For Kari, who would totally ride a dragon (and who saved this book!)
This special edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling Wings of Fire series soars back in time to give readers a glimpse of Pyrrhia through new eyes.
In the shadow of wings . . . humans fight for survival.
Leaf doesn't trust dragons. They're the reason his favorite sister, Wren, is dead, and now he'll do whatever it takes to slay even one.
Wren doesn't trust anyone. She swore off humans after her village tried to sacrifice her to the dragons. She only has one friend, a small, wonderful mountain dragon named Sky, and they don't need anyone else.
In a world of dragons, the humans who scramble around underfoot are easy to overlook. But Ivy, Leaf, and Wren will each cross paths with dragons in ways that could shape the destiny of both species. Is a new future possible for all of them . . . one in which humans can look to the skies with hope instead of fear?
Quote on the back
This was a pretty terrible plan, saving a baby dragon who would probably eat her just as soon as it was big enough. But Wren had a feeling someone had decided to toss aside this baby dragon, exactly the way her parents and her whole stupid village had thrown her away.
People are awful and untrustworthy and mean, so I'm going to make friends with a dragon instead.
"We don't need anybody else, right, little dragon?" Wren said, stroking one of its tiny ears. "If they don't want us, we don't care. We can look after each other, can't we?"
Twenty years ago, Stone and Rose come along with Heath in secret to help him complete his 'nearly impossible' and 'decidedly stupid' quest to become wealthy and powerful by stealing Queen Oasis's treasure. Stone and Heath wait outside for Rose, who went in a second time to get more treasure. Stone talks to Heath about how treasure won't make him powerful, which Heath disagrees with. Rose climbs back out of the palace, along with the treasure, and the trio begins to sneak off. However, before they get very far, Queen Oasis catches up with them. They fight her, and Heath gets hit with a burst of fire from Oasis. Stone eventually kills Oasis and wins the fight by stabbing her in the eye with his spear. Heath then cuts off Oasis's tail barb as proof of her death. Stone notices that Rose has gone missing but Heath tells him that they have to run away because more SandWings are coming their way. They take the treasure and the barb back to their village, but Stone continues to worry about Rose.
Wren, after having recently turned seven, is unknowingly prepared for sacrifice by the dragonmancers by her parents. She then finds out what they planned to do with her once she is taken through the forest to a river near Talisman. Wren then attacks the dragonmancers, but they still managed to tie her up. Then they leave her at a giant stone slab overlooking the river. But she was able to yank off the rope they tie her up with. She thinks back to what happened during the time before her attempted sacrifice, and back to all of the times, the people in Talisman did her wrong. Eventually, she comes across Sky for the first time, who is tangled in a bush and close to death. Wren eventually helps him out of pity and then talks to Sky both to reassure him that he is safe, and to help herself calm down. As they are talking, a rust-colored dragon with yellow eyes and a recent burn on its cheek flies by, and Wren presumes it is hunting. Wren hides herself and Sky from the unknown dragon (Kestrel), which Sky particularly seems to be afraid of. Once the dragon goes away, Wren comes out of hiding with Sky. Wren talks to Sky again and eventually gives him his name. They bond, and Wren thinks back to her encounters with humanity, and how she isn't scared since Sky, who is a dragon, is on her side, while everyone else isn't safe from them if they work together.
The perspective changes to Leaf's in the next chapter, taking place after the same time around Wren's disappearance/banishment. Leaf argues with his parents about whether or not the dragonmancers really are good as they couldn't save Wren. His older sister Rowan, is also in the room and mentions what she heard about The Dragonslayer from her friend Grove. Leaf's parents start to argue with Rowan that the Dragonslayer is just a story that 'brainless' families talk about. She tells Leaf about what the Dragonslayer did, and then Leaf wants to become a dragonslayer himself, but his parents strongly disapprove of the idea.
