Tsunami believes she is a long, lost sea dragon princess, the last royal female sea dragonet, and now that she and her friends have escaped their Skywing prison, she is finally going to see her kingdom and reunite with her tribe! But once there, with all her dreams seemingly come true, a disillusioned Tsunami realizes that the Kingdom of the Sea isn't quite what she expected, and she may not belong there after all. First, Tsunami has a major deficit in her education that she's just finding out about, and because of it, she may not be able to communicate properly with her fellow sea dragons. Second, she discovers, with surprise, that she is NOT the last royal female sea dragonet! She has a one-year old sister who is being bred for the throne and is literally attached to their mother, Queen Coral, day and night. And then there's that secret about her father Tsunami desperately wishes wasn't true, and that her mother may have her put to death for!
While the first Wings of Fire book introduced me to the world Pyrrhia, and revolved around Clay's story and his perspective, The Lost Heir took me to a new area, the Kingdom of the Seawings, and continued the story, focusing on Tsunami. I was genuinely sad for Tsunami when her story didn't work out quite like the fairy tale she thought was based on her, but ever-ready and ever-confident Tsunami was quickly able to switch gears and set her priorities straight, like the true leader she is, and always was, regardless of title. I highly recommend this audiobook to new Wings of Fire fans, although I feel like this series is definitely one to read in order so make sure to read or listen to The Dragonet Prophecy first. The audiobook version read by Shannon McManus is fantastic, clear sound and McManus gives each dragon a unique voice which makes the listening experience even better. Listen while cleaning your room, doing the dishes, or get the whole family to journey to Pyrrhia during a long car ride! And, this audiobook is available on hoopla so you don't have to wait!
