    This is the second book in the Wings of Fire graphic novel series. I don’t have a ton to say about this book.

Tsunami journeys to the SeaWings to find her mother, Queen Coral, and learn about her family. However things don’t turn out as she expects. The illustration is colorful, well done, and easy to follow. The dialogue is just as witty and cute as it was in the full length book. I do like the full length book better than these graphic novel versions, however these are a good option for kids who find the full length novels intimidating. This is one of the better book to graphic novel series out there. I think both kids and adults who are fans of the Wings of Fire series will enjoy. Just be aware this doesn’t add anything to the world or story, just repeats it. Overall this is a very well done graphic novel rendition of the second book in the Wings of Fire series. While I wouldn’t seek these out on my own, I will continue to read them as long as my son does. Recommended to fans of the Wings of Fire series, or those who would rather read this series in graphic novel than full length novel format.

    The book Wings Of Fire The Lost Heir Graphic Novel by Tui T. Sutherland is about a dragon named tsunami and her friends in a journey. They are looking for a palace. The reason they are looking for a palace, is because tsunami's mother is the queen of the summer and deep sea palace.

What I liked the most was when the queen asked her lost daughter something, and Tsunami remembered but it was something surprising, if you read the first graphic novel, then you will be really surprised on how it shows the same moment in the second graphic novel. The book has really good pictures and it shows how the text connects to the story. A connection I thought in my head is that if my mom lost me she would have “Ripped The Earth” to find me. I would recommend this book to people who like action, and adventure.

    Fans of the Wings of Fire Series won't want to miss the graphic novels. The colors are bright and the direction of the story is easy to follow. It's very similar to the actual book but I enjoyed reliving the story with vibrant colors to go along with it.

I would recommend reading the actual book first, but this one is still my favorite in the series. I love that the setting is underwater and I love the humor throughout the book. Actual seeing the characters instead of just reading them makes it that much more of a fun story. It's fast-paced and the tension will have you quickly turning the pages. Final Verdict: I would recommend this to current fans of the Wings of Fire Series, dragons, graphic novels, and action/adventure.

    It's been a long time since I read the full-length second Wings of Fire book, so I'd pretty much forgotten the whole plot. But this graphic novel did a great job summing it up for me! This story looks great in full-color illustrations, and I do remember this book being one of my favorites of the series (the real novel, that is). My only complaint- and this is a dumb one, too- is that it sort of takes away what I'd imagined the setting to look like.

    This was a good read. Very good art. However, if I had not read the original book beforehand, I would have enjoyed the book much less. It's like making a rendition into a movie - the movie tends not to be as good as the book, with a few exceptions. (Forrest Gump and The Princess Bride anyone?) Overall enjoyed it Could've been better.

    I thought this was a lovely companion to both The Dragonet Prophecy Graphic Novel and The Lost Heir book itself. This novel was filled with beautiful illustrations of some of our favorite characters and then some characters that were only mentioned in the series, but now have a face to add to their name. I loved seeing the artists version of the Summer Palace, and getting to see the Pavilion that Prince Albatross created with his magic.

I loved seeing the artists version of the Summer Palace, and getting to see the Pavilion that Prince Albatross created with his magic. Overall this was a great addition to the Wings of Fire series. I didn't like that they changed some lines from the book in this, some scenes were changed, and Blister never called Queen Coral just Coral. I caught some lines that were shortened and lines that were taken from one scene in the book were used in a different scene in the graphic novel. One scene that was changed a lot from the book was the scene where the dragonets are forced to hide from six skywings they see on a patrol. In the graphic novel there are six dragons (five skywings and Crocodile is also with them) Tsunami learns about Crocodile's betrayal in this scene instead of near the end of the story like she does in the book. But it didn't bother me that much. You must understand that graphic novels usually do not have a ton of room so they can't follow the book exactly, sometimes they have to introduce characters at different points then the book and also have to shorten scenes. A fun short read for any dragon fan. I still really loved this and plan on reading it again tonight when I get home. P.S. The scene where Tsunami fights the statue in the hatchery was just a tad creepy in illustrated form.

I will always enjoy the twist in this book. Seeing the first interaction between Tsunami and Riptide was very fun. I really like how Anemone was portrayed in this book. At heart she is a young dragon who wants to have fun. I will always appreciate how Tsunami trusted Sunny with Auklet's egg. Also I enjoyed how it showed Tsunami realizing that she had killed her own father. Very fun.

