"Three dragons. One unavoidable, unpredictable destiny. This is the beginning... of the end. In the SeaWing kingdom, a young prince learns he is an animus--capable of wonderful magic that comes with a terrible price. In the mind of a NightWing dragonet, a thousand futures unfold--and almost all of them, she knows, lead to disaster and destruction. And under three full moons and the watchful eyes of his NightWing mother and IceWing father, the most powerful dragon Pyrhhia will ever know is clawing his way out of his egg. Darkstalker, the dragon who will change the world forever. Long before the SandWing war, lifetimes before the Dragonet Prophecy...darkness is born."--Publisher description.

Darkstalker, born a crime by his Animus IceWing father- Prince Arctic, and his NightWing mother- Foeslayer. They were never meant to fall in love, let alone create Darkstalker. Born under full moons and inherited Animus powers, Darkstalker is the most dangerous dragon the world will ever see. As he turns greedy for more power, his soul slowly turns white. It is up to A NightWings called Clearsight, and an Seawing animus- Fathom, to stop him from destroying the world....

The only way darkstalker could get more powerful is if he was born under a blood moon

I'm re-reading this book and I'm about half way through it but, it's amazing! I found that Clearsights' character was a bit annoying at the beginning but then she grew on me, just like I remember last time. Fathom would be my favourite character, I think, highly recommend this book!

SUPER GOOD!!!
Is a bit sad but makes you feel sorry for Darkstalker and understand his backstory better. After reading this book I didn't look at Darkstalker to see him as a terrible murderer but someone who had a hard life and was gifted with magic he couldn't handle.

PS.
Whiteout is interesting to read about though she is different, I like her character.

Darkstalker

This story is cool because it is set 2,000 years before any of the books. It switches perspectives from a NightWing with mind-reading, prophecy, and animus powers. There is also a SeaWing who is an animus, and witnesses a sad and gruesome event at the beginning of the book. This also has the perspective of Clearsight, a NightWing with amazing prophecy powers. This book has different reactions based on the people who read it, but Arctic killing himself is kind of gross, and the ending is really sad. I like this book, but it's a little bit crazy.

If I were Clearsight, I think I would have done what she sis in the book. I thought Darkstalker wasn't evil but he did horrible things I thought he would never do. :( Indigo I though was a nice dragon until she met Darkstalker and had body guard training. She married Fathom in secrecy at the end. YAAAAAAAY :D

Clearsight and Darkstalker seam perfect for each other. When with their hearts set on different futures, things get complicated, and a little scary.
