A Great Finisher for the Wings of Fire Series

If you could sum up Darkness of Dragons in three words, what would they be?

Funny, clever, amazing

What was one of the most memorable moments of Darkness of Dragons?

There are to many to list.

What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

Shannon McManus’s does the voices perfectly. also, she has been their for the whole entire series instead of backing out in the middle.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I was worried it wouldn't be as good as the others, i was wrong if anything it was better.

A Fantastic End to the Second Arc.

This is a great book with a great reader. This series is a like a young adult Game of Thrones, but with a great moral on friendship and working together.

Great Ending Book

I was disappointed with some of the earlier books because of their short story feel. In this book there is none of that.

The characters have interesting interactions, are presented with complex situation and grow through these trials.

I am thrilled to give this book a five month in all categories. I love the narrator and will look for more books read by her and probably for more books by Tui, though I will always miss the complex world and dragons she brought to life in this series.

Perfectly Marvelous

This was almost overly happy, but satisfying nonetheless. Part of that satisfaction came from Qibli exacting some much-needed psychological takedown moves on the Main Antagonist here. I love it! Tui T Sutherland never ceases to amaze me with precisely she can make every bit of a character move and function.

About it being almost overly happy: It felt like a couple of heinous figures got a better ending than they deserved. But I guess we're past the arcs with Scarlet-like villains? And past any focus on revenge. And that's nice. That's why I've ultimately got to say that the happiness in here was satisfying. In particular, I'm a big fan of Winter's conclusions.

I did feel like these books were a little less focused than the first five. But they were shot through with even more wonderful things to consider, so I think that more than makes up for it.

And the narration, again, was fantastic. You all keep doing what you're doing and I'll keep listening! I hope there are more amazing things to come.

I would suggest... But...

I loved this series. I often go and listen to YA novels as a way to escape and cleanse the palet after reading a lot of heavy fantasy or sci-fi. This series was perfect in almost every way, but there are two things that somewhat bother me.

First, there are several instances where random things happen that are not explained very well. Suddenly there's some kind of ghost thing? When did that happen? oh right, there was one sentence about a book and a half ago.... so... more info plz? Stuff like that. This is a long YA series so you can't really blame the author for trying to wrap up lose ends like that. Its actually admirable that the author would do it, still feels a bit slap dash.

Second, the random inclusion of homosexuality in the last book in a sort of off handed way. While I don't really care, and author can do what the author wants to do. That being said, when you're writing for a young YA audience you have somewhat of a responsibility to ensure that you are not including things that the parents of your audience would perhaps find objectionable. And for those things that are in a bit of a grey area, or who some might be age sensitive too like homosexuality, its important to include that kind of info in the description. Now, in this book its not a big deal its literally like... a three sentence thing in the epilogue. That being said, in the rest of the IP the author does make this more of a focus with 7 primary characters being members of the LGBTQ community.

So just a bit of professional criticism there, but its NOT in any way a focus for the novel. I'm sure the author put it in as a way to show representation for young LGBTQ youth, an admirable goal. Again though, this is a bit of a grey area... if its not going to be important to the plot perhaps just don't include it. Just MO of course.
