Wings of Fire, by Tui Sutherland

In book one, we meet the five "Dragons of Destiny" who have been hidden from power-hungry dragon queens so they may one day fulfill the prophecy and bring peace to the dragon kingdoms. But like all coming-of-age stories, these five young dragons tire of their cramped quarters and attempt to set off into the great big world. Unfortunately, their escape does not go as planned -- they are captured by one of the reigning dragon queens. The dragonets have to call on all their skills and cunning to escape her clutches and continue on their journey. The great thing about this series is that the dragon voices sound like kids -- no complicated language, and the world Sutherland builds seems to just instantly exist. Highly recommended for kids 9+!   Reviewed by Amy from Chestnut
