The Lost Continent (Wings of Fire, Book 11)

Book 11 of 13 in the Wings of Fire Series
For centuries there have been rumors of another continent on the dragons' planet -- another land far across the ocean, populated by tribes of dragons very different from those we know. But there's never been any evidence, and most dragons dismissed the rumors as fairy tales.

Until now.

Because it turns out the stories are true.

And the other tribes are coming.

    I really like how the story pace goes; not too fast, but not too slow either. This novel is filled with excitement and parts that will make you cling to the edge of your seat! This book could have better word choice, but overall it is a really good read!

      This book is about the mysterious lost continent. Although in this book it is not mysterious its just home. They have no idea of the dragons waiting for them until in the 13th book were they fly across the continent to them. In this very first story of the lost continent, blue's sister becomes a flamesilk and is captured while still in her cocoon and they chase blue. He jumps over the wall of a school to escape the queen of the Hivewings and meets Cricket who will help him throughout the story. He learns that the extinct Leafwings are still alive and are forced to steal the book of Clearsight which is the most sacred artifact and most guarded. The Leafwing Sundew then helps them rescue blue's sister Luna which is swept across to the distant kingdoms in a web of flamesilk.

        On the continent of Pyrrhia, there have been rumors for many years that there is a continent filled with dragons on the other side of the ocean. So when a Pyrrhian dragon named Clearsight sets off to find it, fantasies about this were created. That was almost two thousand years ago, and after Clearsight saved the continent from a storm, she was like a goddess to the lost continent, which is also known as Pantala. Now, a young dragon named Blue struggles to survive in a world that is conquered by one type of dragon alone. The HiveWings rule over everything—and that includes the SilkWings, who are his tribe. Blue is nervous about the day of his sister’s metamorphosis, which is when she will finally grow her wings...and maybe have to leave the whole family. But then, something totally unexpected and terrifying happens at the metamorphosis. He finds out that his sister is a flamesilk, which means she has the ability to spin thread that is like fire. Flamesilks are rare—and dangerous. Soon, Blue’s life is turned upside down. He meets a HiveWing named Cricket, who might help him rescue his sister from the place where the HiveWing queen took her. Blue and Cricket team up to help the flamesilks...to save their family, friends, and much more beyond from the queen’s evil tyranny. Can they do it? Read this book to find out!

          I usually dislike it when an author completely changes the characters in the middle of a series. It usually makes me really sad to suddenly have all brand new characters and not see the characters that I've grown so close to. That's how I felt when I started reading this book, but by the end, I realized how well the author tied the old characters from books 6-10. I love how books 6-10 were about completely different dragons and characters, but when you read the new books, some of the old characters are mentioned and even show up. Like how Clearsight was introduced in books 6-10 and showed up again in different situations and things like the Book of Clearsight. The author did a really good job of tying the two continents and what's happening and happened on each together. I would recommend this book and series to those around Middle School who love fantasy, magic, mythical creatures, and books.

            So wow, I'm really loving all the new things introduced in their next arc of the Wings of Fire series. This one takes place at the same time as the tenth book, and I definitely don't recommend trying to jump into the series here. You should definitely go back and read from the beginning. I also highly suggest you read the prequel, Darkstalker before you read this one. Now with that out of the way, I loved the new types of dragons brought into our journey through the world of Wings of Fire. They're all so cool and unique. I thought how we got the history of this Lost Continent was really well done, and you can see how over time the dynamics between the different types of dragons shifted and evolved along with the environment of the continent itself. I liked the characters a lot. Blue was sooo frustrating, but that's just how he is. I thought he went through a lot of growth in this physically and mentally which was awesome to see. Luna was a great sister character pushing Blue but not too hard. Cricket was a fun, eccentric character that asks all the questions I had while reading! I really liked all of the other characters as well, and Sundew actually made me laugh out loud as I was listening to the audiobook. There is some instalove in this which was kind of annoying, but I appreciated that the novel was self aware about it and kind of pokes fun of it using other characters. I'm pretty excited to see how the new dragonets will handle their situations going forward, because this new arc promises some awesome rebellion and personal growth. It was wonderful coming back to the series through fresh eyes. I certainly had fun exploring the world, as well as the new dragons, set up by the author. It was the best course of action to focus on three species of dragons in this new world as opposed to the six that were in the previous books, especially if we are going to bring the two continents together as hinted at in the end of the last book as well as the end of this book This series follows the wonderful pacing of the previous books, starting at a calm but curious beginning and immediately throwing you into the action. I certainly was never bored while reading the book. The characters were each unique in personality and I can tell that the author is trying to branch out their appearances to match their personalities I would say the only down side would be the protagonist. That doesn't seem like a good thing but I would say this critique is that the protagonist has a loose personality. We have the main things established for Blue: He follows rules, he doesn't want to fight and cause a scene, etc. but other than that we don't see until later how his personality falls in line with his belief (the author tries to make "following the rules" a personality but it isn't). I enjoyed seeing his character slowly coming into picture but I only wish that it was clear from the beginning so we could follow his growth better. This could also apply to the other characters but not as much. I would certainly recommend this book (I already have) because it is so much fun.
