Talons of Power
I read another Wings of Fire book. It is book nine, Talons of Power.
The main character is a Seawing dragon named Turtle. He has a special power. He is an animus dragon because he can make other dragons do what he wants to do.But he doesn’t tell anyone about his secret.
Darkstalker has returned and he wants to take over Pyrrhia. He uses magic and makes everyone like him. But Turtle is suspicious and doesn’t trust Darkstalker. He magics a stick so Darkstalker can’t see him
Who is Darkstalker? Darktalker is an ancient Nightwing who lived thousands of years ago. He was betrayed by his ex friend Fathom. Fathom was a Seawing dragon who trapped Darkstalker under the Mountain because he was too powerful and dangerous. He killed his own father, and other dragons. Darkstalker and Fathom were both animus dragons. Darkstalker is evil and hates Seawings because of Fathom. He wants to destroy Turtle and his sister because they are descendants of Fathom. Darkstalker enchants Anemone but Turtle gives up his hideing stick and gives it to her. Darkstalker thinks he is doing all the right things but he is becoming too dangerous for Pyrrhia.
I like the part when Turtle gave up hideing and when he gave his hideing stick to one of his sisters, Anemone. Because if he hides from everything, he will never be the hero he wanted to be. With the hiding stick Anemone could be invisible to Darkstalker. He would never be able to see Anemone anywhere in his future, like she doesn’t exist.
Another thing I like in Talons of power is when Turtle thought he could not do it his friends believed in him no matter what. They just trusted him and supported him well.
I think kids who like fantasy will like Talons of Power.
