He ultimately decides not to, and Hiccup asks him what he's doing. Hotshot begins to tell Hiccup his story, of how he fell in love with a Viking woman, but her father wanted her to marry someone clever. The woman's father sent Hotshot on an Impossible Task to find and bring back the Firestone, and the reward was the woman's hand in marriage. Hotshot traveled to the volcano where the Firestone was hidden, but he was captured soon after by the Lava Louts.

After a few weeks, he became friends with a jailkeeper named Terrific Al. He asked Terrific Al to bring a half of the ruby heart to his love because she vowed to save him if she received the ruby heart. Terrific Al told Humongous that he would bring the ruby heart to his ladylove if he promised to do something for him and disappeared for fifteen years and came back to tell Humongous Hotshot that his love threw the heart out of the window and married somebody else who had already brought back the Firestone.

Terrific Al who mysteriously has lost a hand, half a leg, an eye and all of his hair told Humongous the thing he must promise to do is to kill Hiccup, stating that Hiccup is a Prince of Darkness and a Devil Child, who will send terror across the Archipelago. After Hotshot finishes his story Hiccup figures out that the woman Humungous is talking about is Hiccup's own mother, who had thought he was dead, and that "Terrific Al" is really the terrible villain Alvin the Treacherous as Hiccup had guessed.

Hiccup, Fishlegs, Hotshot, Camicazi, the White Dragon and the Windwalker, Hiccup's riding dragon travel to Lava-Lout Island to put the fire stone inside the volcano to stop the volcano from exploding and are attacked by Alvin riding an Exterminator. Alvin reveals the first Sharkworm he met tore out his eye, but he killed it and hid inside. However, after he got out on shore the dead Sharkworm's mouth shut on his leg, but he carved a new one from its teeth. The volcano erupts and the Exterminators hatch.

Hiccup manages to put the stone into the volcano. But on contact with the lava, the fire stone hatches into a fire dragon, revealing that the fire stone is actually an egg. The dragon eats all the Exterminators, including the one Alvin is riding, swallowing Alvin again, Hiccup thinks he's dead and the dragon dives back into the lava.

Hiccup and his riding dragon, Windwalker, run down the island away from lava and fall into the sea. Hiccup's father and others rescue him and everything works out well. In the epilogue, Hiccup tells us that Windwalker turns out to be his faithful flying dragon. The sixth book in the series is the only one not to have How to in its title. Hiccup is lost in the Library Labyrinth and the Driller Dragons and Madguts the Murderous are on the prowl, all because of a book!

Hiccup's birthday is not going to be the quiet affair he might have hoped for. Hiccup wakes up that morning, wishing for a peaceful birthday. He then tries to persuade Toothless to eat his breakfast, which is spinach and drift wood. When Hiccup returns home, he realizes Toothless has eaten three-quarters of Stoick's throne.

Stoick comes in the room, and is in a bad temper because he had made a bet to Big-Boobied Bertha that he could prove that the Hooligans were just as good at Burglary as the Bog-Burglars by the end of the day, and also because Hiccup has been researching about dragons and writing in notebooks about them. Stoick tells Hiccup that if Toothless does one more thing like this, he will banish him, and goes off to find the book. Camicazi suggests that they can go to the Meathead Library, and supposedly there might be another copy of the book, and get back home "in time for tea".

With the help of Stormfly, Camicazi's dragon, they find the copy of "How to Train Your Dragon", though it is a second edition. Fishlegs throws a book at the Hairy Scary Librarian. However, Stormfly is knocked out in the process, and awakens with no memory of who she is, and how did she get in. The Librarian, who falls onto the floor, which is full of Red Hot Itchyworms the worms went into his pants, tickling him runs toward the exit, laughing and screaming.

The noise attracts Driller Dragons who are dwelling in the Library. Hiccup finds a book that was written by Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the II called A Hero's Guide To Deadly Dragons which was exactly the same book that Hiccup the third wrote, which had been taken from him earlier that morning.

