Junior Review: Wings of Fire: Talons of Power

Prince Turtle of the Seawings has always been slower and more unnoticed than his many older and younger brothers. 

Turtle wanted to go to Jade mountain academy for various reasons but mostly he wanted to get away from his rough siblings. 

But when his world gets flipped upside down and inside out, his friends rely on him to save not just them but all of Jade mountains' students and teachers.

Turtle never thought of himself as a hero, but this is his second chance to become noticed. 

What will his mother think of him sneaking off? Will she even notice? It is one thing to be noticed by the whole tribe but being noticed by his mother would mean a lot to him. 

But will this endanger his major secret and his friends? Or will he finally be able to call himself a hero? And will his mother finally know his name and love him? 

Read this thrilling novel to find out the answers to not just your questions but also Turtle’s.

I love this series of books because it is perfect for my love of dragons. I also love the author Tui. T. Sutherland because she has not just made the Wings of Fire series but also because she has helped write the Warrior series by Erin Hunter which I also love. 

She also has a creative writing style that makes me feel like I am the dragon in the book. She has also made my crazed love for dragons stronger than ever.
