Publisher's Summary

The Wings of Fire saga continues with a visit to the mysterious land of the NightWings, where Starflight must face a terrible choice - his home, or his friends?
The dragonets of destiny are on their way to see the NightWings - and Starflight doesn't need his psychic powers to know it isn't going to go well.
Starflight knows it's his duty as a NightWing to convince the other dragonets to choose Blister as queen. But he can't help feeling that there's something Morrowseer and the other NightWings aren't telling him, something that could put his friends in grave danger. While other NightWings have their powers to help them, Starflight has to rely on his brain - and with SkyWings chasing them and Queen Burn on their tails, that might not be enough.

Starflight's Chance to Shine

(Mild Spoilers? Not sure. Nothing too severe.)

Okay, Book Two of this series is still my favorite. But "The Dark Secret" has a good lot of merits, too. For one thing, there's Starflight's character development. And the matter of Starflight's parentage gave me one gleeful smile and two horrified face-contortions - you know, just like the other dragonets' did! Then we have the adorable quirks of nearly every dragonet on full display, which really is Tui Sutherland's strength. The resolution made me happy (I ship two entire tribes now - why not!) and the Alternate Dragonets ranged from hilarious (Ochre) and delightful (Fatespeaker) to entertainingly ridiculous caricatures of malice (the rest of them).

Overall, this maybe wasn't as great as the books preceding it. It wasn't bad, not by any means! But a lot of it (not all of it!) felt more like the time in-between big events than something huge itself.

Still, it was great to see Glory acting as Queen.

In any case, I'm getting the next audiobook. The narration is beyond exceptional (never once does it take you out of the story!) and it really makes this Audible version shine.
