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.

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

One of our all-time favorite series

My 1st grade daughter and I equally enjoy this series of books. The story and humor are so fun. And I think the audiobooks in this series are THE BEST audiobook performances I have ever experienced. David Tennant + the sound/music team are just spectacular. I have recommended this series to both friends with and without kids. Such a gem!

Dragon mania!

My children have been listening to the entire series of How to Train your Dragon and I've heard bits and pieces of each story. But this volume is getting more serious. I actually would not let them listen to it without me! Captivating story which ends with the biggest cliffhanger of the series so far compelling us to get the 10th book ASAP. So in summary it was thoroughly enjoyed by a 5, 6 and 38 year old.

Getting more interesting

This book has a lot of twists and turns. It’s also getting darker. The villain is still alive. This book didn’t end the way that I expected. It’s actually a bit disappointing
