    1. OMG I finally got it, can't wait to read it!!! ************************************************After three months of weekly visits to the bookstores only to find that they still didn't have this book in stock, I could barely contain my excitement when I finally found it, on my birthday, coming back from the mall and stopping by the Bookworm before going home. It was on the shelf, with the rest of the How to Train Your Dragon books, as though it had been there all along.It saddened me that the ne [...]


    2. And now we are into the last 4 books which are more a part of each other, sequentially following a storyline rather than each book being concluded in itself. The Dragons have declared war on the humans and Hiccup is at his lowest ebb ever, though accompanied by 3 dragons who show the greatest of loyalty to him, as does Fishlegs and, after a brief failure to do so, Camicazi returns to fidelity. Surely we all want to believe in dragons? By now my only concern is.when did they die out and was Hiccu [...]

    4. This was an amazing book and by far the best of the Hiccup series!!!! I loved the characters, especially the witch! I thought it was written extremely well with just the right amount of humour. I was crying by the end of it.The witch was an brilliant villain throughout the book; she was far more evil than Alvin, just as smart as Hiccup and it was enjoyable to see the two winning small victories for themselves (in all the other books the main villain had the upper hand until the end of the story) [...]


    5. This is both the best and the worst of the series so far. It's the best because as Hiccup grows (he's 13 now), his character becomes more complex, as does the heroics he needs to accomplish. It's the worst we've moved on from silly Viking games and contests to the absolute worstwar. And not silly Viking war, but war with dragons--some of the very characters we've come to love. This installment is darker, sadder, and harder to read than the others. We've become accustomed to watching Hiccup trium [...]


    6. A Hero cannot triumph allthe time.Sometimes he will be defeated, and how he faces that defeat is a test of his character.And now Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third had been defeatedHe had lost everything.I am exploding from feels.This is an incredibly horrible thing because none of my other close friends have read the HTTYD series, so I cannot rant off my emotions to someone else.So expect a lot of explosions here. Book one of the How to Train Your Dragon series began rather glibly and lighthea [...]


    7. I almost didn't give this 5 stars, because it pissed me off towards the end. And yet. was really good!Hiccup was saving people left and right. He discovered how all his adventures have led to these moments and his collection of Hooligan artifacts come in handy. He won a sword fight championship and was finally ready and willing to lead, in order to affect the change he desired and save both man and dragon. But.Stupid Snotlout, Alvin & his idiotic mother ruined eveything! Everyone turned on [...]


    8. Darker times have fallen on the Archipelago, and more truth is spilling outd it's more dangerous.Something has been building behind the awesome Hiccup series the whole time and I finally realize the moral of the story. Growing up. It's hard to grow up! Cressida Cowell shows this in her imaginative world of Vikings and dragons.I will make a list of of what might(and I want to)happen.1. Hiccup will have his FINAL battle with the seemingly immortal Alvin. And make it EPIC! 2.The Dragon Stone will b [...]


    9. I started reading this series about a year ago and I absolutely love it. The latest installment in the series did not disappoint and it's great to see how the writing has changed and matured as the readers have.I've been getting just a bit tired of Alvin as the villain and I was extremely pleased to see him take a bit of a back seat in this story. I found the ending pleasantly surprising, it's definitely the most depressing of all the books so far and just one of many indications that the books [...]



    10. You know, I know I haven't typed out reviews for all of these books, though I've loved them all. When I started reading these, I thought they'd be a cute read about a little Viking boy and his dragon. Let me just say, I teared up. There's this one really emotional part that I never imagined would be in these pages. I have never, that I can remember, cried at a book. Until now. If you have never read these books, I urge you with all the vehemence I can muster. Read them. I promise, you won't be s [...]


    11. The 9th book in the How to Train Your Dragon book is my favourite book of the series so far! It was a story about growing up and realising that every experience you had led you to some point in time where you were truly needed. This had me smiling the entire time as the story line was just so good! Cowell actually had a more mature narrative and used more writing techniques that I appreciate as it just enhanced the story line and really drove home the lesson contained within this book. This has [...]





