This is another exciting adventure in the Wings of Fire series. ( )

This is the seventh book in the Wings of Fire series by Sutherland. The eighth book will be titled Escaping Peril and is expected to release in January 2016. I really enjoyed this installment in the Wings of Fire series; this series just keeps getting better and better.

Winter leaves the school at Jade Mountain to find his sister Icicle and save his brother Hailstorm. His fellow dragonettes decide to accompany him. Their journey takes them to the RainWing Kingdom and beyond; eventually they end up confronting Queen Scarlet yet again.

I really enjoy this middle grade adventure fantasy series about dragons and friendship. My son got me reading this series and it took me a while to warm up to it, but now I am hooked.

In this book we really get to know the next generation of dragons a lot better. Of course Winter is the focus of the story and it was nice to get insight into this moody and short-tempered dragon. We learn a lot about Winter’s background and he definitely has some trust issues to work through. Moon is in the story a lot as well, as are Qibli, and Kinkajou. All of the dragons have distinct and amusing personalities.

We do still get to see what the original five dragonettes are up to. It was a lot of fun to see the progress those original five are making in bringing the dragon clans together and trying to recover from the decades long war. It’s definitely a challenge but they seem to be up to it. I also loved the little cameo by Squid, he is hilarious; I hope he features in a future book.

The main story here is definitely Winter retrieving Hailstorm and facing his family’s continued disappointment in him. However, there is still a looming side story about a great danger coming from the skies. Additionally we are seeing more and more of the Scavengers (humans) as the story progresses.

Overall I really enjoyed this book in the Wings of Fire series; I think it was my favorite one so far. This series has been full of wonderful middle grade fantasy adventures. I love that the characters are building such solid friendships and that in the more recent books the adult dragons are working with the dragonettes to forge a peaceful dragon nation. I will definitely continue reading this series and highly recommend this to fantasy fans; especially the middle grade age set. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545685370, Hardcover)

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling series soars to even greater heights with a new prophecy and five new dragonets ready to claim their destiny!

Daring mission... or deadly mistake?

Winter has been a disappointment to his royal IceWing family his whole life. When his sister, Icicle, runs away from Jade Mountain Academy, fleeing terrible crimes and possibly planning to commit more, Winter knows that they both need a second chance to make things right -- if only he can find her.

Winter’s new clawmates, Moon, Qibli, and Kinkajou, won’t let him make this dangerous journey alone. They don’t seem to understand that IceWings, the most superior of all dragon tribes, can fix their own problems. When their search leads the dragonets straight into Queen Scarlet’s vicious talons, Winter is grateful to have some help. But even the bravest dragons can’t follow him to the Ice Kingdom, where he’ll have to face the greatest threat of all: his own family.