He pulls the book out and the shelf opens, revealing a hole filled with Poisonous Piffleworms. Their only exit would be to go through the hole. They find that it has gone to the Isle of Berk and go there. On the Isle of Berk, both Stoick and Bertha find the stolen things they have got for the bet are missing. Madguts and Gumboil arrive for the Stealth Dragon and are about to kill Bertha. Hiccup saves her by lying to Madguts, telling him that the Scary Hairy Librarian had stolen the Stealth Dragon instead, so she squashed the Librarian.

Madguts believes him, and takes the Librarian away. Hiccup persuades Stoick that books are useful and books are unbanned by order of the Thing. This is the seventh book in the series. The story starts at the beach at the bottom the Murderous Mountains. The winner may have a single request which will be granted by the three Chiefs of the three tribes.

The winner of the swimming race is the one who is the Last Man or Woman back. Madguts, Stoick and Big Boobied Bertha set off to the water more slowly than the others, more certain that they will win the race. Gumboil and Madguts laugh at the fact that Bog-burglars and the Hooligans are all wearing Blubberwing fat to keep themselves warm, and show them the Deepest Purple Fleshfang oil they are wearing, which is so hot, in fact, that a steam is billowing off Madgut's chest.

And then they tell them that there is a pot at the edge of the water. Gumobil assures the two Chiefs that they can go back, because the race does not start until you start swimming. The two Chiefs realise the pot is empty, and also realises that they have been tricked into returning to the beach in three minutes and twenty-two seconds, and become the losers of the Race.

Hiccup, Camicazi and Fishlegs have difficulty in swimming the farther waters, even though their hunting dragons are trying to help, especially Fishlegs, who has to swim in armbands. They encounter Snotlout and Dogsbreath, who destroy Fishlegs' armbands. Camicazi and Fishlegs are pulled underwater after a while. Hiccup also is pulled down, and is pulled back to the surface, realising that he and his friends have been captured by Raptortongues.

They are taken to a ship and tied up. Their hunting dragons are tied up too. Norbert has asked Madguts to take Hiccup, Camicazi and Fishlegs to the boat, and in return letting him rest on the boat for a few hours, before he continues the race, being the Last Man Back.

After Madguts and Gumboil leave, Hiccup returns the ticking thing, which he had stolen from Norbert in an earlier adventure. Norbert attempts to use the ticking thing to get to America. Norbert is about to kill Hiccup, Camicazi and Fishlegs with the Axe of Doom, but is forced to untie the three because he cannot read the ticking thing.

Hiccup and his friends explore the boat, finding many interesting contraptions that have been made by Norbert, for example: a machine that generates a high-pitched noise that will startle giant dragons and a flying Machine that is tested by crew members every day, only to crash into the ocean.

  8. Hiccup discovers there are slaves called the Northern Wanderers on the boat. He falls into the Slave Hatch by accident one day and meets Bearcub and his grandmother. Hiccup pleads that Wanderers not to kill him, and promises to free them, and is rescued by Norbert. The boat reaches the land of Polar-serpents, where dangerous dragons called Polar-serpents roam. Hiccup decides to use Dragon-nip to make the Hysterics fall asleep and escape with the Wanderers.

    Hiccup pours dragon-nip into the crew's dinner, making them all fall asleep. After all Wanderers are safe on the emergency boats, Hiccup falls off the boat and lands on an iceberg, and is chased into a cave by Polar Serpents. Hiccup accidentally wakes up a gigantic dragon, which also chases Hiccup. Hiccup manages to get back onto the boat, and uses the machine that generates a high pitched noise to keep the monster away, identifying it as a Leviathorgan.

    America is in sight, but a storm breaks out, and the Leviathorgan from the cave attacks the ship. Norbert and Hiccup fight on the top of the ship. Lightning strikes Norbert's axe and it enters the sea, killing the Leviathorgan. Hiccup falls off the mast, as he swims up he hits his head on a sinking cauldron which shortly gives him amnesia, and then he passes out. He is rescued by Fishlegs and Camicazi. Old Wrinkly announces that Hiccup, Fishlegs and Camicazi have not yet returned, and the race is supposed to be three months, five days and six hours, so they still have to wait for three months, before Madguts is declared winner, and the two other Chiefs will be under temporary custody under Madguts.

