Spoiler Alert!
This article contains plot details about the recently released book, Darkness of Dragons. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.

There are a number of mistakes within the Wings of Fire series, varying from spelling errors to plot holes.

Plot and Logic Inconsistencies Edit

First Arc Edit

  • In the first chapter of The Dragonet Prophecy, Clay is fighting Kestrel and then Tsunami steps in. Afterwards, Kestrel says that she'll mark another failure in his scroll. There is no other mention of this scroll later on.
  • Also, in the first chapter of The Dragonet Prophecy, Clay says he thinks his ribs are broken, but Tsunami says that dragon bones are almost as hard as diamonds. But then in The Lost Heir when Tsunami is fighting Orca's Statue, it steps on her and breaks her ribs. However, this may be because the statue was enchanted to have supernatural strength.
  • In The Lost Heir, Tsunami once thinks "on the other hand...". This expression is noticeably changed to "on the other talon" in later books, and is especially conspicuous because scavenger hands are referred to as paws and the word "hand" does not seem to exist.
  • In The Lost Heir, when Tsunami is in the underwater hatchery, she whispers to Auklet's egg, even though she was underwater and talking out loud shouldn't be possible.
  • In The Hidden Kingdom, during the royal challenge, the sloth knew where Glory was and "bolted" for the tree. Sloths are supposed to be really slow creatures that can't move very fast.
  • In The Brightest Night, Peril vanishes from the narrative after saving Clay in the climax- there's no mention of her leaving and she's not spoken of again until the epilogue.

Second Arc Edit

  • In Talons of Power, when Turtle is looking for Anemone, he whispers "Anemone. Where is my sister?" to his finding coral, even though he was underwater and talking out loud shouldn't be possible.
  • In Moon Rising, Moonwatcher was able to carry Bandit, Winter's pet scavenger, in of her talons and is able to hold the entire scavenger. In Winter Turning, Bandit was noted to be a lot smaller than Winter. According to the portrait of Flower and Smolder on the back of Winter Turning books, scavengers are the same size as 4 or 5 year-old dragonets. Throughout the books, Winter is noted to be able to carry his pet in a "small cage" around. But in The Dragonet Prophecy, right after Clay escaped the mountain, he found a scavenger that he said was about as tall as a full grown dragons' head. That is not shown in the portrait of Flower and Smolder.
  • In the prologue of Escaping Peril, Chameleon takes off the Pyrite necklace even though the enchantment said, "4) Compelled to wear this necklace at all times with life-or-death urgency". He could have changed it later, but no mention of this is ever made.
