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.

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!

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.

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!

For anyone who likes a good time

I bought the first book on a whim. It made me giggle and I got the second right away. It was even more fun. Yes it’s for children, but what’s the harm of being a kid for a bit , even if you’re really old.

A great story. It flows smoothly.

this book is a wonderous novel. the story flows perfectly, not lingering to long on any certain part. David Tennet does a wonderful job with the different voices for the characters.