The next chapter is from the perspective of Ivy. When Ivy was small, she asked her mother, why her dad, Heath seemed famous. Her mother responds and says that her dad is famous. Then she asks if her dad was famous because he 'Dragonstared'. Then she asked him why Uncle Stone is yelling at the Dragonslayer for running away from the dragons and her mother told her she will tell her when she is older. Whenever Ivy asked other girls to have a sleepover with her, they reject saying that the tail could grow back into another dragon, or somebody would sleepwalk into the barb, though everyone invites her to their sleepovers. She then asks her mum whether or not she has seen the treasure. Ivy then becomes suspicious of whether or not her father's story is true or not when she was six years old. Her friends, Violet and Daffodil, asked her to join their secret club, The Truth Seekers.
Wren and Sky start to learn each others' language and talk to each other briefly in both languages. The first word Wren learned in dragon was snail since he was obsessed with them. Sky is Peril's twin, with too little fire. This makes him unable to breathe fire. Because Peril sucked his fire, this is probably why his scales are so pale. In this chapter they see the dragonets of destiny (Clay, Tsunami, Glory, Starflight and Sunny) playing with each other in their mountain hideout. Sky seems sad so Wren asks him if he wants to go with other dragons. To this, he says that he would rather be with Wren. Later, when looking back, Wren realized that he was sad because he couldn't breathe fire.
Leaf discovers that his second favorite sister is Rowan. Rowan helps Leaf try to become a Dragonslayer by helping him train. Both of them start to speculate how many types of dragons there are. Rowan said there are around six types of dragons known.
Ivy's mother tries to make an excuse to Violet and Daffodil that Ivy still had homework but Ivy told her mother that she was free now. She was surprised that the Truth Seekers had survived this long. Ivy starts getting better at drawing different dragons. Ivy also states that she wanted to become a Wingwatcher. Daffodil and Violet talk about the dragon's palace nearby. Ivy and her friends do a 'Truth Seekers mission' with Ivy going outside for the first time in her life. Ivy made an excuse to the Wingwatcher, Foxglove, that she was delivering a super important present to her father, which was a potato. When she went outside she described the sky to smell like apples and grass and it was noisy. She also described saying that there was light everywhere. Suddenly a dragon which was black (perceived to be a NightWing) came down roaring. Some time had passed and Foxglove and Ivy went back home.
Wren finds a sheltered valley and thinks they would be safe there for a while. She wants to go to the Indestructible City to find new clothes, a map, and some books, and recommended for Sky to practice flying for a bit. When Wren finally convinced Sky that it wasn't safe for him to go to the Indestructible City, she tried to see if she could get in. After a while of spying, Wren went to the base of the cliff and was then told that there was no space for refugees and the Invincible Lord will only admit one family consisting of no more than six people if they bring the Dragonslayer to him, and was then told that the Invincible Lord wants to make an alliance with him, to save the humans from the dragons. A tall woman wanted to trade for some medicine for her baby and was told she had a one day pass and had to leave the baby behind so they would know she would come back. She then met Undauntable with his pet cat named Dragon, (which she then refused to call dragon) and wanted to trade silver for one of Sky's scales that he had shed. Wren then traded the silver for food, clothes, and Undauntable's silver earring. When Wren was asked where she found it, she said she found it in a swamp which was a lie so that Undauntable couldn't find Sky. She said she might get him another scale if she can find any, and went to the river until the Indestructible City was out of sight and went to Sky.
Leaf thinks about his parents who are hoping he would become a dragonmancer. He also thought about why no one noticed that he was getting stronger, faster, and more agile. Leaf gets assigned to Master Trout. Master Trout doesn't like that he got a new apprentice. Leaf thinks that Master Trout should have been born a tarantula. Cranberry, Mushroom, and Thyme are introduced.
Ivy becomes an official Wingwatcher. They go to the Wingwatcher welcome ceremony and see Squirrel and Commander Brook. They chat for a while, talking about conspiracies, and then The Dragonslayer came. Later, Foxglove advises Ivy not to listen to Chipmunk, who made sure all his outdoor missions were at night and hardly ever saw a dragon. At the end of the chapter, Ivy thought about the Wingwatcher conspiracy and wonders if someone actually is planning a revolution against her father.
Wren never went into buildings, and never stayed in a settlement for more than a night. Once they reached the top of the continent, Wren and Sky went south and down to the coast. There Wren saw a few sea dragons, and Sky suddenly exclaimed that Wren could ride on him. This ended badly, however, as Sky got distracted. A year later, Sky was able to not get distracted and fly long distances with Wren on his back. Once Undauntable invited Wren to the Indestructible City. Wren didn't want to. Wren bought a few books, and told Undauntable was reasonably interesting and was the second most interesting friend she has (not to mention she only has two friends, therefore making Undauntable last). But it then backfired, because two years later, he asked her to marry him.
