The books that inspired the How to Train Your Dragon films! A hit with children and adults alike.

High up in the treacherous mists of the Murderous Mountains, Hiccup and the Company of the Dragonmark are in hiding. The witch's Spydragons are guarding the shores of Tomorrow - but Hiccup is determined to become King of the Wilderwest. Can Hiccup dodge the dragons and steal the King's Things back from Alvin before the Doomsday of Yule? And is there a traitor in Hiccup's camp who in the end will betray them all?

Builds up the tension

This is a great penultimate book, David Tennant is absolutely brilliant, he gives the characters such distinct personalities. The story is tension laden but touching and funny. This is one of the deeper books in the series but is still quite light on the whole.
Pure quality

A great holiday listen for all the family

What made the experience of listening to How to Betray a Dragon's Hero the most enjoyable?

We have followed the adventures of Hiccup on audible from the first story to this the penultimate in the series. David Tennant's reading is a full scale production & helps you to picture all the different characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Toothless is the best for all of us though Hiccup and Kamikaze run a close second.

What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

The whole production is wonderful. David Tennant is excellent and you can easily identify all the different characters

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

We especially love listening to them on long car journeys as they help make the journey bearable especially when stuck in traffic.

Any additional comments?

Sad that the series is nearly finished but also can't wait till the next title is released with David Tennant reading it of course.

A wonderful story beautifully told

This is the 11th of 12 stories, all day f which are beautifully narrated. Do listen to them in order. Things get serious and tense in this one. Probably perfect for age 8 or so, a bit intense for younger children. Inspiring heroics and touching friendships abound. We (adults and children alike) can't wait to listen to the final installment.

Wonderful pairing of narrator and author.

As per usual, David Tennant's narrations of How to Train your Dragon, compliments Cressida Cowells' writing wonderfully. I enjoyed this series as a child, and now as an adult I still find it extremely enjoyable. The story is fantastic, with parts that get very deep especially for a children's book. Though most likely you need to listen to the series from the beginning, as this book will be confusing without doing so. But if you have already listen to the rest of the books, then you will definitely enjoy this one too!
