I remember I started reading Wings of Fire when I had nothing else to read and I was REALLY bored, and a friend of mine had been talking about The Hive Queen's release (December 2019). So in January 2020, I went to Barnes and Noble and picked up The Dragonet Prophecy, and loved it. <3
it happened to be in the same area as Warriors at the bookstore (I was still into Warriors at the time) and it looked interesting, so I picked up the Dragonet Prophecy and read the first chapter or two. For some reason the line 'Clay felt about as dangerous as cauliflower" sold me on it, so I took it home and the rest is history. I'm well above the target age range for these books now, but I've been reading them since sixth grade and I'm too invested to stop at this point, so here I am
My parents picked up the first book when I was like eight, but I don't think I actually read it till around ten or eleven? I read up through The Lost Continent, and then stopped reading because I just couldn't get into the third arc. I still considered WoF my favorite series for several years, even though I didn't really keep up with the story. I picked the books up again a few months ago to try and reread, and fell back in love with the series! I've now read the two newest books, except for Dragonslayer and the Winglets.
I don’t really belong here because I’ve only read 2 1/2 books of wings of Fire 4 years ago but my friend who introduced to me warriors introduced me to Wings of Fire and i read a few books but it just didn’t catch onto me for whatever reason. I think the main reason is I read the books way out of order so I was confused. Anyways from what I can recall one the books was about them finding Rain Wings or something and the other was a one that was mainly focused on the Night Wings. I might try to read the series again idk yet

I knew about the series ever since I found out that Tui (an ex-WC writer) wrote it, but I never started reading it until a few years ago. I found it at a bookstore when I was devoid of any good series and started looking through the map/dragon species/prologue. I liked what I saw and ended up loving the series as a whole! Now I just need to finish it.

Starting in September last year, I checked out the books from my local library at a furious pace. I had finished book 13 by the end of November. During that time I got a reputation around my friend/study group for always carrying around “those dragon books”. I received the graphic novels for Christmas and read those all before the new year (which are the only WOF books I own right now). I read Dragonslayer when it came out and now I’m impatiently awaiting the release of The Dangerous Gift.
Side note: While I was at a church potluck, one girl was reading book 2 but I didn’t want to interrupt her since she looked like she was enjoying it. I’ll try to remember and ask her some time about her thoughts of the series.
No idea when, but I do know it was at least before Moon Rising came out because I was eagerly waiting for it. My mother brought home The Dragonet Prophecy from the library thinking I would be interested in it. Funny thing, it didn't interest me at first glance and I didn't get around to looking into it until a little later. So thank you so much, mom! I remember reading the first book over and over cause that was the only content I had for a long time. I had wanted the rest of the books so bad, to the point I tried to find them somewhere online, which failed, but did help me discover Wattpad. Eventually, my mom did buy me the rest of the first arc.
I started reading it in the summer of 2017. I had known about it for a while from the forums but it never really interested me, but I guess I was really bored around that time so I decided to check it out. It’s one of my favorite series now lol

Card against Humanity: yeah i never liked the books bc they seemed like badly written star wars ripoffs

Fire the Silver Wolf: the books were good, I was just questioning the line. (Any parallels to star wars are more towards the beginning of the books, though the series itself does an amazing job at world building.)

Fire the Silver Wolf: I mean, it's the same thing with Lion king and Hamlet. Same general plotline, completely different settings. Except eragon's plot deviates much more.

Fire the Silver Wolf: Plus, Saphira is the greatest character in anything hands down.