    Camicazi and Fishlegs are rescued by the Wanderers. The two take Hiccup on board too, and after Bearcub's grandmother's medicine, Hiccup awakens. After a long time, the ticking thing start to tick louder, because Old Wrinkly had set an alarm on it. With only six hours left, and thinking that Old Wrinkly really did have a reason to set the alarm, the three fly to Berk on Norbert's flying machine, which the Wanderers had collected. The machine works well, but as they near Berk, the machine breaks and crashes into the ocean.

    Hiccup and his friends come just in time for the alarm to set off. Because Hiccup is the last person back, he demands Madguts to sing a love song at the next "Thing" while dressed up as an "ickle pretty shepherdess". It is revealed that in turn for his life, the Northern Wanderers have tattooed Hiccup with the Slavemark, a Viking symbol which now means he is technically a slave. However, he can hide the Slavemark under his helmet and so now will have to wear his helmet forever.

    This is the eighth book in the series. The Hooligans, while searching for Camicazi who had been shipwrecked during a storm in the Eastern Archipelago a dangerous section in the Barbaric Archipelago , accidentally crash their ship into a rock, and the ship sinks in the shallow waters of the Beach of the Broken Heart, a haunted beach belonging to wicked pirates called Uglithugs, forcing the Hooligans to camp there. While on the beach, they find a mysterious object, and they discover it is a throne belonging to Hooligans, as the Hooligan coat of arms is on it. In the middle of the night, the leader of the Uglithugs, UG, and his men, discover the Hooligans, waking them up.

    UG tells them that he doesn't want to kill them, but wants to talk to them about a strange event: a Hooligan has been sending love letters to UG's daughter, Tantrum O'Ugerly, and explains that if the person is of royal blood, the person can ask for Tantrum's hand in marriage after the person finishes an Impossible Task, and if not, the person will be killed. Hiccup realizes that Fishlegs is the one who sent the letters, and spares Fishlegs life by telling UG that he himself wrote the letters.

    UG then tells him the Impossible Task: to give them a barrel of mead made from the honey made by the bees on the Island of Berserk, an island inhabited by crazy lunatics who enjoy feeding people alive to a dragon known as "the Beast" in wicker baskets. UG then tells Hiccup that he should be back at UG's castle on Midsummer's day at five o'clock in the morning with five pots of Berserk honey. Back on the little isle of Berk, Stoick convinces the other Hooligans to help Hiccup collect the honey. Meanwhile, Fishlegs realizes that he himself is a Berserk, after going berserk himself.

    And that he had been thrown into the sea in a lobster pot and had been adopted by Hooligans, and goes off to Berserk on his Chickenpoxer dragon. Hiccup and Toothless follow him on the Windwalker. On Berserk, Fishlegs successfully collect five pots of honey, but gets captured by Berserks. So is Hiccup. All of them are to be fed to "the Beast" later in the evening. Hiccup realizes that the chef of the Berserk Chief is actually Alvin the Treacherous who is in chains.

    Alvin explains that when he was in the Fire Dragon in Book 5, he had used his sword to pop open the stomach of the Exterminator Dragon he was riding because there is lots of laughing gas in the stomach of dragons. The Fire dragon burst out in laughter, melting off Alvin's nose, and Alvin floated out in a bubble, which was later shot down by a Berserk. Alvin then fell from the sky onto the Berserk Chief's chef, and spared his own life by agreeing to become the Chief's new chef.

    Hiccup tells Alvin that he can help him escape if he shows him where Camicazi is imprisoned Hiccup had already knew that she was imprisoned in Berserk. Alvin agrees but while they are in the woods, he pushed Hiccup into a tree cell, where he meets a witch who introduces herself as Hogtrude and Hiccup introducing himself as Fishlegs , who helps get some nasty things from Toothless's tummy.

    The witch then finds Hiccup suspicious and decides to tell him a story and at the end of the story, they will both guess each other's names and whoever guesses right will get to kill the other. Grimbeard tried to kill the second Hiccup by leaving him in the mountainside, upsetting his wife who left to look for the second Hiccup. Meanwhile, the second Hiccup was adopted by Grimler dragons and learned to speak Dragonese, but was found by Hooligans, and he and his adopted step dragon brother, a Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus named Furious, lived with Grimbeard.

