Publisher's Summary

Rayla, Callum, and Ezran have their work cut out for them now that they have to take care of Zym, the newly hatched Dragon Prince. Things get even more complicated when Claudia and Soren finally track down the wayward princes, forcing Callum to pick a side - should he trust Rayla or his old friends? All the while the High Mage Lord Viren plots and schemes, gaining shadowy new allies. 

The trio races toward Xadia with the threat of a war between the humans and the dragons looming large. But as fiery battles erupt and hidden truths come to light, friendships are tested, plans are set into motion, and tough choices must be made. 

Written by Aaron Ehasz (co-creator of The Dragon Prince and head writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender) and Melanie McGanney Ehasz, this second canon novel based on the Netflix original series finally gives fans the full story.

A GRIPPING, GRACEFUL SECOND ACT

This book continues one of the great fantasy stories of all time, in my opinion.

The second book takes the concept of “The Fellowship of the Egg” (the title of one of the chapters of the first book) and turns it upside down. In “The Lord of the Rings”, the One Ring was so indestructible that Frodo had to travel across the world through numerous dangers to the one place that could destroy it. In “The Dragon Prince: Sky”, to the contrary, the egg (now baby dragon), is fragile, mortal, and vulnerable to both natural dangers and those who hunt him. The delicacy of the precious thing that must be transported across a treacherous world creates a new intensity that elevates the emotional stakes.

Like the first book in the series, this installment treats readers to the inner lives of the characters. I particularly enjoyed being granted access to what is going on in the minds of Viren, Soren, and Claudia. The events of the second season of the show start to position these three characters as villains. By granting us access to their thoughts and doubts, the book balances out their actions and emphasizes the central theme of the heart in conflict with itself. While that theme is in the show, the book deepens the exploration of the idea that there are rarely true heroes and villains. In every war, there are simply people on both sides doing what they feel that they must do, and that idea lands even harder in the book.

The book embraces real and important themes, such as how a leader must make decisions between two difficult choices that no one wants to make, and how restraint and kindness are critical to breaking the cycle of violence. The book also doesn’t sugar dust some uncomfortable things, such as where dark magic comes from. In one of the most powerful scenes (not in the show), the book shows us exactly what it looks like to take from an animal what a human needs as Claudia does what she feels she has to do in order to save Soren. However, the authors strike a graceful balance. Despite the weighty themes, the book uses language and imagery that are tasteful and respectful of how ready younger readers might be for this kind of material. There is nothing in the book more upsetting than in classic Disney films like “Bambi” or “Snow White”, and that is a notable achievement given how ambitious the themes are.

The prose is economical, age-appropriate, and unshowy. The pacing is propulsive but not rushed. This is a book that will consume young readers, who are likely to finish it in one or two sittings despite the length, but that they will want to discuss and tell you all about because of how complex and conflicted the characters are.

Also, bonus points for giving us some of Bait’s inner life!

In summary, this is yet another marvelous installment in this series that is even more thought-provoking than the first book. It stayed with me for days after finishing it. This is a book that asks more questions than it answers. It is less concerned with feeding readers convenient teachable moments and more interested in teaching them to ask the important questions.
