Growing up in the hives, Cricket has always had a million questions. Why are trees forbidden, even in art? Why do her parents seem to hate her? And the biggest, most dangerous and secret question of all: why is Cricket immune to Queen Wasp's powers? Whenever the queen takes control of all the HiveWings, speaking through their mouths and seeing through their eyes, Cricket has to hide, terrified of being discovered. Now she's hiding again, wanted for stealing the Book of Clearsight along with her new SilkWing friends, Blue and Swordtail, and the fierce LeafWing, Sundew. The fugitives need answers, and fast, in order to prevent a LeafWing attack. But Cricket has more questions than ever. How can she stay hidden and discover the queen's deadliest secret? And if she does succeed can a powerless dragonet really do anything to topple a regime and stop a war?...

The Hive Queen Reviews
Maybe a 2.5 rating but the end kind of brought me around.
Let's start off with what really annoyed me. If I have to hear "not all white people" in the form of "not all hivewings" one more time I will scream! Books can be as fantasy as they wish to be but they still give commentary to our society and the only commentary that a white author has on this subject is her perspective of coming out of her ignorance. This much is clear in this story, Cricket is rising above ignorance and fights to share t ...more
This is the twelfth book in the Wings of Fire series. This was a well done continuation of that series and I enjoyed it. My 11 year old son loves this series and rereads it constantly. I read it mostly because we have both been reading this series for years and it’s fun to talk to him about it.
We are on the Lost Continent, Pantala, again and our dragonets are in hiding and trying to solve the mystery of how Queen Wasp mind controls the HiveWings. Cricket and her friends are hoping to stop the mi ...more
The Hive Queen (Wings of Fire #12) was an amazing book and Tui T. Sutherland has not failed to impress on any of the books in this series. I have been a huge fan of this series for about 4 years now. This book had a little bit of a different approach than the others and I have loved reading about this "hidden continent". One thing I love about this series is that the author connects the dragons to our us in a way. And to them we are these hairless uneducated monkeys called scavengers which I thi ...more
I’m a fan of Tui T. Sutherland’s writing and the Wings of Fire series, but I’ve got to say it — The Hive Queen has been my least favorite book so far. To start off the pacing was really terrible. It felt like half of the book was used describing Cricket waiting in the cave for Blue to come out of his cocoon. The other half was spent describing minuscule details that did not pertain to the story but definitely racked up a word count. The book follows Cricket and her friends on a mission to stop t ...more

This book is from the Best Series in the Entire World. It is about Cricket, a Hive Wing. In the book before (The Lost Continent), Cricket met Blue. Blue was a Silk Wing. At the end of “The Lost Continent,” Blue was in his metamorphosis. (He was born wingless, and at age 6 they go through that.) Now Blue’s sister is gone and Cricket, Blue, Swordtail, and Sun Dew have stolen the Book of Clearsight. The Leaf Wings wanted the book so they could declare war on the Hiv ...more
I heard this on audio during my holidays in India and loved it. Excellent book. Highly recommended.
The gift of imagination is a very powerful gift. It is very strong when you are younger you pretend with your friends that you are pirates or fighting a giant beast. But when you get older some people it may start to fade yet others it may just grow stronger. This is proven by the extraordinary book by the amazing Tui.T. Sutherland. Wings of fire is a very great book series for many reasons, many children and young adults can relate to some of the dragons emotions and actions and can also have a ...more
The Hive Queen was very slow in the beginning, however near the middle it started picking up pace. Tui raises a lot of questions about war through Cricket's perspective. Cricket has to deal with the fact that her tribe killed hundreds of LeafWings in the tree wars and also learn that it was many years ago and not to hold those against the HiveWings.
There's a lot of answers at the end of the book, especially about the Queen's methods.
There has been some hinting to Sundew's relationship ...more
