    1. I was so excited to receive this book! A new set of dragonets and a new set of stories! Although I am glad that the original dragonets are still going to play a role in the series, I am also glad that they look like they're going to be background players and give the new characters room for growth and shining. I liked the extremely introspective character of Moon. I think her difference in personality shows Sutherland's ability to write very well as her characters have many differences but also [...]

    2. This was such a great continuation of the world. We meet a new group of dragons that we'll be following for the next however many books. This book is about Moonwatcher "Moon" who is a dragon that was raised away from her tribe, so she doesn't really fit in with any group. She also can read other dragons' minds which definitely causes some problems. As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience with this one, and I love how this world is progressing. I thought the problems in this book cou [...]

    3. Just in case you haven't kept up with this series by one of the authors of the Warriors (Erin Hunter) series, book #6 (Moon Rising) came out 6 January 2015, and book #7 (Winter Turning) comes out in June. I feel like I should do a textual analysis between these and Anne McCaffrey, but both series make me want to cry. I have a few students who adore them, so they'll circulate steadily but last a long time, but they are not my favorite, and any series that goes much over five books starts to irrit [...]

    4. I don't normally write reviews for the children's books I read because I, uh, I read a lot of children's books and then everyone would read the reviews and know how many I read. But this one is so good. Seriously so good. I want to give it six stars but that's not possible. Gist of the thing: it's a few years after the first five Wings of Fire books, and our favorite characters from that series are teachers now at a school that attempts to mend the fear and hatred among the dragon tribes caused [...]

    5. Actual Rating: 4.7Wow wow wow! So much fun! My favorite in the series by far.I found this to be rather delightful! I connected with Moon very early on. She's quite a likable character, which made this a great book.I loved the new cast! Qibli, Winter, Kinkajou, and Moon were just wonderful. Not that I didn't like the original characters, but these were so much more fun!This was such an easy read. I was immediately sucked into the school environment and really enjoyed meeting the new characters an [...]

    6. This book was awesome! I really enjoyed the first five books in the Wings of Fire series and I was so not let down with this sixth book which starts on a whole new path with new dragons and new adventures, intrigues, and suspense! I can't wait until the next book comes out!

    7. The previous dragonets of destiny have stopped the war, and have decided to build an academy to teach younger dragons to get along better than their ancestors, so another war like that won't happen again. The story is in the point of view of Moonwatcher, or Moon, for short. Moon is a very special nightwing, and not just because she was raised in the forest away from the other nightwings. Moon can read minds. Not only that, but she can see the future, at least a little bit. No nightwing has had t [...]

    8. I was so skeptical when I first heard about this book; the dragonets of prophecy would no longer be the main characters and it was going to take place at an academy, making me immediately think of a Hogwarts kind of thing.Of course I should realize by now to always trust the author, she's pulled through every time so far, especially on my worries about the academy. Jade Mountain Academy, while it is a school, focuses more on healing after the war than what you'd expect from a typical learning fa [...]

    9. A fantastic beginning to the next arc of the Wings of Fire story. I loved all of the characters (especially Qibli and the title character Moon) and was not disappointed with the many cameos by the main characters of the first five books (their character direction was excellent). The plot was intriguing and provided a good setup for the next few books (I assume it will probably be another five). Some SPOILERS to follow.The mind-reading ability of the main character, Moonwatcher, made for an inter [...]

    10. This was a fantastic new book in the Wings of Fire series!I was interested to see how the book would go now that the original prophecy is over and the Nightwings have been exposed as frauds. Or are they?In this book we not only see a brand new character, Moonwatcher, but through her we also learn more about the history of the Nightwings and how they receive and then lost their powers.Faces both old and new appear in this book to mixed results. While the idea of a school that brings all the tribe [...]

    11. This book was amazing. I absolutely love this series, and this one didn't let me down. Something Tui. T. Sutherland does with the books that I really appreciate is that she always leaves a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of each chapter, which makes me crave the next and it makes it hard to put down the book! I loved all the characters from the first ark, and I'm glad they all return in the new series. She also did a great job developing the characters. Moon starts off as a shy, quiet dragon wit [...]

    12. (spoilers) To my surprise, I enjoyed this book more than the original five. The prophecy dragonets were so well developed as they discovered their families and kingdoms that I assumed the next generation would be but a shadow of the suspense. Instead, integrating the school has presented challenges for healing, overcoming prejudice, and finding more "truth" in old history. I definitely feel sorry for Darkstalker My favorite "mind," though, is Qibli because he quickly analyzes the situation and p [...]

    13. Sooooo. With this, we've sort of entered the "Legend of Korra" part of the Wings of Fire series; while it features the original characters, the focus is on a new set of dragonets. (Frankly, I rather wish the new books had their own subdivision, kind of like the Warriors series.) And I won't lie: I don't like the new ones as much. The shy special powers girl who draws the fascination of the brooding damaged boy for no discernible reason I've had enough of that. But the side characters are decent [...]

    14. "Moon Rising",a book created by Tui T. Sutherland, is a satisfactory introduction to a new season of dragons. As Moon,a telepathic NightWing, starts to go to Jade Mountain Academy, disaster strikes in the first week.Only she can find the most dangerous dragon in the newfound Jade Mountain Academy. These characters are portrayed with a huge range of emotions,from obnoxiously happy to a dark evil,which give them the illusion of being real.All in all,this is a fine book to start of the new arc of T [...]

