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, a dragon rebellion is coming--filled with the meanest,
nastiest dragons in the Archipelago. Razor-wings, Tonguetwisters, and Vampire
Ghouldeaths are attacking Vikings and seem to be seeking one soul in
particular: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third! Only a King can save
them...and only a champion with all of the King's Lost Things can be King. In
his adventures, Hiccup has collected quite a few "things" himself.
But can a scrawny Viking save the entire Archipelago from certain doom? To find
out, Hiccup will have to outwit a witch, fight his arch-enemy, and beat back an
army of bloodthirsty dragons with just one sword.

She was convinced that there were dragons living on the island and has been fascinated by them ever since.
