Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of How to Train Your Dragon comes an exciting high-adventure series - set in a magical time, full of Wizards, Warriors, Giants, and Sprites.

This was once the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who had been taught since birth to hate each other like poison.

But now, the boy Wizard and girl Warrior have been brought together in the Badwoods and they have witnessed the shocking consequences of the Stone That Takes Away Magic. They will need to cast aside their differences once more - for an Evil Spell has broken free.

It's up to Xar and Wish to find the ingredients. But it means entering dangerous territory unannounced...

Cressida Cowell brings her trademark wit to this spellbinding sequel, weaving a story that is sure to transport listeners to a world that will enchant and bewitch them.

Wonderful for all ages!!

As always Cressida Cowell has done it again! Such a marvelous addition to a wonderful new, budding series. Full of twists and turns and fun characters and wise life lessons for all ages. I just can’t get enough of Cressida Cowell’s stories and fantastic worlds. And of course, David Tennant knocked ‪it‬ out of the park with his acting-more-than-speaking narration!! Delightful through and through!

This is an AWESOME and Amazing book! Cressida Cowell and David Tennant have done a BRILLIANT job AGAIN! And I can not wait to read along with the audio the sequel. I am already ready for the third installment when it comes out later this year or next year. But in the mean time I can re-read this AMAZING story again and again until then. The auther is BRILLIANT! And if you haven't read her other series of books then you are missing out! Because they are beautiful, fun and filled with magic all around! Also if you have not discovered her other series How to Train your Dragon then please do because it's BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL and it will become one of your ALL-TIME CLASSIC STORIES!

47 and 9 year old loved it!!!

This was our first experience reading a book written by Cressida Cowell. In addition to the positive storyline and flawed characters, who improve due to the many influences of the group... we couldn't help love the audiobooks... even though the book has wonderful illustrations to encourage the reader to turn another page and read onward. Anxious for the release of book four this fall!! The high interest books can be finished in a few days... so my daughter will be pained to wait for the next book..

A very well crafted world.

This series has drawn me into its world. I think the audio version has enhanced that effect. The little songs help create a more full, rounded world rather in the manner of Tolkien. I would recommend this book to older children and adults. It is a wonderful fantasy story.

Awesome!

My 8 year old and I have been devouring and loving this series. If you've enjoyed series like The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates and Harry Potter, you'll probably enjoy this too

The Fun Continues!

I love these books so much I've listened to them multiple times. They are so much fun! David Tennant is a brilliant narrator with a wide range of voices and, of course, fantastic acting. Magic, adventure, giants, spoons, flying doors, and well written prose. This series is now one of my favorites!

Great second book

This was a great continuation of the first story. It filled in some details on secondary characters which was nice to fill out the world a bit more. Again, the narration was amazing - leaving me to say that when my children read this book I will actually have them listen!