    One day, Hiccup wanted to hold a petition for the dragons to demand freedom. However, Thugheart tricked Grimbeard into thinking that it was an attack and Grimbeard killed Hiccup, but soon he realizes that Hiccup just wanted a peaceful petition, and regrets his actions and buried his treasures and left in his boat Furious took the second Hiccup's corpse away.

    The witch guesses Hiccup's correct name, and Hiccup guesses that the witch is Alvin the Treacherous's mother, both being correct. Hiccup then escapes by using a key that had been in Toothless' belly to unlock the door to the cell and rescues Camicazi and they return to the Berserk Village. Hiccup goes back into his cage just as the feeding of "the Beast" begins. Alvin, surprised that Hiccup has returned, chooses Hiccup to be fed to "the Beast" first. Hiccup realizes that "the Beast" is actually the "Dragon Furious". After realizing that Hiccup is a descendant of a boy he loved, he swears a "cross my heart and hope to die" oath this is an oath that any dragon cannot break if Hiccup sets him free.

    The oath was that the Dragon Furious will help free the prisoners on the island and never harm humans. He sets fire to the Berserk woods and tells Hiccup that a year after he leaves the Archipelago, he shall return to destroy the humans along with a dragon army The Dragon Furious really hates humans. Meanwhile, Humongous bring his five pots of honey to UG's room and goes on his honeymoon with Tantrum because Humongous had been the one she had loved.

    In the epilogue, Hiccup reveals that sometimes he dreams he is the father of the second Hiccup, and sees him riding on a dragon, promising he will return. This is the ninth book in the series. Bad times come to the Archipelago, and ever since the woods of Berserk burned down it is as if the world is cursed. Hiccup and other young warriors are brought to the island where "Flashburn's School of Swordfighting" waits for them.

    See a Problem?

    The children have 3 weeks at the school to train their sword fighting, for New Year's Day; there will be a sword fighting competition, in which the winner is declared a new warrior of his tribe. The youngsters have to go up the cliff, "The Hard Way", and are attacked by a pack of dragons of different species, which is unusual behavior for dragons.

    Hiccup's clever plan saves the lot of them. But once at the school, no one is to be found. Worse still, the only person there, the wicked witch Excellinor Alvin the Treacherous's Mother has returned as the castle's witch. She tells everyone that the dragons are revolting in a "Red Rage" and are led by the dragon Furious, who was one year before released by She tells the tribes that the sword fighting competition must be used to find the next king of the Wilderwest.

    She tells them a prophecy which is about the next king: he has a dragon with no teeth, an arrow from a land that does not exist, Grimbeard's second-best sword, a ticking-thing, a rectangular shield, a throne, a crown, and the Dragon Jewel.

    Hiccup has got all of these things, except the throne, though he knows where it is, the crown, and the dragon jewel. Meanwhile, the witch makes sure that her son Alvin has no challengers during the competition. Hiccup finds the crown under Flashburn's school, along with a dragon called the Wodensfang, a very old, ancient dragon that was told to guard the crown by Grimbeard the Ghastly.

    The Wodensfang tells him he was the one who gave the first Hiccup the Dragon Jewel. He gets back into the hut and the witch attacks him but he was immune to the vorpent venom on her claws gets himself covered in the poison in the struggle, wins the competition, beating his own father. Alvin is third. Hiccup is declared winner and tells the tribes that he wanted to free all dragons so that there would be no revolt in the first place. He wants to abolish slavery for both humans and dragons.

    Most tribes agree on this, but then, when all looks so well, Snotlout throws a stone at his head, knocking Hiccup's helmet off, revealing he has the Slavemark. Everyone's shocked. The Slavemark is the ultimate mark of shame. Since he has the Slavemark, Hiccup is automatically a slave, disqualified from the competition, exiled from his tribe, and could never become chief, let alone a king. Stoick, Hiccup's father, is also banished, because he knew Hiccup was a 'runt', and thus should not have been part of their tribe in the first place, but instead abandoned as a baby.

    Fishlegs, who is also a runt, was abandoned, but he ended up on Berk. Everyone has to turn their backs, excluding Fishlegs, who gives Hiccup his lobster-claw necklace, the only thing Fishlegs has from his parents. Alvin's the new king, and declares war on the dragons. Furious arrives and the war begins. Only Windwalker and Toothless stay faithful, and bring Hiccup to safety. He is followed by the dragons, who think he has the Dragon Jewel, the only thing that could stop the dragons now.