Leaf shares his blueprint copy with his friends. Grove told Leaf to go back to the dragonmancers after a while and told him that they'll decide what to do. Two days later, Leaf finds Rowan in the garden and tells him his map copy was gone, and so was Mushroom. Crow and Gorge appear, as they were eavesdropping on them, and told them to tell the truth. The dragonmancers told Tadpole to get Grove for them, just in case. Rowan told Leaf that they needed to get to Mushroom. When they got back to the schoolhouse, Cranberry and Thyme said that they saw Grove being taken away. Rowan told them that Mushroom was trying to steal the dragon's treasure and they needed to get to him and get back treasure for them or they were going to sacrifice Grove. They traveled north towards the dragon palace and tried to see if there was anything that might be Mushroom. They found many campfires and a discarded fishing net, but none of them were new enough to be Mushroom's. On the fourth day, they finally found the dragon palace. It was enormous. And swarming with dragons. Dragons were everywhere. Rowan asked if there was any way in, and Leaf tried to remember where the entrances were. Suddenly, Leaf saw something and immediately grabbed Rowan's arms, and pointed at a tiny moving figure, which was Mushroom. The trio then decides to go to the Sky Palace to save Mushroom.
Chapter 12 starts with Foxglove reminding Ivy, Daffodil, and Violet to watch the sky, not to move, and never leave the trees on their own. They argue a bit about the secrets they are trying to discover, and Ivy spots movement. A few seconds later and an ice dragon comes flying down in a really strange way. They go to investigate and find out that Stone was riding the dragon. He used a necklace of invisibility that was found in the SandWing treasury when they killed Queen Oasis. They argue with him about his secrecy, and eventually, Rose is mentioned, who Ivy asks about.
Chapter 13's PoV changes to Wren, and she meets Undauntable. She gives him a scale and they talk before Undauntable proposes to her. Wren declines, saying that she has a family and is not interested in getting married or living in a city. They talk a bit more, until a dragon, later confirmed as General Sandstorm, flies over. He loudly taunts the City as all of the humans get to safety, and eventually flies away. Wren tells Undauntable that the dragon wasn't attacking, and he questions her on her knowledge about dragons. She leaves and meets up with Sky again, who is happy to see her, and says he has something to show her. They take off and Sky brings her to one of the dragon cities, wanting to explore it. They decide that he will go tomorrow.
Leaf, Cranberry, and Thyme depart for the Sky Palace to save Mushroom, and Leaf briefly notices a black dragon flying away from the mountains. As they approach the castle, they become nervous from the apparently swarming dragons, but find Mushroom running in their direction, sword and treasure in hand. A crimson mountain dragon catches up with them, and Leaf attempts to kill it by stabbing it with his sword, but it bounces off of its scales. Many other mountain dragons catch up and surround them, one wearing a crown and chain mail, and Mushroom manages to escape, with the queen chasing after him. The remaining mountain dragons capture Leaf, Cranberry, and Thyme, and Leaf passes out due to lack of oxygen.
Ivy, Violet, and Daffodil go to Stone's cave to talk about Rose. Stone tells them that Rose was Ivy's aunt who got left behind when they stole Queen Oasis's treasure, and how the act caused the destruction of the old village and the "wrath" of dragons on scavengers. Ivy, Violet, and Daffodil then try to think of a way to calm down the dragons and come up with a plan to return the stolen treasure to the sand dragons to calm them down.
Sky explores the dragon city with Wren, and Sky enjoys the company of dragons while Wren stays hidden near him. Wren tells Sky not to speak Human and to not act weird in front of any dragons to avoid suspicion and then lets him go alone into the city and then return. Wren waits for him, but by sundown, Sky doesn't return. Wren, anxious for Sky's safety, decides to go into the dragon city to look for him.
