Caramel is on a roll, reviewing all the books in Cressida Cowell’s How To Train Your Dragon series one by one; you can check out his reviews of How To Train Your Dragon, How to Be A Pirate, How To Speak Dragonese, How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse, How to Twist a Dragon’s Tale, A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons, and How To Ride A Dragon’s Storm if you wish. Today he is reviewing the eighth book titled How To Break A Dragon’s Heart. As usual, Sprinkles is taking notes and asking questions.
Sprinkles: So Caramel, this is book 8. What do you want to tell us about it?
Caramel: There is a big storm and Camicazi gets lost. So everyone in Berk begins to look for her.
S: So is the book about Hiccup and his friends trying to find Camicazi before it is too late.
C: Yes. First they find her ship which is destroyed completely, and they are really worried. They think she must be somewhere on Broken Heart Bay, which is supposedly haunted.
S: Oh, that name sounds like it is related to the title; how to break a dragon’s heart.
C: Not really.
S: So what is that supposed to mean? Which dragon’s heart are we talking about being broken?
C: It is Furious’s heart. He is a huge dragon, and he was a blood brother of an ancestor of Hiccup’s and when Hiccup’s relative (and namesake) was killed, the dragon’s heart broke.
S: Oh, that sounds like we will find out a lot more about Hiccup’s family history in this book, right?
S: So you have been enjoying these How To Train Your Dragon books Caramel. Is this eighth book as good as the previous ones?
C: Yes. But it is a bit sadder. But we do meet Alvin the Treacherous again. He had been swallowed up by a giant dragon and going into a volcano, but somehow he survived all that.
S: That was a bad guy, right?
C: Of course. He is one of the villains of this book. And he is also a cousin of Hiccup…
S: So we are back to that family history again. What three words would you use to describe this book? Try to come up with new words if you can.
C: Sad. I never used that before. And, believable bad guys.
S: Hmm, that is not quite a single-word descriptor but it will do. What would be your third word to describe the book?
C: Strange reunions?
S: Hmm, that is a bit mysterious. I’m intrigued…
C: You should read it! Seriously!
S: Hmm, I might just do that… Well did you read the next book yet?
S: You know Marshmallow has already reviewed that. So you need to read books #9 and #10 and review that tenth book next for us.
C: Happy to do so!
S: That’s great! So what do you want to tell our readers?
C: Stay tuned for more book bunny reviews!
