    Stupid me thought it was October 15th, 2018 and not 2019.I was about to storm my library demanding why I couldn't find the book in their catalogs. Thank goodness I looked over the publication date again.I actually read the book and as you can guess.......IT WAS AMAZINGIf you see my other reviews, you would know that I rated the other graphic novels veryyyy low because I felt like they didn't really represent the character and thier designs properly. This graphic nov Stupid me thought it was October 15th, 2018 and not 2019.I was about to storm my library demanding why I couldn't find the book in their catalogs. Thank goodness I looked over the publication date again.I actually read the book and as you can guess.......IT WAS AMAZINGIf you see my other reviews, you would know that I rated the other graphic novels veryyyy low because I felt like they didn't really represent the character and thier designs properly. This graphic novel is the exception though and I'm honestly surprised that it did this well. I thought that if the other graphic novels flopped when designing the basic characters it would do worse designing the rainwings since they were so vibrant. Not only were they able to show the different colors of the rainwings, they were also able to differentiate each rainwing so they don't look the same unlike what they did in books 1 and 2.I also thought they improved the other characters as well. They looked more vibrant and animated and I loved it. I loved Kinkajou's and Tamarin's designs!I had some complaints before but I can't remember it now since they were too petty to be remembered.Reading the graphic novel has reminded me of how much I love Glory and this whole series. I'm going back and reading the graphic novel again! 😁Edit 11.11.19 I read the graphic novel and saw that there were subtle changes of color in the rainwings and i love that detail!!

    Still not a fan about how some scenes are cut out of the graphic novels, but as a whole, this one has been my favorite for a variety of reasons. Firstly, Glory is my favorite WOF character of all time, and anything that includes her is better (I promise I'm not rating the book on this, though, lol). The story felt a lot more streamlined than the previous two graphic novels, almost as though the creators finally figured out what scenes are the least important to the plot and are removed compared Still not a fan about how some scenes are cut out of the graphic novels, but as a whole, this one has been my favorite for a variety of reasons.

The story felt a lot more streamlined than the previous two graphic novels, almost as though the creators finally figured out what scenes are the least important to the plot and are removed compared to The Dragonet Prophecy that would remove parts of scenes and wrap up said scene with no explanation as to how the dragons got there or what was happening. The internal monologues in this compared to The Lost Heir were better, but that could also be in part to how much of Tsunami's story was in her head compared to Glory's. The artwork still isn't the best, but between some of the gorgeous scenes from The Lost Heir and now the full-page spreads from The Hidden Kingdom, I think I appreciate it more.Is it my favorite comic adaption of something I love ever? No. I still think the Warriors manga are some of the best, but that's also because they create new stories, not recreate old ones. It's hard to have a comic/manga adaptation of a book and not compare them. I do think Wings of Fire would have been better if the comics were strictly new content or even the Winglets in comic form.As it is, will I continue to buy these? Obviously. I want the whole first series since it is the best that the WoF universe has to offer.

    A great colorful graphic novel adaptation of Tui's very good series. This is a great book but I would definitely recommend reading the real series first.

    I was really excited and nervous for this volume - technicolor dragons in a brilliant rainforest is something that should be thrilling in graphic novel format, and can so easily fall flat. Overall, this adaptation was solid - the art is bright and colorful without being garish, although the style is still fairly simple. I'd love to see a more elaborate artist take on these book, though I know that won't happen.In text, discriminating characters quickly often relies on the first letter/syllabl I was really excited and nervous for this volume - technicolor dragons in a brilliant rainforest is something that should be thrilling in graphic novel format, and can so easily fall flat.

I'd love to see a more elaborate artist take on these book, though I know that won't happen.In text, discriminating characters quickly often relies on the first letter/syllable of the character's name. In graphic mediums, color schemes fill that role to orient the reader. In The Lost Heir, this was sometimes difficult as the book was largely monochromatic. Going into this book I was nervous since Rainwing color palettes are more complex and constantly change with mood/circumstances. The artist did a great job with body structure to differentiate, better than the previous book, even. I think the scenes with Tamarid could have been a bit more experimental in depicting her experience without alienating the younger audience.My biggest complaint is that the plot of the book shifts gears very abruptly, and the tone shifts with it. The ending doesn't feel satisfying because the pre-shift arc isn't satisfactorily closed. (view spoiler)[The first half focuses on the mystery of the monster and missing Rainwings. The second half if about Glory vying for the throne. By the end, she gets the throne, but saving the Rainwings is on the back burner. I know why, given how the books link up, but its not as tight or satisfying a story structure as the other books. (hide spoiler)]Can't wait for #4.

    This book follows the dragonets of destiny, Clay, Tsunami, Starflight, Sunny, and Glory as they travel through the rainforest. Glory wants to prove that Rainwings are not lazy or weak, as their guardians said in the tunnels. But she finds out that the rainwings actually were somewhat lazy and naive, though they need to be in order to keep themselves healthy. Worse yet is the fact that Rainwings are vanishing without a trace, and the others don't seem to notice or care.

Glory decides to find them herself, even though it might mean confronted the monster itself.I love this book! The art is amazing and so similar, yet so different, from how I pictured things when I read the chapter book. A must-read, but only for those who have read the other books in the series as well as the graphic novels. I would not recommend starting with this book because it is the third in the series of graphic novels. Tui Sutherland is an incredible author, and this book is truly a work of art.

    I learned from Jesset that the development of the graphic novel takes place over the course of the series. I read Book Three - The Hidden Kingdom of the Wings of Fire series. The characters of the dragons and the challenges unfold throughout the graphic novel and the end is actually a teaser for the next book, much like a television series.

    Maybe not quite five stars, but it's as good as the written book and extra fun because of being able to see the characters-- it's especially fun to see all the RainWings' different colors and things. That alone earns it somewhere around that many stars. Really good. Not disappointed.

    I'm really enjoying this graphic novel series! I don't know that I would like them as much if I hadn't read the books, but hopefully these work in the opposite direction, too, driving kids to the full books if they love the graphic novel.
