What a glorious end for a fantastic book series.
Our hero Hiccup, who lost his memory, needs to reach the island of Tommorow and be crowned king, before Alvin, his mother and his Alvinsmen can manage to drown the whole world of dragons and humans in despair. All the while he needs to flee from the Dragon Rebellion and their fearless King Furious, who wants him dead, and keep hidden from Alvin and the witch Excellinor, who also want him dead! What a great task indeed, a task fit for a true hero.
I loved the book series from the very beginning and I don't regret ever reading it.I'm an emotional person when it comes to finals, but all things must end. Hiccup and his friends made laugh, cry and question my beliefs. This book certainly touched my heart. It was full of love and friendship, family and companionship. I was happy for it to be released, I was sad for the series to end.
as a great fan, some more sidestorys would be awesome, I'd buy them all, but this book made an excellent end. It wasn't exactly a very happy one, but it made you THINK. And if you are a mother or father of wonderful children, a friend or a dragon fan, I recommend you read the books. Children will learn so much valuable lessons!!
Hiccup learned them all along the story, and if you want to find out what he learned by yourself, go read the books and skip the next paragraph.
Some things are of great importance for us humans to understand, especially in times like these, Hiccup thaught me
1. "That fear and intimidatin might not be the best way to train a Dragon/ to live with other species.
2. That sometimes seond best is best.
3. That sometimes freedom must be fought for.
4. That when you fight for a friend, you fight for yourself.
5. That love ever dies.
6. That you must make things right in the ld world, before you go looking for the New and sometimes the things that you are looking for are right here at home.
7. That accidents happen for a reason.
8. That power can corrupt.
9. That you have to keep on trying even though you are eaten before you eve start. AND
10. That you ned to know what it is like to be a SLAVE before you can be a KING."
And if you don't think these are very valuable, wonderful, true and desirable life lessons, than you might not be the right person for a magnificent book series like the "How To Train Your Dragon" books.
Thank you Cressida Cowell, for making me feel like today full of hop for a better world to live in. A world the dragons might retrn to one day.
Shipment was fast and book in a perfect shape.
