"Ivy doesn't trust the Dragonslayer. He may be her father and the beloved ruler of Valor, but she knows he's hiding more than the treasure from the sand dragon he killed two decades ago. Leaf doesn't trust dragons. They're the reason his favorite sister, Wren, is dead, and now he'll do whatever it takes to slay even one. Wren doesn't trust anyone. She swore off humans after her village tried to sacrifice her to the dragons. She only has one friend, a small, wonderful mountain dragon named Sky, and they don't need anyone else. In a world of dragons, the humans who scramble around underfoot are easy to overlook. But Ivy, Leaf, and Wren will each cross paths with dragons in ways that could shape the destiny of both species. Is a new future possible for all of them . . . one in which humans can look to the skies with hope instead of fear?"--Publisher's description.

While I was initially hesitant about this novel- the series is about dragons, I don't care about the humans!- it actually really impressed me. The characters are all fantastic, the way they weave in and out of the first arc of Wings of Fire is fun to follow, and the implications that this story will echo forward into a future arc of the story is really exciting. We get to see how the killing of Queen Oasis not only triggered a decade long civil war among all of the dragon tribes, the legend of the Dragonslayer rocked the continent's human population as well. From the point of view of the dragons it's easy to dismiss the humans of Pyrrhia as largely unimportant, but their influence on the dragon's world is a lot more meaningful than the dragons realize, and the destinies of these peoples are more closely linked than either of them realize.

I am a huge fan of all wings of fire books, but personally this one is my favorite one in the series. It is a very interesting story and it is narrated from the human's perspective. This book gave me many feelings for the characters. I recommend this book for honestly anyone but people 10 years old and over, I think would enjoy it the most.

I enjoyed this book. Each of the characters spoke to me as if I could reach out and touch them. This book gave me an insight on how the human world entwines with the dragon world. It was truly a great, and detailed conflict, how one problem lead to another throughout the book. The way they solved the conflict through peace, not war. I recommend this book for any fantasy-lover.

This wasn't bad. If you read this, you should at least read The Dragonet Prophecy first. Kinda funny that it interwines storylines. I can agree with KatieSkarlette: Wings of Fire is special because it actually focused on dragons, not the Humans involved. It was still pretty cool, though. Another reason I like this is because Wren reminds me of my sister. I read this in two days, but I can agree that it DID lack something. Changal, what do you mean "second part"? There was another one? Cuz if there is, imma read that. Otherwise, I will wait like a hungry dog for the next one.

Not my favourite Tui Sutherland story. I feel that this lacked the something special that was in some of Sutherland's other books.

One of the things that made me love the Wings of Fire series in the first place was the fact that the characters were all dragons, without those pesky humans hogging the spotlight. Too often I'd see a book that was supposedly about dragons, but it was really more about the human who bonded with/saved/fought/rode the dragon. Wings of Fire was so refreshing in that regard. So when I heard this book was coming out and would star humans I wasn't that enthusiastic. I needn't have worried. I'm happy to report that Dragonslayer was a fantastic read that added a lot of depth to the world of WoF, and although I still prefer the dragons themselves, I look forward to the further adventures of these human characters, too.

Wings Of Fire is a book series about dragons and full of magic. But the latest installment, Dragonslayer was a bit different compared to all the other books. Mostly because it was from the views of humans for the first time in the series. The 3 main characters for this book are Wren, Leaf, and Ivy. Wren is the younger sister to Leaf, and was left for dead by her village. But with the help of her dragon friend Sky, she traveled the world. Leaf, devastated by the loss of his sister, began a hunt for revenge. Unaware that she lived, he trained to kill dragons from his older sister Rowan. And Ivy the daughter of the famous dragonslayer. Curious by thoughtful, she tries to learn more about dragon along with her friends Daffodil and Violet. These 3 varying perspectives help to paint the world they’ve known, in a whole different light. With fantastic description, these unlikely heroes will unearth mysteries that you change their lives. I really enjoyed reading this book. I’m a huge fan of the Wings Of Fire series, so this was a no brainer to read. I was super excited for this and I definitely was not disappointed. It was amazing to see the world of dragons through the eyes of humans. I would definitely read this again! 5/5 stars - Maade, SAPL Read it & Review Contributor
