Kids can relate to dragons

WINGS OF FIRE: The Dragonet Prophecy. By Tui T. Sutherland. For ages 8-12

Fans of the “Warriors” series should find “The Dragonet Prophecy” series equally entertaining.

Follow this diverse world of dragons as they try to avert war. The action is plentiful, as is the adventure. They always seem to go hand-in-hand. The dragons show all the traits of humans: selflessness, bravery, anger, rage and more.

Kids will be able to relate to the dragons and eagerly read their continuing tales as the series progresses.

What’s good: Interesting characters and plenty of adventure.

What’s bad: Dark, moody and possibly too violent for younger readers.
