Happy Birthday, Book Review Tuesday!

A long time ago  One year ago, in a galaxy far, far away, on December 29, 2016…

…I made my very first Book Review Tuesday. Since then, I’ve come so far. Sure, I’ve missed a few days, but now I’m to the point where I don’t know how many reviews I’ve made (partly because I’m too lazy to do the math, but still). So today, I deliver another favorite, as well as an excerpt from my review on Goodreads of this book, which happens to be the 9th Wings of Fire book, Talons of Power.

Talons of Power

An unexpected visitor has arrived at Jade Mountain Academy. His name is Darkstalker, an animus NightWing who’s been asleep for over two thousand years, and has been the stuff of nightmares for the dragons of Pyrrhia ever since. Now, he has come promising that he has let go of his evil ways, and has begun to prove it…by giving out random superpowers for the NightWings who want them. But Turtle, a secretly animus SeaWing prince, is onto him. His suspicions are confirmed when he takes some of the fellow dragonets to the Rain Kingdom and challenges Glory for the throne, promising the NightWing refugees that he will make them a new kingdom. Can Turtle, Moon, and Kinkajou stop him in time? And will Turtle manage to keep his own powers a secret?

Now, my excerpt from my Goodreads review. It goes into a little bit more detail about Darkstalker’s plans to usurp Glory, and also reveals a possible bit of social commentary.

DARKSTALKER FOR PRESIDENT, 2016! MAKE THE NIGHTWINGS GREAT AGAIN!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my last BRT of the year. I wish you all a happy new year!
