A Great Finisher for the Wings of Fire Series

If you could sum up Darkness of Dragons in three words, what would they be?

Funny, clever, amazing

What was one of the most memorable moments of Darkness of Dragons?

There are to many to list.

What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

Shannon McManus’s does the voices perfectly. also, she has been their for the whole entire series instead of backing out in the middle.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I was worried it wouldn't be as good as the others, i was wrong if anything it was better.

A Fantastic End to the Second Arc.

This is a great book with a great reader. This series is a like a young adult Game of Thrones, but with a great moral on friendship and working together.

Great Ending Book

I was disappointed with some of the earlier books because of their short story feel. In this book there is none of that.

The characters have interesting interactions, are presented with complex situation and grow through these trials.

I am thrilled to give this book a five month in all categories. I love the narrator and will look for more books read by her and probably for more books by Tui, though I will always miss the complex world and dragons she brought to life in this series.

Perfectly Marvelous

This was almost overly happy, but satisfying nonetheless. Part of that satisfaction came from Qibli exacting some much-needed psychological takedown moves on the Main Antagonist here. I love it! Tui T Sutherland never ceases to amaze me with precisely she can make every bit of a character move and function.

About it being almost overly happy: It felt like a couple of heinous figures got a better ending than they deserved. But I guess we're past the arcs with Scarlet-like villains? And past any focus on revenge. And that's nice. That's why I've ultimately got to say that the happiness in here was satisfying. In particular, I'm a big fan of Winter's conclusions.

I did feel like these books were a little less focused than the first five. But they were shot through with even more wonderful things to consider, so I think that more than makes up for it.

And the narration, again, was fantastic. You all keep doing what you're doing and I'll keep listening! I hope there are more amazing things to come.

Entertaining

As a long time reader of this series since it started in 2012, I have a soft spot for any of its faults.
Although the plot is not terrible by any means, I do feel it was a bit messy compared to Tui's past Wings of Fire books- although it was entertaining, so it did do its job.

I reccommend this for readers who didn't mind this arc of the books so far. It wraps it up well enough to say it's finished.
