Stupid me thought it was October 15th, 2018 and not 2019.
I was about to storm my library demanding why I couldn't find the book in their catalogs. Thank goodness I looked over the publication date again.

I actually read the book and as you can guess.......
If you see my other reviews, you would know that I rated the other graphic novels veryyyy low because I felt like they didn't really represent the character and thier designs properly. This graphic novel is the exception though and

The story is so good, and combined with the gorgeous illustrations I am just so in love with these adaptations!

Still not a fan about how some scenes are cut out of the graphic novels, but as a whole, this one has been my favorite for a variety of reasons. Firstly, Glory is my favorite WOF character of all time, and anything that includes her is better (I promise I'm not rating the book on this, though, lol). The story felt a lot more streamlined than the previous two graphic novels, almost as though the creators finally figured out what scenes are the least important to the plot and are removed compared ...more

For real though, it's been an unexpected ray of light recently and is the sort of no-brainer content that my pandemic/coup/holyshitwhatthefuckisgoingon brain needs. It's v. adorbs and is a nice escape.

I liked this book a little more than the first and second books for a couple of reasons. First, I liked the storyline better than the other two and I liked the ending. It left me wondering what the next book will be about. I wanted to read the fourth book so bad, but it has not yet come out yet. I would recommend this book to people who have read the first and second books and anyone who needs a quick and interesting book.

I was disappointed with how some characters were designed in this graphic novel and how rushed the ending was. I could tell that the ending was extremely rushed with how scenes didn't transition or progress right, random scenes that were actually necessary were taken out, how blocky and lacking in creativity the panels were, the censorship can't make up its mind, and almost every rainwing has the exact same body type.
Anyone who has read the book will know that Jambu is supposed to be constantly

I’ve been a sucker for dragon stories for as long as I can remember, and Wings of Fire in particular has been an enjoyable series that I’ve read since middle school. It’s fun to see the characters and world come to life in illustrations, and as always the plot of these books keeps me hooked! A major win for dragons.

I think this has to be the best Wings of Fire graphic novel I've ever read. Probably because this book's point of view is coming from Glory, my favorite character out of the five dragonets. Glory's sarcastic personality is what makes her my favorite character. It makes me grin every time Glory is sarcastic to the other dragonets. It was heartwarming when Glory found out that Jambu was her brother, just how like Clay found out he had a bunch of awesome brothers and sisters. In case you haven't no ...more
I haven't had a chance to read the original novels (they're never on my library's shelves - always checked out!!) so I've been grabbing the graphic novels as they come in to give me a taste. Totally worth it.

The world building in this series is amazing. Each of the prophesied dragonets has their own distinct personality with both good and bad traits (none are perfect), and each of the dragon breeds/kingdoms is unique. There's tons of dragon politics at play (on the big and small scale - between

I was really excited and nervous for this volume - technicolor dragons in a brilliant rainforest is something that should be thrilling in graphic novel format, and can so easily fall flat. Overall, this adaptation was solid - the art is bright and colorful without being garish, although the style is still fairly simple. I'd love to see a more elaborate artist take on these book, though I know that won't happen.

In text, discriminating characters quickly often relies on the first letter/syllable o

(DISCLAIMER: I'm going through this series with my daughter, as bedtime stories. I'm not sure what order we're using, because she picks them out.)

Dragons aren't usually my thing. However, my daughter adores this series to the point of obsession, and I can see why. Sutherland has an easy, engaging narrative style that differentiates each character's personality without getting bogged down and the narrative grinding to a halt.

Sutherland also has a firm, Soderbergh-like grasp of dialogue and bante

This book follows the dragonets of destiny, Clay, Tsunami, Starflight, Sunny, and Glory as they travel through the rainforest. Glory wants to prove that Rainwings are not lazy or weak, as their guardians said in the tunnels. But she finds out that the rainwings actually were somewhat lazy and naive, though they need to be in order to keep themselves healthy. Worse yet is the fact that Rainwings are vanishing without a trace, and the others don't seem to notice or care. Glory decides to find them ...more

This is one of my favorites from the series, so reading it as a graphic novel made the experience even better.