    In mid-chase he falls unconscious on dragonback and wakes up safe in a cave, Hiccup now all alone, an outcast, an exile, no sword, no helmet, only the Windwalker, Toothless and the Wodensfang by his side, Hiccup's in despair, until he finds he actually has the map to find the Dragon Jewel Which is revealed by the venom on his hands uncovering the secret map on Grimbeard the Ghastly's will , and triumphantly cries: This is not the end I will be back!

    Stoick has been banished and given the Slavemark. But what can Hiccup do, now all alone and in exile, hunted by both humans and dragons? Can he find the Dragon Jewel, mankind's last and only hope? And if he does, what will he do with it? The book starts with Hiccup in exile. He is nearly killed by his mother, Vallhallarama while he deactivates dragon traps, and loses the map to her.

    He travels to a slave jail under Alvin the Treacherous's control to spy on Alvin. There, he finds and befriends many slaves, including his father that comb the beaches during low tide, looking for the Dragon Jewel. Alvin discovers Hiccup and makes him look for the Dragon Jewel by himself, with a deadly armed guard. A Deadly Shadow swoops down and snatches Hiccup before he has a chance to look for the Jewel.

They the dragon has three heads, Arrogance, Patience and Innocence tell him that they had promised to care for a Berserker woman's baby who was supposed to be killed by drifting through the ocean. They lost sight of the baby however, and it drifted to Berk and grew up to be Fishlegs. Hiccup admits he is not this child, and tells them of Fishleg's fate which was to be sucked into a hole in the ground. He goes to this hole and gets pulled in to it by its inhabitant, a large dragon with an eye on each finger.

    His dragon instincts tell him that this dragon can't be reasoned with, so Hiccup plays dead long enough for the dragon to eat him up to the waist, which is when Hiccup stabs the dragon in a major vulnerable spot. He ventures off into the creature's maze of glass walls because of a mysterious voice and finds Fishlegs. He also finds the Dragon Jewel.

    More filters. Sort order. Mar 22, Jonel rated it really liked it. The story itself was well written with a nice forward flow and pace. The intricate and multifaceted storyline breaks the mould for the genre while keeping you entertained and guessing. You get some very intense moments combined with some comical incidents that make it all seem quite real. I appreciate the fact that although the story is a romantic suspense there are more than two individuals who carry it forward.

    The varied persona The story itself was well written with a nice forward flow and pace. The varied personalities in the cast complement each other, rather than working at odds or being very similar to one another. As a whole, I quite enjoyed this novel and this is definitely an author that I will be reading more of in the future.

While I would not want to be pursued by a bounty hunter, I would not might being the love interest for one. To be honest, while this book was not my favorite, it was alright.

    For me I liked both Ben and Wolf for different reasons. The story seemed a little lop-sided. In regards to there was more romance then I thought suspense. It seemed to take forever for Wolf and Ben to track down their intended target. The ending leads that maybe there might be another book in the long future.

    Working together, however at odds with one another, the two stumble Hot Pursuit is the story of two bounty hunters, Ben Mercy and Wolf Marley, who venture to Zounds, California from Los Angeles in search for the infamous Mulligen Stew Assassin. Working together, however at odds with one another, the two stumble upon a couple of local women, Angelina aka Angel and Zoey Cortez, that happen to provide a nice distraction until they themselves get pulled into the hunt.

    I had a difficult time getting into this novel which is part of the reason it took me awhile to finish. I am not too sure why it didn't really capture my interest but I maintained a pretty decent level of mild interest, enough to finish the book. The book has an interesting action plot revolving around the two bounty hunters and the assassin, but the sex scenes littered throughout seemed to weigh it down.

    O' Clare attempted to combine an action adventure with a romance and slightly missed the mark. For example, when Zoey and Ben are trying to escape Emilio Cortez Zoey's tyrant of a father whose financially manipulating Zounds the pair take plenty of time to contemplate one another's body parts, or engaging in sexual acts. Completely unnecessary.

