Wings of Fire: The Lost Continent tells the story of Blue, a 6-year-old dragonet and his sister Luna. Like other silk wings, Luna has her metamorphic day. During the day, Blue and Luna have fun as they go to Luna’s favourite restaurants and areas until her metamorphosis begins, except she’s a SilkWing. SilkWings are taken away by the wasp queen to be used for fire, and thus, she is taken by hive soldiers, and her brother is chased after possessed HiveWings in case he may be a SilkWing too. He and his friend, Io, escape while Swordtail tries to fight the HiveWings, but he is defeated and taken to Misbehaver’s Way. Io and blue are forced to split up, leading to Blue meeting Cricket, a HiveWing who isn’t possessed like the other HiveWings. The two then work together to find the prison swordtail is being held in. Once they find Swordtail, they end up making a deal with a group of LeafWings. LeafWing Sundew then tags along with Cricket and Blue, and the three successfully save Luna, steal the Book of Clearsight, and escape the Hive Queen promising to come back and save the rest of the dragons under her rule. This book is phenomenal. It constantly uses great descriptive words, and it never fails to keep a reader engaged. I would rate this a 10/10.