All those crazy loveable Rainwings brought to life in vivid color. It made me love them even more. I really didn't think I could love Kinkajou more, but it happened. The artist captures her innocent enthusiasm so well.

It really is amazing how close all the drawings are to what I imagined. That never happens in movies. Deathbringer was just as handsome, Blaze was exactly as princessy, Glo

3.5 stars, but I'm rounding up because I love the story so much. And Glory is one of my favorites from the original 5 books. :D I love this series, so when I found one of the graphic novel versions in a used bookstore, I had to take it home with me. :D

It's a good adaptation of the novel. But I'm not a huge fan of the art style. It's not bad. It's just not my favorite. Some of the pictures are really nice. There's a beautiful drawing of Jambu. But overall? I think a lot of the character designs

For middle-grade books, these deserve a whole lot more credit for what they contain.
Disability rep? Umm yes!
Proper world building for EVERY dragon tribe?
Gorgeous illustrations that legit came from my brain when I read the book?
It is all there and it makes my happyyyyyyy.
Of course, it also centres Glory as the main character *gagging noises* but it also has Kinkajou so all is forgiven. Also love the irony of Glory hating Tsunami for wanting to be queen and then... he he he.
Now onto Starflight, m

The Hidden Kingdom was always my favorite of the original Wings of Fire books, and it makes me so happy to have it in graphic novel form! I enjoyed seeing all the bright colors of the RainWings, and how the artist interpreted the parts of Pyrrhia. Some parts of it made me tear up, and I could remember some parts of the narration from the novel! Specifically, “splash, splash, splash, right on Kinkajou’s wing.” Favorite quote: “ ‘We came to rescue you. Aren’t you pleased?’ ‘Oh. I’m right in the mi ...more

I’m reading this graphic novel series with my 7 year old son. We love it! And now my 11 year old daughter is reading the series too. The storytelling is awesome! The plots are awesome! The twists are awesome! It is very appropriate for young readers and adults. And with as many dragons there are we never get lost on who is who. The artist makes every dragon distinguishing from the next. The humor is great too. We love this series. Glory is one of my favorite characters. She is hilarious. And I l ...more

I have always been a fan of Wings of Fire. I've read all the novels and they are all amazing! :) I'm really excited about the the graphic novel coming out, because... I don't know, just excited. The Graphic Novel is pretty good. It has most of the characters in the story, but there are also quite a lot of skipped scenes, such as Glory and Clay fighting when escaping from the volcano island. So I would really recommend the novel before reading the graphic novel. But all in all it is a really grea ...more

It's a pretty good read. Does a pretty good job translating the story into a visual medium. My only problem is the way they portray some of the dragon's actions. What the heck is up with how the dragons sit and stand in this book? Glory on the cover is positioned a bit too much like a human on the cover, and the queen is sitting on her tail. Shouldn't they be sitting more like a dog would? Or any animal with a tail? ...more

I was not expecting to like this book, as it is an adaption of the original novel, but it was surprisingly satisfying. It was really cool to see the drawings of all the characters and settings, and it stayed very true to the story. The illustrations were beautiful, and they matched the descriptions in the original. This is the first of the Wings of Fire graphic novels I've read and I hope to read more! ...more

Omg, I have a new respect for dragons.
This ended on a cliffhanger, so I am SO dang happy that there is another graphic novel I can read. (Real books are great, but it's fun to have a break from that, you know)?
The first book was about Clay the Mudwing, then Tsunami the Seawing, then Glory the Rainwing. This next one is about Starflight the Nightwing, so YAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!
So exited to read this book!!! It's in my "Want to Read" books, obviously!!!

I learned from Jesset that the development of the graphic novel takes place over the course of the series. I read Book Three - The Hidden Kingdom of the Wings of Fire series. The characters of the dragons and the challenges unfold throughout the graphic novel and the end is actually a teaser for the next book, much like a television series.

The best book ever. Its so good I get mad at my teacher wen she tells me to pot it down. I think Glory will is a good Qween. yet i think that she is not as powerful to beat the night wings. i think thay might just kill the a lot of Rainwing. or the Qween will get her sweet revenge. or the Deathbringer might just get killed by Glory. yet if the Deathbringer can thro clay, he is powerful enof to kill him.

sorry about some spelling

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
