Summary

The story continues in the ninth volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs read by David Tennant.
Bad times have come to the Archipelago. Ever since the woods of Berserk burned down, it is almost as if the world is cursed. Dragons are starting to revolt against their Masters. The waters have risen, flooding fields and washing whole villages away. But worse still, the wicked witch Excellinor has returned. Can Hiccup find the King's Things and win the sword-fighting contest to stop Alvin the Treacherous from becoming King of the Wilderwest?

Wonderful!

If you could sum up How to Steal a Dragon's Sword in three words, what would they be?

Exciting! Emotional! Roller-coaster!

What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Life.
I have been reading these books since book one but thanks to lack of time I thought I would give the audio book a try for this one. I was not disappointed. David Tennants was a joy to listen to and the accents were brilliant.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both!
Even just reading these books I have found that they have quite an emotional impact on me. Listening to them seemed to make it all the stronger.

For Adults & Children Alike

What did you like most about How to Steal a Dragon's Sword?

While our children have outgrown the books for now, my wife and I are still listening. The books are really wonderful and David Tennant brings the stories to life in a way that is rather magical. I would particularly recommend for long car journeys.

Perfect Book

Children will love it. It is poetic and is all about amazing creatures, and adventures. One of the few books that really gets you thinking what you were doing your whole life without it.

Very well narrated and written. I would recommend this to ages 5-18 as well as the 11 other books about Hiccup (this one is my favourite).

I'd you are looking for a good book, read this, or even better, have it ready to you on Audible.
