For year, Ying hated his grandmaster for denying him the opportunity to train as a Dragon, and held a deep resentment for his five younger brothers–grandmaster’s favorites. He took his revenge and burnt the Cangzhen temple to the ground, but the five youngsters survived and continue to be a thorn in his side. Yet, when betrayed by the emperor and imprisoned, it was his younger sister, Hok, who rescued him. Now Ying begins to realize that Tonglong has been manipulating him for a long time. Ying needs to figure out who are his friends and who are his enemies . . .and he needs to figure it out fast!

    " This one had a lot more action then most of the other books and was way easier to get in to. "

    " This is the first book that Jeff stone wrote based on a bad guy. I think he will do all different kinds of character so the reader will know all sorts of characters. I think this is a very creative way to let the reader know more about the character. In this book, Ying was a dynamic character. He was really bad and evil and malicious. Then, when he figured out the truth about what happened to his dad and how he killed his own grandpa not knowing the truth, he felt hurt. He got betrayed by his minions and was left alone. I kind of felt bad for him. My favorite part was when he changed and went to look for his mother. His mother taught him dragon style and he became stronger. "

    " Man, I really wanted to hate Ying...oh well. "

    " A seventh grader with whom I'm working picked this as a required, but free, choice. I'm not sure exactly why he picked the fifth in the Five Ancestors series without having seen any of the others, but I also read 'Tiger,' the first. I'm a bit more linear, I guess. At any rate, I found the writing in 'Tiger' prosaic and featureless at first, and the story flat and plain. But the book began to grow on me. Besides the fact that they're about child kung fu warriors, the popularity of Stone's series is due to lots of action and fast pacing. And they hold another enticement: characters are not purely good, nor completely evil. In 'Tiger,' Ying, an elder 'brother' who has seemingly gone rogue, appears to clearly be a bad guy. But by 'Eagle,' we learn he's not. Stone reveals the reasons why his characters make good and bad choices, and leaves it for his readers to judge. That's sophisticated, and pretty cool, for books aimed at middle-schoolers. "
