Ivy doesn't trust the Dragonslayer. He may be her father and the beloved ruler of Valor, but she knows he's hiding more than the treasure from the sand dragon he killed two decades ago. Leaf doesn't trust dragons. They're the reason his favorite sister, Wren, is dead, and now he'll do whatever it takes to slay even one. Wren doesn't trust anyone. She swore off humans after her village tried to sacrifice her to the dragons. She only has one friend, a small, wonderful mountain dragon named Sky, and they don't need anyone else. In a world of dragons, the humans who scramble around underfoot are easy to overlook. But Ivy, Leaf, and Wren will each cross paths with dragons in ways that could shape the destiny of both species. Is a new future possible for all of them... one in which humans can look to the skies with hope instead of fear?

Dragonslayer (published March 2020) is the newest companion book to the best-selling "Wings of Fire" series. It can be read without having read any of the other books in the series, because it is told from the human/scavenger point of view.

My daughter is a reluctant reader, but she has sped through all the "Wings of Fire" books. Out of curiosity, I bought this to read aloud with her on a car trip and loved it. The characters and plot are very compelling. It reminds me of a children's version of Game of Thrones. There is some violence in the series with dragons murdering others, war battles, torture, etc. Because of the violence I would say it is appropriate for grades 5 and up, although younger children will want to read them, too.

Tui Sutherland has hooked me. Now I'm reading the series starting from book 1 and I love it. I enjoy seeing the humans from the recent Dragonslayer story pop up every now and then in the main series that was written years ago.

OMG WOW. I bought this book because I couldn't wAIT AND FINISHED IT IN ABOUT A DAY!!! I read it from when I got home from school till about literally 12 Pm and finished about 460 of its pages like that. The book is AMAZING and definitely, TOTALLY my favourite book in the series. Sorry Moon Rising XD (And that's saying something). It is amazing and epic and I let my sister read my copy and she usually thinks of Wings of Fire as 'meh' books but she's LOVING this one. Is's TOTALLY my favourite and I think its TOTALLY worth reading (:

OMG!!! I just bought this book because I could not wait several weeks for it, and it was AWESOME!!! I loved the multiple POVs, it added a great perspective to the story. I also liked how she ended it on a sort-of cliffhanger, it definitely leaves room for more books.
I loved the parts in the story where it overlapped with the First Arc, it was really neat to see the humans doing and thinking one thing all the while knowing exactly what the dragon was thinking in that situation. Loved the book!!!

Despite the fact that several have complained about a Scavenger POV (As dragons were one of the most prevalent attributes of this book series that has made it so appealing to young readers), but I digress.

First of all, as this is not part of the main book series, I don't see the whole not-a-dragon POV situation as much of a problem.

Second of all, as a companion book, I think this is a nice addition to the series - Yes, it would be bad if it was part of the main series, but this is a companion book to the series - which means it is completely optional for readers to read to understand the overall plot.
