Something is coming to shake the earth
Something is coming to scorch the ground
Jade Mountain will fall beneath thunder and ice
Unless the lost city of night can be found.

Baker
& Taylor

Turtle the SeaWing dragon has long dreamed of being a hero, but when the companions inadvertantly free Darkstalker, the oldest and most powerful dragon, from the spell that has trapped him, the best he can come up with is a spell that prevents the ancient dragon from seeing him or hearing his thoughts--Darkstalker claims he has changed, but Turtle suspects that he still plans to control dragonkind.
When the war ends with the fulfillment of a false prophecy, the dragonets confront the rise of a dark evil while a young NightWing experiences what may be a first true prophecy in generations. Simultaneous eBook.

I started reading the series at Moon Rising and found out that it was book 6... I was like "WHAT?!?". then I started at the beginning and I've read almost the whole series twice already (except for the newest ones...). BEST BOOK SERIES EVER!!!

This book is great and it is really interesting. I like Turtle even thought he is super shy. Even thought he may not be the smartest of dragons, I still really like him.

Good book! Turtle is pretty nervous and we found out that he was the one who gave animus powers to anemone. Dark stalker captured turtle!!! He hates him and wants to kill him. In the 10 th book it's about quibli. Shocking comments and that book!

Turtle likes to stay unnoticed. He can’t let anyone down that way. That’s even allowed him to keep him animus powers a secret. But when the most powerful, vengeful dragon in the history of Pyrrhia reawakens for the first time in centuries, can Turtle be courageous enough to save his world… before it’s too late? In the eighth installment of his blockbuster series, Tui T. Sutherland manages to make you laugh even as he describes the idea of unlimited power from someone who uses it responsibly, and suggesting that it’s more of a curse than a gift. He explores new sides of his characters, sides readers would never expect to see. He makes it complex yet humorous. It’s a great book and a great addition to the series, but one has to wonder if dragons and super powers belong that well together.

This book is better than
"Darkness of Dragons" because for Darkstalker fan, they will become angry :D

Make it something really cool, like his insides exploding. Or his face falling of. I'm kidding! I'm a little bit kidding. I mean, insides exploding would be pretty cool right? Never mind.

"All right. You're not a dragon who likes compliments, I see. So I'll be blunt. I don't want to begin my reign as king of the NightWings by killing one of my subjects, especially one who could be such a valuable asset in rebuilding our tribe. Given the utter failure of all her schemes so far, and her relation to Starflight, my proposal is this: grant her your mercy and give her to me. Tomorrow I'll take her to the Night Kingdom with me, where she'll have no reason to bother you anymore. She can be my problem instead."

"Queen Glory doesn't usually allow that much fire in our forest. There are strict rules for the NightWings about how and when and how carefully to use it. She's definitely fallen for that baboon butt's act."

"OOOOOOOO, totally invisible to Darkstalker! That is an excellent spell. Another great idea, see? We'll be an awesome team. You can be the idea dragon and I can be the WHAM BAM SHOVE A PINEAPPLE UP HIS SNOUT dragon!"

"There's no need to be brave. I'm no monster. The history you've been fed is a pack of lies. They told you I was evil, that I was about to do terrible things, and that I was locked away to protect you. None of that is true, my fellow NightWings. I had a majestic future planned for our tribe. Power and security and wealth and peace for every dragon. No running, no hiding, no lying or starving or living in fear. But there were dragons who didn't trust my vision for us. They feared what our tribe could become. I was betrayed on the brink of changing everything. Dragons I thought I could trust trapped me underground, where I've been asleep against my will for the last two thousand years. Meanwhile, our tribe fell apart - lost its power, its home, its position in Pyrrhia. And history scrolls were written about me by deceitful dragons who feared my power."
- Darkstalker to NightWings ( page 122-123 )
