The New York Times and USA Today bestselling series soars to even greater heights with a new prophecy and five new dragonets ready to claim their destiny! Peril has been loyal to Queen Scarlet, who used her fatal firescales to kill countless dragons in the SkyWing arena. Now, Peril is loyal to Clay, the only dragonet who has ever been her friend. So, when Scarlet threatens Jade Mountain Academy, Peril sets off to find her former queen, stop her, and save the day, no matter what it takes. There's just one problem: a strangely persistent SeaWing, Turtle, insists on coming along, too. Turtle is worried about his friends, who left to search for Scarlet and haven't returned. Peril is worried that she might accidentally burn Turtle - or burn him on purpose, for being so annoying - and frustrated that she keeps saying and doing the wrong things. She can't escape her firescales, and she can't escape her reputation as the deadliest dragon in Pyrrhia. So when she's offered a chance to trade everything for a new life, Peril has to decide who she's really loyal to...and whether her own scales might actually be worth saving.… (mere)

Overall, much better than Winter Turning. Peril's viewpoint is extreme and child-like, but makes total sense. She didn't have a childhood, she never had a good role model, she was actively discouraged from developing perspective-taking and empathy skills. Her fixation on Clay made sense - not only from a romantic perspective (he's the first to show her kindness and friendship, the only one she can interact with physically), but also just with her psychological needs. She just doesn't have a frame of reference, an anchor, a foundation to make decisions - and thinking about things from Clay's perspective helps with that. The shift in her thinking over time, both as part of her development arc as well as when she regresses due to the enchantment by Chameleon, is really deftly done. I was so proud of my girl Peril!

Which made it even more of a tragedy that when she makes the arguably correct moral choice in destroying the scroll, that it turned out to be the key to releases Darkstalker. I anticipated him being the next Big Bad since Scarlet was finally dealt with, but poor Peril. It wasn't a huge shock - he already said in Moon Rising that he knew exactly what to say in order to get free. And that he did. now whether destroying the scroll sacrificed his powers or returned them to him, we shall see.

My only real issue is the animus dragons. They were creepy and awesome in the first part, and appropriately rare. In the second arc, there is an exponential increase both in the number of living animus dragons as well as enchanted artifacts. Since the enchantments can do anything and everything, it feels a little cheap and you wonder why they don't use a single enchantment to solve all the problems in the book. I know Sutherland promised there would be none in the upcoming 3rd arc because of the problems they bring, and I can't wait for that.

I completely forgot the next book features Turtle. Meh. I wanted to jump straight to Qibli. Now that's a dragon that's got his shit together. ( )

Peril sets out to kill Queen Scarlet in order to demonstrate her loyalty and trustworthiness to Clay. She returns to the Sky Kingdom, the place where she killed hundreds of prisoners of war for Queen Scarlet. But will Peril be able to kill Scarlet, her mentor and guardian? Is killing the only thing that Peril is good at, and is her destiny merely to be a killer? ( )

This is the eighth volume in the Wings of Fire series. This book follows the story of Peril, who has been in many of the previous books. This story was very well done. I have been reading these because my son reads them and have really started enjoying the books a lot.

Peril has left Queen Scarlet behind and is loyal to Clay now. Peril is trying to live with the other dragons at the Jade Mountain Academy, but it is tough when everything she touches bursts into flames. When Scarlet shows up threatening the Academy, Peril decides that she can probably do the most good by hunting down Scarlet and killing her once and for all. The only problem is Turtle, he is a SeaWing that is concerned about his friends and wants to go searching for both his friends and Scarlet with her.

Peril is probably the most emotionally damaged of all the dragonets. She was taught to kill at a very young age and she is very good at killing. Meeting Clay has taught her that there is good in her and she is good at things other than killing. She doesn’t have any friends and always says things the wrong way or at the wrong time. It was amazing to watch her grow throughout this story.

A lot happens in this story both to Peril and dragon society as a whole. The new prophecy still looms over them and Peril is worried about her part in this. As with previous books the Scavengers (humans) are there in the background...I always wonder if they will become a bigger part of the story at some point.

The book is well written, easy to read, and moves at a fast clip. It’s very engaging and the dragonets are easy to love. There is a lot in here about friendship and becoming the best you can be despite other people’s low expectations or perceptions of how you should be.

Overall an incredibly fun read and very well done. I really enjoyed hearing Peril’s story. There is a lot of action and humor in here and the book is a quick read. I would recommend to middle grade readers who enjoy books like The Warriors series. This series is very similar to that series, but I honestly think the Wings of Fire series is better written and a lot more fun to read. ( )

Escaping Peril, book 8 of The Wings Of Fire book series is about a dragon named Peril, who has fire scales, and wants to be a normal dragon, not a toy of Queen Scarlet of the SkyWings. Peril is part of the Jade Mountain Prophecy,
Beware of the darkness of dragons, beware of the stalker of dreams, beware the talons of power and fire, beware the one who is not what she seems.
Something is coming to shake the earth, something is coming to scorch the ground, Jade Mountain will fall beneath thunder and ice, unless the lost city of night can be found.
Peril meets her father, Chameleon, who has the most dangerous scroll in Pyrrhia, were the dragons live, and it is the key to unlock Darkstalker, the most dangerous dragon in Pyrrhia. I liked the book because it lets me see what's happening from Peril's point of view. Another reason I like this book is because Tui T. Sutherland makes sure that she always finishes telling something before she moves on to a different subject. One reason I did not like this book is because,in the other books, each chapter was "told" by a different dragon, unlike this book, where it was only "told" by Peril. I would recommend this book to people who like dragons and fantasy. ( )

No dragon was safe in the Sky Palace, but the ones in the most danger by far were the daughters of Queen Scarlet.

But trying to speak it with Clay made her feel like a dragon with no tongue and no ears. What did it mean when he brushed her wing with his as he went by in the tunnels? Did it mean "I love you as much as you love me even if our deep powerful feelings cannot be expressed aloud"? Or "don't worry, I see how nervous you are, but remember I'm always here to take care of you"? Or "it's a dark world, Peril, but you and I will stand in the fire and be safe, because we have each other"? Sometimes she worried that is just meant "Hey."
"I can trust Peril," Clay said, and in her shadows Peril felt her entire soul turn into a fireball. "She saved my life." "Plus she's in love with Clay," Starflight added. Peril wondered if anyone would notice if she flew over, ripped out his tongue, and vanished into the night sky forever.
"Was it our fault?" Qibli asked immediately. "She must be furious about us escaping with Hailstorm. What if we enraged her into coming out of hiding?" "That sounds extremely likely," Peril said. "I imagine just meeting you would enrage Queen Scarlet to the point of wanting to kill several dragons." "Ha ha!" Turtle said, as though Peril were kidding, which she clearly was not.
Peril shivered. Parties for executions, parties for thrillingly bloody arena days, parties for Scarlet's hatching day or Burn's visits that featured all kinds of dragon-killing entertainment. The Sky Kingdom probably hadn't seen a party in twenty years that didn't revolve around Scarlet's gladiator fetish.
A dragon suddenly came galloping into the river beside her and she jumped back, hissing at him, before she recognized Turtle. "You," he said, shaking his head, "are without question the least stealthy dragon in all of Pyrrhia."
