Last week Caramel reviewed the graphic novel version of The Dragonet Prophesy (Book One of Wings of Fire) by Tui Sutherland (adapted by Barry Deutsch, art work by Mike Holmes, color by Maarta Laiho). This week he wanted to talk about the second graphic novel in the series: The Lost Heir. As always Sprinkles is taking notes and asking followup questions.
Sprinkles: So how do you want to start this review Caramel?
Caramel: This book is good if you like graphic novels and if you like dragons, too. All of the Wings of Fire series is great for bunnies who like dragons.
S: I can see that! You haven’t dropped this book since you picked it up. Can you tell me a bit about what happens in this book?
C: Let me see. First let me tell you the characters.
S: Aren’t they the same characters as in the first book?
C: Yes, many are the same, but there are some new ones. I think there are four new characters actually.
S: But in your first review you did not really tell us much about the characters. We only heard about Oasis, Blaze, Burn, and Blister. And the five types of dragons: SandWings, MudWings, SeaWings, NightWings, and RainWings. So you can tell us about the characters a bit this time. For example do you have a favorite character?
C: Riptide is probably my favorite of the new characters. He is the nicest. He is a SeaWing. SeaWing dragons can see in the dark and breathe under water. And some of their scales can glow in the dark. But we learned all that in the first book.
S: So what happens in this second book?
C: Tsunami is a SeaWing dragon who returns home. She’s apparently a lost princess.
S: How does Riptide come into the picture?
C: They are in the same tribe. And he is one of the patrol guards. He and Tsunami become friends.
S: So the back of the book says:
Tsunami can’t believe that she’s finally returning to the SeaWing Kingdom after spending her life under a mountain. She’s desperate to feel the water on her scales and to be reunited with her mother, Queen Coral. The queen welcomes her long-lost daughter with open wings, but a vicious assassin has been killing the heirs to the throne and Tsunami may be next.
S: This sounds scary!
C: Yeah. But don’t worry Sprinkles, things do work out alright in the end. She survives.
S: Ooo, we should not give away too much Caramel.
C: Aw, but I wanted to tell you all about it. The whole entire book!
S: Maybe after we are done with the review… For now let us think about what more to say that won’t give away too much.
C: Alright. Can I rate the book at the end? Like Marshmallow does?
S: Sure. Why not?
C: Yay! My rating for this book would be 100%.
S: Wow! So you like it so much that you think it is almost perfect!
C: It is perfect! In fact it’s more than perfect. Awesome super duper perfect!
S: Why though? Why do you like it so much?
C: I love dragons. And I like the characters, and the story. It’s awesome! And now I can say the last words!
S: Yes, Caramel. Go for it!
C: Stay tuned for more book bunnies adventures!
