Hiccup, with the help of Humongously Hotshot the Hero, needs to return the Fire-Stone to Volcano Island before the volcano becomes active and hatches the eggs of the Exterminator dragons. Really good installment in a fun series for children. Toothless gets to actually be helpful in this one, which isn't all that common. David Tennant does a fantastic job reading the audio version. ( )

Another excellent tale from the pen/keyboard of Cressida Cowell. That's five in row. One of the most consistent story tellers that I've read anywhee. Book six now on order. ( )

It's interesting how the backstory from the first four books in the series is combined with the new material. Alvin the treacherous returns and bad things continue to happen to him as he is swallowed by a fire dragon. ( )

Hiccup encounters a legendary hero who turns out to be his mother's ex-boyfriend, and together they must prevent a volcano from erupting. ( )
