Getting better, getting darker,
This review is from: How to Break a Dragon's Heart: Book 8 (How To Train Your Dragon) (Paperback)
We've been fans of the Hiccup series from day one - we have all the books AND all the audiobooks too (the readings by David Tennant are superb).
This instalment doesn't disappoint - it has excitement, jokes, great dialogue. It also shows how the author is growing as a writer. Some of her descriptions in this books are beautifully poetic, and she deals with matters of tragedy and heartbreak in language that is accessible to young readers without ever dumbing down. Definitely the best in the series so far.
