When Ostrich, one of Qibli's friends, is kidnapped by a Sandwing, Qibli and Winter race to the Sand Kingdom to rescue her. There, Qibli encounters his awful family who seem to be plotting with Darkstalker against Queen Thorn.

Can Qibli rescue Ostrich, save Thorn, and defeat Darkstalker? ( )

This is the 10th book in the Wings of Fire series. This was a really excellent continuation of the series. This book ties up the story arc dealing with Darkstalker and starts up a new one. Sutherland has said that there are going to be another 5 books in this series (bringing it to a total of 15 books). I have enjoyed this series but mostly continue to read it because my 10 year old son adores this series and we talk to each other about it a lot.

This book centers around Qibli; the dragon who had a rough childhood and desperately wants animus magic. With most of the dragons enchanted to follow Darkstalker, Qibli is one of the few who can stop Darkstalker. Qibli uses his wits and intelligence (along with some magic objects from Turtle) to break Darkstalker’s enchantment on the other dragons and stop Darkstalker from taking over the world.

We learn a lot about Qibli’s past and there is a lot about his birth family as well. As with previous books there is a lot in here about using power responsibly and about the importance of friendship. Additionally Qibli realizes that even though his birth family is pretty horrible, he can create himself a new family out of the friends and dragons who support and love him.

I always think the topics and events covered in this series are a bit advanced for middle grade readers. However my son (who is 10 now) has been reading these books since he was seven or so and really loves them. These books are fun, interesting, and engaging. They also provide some food for thought.

Overall this was a fantastic continuation of the Wings of Fire series. I really loved how the Darkstalker storyline was wrapped up. These books are always easy to read, engaging, and well written. I would definitely recommend to middle grade and older readers who love dragons, adventure, war, and magic. ( )

Quotations
"Why can't we go two days without a crisis?" Tsunami demanded when they told her. "Why is this school a magnet for disaster?"
"I'm getting my own cave for real this time!" he shouted. "I will not be forced to cohabitate with a deranged dragon!" Winter tore off the tunnel before Qibli could stop him.
"Oh, aha," Peril said thoughtfully. "I know! Maybe if I set it on fire a little bit, that'll scare it into doing what you want!"
Smolder lifted his wings. "Well, I haven't stayed alive this long by running toward the shrieking things in the dark."
"Yes, I do!" Anemone said ferociously. "I want to make him notice me by stabbing him in the eyeball!"