    If they are fighting for their survival, let them fight Also, I wasn't too thrilled with the character Zoey Cortez. While Ben boasts about how strong, and smart Zoey is because he's obviously letting his penis do his thinking , she makes plenty of foolish decisions throughout the novel. My favorite has to be when she's being protected by the Mulligen Stew Assassin at his cabin and she opts to drive off because she's "tired of men controlling her". A girl who understands that her abusive father is after her willingly leaves her primary means of safety.

    It didn't surprise me one bit that she ended up getting caught, dragged back to her father's house and then beaten to a pulp and possibly raped. I don't much care for stupid female characters. Overall, I would recommend this novel for it's action plot alone, but that's it. Nov 19, Emily rated it liked it.

    How Moviepilot sees this week’s wide releases shaping up on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google

    I wanted to really like this book, but there were several things that kept me from enjoying it. First of all, it took about a quarter of the book until you even meet Zoey. I do think the thing with Wolf and Ben was necessary, but there should have at least been a chapter where you got to meet Zoey. I never connected with her at all. She was a victim the whole book, never discovering any sort of inner strength.

    Now, Angel and Wolf? THAT could have been a pretty good book had it just been them. I have no idea why there were these two love stories in the same book. I think it would have been more effectively executed by making the main story about Angel and Wolf and then having Ben and Zoey as the kind of side romance. Another thing that bugged be was the over-describing of the characters.

    I don't need the description from everyone's POV. One part that drove me NUTS and further supported my opinion that the story should have been about Angel and Wolf was the fact that Ben and Zoey don't have sex until like the second to last chapter, with only one sexual encounter before that. I was starting to wonder if they'd ever have sex, and I skipped ahead to see if they did, but upon quick glance, I didn't even see any indication of sex. Where was the build-up? The climax? It all just seemed a bit disjointed, with too many characters and not enough emotion.

    You never have to look very far to find your true friends There are two bounty hunters with their own unique agenda after one man who depending on what glasses you are wearing is seen as either sinner or saint. Ben is trying to take care of his friend and keep danger away, while Wolf wants the bounty on this capture no matter how it goes down. The problem both men find in the sleepy little town the search drops them is beautiful women, a man terrorizing the town folk, and a very well hidden bount You never have to look very far to find your true friends There are two bounty hunters with their own unique agenda after one man who depending on what glasses you are wearing is seen as either sinner or saint.

    The problem both men find in the sleepy little town the search drops them is beautiful women, a man terrorizing the town folk, and a very well hidden bounty Ben finds himself quickly attached to Zoey a woman who is hiding from her father who it seems is the terror of every small business owner in town. Wolf lands right in front of Angel the woman of his dreams that just happens to be a victim to the town bully, which pulls both men into proactive stances.

    Ben and Wolf keep the women safe and even though they have no idea where it is going to land them keep the search on night and day until answers are provided. Violence has touched their lives on some many levels that now dealing with tenderness it seems more difficult to maneuver, why is that? The search is dangerous, the town terrorists leaving more than subtle threats that neither man is going to take lightly without pushing back vigorously. Ben knows what it is like to be bullied and fight for the right to protect what belongs to you, the others guys may be bigger but they are not going to know what hit them when Ben is done with them.

    No need to start a fire in the chimera to get any warmth tonight, Hot Pursuit is sizzling enough to keep you warm for days. Apr 04, Nancy rated it really liked it. In fact, she excels!

Ben decides to try to find Micah and Maggie in northern California and decides to begin with the last blank postcard he received — a little town called Zounds. Pretty place — at least on the outside. Inside it is ruled by Emilio Cortez who owns the town, lock stock and property deeds. Cortez is a total mafia lord but his daughter, Zoey, is not. Angel would do anything for Zoey.

    Angel worries about losing her store and home and, to top it all off another Bounty Hunter shows up named Wolf Marley who is determined to bring in the Mulligan Stew assassin and claim the one million dollar bounty.

    Mar 31, Melanie rated it liked it Shelves: contemporary , romance , suspense , aar. I have to be completely honest. The main reason I wanted to read this book was the cover. Not really. And their lovely boat ride on the cover? I just flipped through the book again trying to find a boat ride. Lots of motorcycles, very few boats.
