Wings of Fire: The Graphic Novel

I read this but because I haven’t read the Wings of Fire book series, i didn’t really get it. My cousin, Alexander, is a huge Wings of Fire fan so I asked him to read this. My aunt said he was super excited to do it. The illustrator is Mike Holmes and I do love his work!

Wings of Fire: The Graphic Novel Book One: The Dragonet Prophecy is about 5 dragonets and a prophecy.  The prophecy tells how to end the war that has lasted for twenty years.  The dragonets must choose one of three sandwing queens to rule the sandwing tribe. This book follows the five dragonets as they escape and attempt to find their homes and meet all the queens so they can know all their personalities in person and not just from stories and scrolls, because you never know when to trust a scroll.

In the novel Wings of Fire: The Dragonet Prophecy it says in the prologue what happens to the skywing egg and in the Wings of Fire graphic novel it shows them hatching.  Both tell you different parts of the story, so you should read them both.  Other than the prologue, the stories are the same.  The characters in the graphic novel don’t look like the characters on the cover of the original book.  The graphic novel has a nice story line.  The illustrations are very detailed and look even cooler than they did in my imagination for some of the dragons.

I think people who like dragons, fantasy and prophecies and escaping would like this book.  People who trust scroll could learn from this book series.

The prophecy….. “When the war has lasted 20 years… the dragonets will come.  When the land is soaked in blood and tears… the dragonets will come.  Find the seawing egg of deepest blue, wings of night shall come to you. The  largest egg in mountain high will give to you the wings of sky. For the wings of earth, search through the mud for an egg the color of dragon blood.  And hidden alone from the rival queens, the sandwing eggs awaits unseen.  Of three queens who blister and blaze and burn, two shall die and one shall learn if she bows to a fate that is stronger and higher, she’ll have the power of wings of fire.  Five eggs to hatch on brightest night, five dragons born to end the fight. Darkness will rise to bring the light.  The dragonets are coming…”