Leaf becomes conscious again inside of a pit filled with various animals, including scavengers Rowan, Cranberry, Thyme, Cardinal, Arbutus, and one unnamed scavenger. They ask Cardinal where they are and what is happening. Cardinal explains that they are in a food storage pit in the kitchens and that the mountain dragon queen likes to watch arena fights, so they may be taken there instead of being eaten. Leaf then talks to Rowan about why he couldn't kill the mountain dragon with his sword, but to no avail. Eventually, a mountain dragon comes into the storage pit and carries out Thyme, while another dragon snatches Leaf, carrying him away with Thyme.
Ivy and her friends try to find out where the Dragonslayer's treasure is. By talking to merchants, Violet discovers he doesn't pay for items. However, he does repay the merchants with favors, such as spreading the word about their shop or upgrading the to a larger cave. Meanwhile, Daffodil spoke to her grandmother, Valor's oldest resident, which didn't go very well. She criticized her granddaughter's clothing and said the only time she'd seen the treasure was when he first returned with it, right before the dragons attacked. She was then evacuated by her daughter, Daffodil's Aunt Petal, who was her favorite child (which she said in front of one of her other daughters, Daffodil's mother.) Daffodil couldn't get her back to the topic of treasure and compared Petal and Daisy in a way that suggests she hasn't met her aunt, so Petal is likely deceased. While her friends spoke to those who might have seen the treasure, Ivy searched her home thoroughly, which felt odd to her. The girls met in Violet's cave and wondered where the treasure could be if it wasn't in the Dragonslayer's home. Ivy realized the old village would be the perfect place and would explain why he'd banned going there. They tried to think of a way to get there when it wasn't allowed, and they didn't know where it was. Ivy suggested going by herself, but Violet and Daffodil disagreed, so instead they convinced Foxglove and Squirrel to help. Ivy finds out the Wingwatchers have a system so they can visit the old village without being caught. They find the village to be scorched to the ground and discover the banished Wingwatchers are there. Foxglove swears them to secrecy. Pine and Azalea have been searching the ruins for the treasure but not found it. Ivy uses what she knows about before her father became the Dragonslayer to figure out which house to search. They find a dreamvisitor in the chimney, though they don't know what it is, but the Dragonslayer has moved the rest of the treasure.
Wren waits until night to enter the city. Some dragons were still up, but most were sleeping. She hears two dragons arguing. She only understands part of what they say. She continued to search for Sky. She has to keep hiding from dragons, which slows her down. She finds a dragon pet store and realizes Sky set a couple of animals free. She found a blood trail but found out it wasn't Sky's after eavesdropping on a couple of dragons. Wren learns sand dragon soldiers took Sky and planned to bring him to the sand queen's palace. She climbed a tower and found a map that was useless to her, as she didn't read Dragon. From the tower, she sees the soldier's encampment and goes to it. Sky is there, locked up. General Sandstorm, who she recognizes because she saw him attack the Indestructable City, announces to his soldiers that they're going to fight IceWings before returning to the Kingdom of Sand before the army flies away.
Leaf is taken out of the pit of animals, though Rowan tries to prevent it. He sees a kitchen full of frantic dragons, who look like they're preparing for a feast but are afraid of what happens to them if they mess up. He notices the dragons show emotions, similar to humans. There are "approximately eight hundred zillion dragons" who want to eat him. Also, there's treasure everywhere, and he realizes it might have been possible to steal some after all. Leaf is dumped in the middle of the party with other terrified animals and quickly has to avoid being eaten. He sees a small gold dragon in a giant birdcage, hanging over the party, who looks miserable. He hears music, which confuses him, and upsets the dragons. He finds Thyme and suggests he hide under the tables where he won't be seen. Leaf began to climb away from the party, imagining Wren talking to him. He took a break and fell asleep on a ledge, waking up to the sound of dragon screams. He sees them all panicking but doesn't know why. He sees Clay and Tsunami fly past. Clay turns around and grabs him.
