Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling series continues with a thrilling revelation - brand-new tribes of dragons!  

Some secrets are deadly. It's no secret that Sundew wants to destroy the HiveWings. It's her life's mission to exact revenge on the tribe that tried to wipe out the LeafWings and ripped every tree from the surface of Pantala. 

Every tree, that is, except the wild and dangerous Poison Jungle, where the surviving LeafWings have been hiding since the war. Hiding, plotting, and waiting for a dragon like Sundew, who is uniquely qualified to bring down the Hives. 

There are dark secrets in the jungle, though - some that Sundew is keeping, and some that she's only just beginning to discover. And now that a new war is upon them, Sundew and her friends must unearth the oldest secret in the jungle - even if what they find has the power to destroy them all.

An Honest Review From A 12-Year-Old Superfan

When I was in sixth grade, my teacher suggested this series. Being a major dragon lover, I started listening to The Dragonet Prophecy on Audible. Great StarClan, I fell in love with it after five minutes. I felt a deep connection with each character and I knew the names of all the dragonets of Destiny by chapter two. I loved everything about the series. Every character, every tribe, etc. I talked about Wings of Fire all the time and use the word "thrilling" to annoy my friends. It is just an amazing series.

But then I got to the epilogue of Darkness of Dragons. Kinkajou was gossiping with Turtle and I thought I heard that Anemone liked Tamarin. "What? Surely that can't be right." I had heard people at school talking about that sort of thing and, of course, I thought my favorite series of all time could do no wrong. So I just assumed that I had misheard and I kept on going.

But there was always that part of me that was scared to move forward. What if I hadn't misheard? What if there are more characters like that in future books? What if - oh, the horror - I'm not allowed to keep reading these books? I don't think I'll survive if Wings of Fire is taken out of my life. So I read every review and every description, not that I could change what would happen in the books just because I knew it was going to. I just wanted to be prepared, so I wasn't shocked if anything... occurred.

I scoured the reviews for The Lost Continent and The Hive Queen. Nothing. Then I finished The Hive Queen and read the reviews for The Poison Jungle. I kept being reviews like: Why did you ruin it with the Sundew-Willow relationship? and Why does everyone have a problem with the Sundew-Willow relationship? I was scared of this book. I started listening to it, and my fears were confirmed. Sundew: the protagonist of this book and a six-year-old female LeafWing and Willow: Some random female LeafWing are apparently dating???

I know everyone keeps saying things like "Why is everyone hating on this book because of that?" and "What's wrong with female dragons being together?" and "Stop being rude! They can't help it!" (They can.) I am not trying to be rude. I am just stating the facts. The facts are that this is wrong to put in a kids book, especially after the first twelve books (with the possible exception of the epilogue of book ten?) were clean and fun. We all thought that this one would be like that. But it's not.

The main thing I was worried about was: was the Sundew-Willow relationship just a misinterpreted friendship? Or was it something right in our faces that we can't ignore? I'll try not to spoil too much, but this is the gist of it:

• Sundew keeps ranting in her mind about "the dragon she loved but was not allowed to love". We don't know who that is. We just naturally assumed it was another LeafWing.
• She sneaks out to meet Willow, and Willow gives her a jade frog. Hm. A gesture of friendship? Sure. My friends give me things sometimes. For example, friendship bracelets.
• She says when she looks at Willow, her face feels "sparkly". Not sure what that means but ok...?
• She and Willow used to joke and call each other "light of my life". They could have been joking?
• Willow introduces her to Tsunami and Turtle as "my girlfriend". That's when it starts to get harder to ignore. But of course that could have actually meant they were girls who were friends? But I was probably just trying to tell myself that.
• Sundew confesses to Mandrake that she wants to marry Willow. And that is when I cannot candycoat this anymore.

Tui T. Sutherland, why did you have to throw this trash into a kids book? It was so unnecessary. This series was so perfect before. I respect you and your books, but this needs to stop. I beg you. I miss the old days when I was lying in my room, laughing at Starflight trash-talking Tsunami and Glory being surly to everyone, my heart melting when Peril and Clay have to fight in the arena, feeling triumphant when Glory used her venom on Queen Scarlet , being mad at Cattail when she shunned Clay, and feeling so happy when Clay met his siblings, and excited to move on to the next book. It's hard to feel that excitement again when I'm constantly worrying about this foxdung.

Moving on from that, it was a decent book, I guess. I like how the Pyrrhian and Pantalan dragons are starting to meet. But the storyline is a bit confusing and hard to follow, especially when I'm being distracted by female dragons constantly flirting. That's all I had to say. Thank you for reading, and please don't tell me I'm rude.

Frequent reader

I fell in love with this series on book two and have read every book at least three times. But I was afraid that the audible reader wouldn’t be any good. I was proven completely wrong as she has been the best reader I have heard yet. She is funny and has a good narritive while providing new and interesting voices for the characters. Truly ten stars

It is amazing😮🙃😮🙃😮🙃

I stayed up till 4 in the morning listening to it and I loved it so much I felt like I was going to explode with awe I love willow and sundew and how bumblebee absolutely loves sundew and the way she talks is so cute and funny I mean like who doesn't like bumblebee? I can't wait until 14 but the icewing queen is going a little over the top with paranoia I don't think 2 tribes running away from an evil plant is going to attack and make MORE beings mad. anyways keep it up sutherland😁

Loved it

This book is amazing. my heart melted when I heard bumblebee say “snudo”. I think that Sundo being gay added to the story and to whoever is saying that it “not appropriate” there are a lot more gay dragons so why are you saying it now! Plus that’s that’s offensive to gay people.

Fantastic book!

I loved this book! It was really great and the new characters were well developed.
Spoilers Ahead!
Fair warning: Sundew is in a lesbian relationship. If that bothers you, don’t buy this book.
A lot of the reviews on this book are conservative moms who are reviewing based on what their nine year old told them. They haven’t read any part of the book.
The relationship does not take a front seat in the plot. It is important, which is fair because the main character is Sundew and the relationship is important to her.
The plot wouldn’t have been changed if Willow had been a male dragon.
Sundew would have hid the relationship from her tribe no matter who Willow was.
All in all, a great book!

Great for anyone that isn't a bigot!

Conservative parents everywhere are crying because tui t Sutherland isn't a narrow minded bigot like them. Same sex relationships exist and they are not going anywhere. I applaud Tui T. Sutherland for including this in her books because all readers should be aloud to know, THERE IS NOTHING IMORAL ABOUT LOVEING SOMEONE THE SAME SEX AS YOU!!!

Enough with the love stories!

All I have to say is for children’s books, these have some pretty mature topics. The questions, especially around same sex relationships, that this story provokes in children, need to be introduced and discussed when parents see fit to address them. The children don’t need to be introduced to them in a book that after reading the first few 12, thought it would be safe. Yes there were multiple references to some of the same sex relationships between dragons in a couple of the other books, but this was straight in your face. No way to really avoid the questions here. Not going to purchase any more Tui T. Sutherland books again, that’s for sure. She can’t be trusted to simply keep it on an appropriate level for young minds.
