Being a Hero isn't based on what you do - but who you are.
A great follow up to the first book, it was thoroughly enjoyable getting to know more about Saturday and the rest of the Woodcutter clan.
The only down note? Katherine Kellgren, whom I normally enjoy (especially as the voice of The Royal Spyness series) was just OVERLY strident virtually the whole book. Sorry KK - you're one of my favorite female narrators - just maybe not so much on this book. Maybe we can pass some of that to the director though.
Anyway, swords, magic, dragons and the Woodcutters make for a fun read.

Very Fun Listen, Great Story, Fabulous Narrator
Since others gave already given synopsis of the story, I'll spare that & state this & the 1st book are pure fun to listen to & picking up "The Rest of the Story" Fairy Tale references thoroughly adds to the enjoyment. Alethea Kontis writing gives great word pictures to put you there, watching the action, too.
This, like the Harry Potter series is for a large range of ages. A knowledge of the standard fairy tales is somewhat necessary to get the point. Nowadays, not sure the kids are being told or reading them, but good stories on their own merit anyway.
Katherine Kellgren is, as usual, Absolutely Wonderful! Her ability to make all the character's individual voices brings it all to life.
Highly recommended listen!
