Gr 4-7-The dragonets set out to find the hidden underwater SeaWing kingdom and Queen Coral, Tsunami's mother, in this exciting sequel to The Dragonet Prophecy (Scholastic, 2012). When they arrive, Coral is thrilled to see the daughter who was stolen from her as an egg, but things don't go exactly as planned. Tsunami had always assumed she was the sole heir to the SeaWing throne, but a surprise younger sister leaves her confused about her future role, and Queen Coral's distrust of the other dragonets causes them to be imprisoned yet again. Having read the first book in the series will help youngsters understand the motivations behind the characters' choices, but isn't strictly necessary to enjoy the nonstop action. Tensions mount as someone continues to kill Coral's unhatched female dragonets, and Tsunami herself is attacked. The dragonets become more and more endearing as the series progresses, and the adults more sinister. Moments of danger and brutality are tempered with comic relief, making this a perfect adventure for young fantasy fans to sink their teeth into.-Mandy Laferriere, Fowler Middle School, Frisco, TX (c) Copyright 2013.
