The Dark Secret (Wings of Fire) (Book #4)
The Dark Secret (Wings of Fire) (Book #4) by Tui T. Sutherland – I’ve been a fan of Tui T. Sutherland’s Wings of Fire series since I read book one, The Dark Secret, and have followed it religiously ever since.
With each new book, I was always surprised at how unpredictable Sutherland made her plot lines and character developments, especially when it came to how she continued to develop (or destroy) relationships between characters who had appeared to be united in previous books.
This series is one that you won’t want to miss. It takes you through a world filled with magic and dragons, but also highlights important moral issues and can serve as an interesting conversation starter for younger readers.
The fourth installment in Tui T. Sutherland’s New York Times bestselling series, Wings of Fire, comes to its stunning conclusion with The Dark Secret. Tigerstar is just a heartbeat away from destroying everything Dovewing holds dear, and nothing can stop him.
But when an unexpected allay comes forward—and a shocking secret is revealed—will it be enough to turn the tide in their favor? Find out in The Dark Secret! In book two: Leafpool’s Wish (Wings of Fire #5), Leafpool faces her biggest heartbreak yet when she loses her newborn kits. Now she must look to the past for answers—and find a way to save ThunderClan from destruction without destroying Brambleclaw as well.
This book had a lot of action, but it was not very exciting. The plot line was boring, and I felt like I already knew what was going to happen. It did get better by the end, but it took too long for it to get there. The one good thing that happened in this book is that all of my favorite characters got into a fight against Starflight.
The Dark Secret, is an amazing prequel to Wings of Fire. The story is about Moon and River (two older dragons) when they were still guards for queen Scarlet’s army. But one day, Scarlet ordered all dragons that weren’t already captured in her army to be killed!
The whole tribe, including Moon and River’s family, died defending themselves from Queen Scarlet’s armies; except for Ember(Moon and River’s sister). This book was very dramatic, but also had a lot of action in it as well. It made me feel sad that their family got killed by Queen Scarlet’s men. This book was also exciting because it had lots going on all at once.
The plot is good, the characters are well-developed, and there’s a fair bit of suspense and mystery. This series is definitely a page turner. The only criticism I have so far is that it could use some more editing; there were quite a few typos/misspellings/grammatical errors scattered throughout.
There also seemed to be some small plot holes or contradictions that popped up from time to time, which may or may not have been resolved in later books (since I’m just now starting book 5). Overall, though, I highly recommend these books for fans of action/adventure or fantasy novels.
