Clay didn’t think he was the right dragon for a Big Heroic Destiny. Oh, he wanted to be. He wanted to be the great MudWing savior of the dragon world, glorious and brave. But he wasn’t a natural-hatched hero.
In this first entry of the series Wings of Fire, five dragonets, or young dragons, have been brought together from five of the seven dragon tribes to fulfill an ancient prophecy and put an end to the generations of warfare amongst the dragons. The only problem is, the dragonets don’t enjoy their hidden home nor their less-than-nurturing captors. When one of the five is threatened with death for not fitting in according to the prophecy, the others band together to help their friend and to find out what the outside world is like. Can they save themselves and find their true homes beforesomeone destroys them? This adventure will appeal to dragon lovers and those who like fighting.
