High up in the treacherous mists of the Murderous Mountains, Hiccup and the Company of the Dragonmark are in hiding. The witch's Spydragons are guarding the shores of Tomorrow - but Hiccup is determined to become King of the Wilderwest.

Can Hiccup dodge the dragons and steal the King's Things back from Alvin before the Doomsday of Yule?

And is there a traitor in Hiccup's camp who in the end will betray them all?

CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK: This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger. - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

... raucous and slapstick... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. - The Financial Times
