The Dragonet Prophecy is the very first book in the Wings of Fire series and the only one to feature a MudWing as the protagonist. It features Clay as the main character.
Clay and his friends have grown up under a mountain, secretly raised by the Talons of Peace to fulfill a mysterious prophecy. The five young dragons are destined to end the war that's been raging between the tribes of Pyrrhia — but how they'll do this, none of them knows.
But not every dragonet wants a destiny. When one of their own is threatened, Clay and his friends decide to escape. Maybe they can break free and end the war at the same time — or maybe they'll risk everything...
Hvitur is trying to escape SkyWing territory with the egg of the SkyWing prophecy dragonet. He is caught by Princess Burn and two of her guards. Burn asks him what he was doing with the egg and realises that he is a part of the Talons of Peace. She throws the egg off the cliff, stabs Hvitur with her barbed tail, and throws him off as well, killing both him and the unborn dragonet.
Some time later Kestrel comes and looks at the dead body of Hvitur and the broken egg. She goes into the caves under the mountains and tells Webs that Hvitur and the SkyWing dragonet are both dead. Webs tells her that Asha, another guardian, is dead too. Kestrel suggests that they should abandon the prophecy plan, but Webs convinces her and says he will get a RainWing egg to replace the SkyWing.
