        Loved Turtle's bravery and his determination to protect his sister from a dragon who would happily kill him. So he hid himself as an animus.

            The dragons’ loyalty and courage is put to the test in this amazing ninth book from the bestselling Wings of Fire series! Gear up and jump into a world of dragons, adventure, and more! Turtle has a big secret. He is an animus, which means he has the ability to use magic and control objects. Sometimes, he wonders if his power is too much for him—because he’s not a hero. In fact, he hates attention and prefers to stay unnoticed by other dragons. But then, a large meteoroid of darkness crashes into his world...a dragon going by the name of Darkstalker, a two-thousand year old legend...who’s still alive, trapped below the earth. Turtle and his friends, Moonwatcher, Winter, and Qibli, must stop this stranger—before he destroys the whole world, and everything they know. As Darkstalker convinces more and more dragons to follow him, and as they fall under his enchantment, even Turtle’s friends are beginning to get tricked. And now, the dragons are in need of a hero—someone who can actually save the world from Darkstalker. Turtle doesn’t think he’s the right dragon for this...but he may have no choice. And he may have to use the most dangerous thing about him; his animus magic. Can he defeat Darkstalker with help from his friends? Read this book to find out!

                      Dragons are really exciting I think. I read someone's review (it was really pursuasive) and decided that it would be a great book to read. Has anyone read it who can give me a brief summary. Oh and please follow me.