    Reading this book with all the illustrations was so much fun! Especially because of how hard it was for me to imagine the Summer Palace. I really like this art style and the way you can tell which dragons are which even when they're all SeaWings or whatever. I wouldn't suggest reading this over the original novel, but I would definitely suggest reading them both, in whichever order you prefer.

    I started this when I didn't have time and then put it away and didn't get to it. Since book 3 is out, I thought I'd better get to it. I couldn't remember where I was up to so I started from the beginning. I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. I forgot how good this series is and I just love these graphic novels. The drawings are so good. Tui t sutherland is so funny at times, I had forgotten that. A must read graphic novel for fans of the book.

They can look a little too awkward for my tastes on occasion, but they're usually are pretty solid. On OTHER occasions, the characters can have some absolutely beautiful expressions, such as Anemone's distraught expression on page 191. My biggest criticism with this book is its pacing. Some people may enjoy the faster pace, but I believe there are certain parts that feel really jarring. My best example of this would be the transition from page 173 to 174, when Orca's statue freezes moments away from Tsunami's death, before cutting to Tsunami, Auklet, and the other Dragonets on the beach. Yes, the original The Lost Heir had a similar transition, but the difference there is that Tsunami had time to contemplate what she had just gone through in the original, whereas she just thinks to herself "Thank goodness" in the graphic novel, and then it immediately switches scenes. But for the most part, this adaptation of The Lost Heir is incredible! If you had trouble getting through the original (for some reason), or you just want to experience this book again, this is a must buy!

    The biggest issue here was trying to differentiate between Seawing Dragons as the colour palette was so similar on everyone. I loved the main climax (definitely didn't see it coming). Overall, 3/5 stars.

    3.5 stars. Compared to The Dragonet Prophecy, The Lost Heir is better in consistency, but there is still the issue of the artwork and the general pacing. Main problems with this: the facial expressions sometimes are beyond bizarre and make no sense. I definitely think the artist does best with over-the-top dramatic expressions, but even then they can look truly odd. Some of the weirder ones would be Glory talking to the gang in the beginning, and Tsunami's monologues. Another problem were Tsunami's 3.5 stars.

Some of the weirder ones would be Glory talking to the gang in the beginning, and Tsunami's monologues. Another problem were Tsunami's monologues. A lot of the story takes place under the water, keeping the reader inside Tsunami's head and the only language spoken was Aquatic. It took several seconds for me to even notice that the scales on the dragons were glowing at all because it was so faint. That could have definitely been drawn better with more emphasis on the shining scales or drawing more glow areas. There were a lot of pages where Tsunami's head or body moved down the page diagonally to show her speaking or thinking, but, again, this was oddly done. I do think that could have been done differently without so much repetition to the pages whenever she did that. There were moments where the artwork would suddenly get immensely better and more detailed for no reason at all, but then revert back to the more cartoonish styles. The juxtaposition of this showed just how oddly drawn some of the dragons are when in the more cartoon style. The heads and bodies do not fully look proportionate or normal to how they would move. There is one scene, near the end, where Coral and another character are on thrones, and what makes no sense is that the dragons are sitting in the thrones as though they were humans (back straight, legs down, arms on the rests). Anatomically speaking, having dragons crouch on their legs like that would be immensely painful as well as make no sense as they are four legged creatures. Why would they ever sit on their hind end like a human? It's a good adaptation, but it could have been better.

    the lost heir is a great read from Tui T. Sutherland. this is about a dragenet trying to find her home and of course getting in some trouble along the way. this book has stunning art that really hooks you into the story. its a perfect story of adventure with dragons i can read any day. i recommend this book to people who love adventure, stunning pictures, and dragons.

The illustrations are filled with color, detail that shows the illustrator read and loved the series, and some resplendent double-page spreads. The SeaWing Kingdom is rendered beautifully here, and I found it hard to leave. My rating would have been higher perhaps if I'd read this one before the original version, but fans of the series can't go wrong with this format. I doubt that anyone reading it will be disappointed. Honestly, it was hard for me to leave the world created by Tui Sutherland brought to life by Mike Holmes.

    I have an immediate love for this series. Not just because the characters are all dragons - though that certainly scores points with me - but it has a fantastic, dark story and truly intriguing characters all with their own motivations. Tension is constantly kept high and the twists surprise me. I'm slightly less impressed with the art, though. While it's all very well drawn, I had a hard time distinguishing between characters at first, and some panels/sequences confused me as to what was going o I have an immediate love for this series.

It does make me want to read the novels instead. That and finding out what happens next, of course. Still, the graphic novels are very enjoyable.
