Book Review: How to Ride a Dragon's Storm

These stories are still entertaining, but I’m finding it more difficult to review them. They all have the same common theme now and some of it starts to be convenient. Hiccup is in a dangerous situation, and what do you know? Something crazy happens that saves him.

I still enjoy the characters, although Fishlegs is starting to get a bit annoying with his fearful tendencies. I did like when he jumped in the water to save Hiccup even though he didn’t know how to swim though. At least we see a little character development, and the strength of friendship and loyalty.

Kamikaze is hilarious, as usual. I’m glad Cowell added her in. If it was just Hiccup and Fishlegs, it would be pretty boring.

I’d like to see more about Stoic and his wife and previous love and such. That story was really good. Now it’s gone back to more superficial stuff. This book didn’t seem to have much of a point.

I’d also like to see Hiccup age a bit in the next few books. It’s strange for all of this to be happening in such a short time period. At least in this book, 3 months passed.
