Pretty good! I loved the animus battle near the end, I was so worried that either Anemone or Turtle would die but they freed Anemone from the spell in the end! Turtle gets captures by evil Darkstalker but don't worry! He gets saved and re-animus-a-fied.

Amazing book! It is very clever how Tui twists the expected storyline you would find in any other series. It is one of the only book series I positively enjoy reading! I read a lot of books so I often find myself guessing what will happen next and it ruins the book. But this is written in a whole new way, making it the best series I know!

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

"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.

Prince Turtle the SeaWing is a secret animus. He's been hiding this secret from everyone, even his own mother and sisters, his whole life. He doesn't want anyone to find out, because maybe then they'll use him as a weapon. He finally told his winglet (Moon, Winter, Peril, and Qibli) that he is an animus. They agreed to not tell anyone about it. But when the most feared dragon in Pyrrhia, Darkstalker, suddenly erupts out of the ground (where he's apparently been buried for the last two thousand years), he charms everyone he meets into thinking that he's perfectly nice, not like all the stories. Turtle, being an animus, knows that something is wrong, however. He knows that Darkstalker, who is also an animus, must have put a spell on everyone that makes them all like him. He needs to stop him, so he enchants a stick to hide him from Darkstalker, making him the only one who can spy on him. But he ends up following Darkstalker all the way across Pyrrhia. Turtle, the most shy, background-sticking dragon in the world, is out on a mission to stop the most powerful and dangerous dragon of all.
