This first audiobook in a thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation!

FORMAT: Unabridged Audio on 8 CDs

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

    " Dragon fans will enjoy. Illustrations and map are excellent to set mood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 2/7/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/23/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/10/2014

    " Author seems to write more for adults than for kids. there were undertones of darkness and violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucas | 1/10/2014

    " All the names were a bit confusing at the beginning as I tried to place where each dragon came from but the more pages I read the better the story became. I really don't think the story hits it's stride until a few difficult decisions are made by Clay (one of the dragonets) when it comes to his and the other dragonets destiny. I would recommend this book to people that like a good mystery...even if they don't like reading books heavy in the fantasy world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonia Loo | 1/6/2014

    " I really like this book. It full of adventure and sometimes confusing because of the different species of dragons. Another reason I like this is because of the author. The author (Tui T. Sutherland) was one of the authors who help write the Seekers series. Definitely a 5 out of 5. "

    " This was my favorite book, EVER! Tsunami, Sunny, and Glory were my favorite characters. This is the only book that I didn't skip at least one page. YAY! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 1/2/2014

    " Sutherland creates a fascinating, spellbinding world of dragons, mystery, and magic. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I wish that the book included more exploring/adventuring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 12/16/2013

    " Book I am reading with Ava. Does have some dramatic and slightly graphic scenes that were hard for her to read about- and she asked a lof of questions- but does have a good plot line for book one of three. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 9/6/2013

    " Violent and rather bleak. I liked the descriptions of the dragons, their different powers,etc. but I thought a little more levity would have improved this book a great deal. Story focuses on war, but is unnecessarily depressing. Not for sensitive kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy DePaolo | 6/5/2013

    " I read this to Zoe, and we both loved it! We are hooked on the series and have started book 2. I think this book is great for all ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nadine | 2/18/2013

    " GREAT character development. Fast-paced. Can't skim because every word packs a punch. A little heavy on the death/violence, but this is a book about Fighting Dragons and ending a war. Still, good messages, good writing, fun reading. DEFINITELY recommend! "

    " All I could think of as I read this book was Watership Down but wtih Dragons. Sill want to know if the Scavengers in the book are really humans. "
