    1. Prophecies Selfish dragons Human sacrifice Tree dungeons Wooden noses Dragons with half broken hearts Aspiring poets Witches Ghosts Youthful optimism Lobster pots.After reading this book over the course of a few hours a simple task, it being a children s book , these are some of the memories that stand out How to Break a Dragon s Heart was a satisfying addition to the series, and fabulously redirects the entire trajectory of the plot It was the epilogue, however, that shattered me somehow I was [...]

    2. The Hairy Hooligans National Anthem I didn t mean to come here,And I didn t mean to stay,It s just where the sea wind blew me,One accidental day I don t know why but it sounds so good to me that I want to sing it Fishlegs sings this song in front of the whole tribe of BERSERKS and the question of his identity suddenly becomes clear to him I was a little bummed out that his real parentage still wasn t revealed but the mystery of where he came from was one of the things that added a layer of depth [...]

    3. First read November 28 2011Second read March 19 2014I freaking love the How To Train Your Dragon series It s campy, it s cheesy, it s utterly implausible, and it s hilarious with a capital H I L A R I O U S And yet, it has the unique capability to be thought provoking and touching at times How To Break A Dragon s Heart is no different unless it s even better than the rest The premise by now is familiar something happens, Hiccup and Toothless save the day against all odds, Hiccup learns a little [...]

    4. What I liked about this book was there was a lot stories within the actual plot line and they all bled into each other and created a really unique and interesting story I enjoyed the way some of the stories were told as they were kind of different and set them apart from the others The last few chapters got me really looking forward to the stories in the next books and I can t wait to read them

    5. I was just sort of thinking that this series should be running out of interest by now 8 or 9 books read and just for children Then I read this one and it was the best of them all So.once Cressida Colell palls, I will let you know but, for now, she s as good as ever

    6. I was admittedly surprised to find myself liking this book as much as I did, especially in lieu of it being mostly devoid of the wit and hilarity of Camicazi, but I m apparently a fan of a ghost stories told by cantankerous witches imprisoned in large tree trunks b stories featuring unexpected cameos by Humongously Hotshot The Hero c Fishlegs going berserk d whenever Camicazi gets to fightyone e Cowell relinquishing the need to wrap everything up neatly with a peaceful bow F ALL OF THE ABOVE Thr [...]

    8. Reader thoughts Oops, I missed reviewing this one right after I read it No problem, I remember it well enough How can I forget the outlandish adventures Hiccup has had Tree prisons are brilliant There s no lock for Camicaze to pick, and there s no guard for Excellinor to trick I think this is where we first meet Furious I didn t realize he would have such a big role to play Come to think of it, I didn t realize how big a role ALL of the characters would have, even down to Grimbeard the Ghastly a [...]

    12. AudioBook ReviewStars Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5 The story of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, continues on, with this story carrying plot and background information for Hiccup than in any of the earlier stories Yes, there is an adventure and a chance for Hiccup to use his brain and a bit of luck to save his friends, but this story has a mixed result, foreshadowing the future in ways that earlier books didn t Hiccup is presented with the story of the prophecy, and how he came to get his name S [...]

    13. How to Break a Dragon s Heart How 8 by Cressida Cowell is the darkest nightmare, and maybe most imaginatively complex yet, of beyond hilarious lavishly illustrated memoirs by Viking Hooligan heir red shock hair Hiccup III He seeks missing Bog Burglar heir blonde tangle Camicaze, trapped in an inescapable forest of hollow prison trees The bloodstained throne of ancestor Grimbeard washes ashore in a storm and revives the betrayal disaster that dissolved his unified empire into warring tribes The K [...]

    14. I do believe that there s plot progression in this single book than in all of the previous books combined Wow Justwow.This book tells the story of Hiccup s ancestor, Grimbeard the Ghastly the one whose treasure was the main plot point of the second book in the series , uncovers Grimbeard s throne, which is heavily tied to the prophecy mentioned by Norbert the Nutjob, tells the story of Hiccup the First and Second, explains what the name Hiccup means, explains about Hiccup s family tree, goes in [...]

    15. I admit, I was a little worried after the seventh book because it wasn t my favorite and I wondered if they were going to slowly decline in quality After this latest installment, I am not worried This may be one of the best ones yet It involves viking love poetry, ghosts, kidnappings, fiances real and pretend , a girl named Tantrum O Ugerly who is in love with the fiance before the fiance before last , a dragon with revenge in half its heart and the return of Hiccup s arch nemesis Has Hiccup s H [...]

    16. Wow, oh wow This was definitely the best and most exciting in the series so far Camicazi goes missing, and on the journey to find her, the Hooligan gang run into a whole other set of troubles to contend with Fishlegs tries his hand at hero ing, and Hiccup finds out about his cursed ancestry Throw in loads of sword fighting, dragon trickery, and an arch nemesis, and you ve got the makings of a seriously epic adventure In Audiobook format, read by David Tennant, whose performance in this story sur [...]

    17. It was a very interesting and exciting book, much like all the other books in the series It was nice to know that there was a bigger plot involved, aside from the obvious continuity with Alvin What started out as a usual children s book for me has now become much than that This one was quite darker than the other books so far Cressida writes beautifully and Hiccup s thoughts on life and friendship and stuff are really inspiring.The story of Hiccup s ancestor was rather depressing and creepy, an [...]

    18. This one is definitely the heaviest of the series, and Hiccup really seems to grow from boy to would be Chief He s starting to realize that things don t always work out perfectly because even though this one has a happy ending, there s trouble on the horizon and Hiccup knows there are rough times ahead I was happy to have lots of Fishlegs in this one, and was glad to see Humongously Hotshot make a cameo appearance I keep wondering when the magic will go out of this series for me, but eight books [...]

    20. the longer this series progresses, the better it gets, not many series can have that claim but its certainly the case here Only a few books to go and the series is in my opinion is begging to wind downMy favorite part of these novels has become old hiccup s thoughts and memories about his life and experiences.i look forward to seeing what happens next with the dragon rebellion and what hiccup will do in order to restore peace between humans and dragon kind things are really heating up my friends [...]

    21. This book introduces a completely new plot to the series that will carry on to the end Epic fantasy is one of my sweet spots Therefore, I expect to completely gobble up the remainder of the series.

    29. Loved this book Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is such a great name I am going to go back to book one to find out what I ve missed The writing is bright and witty, often tongue in cheek The pickles Hiccup gets into through no fault of his own are cleverly written and often funny especially when somehow fate is on his side and he escapes all sorts of narrow squeaks Cressida Cowell has a gift for dialogue, making this fantasy believable and the characters very human even in this most imaginat [...]
