About this deal

The story leans a lot on to the lore of the Pied Piper and the 'magic' that he wields. Our story begins with one piper trying to rid a town of giant rats. He ends up using a forbidden song. On top of various other things, the latter part leads our protagonist into very hot water. He is a good boy who had many dreams but wanted to use his natural piping skills for the best reasons. His punishment coincides with the revenge of the dragons. Something wavered on the blurry horizon — a hut? A tree? The dragon shifted course to aim for it, but as she got closer, it disappeared again. Despite being Qibli's grandfather, Vulture hates and haunts him. [33] Vulture's punishment for stealing from him would be certain death, [25] and Qibli felt enraged when Vulture spoke badly of Thorn. [14] Vulture considers Qibli to be the smartest of Cobra's dragonets, [34] and while they are both equally observant, [20] Vulture was deceptive [7] towards him. He hurt Qibli and made him doubt that everything was real. [31] Family Tree [ ] A bond develops between these three and they set off on a quest to reverse Wren’s curse, fulfil Barver’s mothers dying wish and help Patch avoid incarceration. With a Man in the Iron Mask-style twist to the tale, they inadvertently become the only three able to face, and ultimately stop, the Hamelyn piper’s evil plan to create a piper army. With so many unanswered questions and the piper of Hamelyn still on the loose, my only disappointment is having to wait for the second novel to be published.

But it isn’t fair!” Palm burst out. “Why can’t he fall in love? Why does his whole life have to be wasted just so his mother won’t feel threatened? Other royal families aren’t like this.” She rubbed her eyes angrily. “Besides,” she muttered, “it could be male, and then no one would even care about it.”Have you cast a musical song of magic?

An manchen Stellen fand ich die Geschichte schon ein bisschen brutal bzw. die Gewalt gegenüber Tieren nicht so schön. Aber dies gehörte einfach zur Geschichte und die Saga vom Rattenfänger ist ja auch keine harmonische Geschichte. A Dark Inheritance is an exciting start to a new series by Chris D'Lacey, who already has a big fan base for his Last Dragon Chronicles. I enjoyed this book overall. I struggled to get in to it at first, but as the plot moved on I started to enjoy it more. I tend to listen to books as audio books and at times had to pause to recap which character was which. I think this was due to sometimes characters being referred to their title and not their name.

A Darkness of Dragons by S.A. Patrick | Waterstones

I love the piper mythology, and think the author did a fantastic job of weaving a known story into something more. Plus I love that it’s one I’ve not seen a retelling of before. 💙 She was probably right. Palm had always felt the eyes of the three SandWing princesses on her — Burn’s ferocious glare, Blister’s malevolent scrutiny, even gossipy Blaze’s watchful curiosity. Smolder tried to meet Palm in secret, but perhaps there was no such thing as a true secret in the palace. As Foeslayer was mother to Darkstalker in his past life, she now looks after Peacemaker as Hope. Naturally, the two have a strong bond, and Peacemaker seems to amuse Hope quite often, given his silly and sweet personality. I was particularly impressed by the magic system; revolving around music and layered Songs used to manipulate energy and cast spells. I can't wait to continue the adventure with Patch, Wren, and Barver. She threw herself down and burrowed until she was hidden. A few layers below the surface, she found a cooler swathe of sand, and she drove her scalded talons into it.

In the imaginative adventure novel A Darkness of Dragons, a troubled boy summons the bravery to help his friends and save his country from war. All of the upper key stage 2 pupils who have read this book with me have thoroughly enjoyed it. I would highly recommend it to readers Year 6 and above but it would also make a fantastic class reader with upper KS2.

A Darkness of Dragons - Goodreads

I think I'll call him Peacemaker. I wonder if history would have been different if I'd chosen a name like that from the beginning." — Hope to Moonwatcher about Peacemaker, Darkness of Dragons With the help of Wren, a girl cursed to live as a rat, and Barver, a fire-breathing dracogriff, Patch must stop the Piper sparking the biggest battle of them all. Three accidental heroes versus one legendary villain... an epic adventure is born. About This Edition ISBN: Description: scales constantly shift colors, usually bright like birds of paradise; prehensile tails I enjoyed the first book in this series, A Darkening of Dragons, but I enjoyed the sequel even more. I found myself sneaking off to keep reading as the action was full on throughout. I loved that the book included a recap from the last book and think all series should have these since sometimes it’s been awhile since you’ve read the last. Jade Mountain will fall beneath thunder and ice — Qibli's storm (summoned with Anemone's weather bracelets), and the battle between IceWings and NightWings.

Wren, not only has a great friendship with Patch, she is also a bright, sweet and delightful character. Wren was cursed to live the remainder of her live out as a rat until she came across Patch and together they face challenges to find out how they can reverse her curse. Their teamwork is inspiring and it really brings into question, how far you will go to help a stranger? I think this is important since you look at modern society and how little humans will lend a hand to help another. When did helping someone turn into a painful chore? It can’t be much farther, she thought desperately. Of course, the journey never seemed this long when she flew. But she’d been running for half the night and surely the sun had risen hours ago. What if I’m lost? Or what if she moved without telling me? It had been almost a year since her last visit … Beware the talons of power and fire, — Vulture's organization, appropriately named " Talons of Power," and Peril when she burned Darkstalker's scroll, thus freeing Darkstalker. This could also be Anemone when she was allied with Darkstalker, or Darkstalker himself. Another reason it could be Anemone is because of the ceremony, where Turtle makes Anemone a fellow animus. The "fire" could refer to Peril, as she was the one to accidentally release Darkstalker. Yet another interpretation of the "fire" could be that it was referring to Vulture's organization, which had set fires. No, wait!” Palm floundered out of the pool and threw herself at her sister’s feet. “I was careful, I promise! I just need a place to hide for a few — even one day, just one day. Then I’ll keep running and you’ll never have to see me again, I swear.” Patch, our leading guys was wonderful. He always would put his best foot forward to help those around him and would go to any length to help his friends and it was delightful. And I can’t get over the friendship that he and Wren share, its sweet, innocent and I put want to put them in bubble wrap and protect them. Adorable!
