Another fantastic listen, 3rd in the series and still finishes with me wanting more. The narrator is amazing and if I could give her more than 5 stars I would. absolutely brilliant all round.

So technically this is 0.5 is the Royal Spyness series and a great introduction, but I think as I listened to it as third - it is better to listen to after the first book or again after the first book - once you know the characters it adds hugely to story fun. You'll see.

Hiccup was a truly extraordinary Viking Hero, Warrior chieftain,awesome sword-fighter and amateur naturalist. He was known throughout Vikingdom as 'the Dragon Whisperer' on account of his power over these terrifying beasts. But it wasn't always like that.

Having loved the movies by the same title I was a bit surprised and a little disappointed how different the two are. But David Tennant's amazing performance made up for my reservations. If I hadn't see the movie first I probably would have enjoyed it a bit more, I will try others in the series. A different but great story - not 5 stars but close.

Absolutely loved it!! I was sad it ended and would love more but it ended well. I think a spin series starring Sloane would be brilliant.
