After splitting up from Auron after the death of their mother and sister, Wistala searches for her father and eventually finds him close to death. But she is forced to move on and seek her own kind and she promises vengence on those who slaughtered her family. But will she ever see her brother again? And will she ever find a mate and fulfill her promise to her father? Plagued by these wishes Wistala is determined to bring wrath on those who have antagonised her.
This book is about a younge dragon called Auron (hes a rare sub species natural like an albino) a scaless dragon and how he survives in a world were dragons are feared and hunted to the brink of exstinction. (have i still got u) it tells of his wonderings and his life from a hatchling to a fully grown Dragon.(While he has to dodge all sorts of nasty people eager to cash in on killing a dragon.) Theres an adiquite amount of battle to keep u happy and enough depth and soppy stuff for u to not think it a killing spree.
its quite brill but a bit hard to see from a dragons point of veiw(wich the author dose brilliantly) but once u get past there its all up hill. there quite alot of depth to the main caracter so u really get behind him but all enemy and friends arnt really in the book long enough for them to fully expand so to say. i bought this book thinking a time filler but was presently surprised. if u liked pern and ever wanted to get rid of the riders and let the dragons take charge this is ur book.

Wistala, Auron's sister, has to forge a path in a world that is prejudicial to Dragons just like her brother. She finds similar challenges and impediments, but ultimately finds enough Allies to grow and learn. This is not challenging, demanding storytelling in any sense, but just a fun easy to read book.
Knight does a good job of keeping the story topic light. He doesn't get too deeply into graphic violence or other themes that are too strong for a younger reader. It's probably a 13 and up sort of book. It's fun, exciting and light enough to make for a quick rollick from a Dragon's perspective.
There were one or two transcription errors, a missing letter here or there, but nothing that detracted from the reading experience.
This books tells us the tale of Wistala, the sole female survivor of AuRel and Irelia's clutch. To those who say that her story seems a bit more "common",I think you need to translate this into Parl, I mean, human language.
Imagine yourself safe at home, a 7yrs old girl. You have a talented and more beautiful sister, a brother who gets all Father's attention, and another brother, the oldest whom you don't even remember. Then one day, a serial killer enters the house alongside a few robbers. You see your older brother amongst them, and your father isn't home. Your mother hides you and your older brother in the basement and you both find the exit, going outside. Alone in this dangerous world. Your father comes home and is shot, but manages to run. The robbers saw you. your brother runs to distract them and never goes back. You go back into the house and see your mother headless, legless and without her skin. I think this itself can drive even a grown man mad for his life.
Then you run. You find your crippled father and help him recover his health. The serial killer yet manages to find you again, killing your father.
So, don't tell me this story is less brutal than the previous, thanks.
It' strange yet thrilling that you definitely don't need to read the first book to understand this one and the other way around. I don't know how Knight's did it, but I give him my kudos for this. But it's clear on how they are intertwined. I mean, Auron "killed" the guy to whom the dwarves were capturing dragons for, and Wistala killed the dwarves' leader, the one who killed her mother. I can only imagine upon who Copper will lay his revenge!
Definitely worth the time, though to provide full disclosure without giving away the plot, the quality of the last 2 books in the series took a marked step down from the first 4 (plot errors, typos, character inconsistencies, etc). I'd still read it though I wish the series had a stronger ending.