Ivy, Daffodil, and Violet show Stone the sapphire. He says Heath didn't like it because it gave him nightmares about the dragons, and was likely the only thing that made him feel guilty. Suddenly, the Dragonslayer enters, and Ivy hides the gem under blankets. Foxglove lies and says they were caught out in the rain and they came to visit Stone, as he was close by. He tells them they shouldn't leave the caves. Ivy notices her father is acting strangely. He leaves the house and tells both Ivy and her mother not to leave. Ivy realizes her mother doesn't give Heath "hero-worship eyes" anymore. Her mother tells her the lord of the Indestructible City wants Heath to work on them. Ivy knows her father never will, as he enjoys being lord too much, and is secretly a coward. Ivy convinces her mother to go to the meeting even though her father told her not to. Daffodil and Violet arrive and announce they'll search the place even though Ivy already has. Daffodil asks how she lives with the tail barb, and Ivy saws she avoids it. They realize she also avoided it while searching. They discovered the pedestal was secretly a safe, with a four-letter combination. The girls guess every four-letter word they can think of relating to dragons and treasure, but none of them work. Lark, Rose, and Ivy's also don't work. They try the word mine, and it does open. They don't touch the treasure, instead, shutting the safe again until they work out their plan.
The mud dragon holding Leaf had a kind face and held him gently, then set him down on the top of the cliff he was climbing, shocking and confusing Leaf. He enters the palace to find Rowan and sees the mountain dragon queen, injured and alone in her gold-filled throne room. Several sand dragons carry her away. He took a thread from a sack made by dragons to use as a rope and help the others escape when a dark red dragonet sees him. The baby dragon gets the attention of an adult dragon, who gives the key to the food pit to Leaf, allowing him to help Rowan and the others escape. Thyme has ended up back with them. Cranberry says she and Rowan had to fight a blue dragon and a black dragon in the arena. Rowan confesses to Leaf that Wren was sacrificed. He's angry at her for lying and says he won't return to Talisman. He decides he's going to find the Dragonslayer.
Wren tries following the army to get to Sky, which is going poorly as she has to walk very slowly on the ground, while they fly overhead. She follows the to the Ice Kingdom, but by the time she reaches it they're already flying back. She gets to the dragon city, but they're already flying back to the palace. She steals from the dragons, feeling like a mouse, taking crumbs and hiding. She couldn't find a map to the sand dragon's palace, or of their kingdom. She wonders if she can convince a dragon to take her to the palace. She stole what was probably a dagger to a dragon, but was a large sword to her. She looked for a solitary dragon and found one, a black dragon reading a scroll Deathbringer and avoiding attention. A sand dragon arrives and brings him another scroll, saying it's his new assignment. Wren, watching him read his orders, thinks he looks like Sky when trying to find a loophole. She approaches him and demands he take her to the desert palace. The dragon is unsurprisingly confused by a human speaking Dragon and thinks he's hallucinating. She tells him her name is Wren, and he tells Wren his, which she mistranslates as Murderbasket. She asks again for him to fly her through the desert. When he says he's too busy, she doesn't accept his answer. She tells him it'll take him only half a day to fly there while her walking will take much longer, and that she can tell he doesn't like his mission anyway. She also shows him her sword, and accidentally cuts him. He finally accepts that she is, after all, real, and agrees to take her to the desert, even though it's dangerous.
Ivy and her friends are trying to think of a way to return the treasure to the dragons without getting eaten. They were now allowed on missions again, as her father was no longer in a bad mood. They are in a tree and see a trio of SkyWings. They also see a boy running through the forest. The dragons are chasing him, and Ivy throws an apple to distract them and runs to the boy and brings him into the underground city. He introduces himself to them and Foxglove as Leaf and says he's looking for the Dragonslayer. Ivy thinks he's looking for someone to save his village from a dragon when he says he wants to learn to kill one.
Leaf finally found Valor. Ivy walks with him and points out different parts of the city. He asks why they're the only ones wearing green, and she explains they're Wingwatchers. Leaf is happy to learn they're nothing like dragonmancers. He tells Ivy his sister was eaten by dragons, then admits she was sacrificed. Ivy is as horrified as Leaf by this knowledge. Leaf can't go after the dragonmancers, so he's sticking to his plan of dragon-slaying. Ivy causes him to wonder if dragons can grieve, after suggesting other dragons might take revenge. Ivy then introduces Leaf to her father. He gives Heath a message from the Indestructible City, not realizing it's a threat. He is then sent away. Wren's voice in his head compares the Dragonslayer to a dragonmancer. Ivy brings him to Stone, where he can stay. Stone tells him the Dragonslayer's story is different than he thinks, but won't tell him it.
