Publisher's Summary

The How to Train Your Dragon series chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Viking underdog Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his dragon, Toothless. In Book 9, a dragon rebellion is coming - filled with the meanest, nastiest dragons in the Archipelago. Razor-wings, Tonguetwisters, and Vampire Ghouldeaths are attacking Vikings and seem to be seeking one soul in particular: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third! Only a King can save them...and only a champion with all of the King's Lost Things can be King. In his adventures, Hiccup has collected quite a few "things" himself. But can a scrawny Viking save the entire Archipelago from certain doom? To find out, Hiccup will have to outwit a witch, fight his arch-enemy, and beat back an army of bloodthirsty dragons with just one sword.

    Story
    "It has to be David Tennant"
    If you could sum up How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword in three words, what would they be?

    At this stage, it is getting somewhat predictable and it is David Tennant's performance to makes me listening.


    If you’ve listened to books by Cressida Cowell before, how does this one compare?

    As good


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

    The characters come alive. Every one is different and I can recognize the characters as they go from book to book

    Story
    "Almost a King."

    This story is a bit darker, but it still has its humor. Things have gone down a very bad road. What is going to happen to the Vikings, now that the dragon rebellion has begun? What is going to happen to Stoick and Fishlegs? This book is right on the cusp of a new adventure for hiccup. Must read more. I recommend this series to all who love a good children's book. I love David Tennet's voice, he is one of my favorite narrators.

    Story
    "Getting heavy but still entertaining"
    Would you listen to How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword again? Why?

    Absolutely! I'd listen again. So would my 6-year-old daughter.


    What other book might you compare How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword to and why?

    All of the "How to Train..." books are great for listening.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    David Tennant does an amazing Scottish brogue. He also is good at voicing different characters. I especially like his take on Fishlegs. So funny!


    Any additional comments?

    By the end of the series, things are getting dark, indeed. As the author says. But it's worth listening.
    BTW, Cressida Cowell is my new favorite author. There's no other "voice" in the business quite like hers. For the fart, hairy armpit and odor jokes, alone, she's worth reading.
    If I could sit down over dinner with any author, she'd be my choice. I'll bet she's just fun to joke around with. She and my daughter would have a blast together. They'd probably fall on the floor laughing.

    Story
    "Darker, sadder, stronger"
    Would you listen to How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword again? Why?

    Definitely; I've listened to the whole series twice already.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In a series that has been on the whole a lighthearted and cheerful and adventurous romp, this book takes a turn for the darker. This is the first one of Hiccup's memoirs that made me cry, and is full of strong character moments.


    Have you listened to any of David Tennant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    These are consistently some of the best-narrated audiobooks I've ever heard. I still don't know how he does the voices, with every character distinct but recognizable. And he's got a masterful sense of emotional timing, which was particularly relevant in this story. The only downside is that the musical accompaniment for the songs didn't seem to be quite timed to the performance in this volume.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but it's a spoiler. Go Fishlegs.


    Any additional comments?

    Just go ahead and buy How to Steal a Dragon's Jewel now. This ends on the sort of cliffhanger you *will* want to keep going from. And although you don't have to have read/listened to *all* of Hiccup's memoirs to make sense of this, you'll need to have read at least a few to make sense of this book.
