I'm so in love with this series. I know it's the heat of the moment but I genuinely like this series more than Harry Potter right now, and I don't say that lightly. The books have a more childish tone, and it's a good thing, it fits, it works with the story. Hiccup and his friends are a lot younger than Harry. But in these last few books, they've dealt with situations that no kids their age should have to deal with, and wow, have they done it well. Snotlout's arc in this story is forever going t ...more

I want to start this review by saying that I do not give out my 5 stars easily. I give them out like I only have so many and when I'm out I'll never get another. I've read more than 600 books, many many of them ones I've loved and reread and recommended like crazy, but only gave 3 or 4 stars to. I've given that 5th star out to just around 10% of books I've read.

Chapter 17 alone makes this book deserve that 5th star.

Something that irritates me in a lot of books, whether they are for children, y

After falling in love with HTTYD2 the movie, I read all eleven books of HTTYD in seven weeks. At first, already knowing a few of the spoilers, I wondered if I would enjoy the books. How could Toothless be so small and common? Why wouldn't there be a love story with Astrid? How could a dragon jewel exist with the ability to destroy all of the dragons?

Yet in the midst of reading ... I came to understand and I fell in love with the books even more than the movie. The same elements of loyalty, frien

Though I must admit I was a little exasperated to learn this is STILL not the last book, I read this with as much gusto as I enjoyed the previous books in the series. Ms. Cowell's storytelling and writing skills are as strong as ever, making this a thoroughly enjoyable novel that is certain to please current fans. Though I felt this had a little too much plot in too little time, in general this is just what I've come to expect from Ms. Cowell and these books: humor, quirkiness, excitement, actio ...more

In this book, we follow Hiccup as he and his small team of supporters try to regain the Lost Things back from Alvin the Treacherous and his mother, all whilst trying to avoid the Dragon Furious.

This book is basically setting up for the final installment, but it has more than enough action and twists to keep you from getting bored. What I love most about these books is that Cowell is not afraid to let Hiccup fail (after all, he is learning how to be a hero the hard way) which is something that ma

This book way amazing!! at the beginning of the series I really hated snotlout because of how arrogant he was but after he died I was really upset. Now that I think about I'm sure anyone would feel the way he did when hiccup was born. Like he was just cast aside.
When Alvin got the lost things and get to Tomorrow I was so sure that the guardian was going to say that there was something wrong like the dragon was suppose to come willingly or that he had darkness in his

Incredibly beautiful writing. So much emotion. So well-expressed.

I never thought I would become so invested in a "kid's" book. I have not cried like that for a book for a long time.

This is certainly the most intense book in the series thus far (I am waiting for a dramatic conclusion with #12, though!). In fact, the intensity came to such a level I *do* have one moral question.

(Spoiler ahead).

Is it morally permissible to compose a TORTURE SCENE in a kid's book? I don't care how it's done - isn't

Brilliant, as ever. (as I hear david tennant say)

1. I absolutely adore Snotlout's story arc. It's simply so good. I have no excellent words to describe how amazing it is. A hero is forever.
2. The hardships of a hero "A hero is forever, the good actions of a hero never die, ..." - this hits home for me. I love that this book somehow managed to bring back my 12-year old self to my mind. It reminded me of exactly how much I adore and worship the idea of a "true hero". Hiccup, in this book, is the m

Just awesome! Impeccable writing? Check. Humour? Check. Good plot with everything coming together at the end even though not always in the favour of the characters? Check.

I like how there is nothing that makes you think: "Hey! That couldn't happen to Y because then X would just swoop in and do this or that." You know what I mean?

Instead everything that is laid out at the beginning fits with everything else in the end, like: "No, X had to go to that other place in order to that thing that let to

This is the second last novel in the How to Train your Dragon series. At the beginning of the book, we find out who among Hiccup will betray him and who would stay loyal and protect him. This novel was almost 400 pages long however, in the book it was only 24 hours that had passed. A LOT can happen in 24 hours and a LOT does happen in this book. There was a lot of twists and turns that made the storyline so interesting that you just NEEDED to know what was going to happen next. There was also to ...more

This is the only one I physically read in the series - I mean my library had only first 10 audiobooks, and I was so immersed in the series that I checked it out and continued reading.

It is a brilliant and wonderful book as many of its predecessors in the series, but the things are really tightening up as the events of the last three or two books are packed with action within a very narrow time-frame.

The illustrations were lovely, and the humor was sparkling, and the story was exciting on so ma
This book was one of the best of the series, without a doubt. I won't say too much, in order not to spoil anything, but a lot was revealed in this book, about Toothless, about the Wodensfang, about Snotlout, and much more. The end is packed with tension; what will be the outcome of the final fateful day before the crowning of the King of the Wilderwest? What will happen to the dragon Furious, and all the rest of the dragons?
The epilogue was bittersweet, and I liked the message that a hero is for

I am still obsessed with this series. 11 books and I still can't get enough, so I'm so sad that the next is the last. I love even in the darkest times for the characters the books still keep their charm, humor, adventure, and motto of "becoming a hero the hard way". I absolutely love the dragons, and having read the epilogues, I know something dreadful is going to happen and am so worried. I've grown attached to the dragons. I love how the series has matured since it's beginning, and am glad the ...more

Reader thoughts: I accidentally read this one before #10, but I didn't realize it and was barely confused. I just thought the gap between books had skipped a couple things.

I love that Hiccup didn't recognize his mother. It makes up for her not recognizing him earlier. I love that the hiding places were so secret. I love that everything Excellinor and Alvin do only make Hiccup into more and more of a hero and legend (like letting him choke under freezing water for 8 minutes and forcing him to bet

This book is so far the most touching book I've ever read in the series. Throughout the series, Cowell has left clues in all of the books, waiting to unravel them in the end, letting the readers suspect but no quite grab the answer;making them wanting to keep reading.

What I like about Cowell is that she fills her books with surprises, Cliffhangers and sharp turns. So it was a bit unexpected when she revealed a bit too much in the blurb. As the blurb says, it seems clear that someone would betra

The story "How to Betray a Dragon's Hero" by Cressida Cowell is the story in which on of the antagonists, Snotlout's, true feelings come out. He not only betrays both the villains and the heros, but he has lost his whole family, friends, and life. "I've lost everything!"(Cowell, 266). From this, you can tell that Snotlout is not just feeling bad about it, but he is not trusted by anyone and that is why he can't even show which side that he is on. The reason that he joined the villains side in t ...more

This book continues the adventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Second. In this book, he must become the king of the Wilderwest and dodge the witches Vampire Spydragons and steal the king’s things back from Alvin before the Doomsday of Yule.

This is book 11 in the How to Train Your Dragon series.

“Come on, Fishlegs,” whispered Camicazi, whistling happily. “You know we have to do this. Besides, I feel like a bit of exercise. We’ve been cooped up in that hideout for way too long.”
Frankly, at this point, Camicazi had grown so fed up that if Hiccup had suggested hang gliding off the toe-talons of the dragon Furious she’d have been up for it.
“A bit of exercise?” blustered Fishlegs. “A bit of exercise? This is not some kind of Viking version of Girls Keep Fit!”
