The How to Train Your Dragon series chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Viking underdog Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his dragon, Toothless. In Book 9, treacherous times have come to the Archipelago. Ever since the woods of Berserk burned down, the world itself seems cursed. Dragons are beginning to revolt against their Masters, Old Wrinkly is missing, and the waters have risen, flooding fields and washing entire villages away. Worst of all, the wicked witch, Excellinor, has returned--and she wants Hiccup's sword. Can Hiccup protect his sword, find Old Wrinkly, and stop Excellinor from revealing that he has the Slavemark?