    15. I adored the first Wings of Fire series, and this spin-off has debuted just as marvelously as the original series. Sutherland is brilliant!

    16. Tui Sutherland's Wings of Fire books are absolutely excellent. I think at this point I can say they are my favorite children's series after Harry Potter. Complex, sophisticated, with a cast of dozens, intricate politics, and she doesn't shy from the scary bits. This is Game of Thrones if all the players were dragons (and hope was possible). My daughter and I love them equally. Book 6 introduces new directions and new problems. We took a little while to grok onto the new characters, but now we lo [...]

    17. For centuries, the NightWings have misled the other dragons about their mystical abilities. Recently, thanks to the dragonets of destiny, everybody now knows it's all a lie. But Moonwatcher is a NightWing who very much has the ability to read minds and see the future, abilities she keeps secret at her mother's request. As one of the new students at Jade Mountain Academy, she wants nothing more than to blend in and try to make a few friends. It isn't long, though, before her powers might be neede [...]

    18. Wonderful continuation to the story! My children and I love the "Wings of Fire" series. The characters are engaging, the story draws you in, and the lessons learned are valuable without being didactic. These are great books to read out loud. Ms. Sutherland writes in a way that is easy to read aloud. Can't wait for book #7!

    19. THE GOOD Moonwatcher and Kinkajou: I actually quite liked the way that these two got along. It was like mixing oil and water, but with it actually succeeding for once. Moonwatcher is an easy character to like - all her worries and self doubts that make her struggle with sharing secrets and making friends was relatable. She messed with with Kinkajou who just has such an open personality that - even though she was kept prisoner - I don’t think she can truly dislike anyone, not even the other Nig [...]

    20. This is the 6th book of the Wings of Fire Series. The book is from the point of view of a young Nightwing, named Moonwatcher. Moonwatcher is extraordinarily unique compared to the other nightwings. For one, her mother, Secretkeeper raised her in the Rainwing Rainforest instead of the Nightwing secret Volcano Fortress. And for another, Moonwatcher is the first nightwing in generations that actually has the ability to read minds and foresee possible futures. These gifts come to a shock to her moth [...]

    21. Moon is a night-wing and she was cursed by the moons. When she goes to jade mountain academy that the dragonets of destiny teach, she learns other dragons secrets. But only a couple she can't, when moon figures out that someone is stalking her mind, she freaks out, but the most weird things happen between them. She moves into her winglet feeling uncomfortable. Will she fit in? Will she get her secret discovered? Will she ever find her mother again? I want to give a big hug to the author who wrot [...]

    22. I LOVED this book because it connected VERY well with the last book in the series. I especially liked that Moon coul read minds and predict the future.

    23. This is a new set of dragons for follow and love. While it took me a bit to love them, but by the end I was sold.

    24. I definitely thought that this book wouldn't be anywhere near as good as the previous books because it seemed like there was such a good and such a definite end to the others. This one, however, takes place at the very beginning of an experiment dealing with the school that the dragonets of destiny have set up. I also didn't think I would like the main character of this book, but she turned out to have a very interesting personality and a strong, clear voice. It made it a lot easier to get into [...]

    25. This book wasn't one of my favorites in the series but mainly because of it's main character. I never exactly liked the more shy-like types of main characters because where's the fun in ready THAT book? Well, no matter who the main character is, all Wings of Fire books manage to give you the adventure, action, and etc. Sutherland definitely pulled it all off in this book but I still didn't really enjoy Moon (the main character). No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't do it. I'm sure that som [...]

    26. Omg. Omg. Omg.I absolutely fucking ADORE "Wings of Fire" it's probably one of my favorite middle grade book series. (Maybe one of my all time favorite series, but it's so hard to pick m because I love so many different series.) The writing, the characters, the world, the adventures! Just love love love! So I was extra, uber thrilled when I learned that the series was going to continue on after the conclusion of the dragonets of destiny/false prophecy story arch. So thrilled that It was being ext [...]

    27. I care SO DEEPLY about everyone in this school. Auuuuuugh. Slightly disappointed that it looks like book two (seven) won't be a school story? But I am still 100% on board with more time with this crew. NEXT BOOK. NEXT BOOK.

    28. Character review/analysis: I would love to review all seven characters in the main story, but because of lacking time I will review four I think are the most prominent: Moon, Winter, Qibli, and Darkstalker. Major spoilers.(view spoiler)[Moon: Moon, or Moonwatcher, is a Nightwing. At this point in time, everyone thinks Nightwings have lost or never had their powers of mind reading and foretelling the future; however, Moon secretly has these powers. She was hidden by her mother in the rain forest [...]

    29. This book starts a new storyline in the Wings of Fire series. It was a very good book in this series and I really enjoyed all of the new dragonets that we meet. My eight year old son continues to be a huge fan of this series and I have also started to enjoy the books quite a bit. The next book, Winter Turning, is scheduled to release in June 2015.The Dragonets of Prophecy have started a new school on Jade Mountain. Their goal is to get all the dragonets of the different tribes to co-exist and st [...]
