    This book that I give would be 4.5 stars for me.It was really different compare to the Ice Wolves but I didn't mind the storyline. I liked that there was conflict between dragons and wolves and the reason behind the war between them. Also I liked that there was more action, suspense, the main character Anders has not only gained his sister Reyna and Lisabet but also he gained new friends the were completely different to his kind.

I liked that there was conflict between dragons and wolves and the reason behind the war between them. Also I liked that there was more action, suspense, the main character Anders has not only gained his sister Reyna and Lisabet but also he gained new friends the were completely different to his kind. But some parts of the story was packed with adventure and flying and traveling places to get the artifact to restore peace between wolves and dragons. Overall I was satisfied with the story and I can't wait for the final Elementals to come out next year in 2020.

    Middle grade and I don't really get on, but this was a fun follow up to Ice Wolves!While my YA + Adult reading brain battles with the writing style and how easily the kids achieve the steps on their quest, my 8-10 year old self would have been liiiiiiiiiiiiving for this immersive fantasy world and chosen family!

I absolutely adore this Scandinavian-inspired world with dragons versus wolves, and the twins caught in the middle. The world is so lush and atmospheric, and when the weather gets cold, you can feel it. I also love the magic system and the quest to forbidden lands and mysterious mountaintops, which spoke to my childhood love of Emily Rodda. This instalment sees us venture to Drekhelm, home of the dragons, and it was great to see the dragon society at play! There are some great learning moments here for the characters and young reader about valuing differing perspectives, not jumping to conclusions, finding a balance between heart and head, and trying to understand that history is written from the perspective of the victors. I wish there'd been more obstacles to each stop of the quest, and that the major conflict scene had been slower and more fleshed out, and I struggled a little with the writing style. But it's hard to say whether that's me being a 20-something reading books meant for 10 year olds, or a fault with the writing. Nonetheless, I look forward to seeing where our diverse magical crew end up next.

    I just love these kids so much! They're so brave and honestly, I would have been head over heels for this series as a 10-year-old. I'm still loving it as a 26-year-old! I love the transformation magic, what kid didn't love dragons and wolves? Just the best creatures to pick. I'm so happy we got to see so much of the dragon's realm in the book when the first focused so heavily on the wolves. After seeing how both societies are run it's clear that both have many problems.

Though I will say I vastly prefer dragon school to the wolf academy. The flight of the dragons also allowed us to see more of the world in which these books are set. There are some really magical descriptions of the landscapes and the various places they travel to. We also discover more of Anders and Rayna's past and it is juicy! The new dragon characters were a lot of fun. I love that even though these kids have grown up with so much prejudice between them they manage to see beyond what they've been told and become friends with someone they've been told to hate. I do wish it had been a little harder for them at some points in their quest but that's likely because I'm an adult reading a middle grade. Younger me probably would have felt a lot differently. I'm very excited to see how this series concluded in the final book!

    3.5*This was a good sequel and an adventure.I liked the characters and the relationship between brother and sister and how close they were to finding their mother, hope to see more of that in the third book.I wasn't expecting that ending... it felt a little too soon... Overall it was a good middle grade book.

    Not written for me but still a great read. Sometimes with sequels they do not live up to the promise of the first book but this did and more!I can’t wait for my children to read it and we can discuss it. The only disappointment was the ending.... I wanted the book to continue.