    12. AudioBook Review:Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5Coming to the end of this lovely series, I certainly will miss it. Fortunately, although there are currently just 10 titles produced in Audio, I have been told that book 11 (to wrap up the series) is slated to go into production in the spring of 2015. So I don’t yet have to say goodbye to this clever fantasy. By this installment of the series, you will have needed to follow along, too many ongoing situations and unresolved issues come to a c [...]


    13. Hiccup III, as a Viking boy on Berk island, precedes these memoirs with scratchy heads of cast, list of chapter titles. Hoorah, previews, entertains, sums up. "1. The Greatest Day of Your Life (not).27 5. Something Nasty in the Cauldron .102". More drawings sprinkle throughout. Ink blotches, splotches; letters tip around. Arch-villain Alvin the Treacherous is back, stronger, swift at swordplay, shiny metal nose instead of wood. His mother, Witch Excellinor, plots for her son to rule the tribes. [...]


    14. At the end of the last book the Dragon Furious had disappeared and Hiccup was enjoying the very relative peace of the year after which the great dragon had sworn to return at the head of a Dragon Rebellion which would see them exterminate the human race.As it turns out, dragons don't seem to be great time keepers as Furious is late - but the rest of it seems true enough. This volume seems to presage the end of the series and The End as there is only one more and this ends on even more of a cliff [...]


    15. I believe these books are getting better. Well, a lot more bad things are happening to Hiccup, and that makes the books more exciting.Plus, Hiccup is growing up, and books seem to be getting a little more serious. I just hope it all turns out okay in the end.Unlike the other books, this book did't have a happy ending. It was sorta left cliff hanging. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book. What I really loved in this book, and the last book How to Break a Dragon's Heart, was how I g [...]


    16. The book How to Steal a Dragon's Sword by Cressida Cowell is a book about a boy named Hiccup and his dragon Toothless trying to win a sword fighting competition. First it starts out with hiccup and an epic battle between man and beast. But of course man won. But yes this is a very good book filled with lots of action and adventure and suspense. So I would recommend this book to anyone who likes those kinds of books.


    17. Buch 9, Hörbuch gelesen von David TennantDiesem Buch "muss" ich tatsächlich 5 Sterne geben, da ich es noch besser als die vorherigen fand. Die Story wird immer "erwachsener" und war durchweg fesselnd. Um die Drachen-Rebellion zu verhindern, muss Hiccup "King of the Wilderwest" werden und dazu einen Schwert-Wettkampf gewinnen und eine verschollene Krone finden.


    18. The first book that felt like it was encroaching on adult themes a promising development.[3 stars for seeing characters start to deal with an uncomfortable world - where bad things happen, and the danger is a little more real than the fairy tale of books previous.]


    19. Favorite quote that kind of sums up this book "a hero cannot triumph all the time. Sometimes he will be defeated, and how he faces that defeat is a test of his character." What a cliffhanger! Can't wait for the next one!


    20. Another amazing book by this author. This one was actually really emotional for me, I'll admit that I started crying at the end. Anyway, I recommend this series to the max. (it's really good!)


    21. Just might be my favourite so far! at least one of them! I love this (kind of) darker turn the series has taken now, through this book. Can't wait to read the next one!



    22. This is ninth in the series, and by far the best so far! Do we have to wait long for the next one, Ms. Cowell?


    23. It's a lot more ominous then others in the series, but still just as adventurous, imaginative, and breakneck-paced as ever. Tons of surprises and lots of action makes it a great choice for all ages.


    24. 4.5 starsThis series is really picking up again. I remember being vaguely disappointed when I read the eighth book, not because I disliked it or anything, but because I felt that the plot threads had taken too many books to start coming together. I wished that they had done so a bit earlier in the series. I think it was during the seventh book when I started to wonder if there really was an end-game in sight for the series, or if it was doomed to be one of those children's series that never real [...]


    25. "This is a Hiccup story, and if I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times: This is the story of becoming a Hero the hard way." (Cowell 278). Cressida Cowell does an excellent job adding another fantastic read to the already great series. This quote greatly describes Hiccup because he is always facing insurmountable obstacles in order to become a hero. This book unites all the other stories by bringing back important events which happened in each and their effect in this novel. The plot [...]
