Let me start off by saying how much I loved the How to Train your Dragon series and was excited Cressida Cowell has come up with an awesome new series. This book was so much fun and not just for the kiddo’s, adults can enjoy it too. I was listen to it at work and was laughing out loud so much my coworkers asked what I was doing. Which of course made me laugh more. The story and the characters are very original and so full of life. I can’t wait until the next book comes out, this book was so good I feel like listening to it again. And of course, I love the narrator and was excited to see he was doing the reading because I just loved him in the HTYD books.

I do love fantasy and fairy tales and books written for young readers can be delightful entertainment. I was especially willing to try this particular book because I love David Tennant. His narration was the only thing that made me finish the story.
The premise of 2 children from warring tribes - the warriors and the magicians - had a lot of potential. Each child was the “reject” of their parents with something to prove. Make one of the children an arrogant spoiled liar who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit him and the story is less cute than irritating.
I’m not a parent so I listen to these stories for my own enjoyment- and this one wasn’t very enjoyable because it relied on bad behavior at every turn. If I did have kids I wouldn’t recommend this book to them because the parents are awful and one of the kids is pretty unlikeable. The narration was great but there are much better books out there. I won’t be continuing with this series.
