    3.6 stars I loved this adaption of the fourth book of Wings of Fire! That being said, the fourth book was one of my least favorite books in the series because of the lack of action. The art continues to be beautiful throughout the series, and I feel like the spirit of these books are well communicated. Super entertaining, can't wait for the next one! Have a wonderful afternoon 😎. 3.6 stars I loved this adaption of the fourth book of Wings of Fire!

    Hello, it's me again. I don't think I've given any of these comics a really good rating, and yet I keep buying them and reading them. That's on me. I do adore this series, but my gripe is with the comic books' format. My biggest issue with this was the spliced scenes. If I hadn't read the original, I would have been pretty confused about some of the stuff going on. I get that for space, they can only make the book so big, but I always feel like important scenes or even just little offhand comment Hello, it's me again.

I get that for space, they can only make the book so big, but I always feel like important scenes or even just little offhand comments to help you know there'll be a scene change are always left out. There were specific instances of Starflight having dreams where it's never mentioned he's going to bed, in bed, or dreaming and suddenly it's him chilling with his friends. And yes, it's obviously a dream once you start reading through the page, but it's more the fact that there's no explanation to some of these sudden changes. The art, I feel, was better in this than it has been in the others. I felt the facial expressions may have been the most well-done in this book. That being said, Fatespeaker and Starflight looked almost identical. The only differences were the eye color and muzzle length/width, which, depending on an enormous variety of angles you're seeing them at, they looked the same. So be sure to figure out what eye color Starflight has, I guess, if you want to know which one he is. And, again, this book is a lil bit violent. Which, yeah, the main ones are as well. It's just kinda weird to see dragons so casually murdered on page of a children's book, ya know? (view spoiler)[It's been a hot second since I read the book itself, but isn't Starflight told at the end that he's blind because of the magma? Because wow did this book not say anything other than just have speech bubbles on a black page. Which, again, you wouldn't know 100% why unless you've read the book. (hide spoiler)] So I guess take this all with a grain of salt. I do love the series and the dragons, but these comics feel...lackluster to be sure. Really the only reason I have been buying them is I wanted the main series for drawing references and for pictures of all the kingdoms. .-.

    Another great book in the great series, but I have one problem with the drawings. The dragons look too much like people when they SIT. It just looks like PEOPLE sitting. I always imagined them sitting like dogs or something. Please tell me I’m not the only one a little disturbed.

    Pretty solid graphic novel adaptation of The Dark Secret. My complaint? After the bright and stunning colors and creative character designs for the rainwings, the nightwing dragons were a let down. The backgrounds are so dark, I have to squint to see where the nightwings are, and even then I can barely tell them apart. Starflight has the fatter nose. His dad has the glasses. That's about all I know. If one looks spooky and mean, I sort of just assume its Morrowseer. But all the nightwings look t Pretty solid graphic novel adaptation of The Dark Secret. My complaint?

But other than simple color theory, I enjoyed it. Starflight was such a meme throughout the book, because it's not just him saying relatable things like in the novel, the expressions paired with the words made me laugh aloud. So, good. Just needed more colors and improved character design. Since the sand wings are brighter & have more diverse looks, I'm sure the next graphic novel will be an improvement!

    This was an enjoyable and quick read. It was interesting seeing Nightwing Island in this art style. Speaking of the art style I rather like it. It gives all the dragons the scary edge that they have in the original designs but keeps a slightly cartoony vibe allowing them to express their range of emotions correctly. My only qualm with this book is that it didn't have proper transitions between scenes. If you haven't already read the original novel this would be very confusing to follow.

I read the novel before I read this and I still found myself checking to see if I'd skipped a page. Conversation topics would change without warning and there were no breaks or proper endings to most scenes. Overall a wonderfully drawn book that sums up the fourth novel well, but hard to understand without reading the novel first.

In the end, the queen of the RainWings, Glory, agrees with Starflight that the NightWings can live with them as long as they are loyal to her and peaceful. In return, the NightWings agree to prove their worth and stop experimenting on the poor RainWings. At last NightWings and the RainWings are at peace. (hide spoiler)]

    What's not to like about this graphic novel? I really enjoy the graphic novel adaptations of this series. I get to see my visualizations of the characters depicted perfectly. So good that it made the part where they kill dragons very violent (I mean, since when was killing not violent?). Reading this graphic novel has brought up a question I had earlier in the series. "Isn't this a children's book?". They tell you that this is supposed a story meant for kids but then you see a dragon getting burn What's not to like about this graphic novel?

