A terribly displeasing ending to one of my favorite series ever.

I understand that Tui T. Sutherland had backed herself into a corner with the major plot holes in Talons of Power, but she only digs herself deeper. At this point I don’t think it was an accident or a poorly thought plan, just simply a bad idea executed pretty well.

All things considered, I am extremely disappointed with this book, I was so connected to it, I had dreams of it, wrote fanfictions of it, was inspired by it, and its characters were always in my head…I’m not sure I will ever get over how upset I am with this.

**SPOILER WARNING** If you have not read the book yet, please stop here.
Firstly, it was bad enough that readers had to follow Turtle in Talons of Power, with his sadly pathetic demeanor and slow dopey train of thought, despite his obvious capabilities. But then we get a book with Qibli, whose cleverness and cunning I for one have been greatly looking forward to, only to find someone who thinks along the same lines. β€œOh, woe is me, I’m useless and the world hates me…”

Secondly, Tui has been showing signs of falling into the exact same pit as many other authors, something as an author I cannot stress enough- character consistency. First shown in our fleeting glimpses of our beloved characters in Talons of Power, and now given as a blast to the face here.

Thirdly- and this is mostly due to Talons of Power, not inherently this book- Darkstalker’s defeat was sooo…dumb. One of the unspoken laws of writing is to never, ever make any character, good or evil, all powerful because then there is no really good way to get rid of them. I mean seriously, he teleported all animus dragons all over the world to his throne room in a second (btw, where on earth is the animus enchanting in that spell?), and he supposedly made himself invulnerable to animus magic, yet both with Turtle's stick and with his defeat it didn't seem to work...

Fourth- and this one is about the character pairing in the book, why the heck did Tui decide to do MoonxQibli? Although I suppose it was obvious since she announced that the last book was going to be on Qibli. And this isn’t all about personal opinion! If you think about it, how many times before this book did Moon and Qibli even speak to each other, let alone exchange special looks, or were even alone together? In Winter Turning I would say that Winter and Moon had some romantically tense moments, which was very exciting to read about. On top of that, and this last part doesn’t matter as much, but it is still significant, there were polls on what pair the readers wanted in several places on the internet, including Scholastic’s official website, and readers voted incontestably for MoonxWinter, with the polls going at an average of 76% to 24%.

**End of Spoilers**

All in all, a complete flunk from my point of view, I understand that the vast majority will be happy with whatever they are given, but I’m not, I only ask for three simple things: A good story. Consistent characters. And a good ending. That’s it, nothing more, I’m not asking for perfection, just decency, and although this was one of my favorite series ever, this book couldn’t even nearly reach those simple standards. And for that, my 1-Star Rating.

I read it....
It was ok.
READ IT......
Awesome cliffhanger at the end, for those who haven't read it.
Can't wait for the graphic novel, then I can read Dragonet Prophecy again, and find out what is wrong, and what is right.
XD

*SPOILER ALERT! DON'T READ, IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK! I WILL KNOW!*
I'm a HUGE Darkstalker fan. And I'm pretty happy about him being Peacemaker. (Which is kinda the opposite of what he is.) It's just that........ I'm pretty mad at Tui. For letting Moon choose Qibli.
They ALWAYS choose the underdog! (BTW, I will always be a WinterXMoon shipper.)
Tui wanted everybody to feel sorry for Qibli. Because he's all like, "The whole world doesn't like me, I'm a nobody!" And the readers feel, "Oh! Wee lamb! I feel so sorry for him!"
Tui's going to have me at her door when she opens it, I'm going to slap her in the face, for letting Moon and Qibli getting together. Then I'm going to hug her for making the Wings of Fire series. I will always be a FanWing.
*END OF SPOILERS. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE READ THIS AND HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK, YOU GUYS ARE CHEATERS.*
Still, I can't wait till the next book!

"We're going to inflict Qibli's terrible fashion sense on this whole continent?" Winter asked, joking awkwardly.
"I'm afraid we have no choice" said Queen Thorn.
I think you mean 'wow, what a lot of lucky, soon-to-be-stylish dragons,' " Qibli said.
Pg 154

"No" Winter huffed. "Because now I feel like an idiot. A friend-freezing, enchanted moony-eyed idiot."
"Friend" Qibli cried with delight. "You called me your friend! You do adore me! Life goals: accomplished."
"I'm just saving syllables" Winter snapped. " 'Friend' is faster to say then 'annoying clawmate.'
Pg 149

"Three moons" said Typhoon. "You Sandwings are a little intense about your jewelry."
Pg 145

"I'm sorry I interrupted you" Qibli said to Typhoon.
"Quite all right" said Typhoon. "I would never want to get in the way of urgent accessorizing."
Pg 135
