The Book:

From the back of the paperback edition:

The heat is on for Hiccup as he is called to save the day once again. Someone has stolen the Fire-Stone. Now the volcano on Volcano Island has become active and the tremors are hatching the eggs of the Exterminator dragons! Can Hiccup return the Fire-Stone to the Volcano, stop the Volcano from erupting, and save the Tribes from being wiped out by the terrible sword-claws of the Exterminators?

My Thoughts:
As I said last week in my review for the fourth book in this series, these are fabulous road trip audios for us. Our trip to Southern Oregon allowed us to listen to the fourth book on the way down and this on the way home. They kept us entertained the whole way.

I am never surprised see characters from previous books reappear. Sometimes they are characters who are Hiccup’s friends and sometimes they’re not. Either way I enjoy them all.

If you can get over your fear of listening to kid’s books you really should give this series a try. If you have a long boring drive ahead of you this will keep you giggling the whole way. David Tennant is absolutely delightful as the narrator of this series. He just sounds like he’s having fun and it’s infectious.

Start from the beginning because as I mentioned characters reappear and you’ll need to know the history.

3.5 stars Rating 3.5/5 for the book
