Editorial Reviews

Narrator Shannon McManus keeps up a thrilling pace with her performance of this series about seven warring dragon tribes locked in an ancient battle over a lost treasure. The secret society Talons of Peace plans to end the fighting by raising five dragonets from different tribes to fulfill a prophecy of peace. However, the dragonets leave to look for their original home and are captured by the SkyWing queen. McManus avoids getting in the book's way with unnecessary frills and goes straight to the action, detailing the dragonets' attempts to escape with breathless excitement.

Publisher's Summary

A thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation!

The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy - a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice.

Five dragonets are collected to fulfill the prophecy, raised in a hidden cave and enlisted, against their will, to end the terrible war. But not every dragonet wants a destiny. And when the select five escape their underground captors to look for their original homes, what has been unleashed on the dragon world may be far more than the revolutionary planners intended.

Wonderful series! Just not the strongest start.

A wonderful book, definitely worth a purchase! Only thing, the performance isn't as strong as later entires. It definitely feels like the narrator is still finding their voice with this entry.

Not awful by any means! Just that the book to follow have a much better performance. This series is wonderful, and I'd hope this slightly weaker entry won't put off listeners from some stellar books to come.

Amazing, the best series I've ever read.

I loved all the books but the fifth book is the best in my opinion. The narrator was good I feel like she brought out a depth to the series that the books just couldn't get.

Great Story, Wrong Narrator?

Adult listening with 6y/o here. The Story is great and very fun to listen to. The narrator in this audio book has a very “Disney” sort of approach, which some may find nice, but we found distracting. Some of the valley girl vocal fry fades off as the book continues, however the fairy princess voice conflicts with a lot of the intense moments the author created. Great content, but wish we had decided to read the book aloud instead.

Interesting world building and charcters

I'm a 23 year old gal, just looking for a interesting, light hearted fantasy story, and I certainly found it with this one. This is the kind of book I wish I had as a kid, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it out now.
The story isn't all fun and games, it has serious and real moments, but it also knows when to not take itself too seriously. The narrator gives life to these characters, and the bonds between them is enjoyable to watch grow. I can't wait to see where the series will take them.
I was not over fond of the entire book being written from Clay's POV, and although the authors note at the end helped to clear up the intentionality of the decision, I still feel it subtracts from the bonds we as the reader are supposed to make with the characters in the first few chapters...
The story isn't the most original, but there was a lot of care and forthought that went into the world building and characters, which I can appreciate. 🙂
Anyway, I enjoyed it, go push the "add to cart" button. ^

A must read!

As someone who reads a lot of fantasy novels I'm always looking for an author who can break the mold in new and unique ways. The Dragonet Prophecy does an amazing job of telling a fascinating story of a world ruled by dragons where humans are small annoyances and a long and bloody war leaves the land scarred. All of the characters in this story are constructed very well and have different views and insights on the world that are neatly intertwined. The reader is amazing at capturing these characters and the adventure had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! If you like dragons, fantasy, or just a good book in general this is definitely a book you need to read!
