For those who aren't bothered by this lifestyle, you will probably enjoy this book, as it has new dragons and a fun plot. My daughter was disappointed she couldn't finish it, but this is a line I will not cross.
He said the book was ok... but was disappointed in the fact two of the female characters were joined in a relationship. He finished the book in one day and says the book focused on that relationship. To him it just didn't make sense.
He's not so eager to get the next one and wants to return this one. Which is sad. He really has loved the series for so long.
Now to the parents who claim "liberal" agenda or whatever. If the subject comes up, I encourage you to use this opportunity to educate your children on the many different kinds of families out there. This is not liberal, it's people living lives like you, just with the same sex. It helps also grow children that are able to adapt better in life. It's time to stop teaching hate. Teach that folks (and dragons!) do not fit the box you want to put people in. Enjoy life and live your true self. And be happy!!!
No longer interested in this book and would not be interested anymore in any future books. She said she just didn’t understand why the author had to romance any of the dragons to begin with and this book was horrible and she ruined the character development of her previous book.

Also: Out of all the troubling subject matters addressed in the entire series (Violence/gore/infanticide, homicide, open racism, manipulation, brain-washing, mind control, autism etc) , an LGBTQ+ character becoming a main protagonist is where a lot of readers are declaring to leave the series for good? If people are THAT touchy about gay characters they all should`ve ditched the series back at book 6!
Tui writes such believable and complex characters, that I always find myself relating to them, even if on a surface level we would seem so incompatible. I even fell in love with baby Bumblebee, who felt like a character and not a mere plot device, despite me not being a baby-person in real life.
It was nice to see some familiar dragons from the Pyrrhia continent, however brief and the new faces are all amazing characters. The POV character Sundew is a very prickly dragon, but she is just as deep and interesting as every other POV in previous books, and the supporting cast are more grounded and reasonable to balance her grumpiness.
The villain reveal was truly terrifying and is taking the series into a very interesting direction. The themes of working together despite differences and troubled history will be coming to a head soon, as it looks like every dragon will have to put aside prejudice to overcome a great threat in the next books.
I hope the same message can get through to the other readers who have left negative reviews for intolerant reasons, despite otherwise enjoying the book.
I highly recommend this book and this series.
PS: I don't understand why people dislike this book just beacause Sundew is lesbian
So after this is out: i think this is a great book and i want to read more ;)
I never post reviews but these ratings are being sabotaged by a buncha 'phobes and i had to do my part to try and fix it.
Addressing the complaints about it being too "mushy" or the book focusing too much on the relationship too much, just take a moment to think about it. Sundew has not had a great life so far, her parents are certainly not the best, she grew up in a hostile environment, she has only known fighting and conflict, the most common emotion she was raised with was anger. Then she meets willow the one dragon who has made her feel something new, happiness. So yes Sundew will think about willow as much as she possible can, she will enjoy every moment she can with her one special dragon that makes her actually feel loved. That isn't too focused on their relationship, it may be a bit mushy, but it's extremely accurate to what would actually happen in those circumstances.