"Isn't this a children's book?". They tell you that this is supposed a story meant for kids but then you see a dragon getting burned to death, dragons killing each other, dragon heads on spikes, etc. I honestly don't have a problem with it. I find it really amusing tbh 😆 Also, I really like is how the graphic novels adapted the novels so well. I hope they continue adapting this series because I really enjoy it Looking forward to more dead dragons 😆

    I like this series of graphic novels in part because I'm kind of familiar with the story or, more precisely, with the premise of the quest story that is the basis of the plot. My issue with this one was that it was soooo dark so that all the dragons looked the same and I had a hard time figuring out who was who in any panel where there were multiple nightwings drawn. At the same time, the story was good and flowed well. Definitely a great addition for anyone who has read the books or who is, like I like this series of graphic novels in part because I'm kind of familiar with the story or, more precisely, with the premise of the quest story that is the basis of the plot.

Anything to keep him reading.

    The Wings of Fire saga continues, this time focusing on Starflight and the NightWings. Starflight has been kidnapped and taken to the island of the NightWings where he discovers all kinds of secrets: the NightWings motive in the dragon war, why the NightWings are determined to destroy the RainWings, and even that there are other dragonets that threaten the lives of Starflight and his friends. Starflight has never been the bravest dragon, but it might just be up to him to save the day.

    This is a pretty good rendition of the fourth Wings of Fire novel. Naturally, some things are left out. There’s some choppy transitions between when Starflight is awake and when he’s having dreams. Sometimes it takes a bit to realize that’s what’s happening. They left out the good part at the end about what happens to Morrowseer and left it to our thoughts about the Starflight’s incident. I love the facial expressions.

I love the artwork in these graphic novels, and reading this made me stop hating Fatespeaker, who I hated after reading the original book. I guess I didn't understand that she wasn't making the futures up, and actually saw the future. I read the original book in elementary school and I just love it so much.

    The art was cool, the story was ok, overall a pretty good read. I sped through it. I might read more of the graphic novels for this series, but probably not. I am finding this series hard to get into. I loved book three, book one was pretty cool, I don't even remember book two... and I dnf'd the novel of book four. S o definitely not my go-to series, but still something that I can enjoy. The art was cool, the story was ok, overall a pretty good read. I sped through it.

    I started this while my power was out the first time, and finished it while it was out the second time during the Great Winter Storm of 2021. It was fine, but it had already been too long since I'd read the previous ones and I had a hard time telling the dragonets apart. But I also realize that I am not the intended audience for this book.

    3.5, rounded up. The plot moved slowly and some characters barely got any time at all in this book, but I still enjoy this series and am excited for more. The setting for this one was dark and depressing and I had more trouble than usual confusing dragons of the same color, but I was still impressed with the overall graphic effort. It really makes this series so engaging and exciting!

    Another solid adaptation. Action was handled well. I was impressed with how expressive faces were in this volume, and how well they differentiated the different nightwings, given that they are basically all black dragons; the artist did a great job differentiating them by eye color, belly color, markings, muzzle structure, etc. The only thing I disliked was that the ending felt rushed.

    [SPOILERS AHEAD!!!] This is one of my least favorite WOF books (but I still love them all!), but I almost forgot about the fighting and explosions and stuff, which made me like the book more. Thanks for another amazing graphic novel, Tui and Mike! Now get tot work on the next one, please!

    Going back into this world especially with the first arc is just a whirlwind of memories and happiness. The graphic novels I think are really well done and are great adaptions.

    Did not disappoint, of course! The art style seems to be getting better all the time (or at least it's grown on me; seriously, how can they make a bunch of NightWings actually look different? That is seriously impressive), and obviously the story is good. I'm looking forward to the next one. Did not disappoint, of course!

    There were so many moments from the novel that I was looking forward to seeing illustrated and I gotta say, I wasn't disappointed. They did an excellent job translating this book into a graphic novel and every page was very appealing to look at.
