Instead, as Darkstalker's dangerous influence spreads across Pyrrhia, entrancing or killing every dragon in the seven tribes, Qibli can only grasp the small animus objects he's borrowed from Turtle. With some clever thinking, Qibli's talons finally hold the power to make a difference.
But prophecies are not easy to rewrite. Can Qibli be the magical force Pyrrhia needs, or will he be the one to bring Jade Mountain -- and his family, his friends, his whole world -- crashing down?

Written by a ten year old boy
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.
A huge portion of the book was with the character Qibli, and his journey around the kingdom of sand. Not much of it was dealing with Darkstalker, the main villain in the book, and which we so felt hyped for. It seemed so effortless to break Turtle out of the prison and to, later on, stop the fighting between the Nightwings and the icewings. I felt like Qibli was very clever throughout the story, and the characters are really well developed. I still would recommend this book. Another gripe for me was speculation, throughout the series you'd speculate on what would happen next. You'd stay awake at night wondering what would happen next. However, this didn't quite show in the book. Still a solid book in the series.
If you didn't know this book is based on Qibli's perspective. You meet his family and understand more about him and his life including his crush on Moon. (Pretty sad) He helps his friends stop the prophecy, and defeat Darkstalker with a bit of animus magic in a really weird way. (But also kind of cute) (you will see what I mean)
Wings of Fire Forever!
