Staff Picks

Wings of Fire : the Dragonet Prophecy is the first book in a new series. It is action-packed and full of suspense. I loved how the main characters are dragons and it's a dragon-centric world - the humans are called "Scavengers" and are considered prey and aren't that important to the story. There are seven different tribes, or types of dragons - Skywings, Mudwings, Seawings, Nightwings, Icewings, Sandwings, and Rainwings. Each type of dragon has different physical characteristics and abilities and they typically do not interact with dragons outside of their own tribes.   The dragons, however, have been fighting a war for many years and there is a group, the Talons of Peace, that have foretold of five dragonets that will be born and stop the war when they are ten years old. I loved the personalities of each of the five dragonets. I cannot wait to finish reading the series.
