People aren't black and white and Cowell's understanding of character growth is one of the things that really makes this series stand out as one of the best. And I'm not qualifying that as "one of the best middle grade series," I'm saying it's one of the best series I've ever read. The depth, emotion, and personal insight in chapter 17 and the beauty of the epilogue are things that will stay with me for a long time - something a 5 star book should always be able to do.

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, friendship, and sacrifice still exist in the books and to an even greater extent. That's what drew me to the movie. That's what continues to draw me to the series. I absolutely love this series. I cannot wait until book 12 comes out. I will wait in line I may even attend a release party. 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 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. Cowell and these books: humor, quirkiness, excitement, action, and a whole lot of heart.
In the beginning, we are introduced to the Island of Tomorrow, pretty much the place of the prophecy heretofore discussed.

The ticking thing is ticking, leaving only a matter of days before a King must be crowned and the race is on to get all the Lost Things together and have them accepted by the Island's blindfolded Guardian that's a detail I loved. Again, I found it a little too much plot too fast, but I still think many a reader will enjoy it all the more because. Here is one scuffle or skirmish right after another for all characters involved. It wasn't quite as funny as prior books, but makes up for it in sheer excitement and adventure. Not to mention its attention to certain characters before glossed over I recommend a box of tissues if you're really into the characters So it looks like there is one more book, but this sure presents plenty of delectable story in a penultimate way.
Those who appreciate Cowell's amazing storytelling talents that just grab at the heart will find this does not disappoint.

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 many authors of this age group tend to avoid with their main characters.

I also found there were connections between this book and the film, which makes me wonder how similar the two series are going to be by the time they are both completed. I was glad to see more Camicazi in this book - you have no idea how much I love her character. Also, there is an interesting revelation about Toothless, which I'm wondering whether it's true or not, and we shall hopefully see in the next book whether I'm being too skeptical.
But I need to talk about Snotlout. He goes through some major character development in this book, and I never thought I would go from hating him to loving him during the course of this book. Oct 29, Kaitlyn rated it it was amazing. 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 heart or anything but no.
This book is a really fast read I mean I can read a page book in a day easy but even then I had to stop do something else for a while and this book my only thought was hiccup hiccup and read I finished it in maybe an hour and a half oh!!!!!!! Cressida Cowel please make the last book come out earlier i am dying to read it Happy Reading!!! Aug 21, King Haddock rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , favorites , fandom , books-i-own.
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! Spoiler ahead. I don't care how it's done - isn't Incredibly beautiful writing. I don't care how it's done - isn't it just a concept that should not be handled in a middle reader level book? But still.
That question definitely popped into my head. Apr 27, Anita Tamm rated it it was amazing. Brilliant, as ever. 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. The hardships of a hero "A hero is forever, the good actions of a hero never die, I love that this book somehow managed to bring back my 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 Brilliant, as ever.
Hiccup, in this book, is the main ebodiment? I love that. Toothless in this book. So sad and adorable. It's 1. I better go to sleep But I can't decide - do I want to listen to the next one, as I have done with the last 7 books except the 6th because David Tennant or do I read the physical copy since I have the hardcover? Gosh I love this story. Jan 31, Doss rated it it was amazing.

That cliffhanger though!!! Mar 21, Julie rated it really liked it. Another great installment in the Hiccup and Toothless saga. Here's my little summary: view spoiler [ Hiccup and his friends rescue Snotlout and then follow him to Alvin's lair where he betrays Hiccup and Alvin gets ahold of Toothless and therefore now has all 10 things.
Hiccup's friends however have not been discovered and they save him and also make him look like quite the hero in front of all of Alvin's men and some of the Dragonmarkers who are prisoners including Gobber. Hiccup almost manages Another great installment in the Hiccup and Toothless saga. Hiccup almost manages to steal the 10 things unknowingly shoving his Mom off the ship when she was just about to steal them but loses them after Snotlout makes a huge turnaround and then flies off to save Hiccup and gets himself killed.
Alvin takes the 10 things to the island of Tomorrow and is accepted by the Guardian.
