Outstanding next chapter in the saga of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III
13 October 2013
We were really looking forward to this instalment as book 9 ended on a bit of a cliff hanger. This book picks up and continues to take us on the roller coaster of emotions as we plummet head long to the final chapter in Hiccups memoirs. The book is well paced to keep younger readers hooked and the adventure comes thick and fast. The writer has built a really beautiful mix of characters through out the series and the situations that develop allow the reader to explore some complex themes. The redemption of a lost soul in this volume is both moving and exceptionally well written. In many ways the reader is left with a charming dilemma, the need to read on while realising that the end is neigh. My son and I can't for the next book, but it will be the last. For Thors sake, what will we do then?
