Read the books that inspired the How to Train Your Dragon films. In this twelfth and final adventure, can Hiccup save the dragons?

Dragons vs Humans: can Hiccup save the dragons? Find out in the EPIC finale to the How to Train Your Dragon series.

It is the Doomsday of Yule. At the end of this day, either the humans or the dragons will face extinction. Alvin the Treacherous is about to be crowned the King of the Wilderwest on the island of Tomorrow. His reign of terror will begin with the destruction of dragons everywhere.

The fate of the dragon world lies in the hands of one young boy as he stands on the nearby isle of Hero's End with nothing to show, but everything to fight for. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third's Quest is clear. First he must defeat the Dragon Guardians of Tomorrow and prove that he is in fact the rightful king, even though Hiccup has none of the King's Things and Alvin the Treacherous has all ten of them.

And then he faces his final battle: Hiccup must fight the Dragon Furious and end the Rebellion ... ALONE.

As Doomsday draws to an end can Hiccup be the Hero of the hour? Will the dragons survive?

Industry Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON BOOKS:

'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.' - Amanda Craig, The Times

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

[Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy. - Books for Keeps

'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' - Amanda Craig, Times

Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. - Independent on Sunday

'If light amusement is required, Cressida Cowell's How to Break a Dragon's Heart delivers all it promises. There are lots of illustrations and a playfulness with language that will draw in even the most reluctant reader.' - Daily Telegraph

'is not only funny, well written and thrilling, but also wise about what we owe those who love us.' - The Times

About the Author


Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin's and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton. Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring.

Cressida has written and illustrated eight books in the popular Hiccup series. The unique blend of child centred humour and sublime prose made Hiccup an instant hit. How to Train Your Dragon is now published in over 30 languages. A DreamWorks Animation feature film is out in March 2010. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others. Cressida lives in Hammersmith with her husband and three children.
