but I started to read more and more and I got more and more interested. I couldn't put it down. I would recommend all the books in this series to EVERYONE who is into like dragons and lots of adventure. I mean unless you are only like a couple years old. Then you probably won't understand everything. Read EVERY book in the series and get really interested!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'd ...more

I was disappointed with this book at first because Tsunami’s character just wasn’t as likeable as Clay, the focus character of the first novel (each novel focuses on a different one of the five dragonets). Tsunami is aggressive, impulsive, and kind of douchey (is that an acceptable word to use for a children’s book protagonist? Oh well xD). The rest of the dragonets also seem to realize this and a rift begins to form between Tsunami and her friends, as they worry Tsunami might be becoming too vi ...more

Wings of fire, a book of action, randomness and suspense. This book has a lot of action no matter if it's dragons fighting to the death, protecting a egg, or a dragon statue enchanted to kill. Action helps make the book what it is. The randomness can turn up on every page it doesn't matter if it's a dead dragons corpse popping up, a bad thing to learn about what somebody did, or a rogue statue on the loose breaking eggs and killing the dragonets inside them. Randomness helps form this book to wh ...more

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Tui? What kind of name is that? Is it short for something?

Nope. Among the many great things to come out of New Zealand (the Lord of the Rings movies, cats that paint, my mom) is a bird called the tui—not as well known as the kiwi, but a heck of a lot noisier!

I was born July 31 (same birthday as Harry Potter!) in Caracas, Venezuela, and lived in Asuncion, Paraguay

“He [Riptide] sighed. "I said, 'What are you doing all the way out here?' and you said, 'Hey, sparkling teeth, I totally love three of your claws but not the others, and I wish your nose was a herrig so I could eat it, and also your wings sound like sharks snoring.'"
Tsunami burst out laughing.”