Wren arrives in the palace after being flown there by Murderbasket (aka Deathbringer). They have a short conversation, and she accidentally stabs him again. They agree never to mention each other again. Wren begins her search for Sky. She was seen by dragons a few times, but they seemed not to mind her presence. She also heard a dragon shouting loud, violent threats. She thought the tower containing the roaring dragon could be where prisoners were kept, but when food was brought in there was only enough for one dragon. She found the soldier's barracks. General Sandstorm entered and shouted for Prince Smolder, asking when Queen Burn would return and he could give Sky to her. Wren noticed the general was giving orders to a Prince, which seemed strange to her. From what the dragon had said she knew he was keeping Sky alive. She noticed most dragons seemed annoyed by Sandstorm. She followed him to where Sky was and waited for him to leave, then ran to Sky. She can't release him without the general's key, so decides she'll have to kill him.
Daffodil wakes Ivy up, telling her Wingwatchers are being arrested. Heath has been paranoid since Leaf arrived. Her mother seems afraid. Daffodil and Ivy sneak out and realize just how many people the Dragonslayer has hired to be soldiers. She convinces the soldier to let her into Foxglove's cave and smuggles out the sapphire. She then runs away from the city with Daffodil.
Leaf woke up just before somebody knocked on Stone's door. Stone had him hide in a cabinet while he answered the door. The people outside said they were going to arrest Leaf, and Stone told them he'd sent him to get water. They tell him that he will be arrested unless they get Leaf. They wait outside the door for him to return. Stone shows Leaf to a secret tunnel, and they escape Valor. Stone blocks the tunnel behind them before they go. Stone admits he was the one who killed the dragon and tells Leaf about Rose, explaining why Heath wanted to get rid of him. Leaf realizes how horrible the Dragonslayer really is as they head to the old village. They meet Ivy and Daffodil and learn Wingwatchers were also being arrested. Ivy tells him about their plan to return the treasure, and he tells her about being rescued by the brown dragon and that Stone killed the sand dragon queen, not her dad. They see Sunny checking out the ruins, and Leaf mentions seeing a dragon like her caged in the mountain palace, not realizing it's the same dragon. Ivy says she wants to convince her dad to release the Wingwatchers.
Wren tries to figure out how to kill the sand dragon general. She decides to poison him. Wren has seen lots of mice and no cats, so she decides the kitchens might have rat poison. She's right, and in the kitchens meets another human, Rose. Rose tells Wren she lives there, to her surprise. Wren realizes why the dragons had ignored her running around the palace. Rose hasn't talked to another human for a very long time and is excited to have a conversation, and offers to help Wren collect mouse poison. Rose asks why she's killing Sandstorm and realizes Wren can speak dragon. Wren hid in Sandstorm's room and poisoned his drink. A messenger bursts in after he finishes it, telling him they're under attack. Sandstorm left to fight, and Wren watches the battle from the roof of the palace. The general collapses in the middle of the battlefield.
More information flying in soon …
The epilogue for this book is set in the point of view of Undauntable. He was looking outside his window hoping that Wren would come back to The Indestructible City. It was around fifty-nine days since he proposed to Wren, who didn't accept it and stormed away from him. He was worried that maybe she was killed by a dragon. He even wondered what would happen if he ran away with her, only to dismiss that idea because it was much safer inside the walls of The Indestructible City. His father then found him and beckoned for him to follow. Once he did, his father said that the spy, Boar, who was sent into Valor to become a close guard to him, said that Heath wasn't the actual Dragonslayer and that Stone was, but Stone was a lost cause. He then said he had very 'interesting news'. The news was about a girl who could speak Dragon and had a dragon who she controls (Sky). Undauntable realized that this is Wren. He was terrified for her, admitting that he does love her because she was everything The Indestructible City wasn't. He attempted to lie, for his father listened to Boar say the dragon's scales were a pale orange, which was the same color of the scales Wren had given him during her visits. His father could tell he was lying and ends the epilogue by saying that he will control Wren and take over the world. The book also ends with Undauntable swearing he will protect Wren for as long as he can.
