A Dangerous Gift is a great book from the Wings of Fire book series. It gives us readers the perspective of one of the queens, Queen Snowfall as well as look into IceWing culture. It was a bit predictable which is why I only gave it 4 stars, the grumpy untrusting queen turning into a compassionate dragon. But besides this small flaw it is still a wonderful book for fantasy readers.
The visions Queen Snowfall gets are a great way to show readers the perspectives of other dragons who were part of the cliffhanger in the last book, this detail I really liked. I didn't like how the character development was predictable though. I would recommend this book for people the ages of 7 and up. It is a great book for people who want to see animals in a human-like society. The writing is fantastic and makes the readers anticipate for the next book. In conclusion this is a nice book for all types of readers.

A Dangerous Gift is one of my favourite Wings of Fire books. It’s one of the first books to give us insight into the life of a queen, plus more IceWing culture and animus knowledge. The way that we are given knowledge into the Pantalan dragons without being given their direct POV was done well. This book had some tropes and was sort of predictable, it’s still one of my favourites from the newer books.

I feel like ever since the poison jungle was released this series has just... fallen from it's throne of tween books. Tui made the same mistake as the warriors series. after omen of the stars Erin messed it up.

Predictable. It was a predictable book. The character arc was especially predictable-- the conceited paranoid person learning to trust and care. I think I've heard that one before.

I used to really like the Wings of Fire series, but now....

Sutherland is making the same mistake as many authors. The books did well, so she didn't stop. And now the characters and plots are the same.

Books 1-5 were really good. 6-10 were great. But it's all gone downhill from 11 :(

This is a fun read that does further the overall plot and definitely whets your appetite for the next book, but it's not the strongest volume in the series. Snowfall's coming-of-age story is fine, highlighting the importance of empathy, but I simply didn't like her as well as the previous point-of-view characters. Even a below average Wings of Fire book is an enjoyable read, though, and some of the human-related plot points are getting very interesting indeed.

Okay- so I didn't read it yet (#86 on hold), unfortunately, I didn't realize the book was out aaand was really behind. The only reason I knew was my friend told me about it. The cover (as always) is really nice! I read a PDF sample and it was all from Queen Snowfall's perspective. Is the rest of the book like that? Also- are the dragons from Pantala finally gonna come to Pyrrhia? I honestly can't wait to read it- and I'll update the comment when I do :D
(you'd probably already know this but if you didn't read book 11-13, since that's pretty much what you need to read- although you might not understand some parts I'll recommend you read books 1-13 if you can, 11-13 is you can't. Also you should try to read "dragonslayer" first too. and "the legend of Darkstalker" if you want.)

Can't wait for the next book! it's apparently going to be from Luna's perspective, so I am definitely going to request it on the library asap

Snowfall didn't expect to be queen of the IceWings at such a young age, but now that she is, she's going to be the best queen ever. All she has to do is keep her tribe within IceWing territory, where it's safe--while keeping every other tribe out, where they belong. It's a perfect and simple plan, backed up by all the IceWing magic Snowfall can find. That is, until a storm of unidentified dragons arrives on her shore, looking for asylum. The foreigners are completely strange and, Snowfall is certain, utterly untrustworthy. But as she escorts the miserable new tribes out of her kingdom, Snowfall is forced to reconsider her plan. Maybe she can only keep her tribe safe ... if she's willing to risk everything.
