A thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation!

The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy -- a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice.

Five dragonets are collected to fulfill the prophecy, raised in a hidden cave and enlisted, against their will, to end the terrible war.

But not every dragonet wants a destiny. And when the select five escape their underground captors to look for their original homes, what has been unleashed on the dragon world may be far more than the revolutionary planners intended . . .

Quotes & Awards

  • “While a lot happens in this first book, Sutherland has taken time to flesh out the characters and make each vital to the story, rather than simply overwhelming in their numbers. Dramatic battle scenes, double-crosses, and one seriously deranged queen makes Wings of Fire a series that should have broad appeal.”

    Booklist

  • “Fully fleshed-out characters have unique personalities influenced by the distinct traits of their tribes. Plot twists and turns abound, and will keep readers cheering for the dragonets to the end.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Fast-paced and detailed…This first outing has all the key ingredients for a successful formula-fantasy series.”

    Kirkus

    " Though the beginning chapters could have been more smoothly written, this is a fairly decent beginning to a promising new series for young fantasy - especially dragon - lovers. Five young dragons have been stolen from their homes while they were still in their eggs and hidden away for years in order to fulfill a prophecy. War has been raging through the dragon tribes for years, and the young dragons are destined to end it - if they can survive. This first novel focuses on Clay, the MudWing dragonet, who isn't sure he wants to embrace his destiny as much as he wants to leave the mountain to find his own family and freedom. When one of his friend's survival is threatened, Clay is forced to make a decision that affects the destiny of all the young dragons. Can't wait for the next installment. "

    " I know it got great reviews, and it was recommended enthusiastically by a kid. Just not my kind of book. Took me weeks to read, which is telling in and of itself. Dragons this time, but feel free to substitute cats, wolves, or owls and you know this book. "

    " This is a really good first book in the series, although the prologue and epilogue are rather violent (not by fantasy standards, but by 2-3rd grade standards, those who will be reading the book. Still the story itself is action-packed, and, for kids who love dragons, this is a must-read. It follows in the grand tradition of children's series fantasy with animal protagonists (i.e., Redwall, Guardians of Ga'hoole, Warriors, etc.), and it can hold its own against all of them. "
