I wasn't really sure of what to think of Turtle in the book Moon Rising, but since I've read this book, Turtle is my 100% favorite. The ending is a cliff-hangar and leaves you wanting more! Turtle would probably be the type of dragon I'd want to be friends with.

With all of this drama, Anemone doesn't even realize that she wasn't born an animus. Hope someone saves Turtle. And, girls rule soo.... BOO TO THE DARKSTALKER KING! ( Insert tongue sticking out at big mean dragon.) But all the same, I feel bad that Darkstalker does not have his true love anymore. Poor sweet love. #Darkstalker+Clearsight

This is my favourite book in the series so far, and I can't wait for 'The Hive Queen' to come out! I have a guess that there will be more legends, since it says 'legends,' then 'Darkstalker', hinting there woudl be more of it to come out. If you don't believe me, check the list of WOF books in Darkness of Dragons or Lost Continent. I think the next one will be about Jerboa, since much of her story is odd and unexplained.

OMG! This book is amazing! It had me on the edge of my seat everytime I turned the page, and every page brought more excitement! Out of all the books that I have read in this series, this is my second favorite! (Sorry Turtle, but I have to keep my loyalty to Moon). I WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK! #YOUHAVETOREADTHIS -5 Stars!

"All right. You're not a dragon who likes compliments, I see. So I'll be blunt. I don't want to begin my reign as king of the NightWings by killing one of my subjects, especially one who could be such a valuable asset in rebuilding our tribe. Given the utter failure of all her schemes so far, and her relation to Starflight, my proposal is this: grant her your mercy and give her to me. Tomorrow I'll take her to the Night Kingdom with me, where she'll have no reason to bother you anymore. She can be my problem instead."

Make it something really cool, like his insides exploding. Or his face falling of. I'm kidding! I'm a little bit kidding. I mean, insides exploding would be pretty cool right? Never mind.
