The Lost Continent Prophecy as seen in the books

The Lost Continent Prophecy is a prophecy given by Moonwatcher at the beginning of The Hive Queen. The third arc revolves around this prophecy.

The Lost Continent Prophecy

Turn your eyes, your wings, your fire
To the land across the sea
Where dragons are poisoned and dragons are dying
And no one can ever be free.

A secret lurks inside their eggs.
A secret hides within their book.
A secret buried far below
May save those brave enough to look.

Open your hearts, your minds, your wings
To the dragons who flee from the Hive.
Face a great evil with talons united
Or none of the tribes will survive.

Interpretations

These are user interpretations of the Lost Continent Prophecy. While they have been reviewed and deemed accurate by parts of the community, it is important to note that they are not stated in canon.


Turn your eyes, your wings, your fire-tells Pyrrhian dragons to pay attention to Pantala.

To the land across the sea-refers to Pantala.

Where dragons are poisoned-is a reference to Queen Wasp and the Othermind using the breath of evil to control dragons.

And dragons are dying-is a reference to all the deaths Queen Wasp and the Othermind have and will cause.

And no one can ever be free.-refers to how the HiveWings were under Wasp's mind control, the SilkWings under Wasp's rule, the LeafWings unable to leave the Poison Jungle and all the dragons who will now be under the Otherminds control.

A secret lurks inside their eggs.-is a reference to Queen Wasp injecting HiveWing eggs with the breath of evil.

A secret hides within their book.-refers to the map showing how to fly to Pyrrhia, hidden in the binding of the Book of Clearsight. It could additionally refer to the fact that no predictions from the book are relevant to the present day.

A secret buried far below-refers to the human city around the abyss, or, the fact that Raven's friend's older brother, Vole, was being mind controlled by the Othermind. It could also be either the fact that the Pantalan scavengers might know something about the abyss, or that the Othermind can also control scavengers as well.

May save those brave enough to look.-refers that there is hope if they have the courage to stand up to Queen Wasp and the Othermind.

Open your hearts, your minds, your wings-is probably a reference to what appears to be the theme of this arc: empathy versus resistance to evil. Opening your heart means empathy, which is one of Blue's strengths; opening your mind means discovering and accepting the truth, Cricket's power; and opening your wings means resisting and fighting back, which Sundew is known for. All the point-of-view characters seem to be gradually discovering that they need all three of these to carry out a revolution. For example, Blue was very empathetic but rather ignorant and passive at the beginning of The Lost Continent but has since opened up his mind and wings, and Sundew has learned to open her heart and be empathetic to the HiveWings and SilkWings who might not like Wasp and who she previously believed to be evil and cowardly. However, this could be meant to persuade Snowfall to be more open-minded to the Pantalan dragons who aren't controlled by the breath of evil.

To the dragons who flee from the Hive.-refers to the dragons who escaped Pantala before being controlled by the Othermind.

Face a great evil with talons united-refers to the "Super Secret Stealth Team" that was sent to Pantala, consisting of a dragon from each tribe to confront the Othermind.

Or none of the tribes will survive.-predicts that the Othermind may eventually spread to Pyrrhia unless stopped, or a chain reaction caused by Wasp or the Othermind would doom Pyrrhia.
