  • "A family favourite"

    Overall

    I cannot recommend these books highly enough. They have made long car journeys with young children fly by as we were all immersed into the viking world of Hiccup and his friends. The narration by David Tennant is remarkable. His voices bring the characters to life with some gorgeous regional accents (the Bog Burglers especially). We bring the ipod in from the car to finish the stories off in the kitchen they are so good.

    Hiccup was a truly extraordinary Viking Hero, Warrior chieftain,awesome sword-fighter and amateur naturalist. He was known throughout Vikingdom as 'the Dragon Whisperer' on account of his power over these terrifying beasts. But it wasn't always like that.

    When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.
