    Once again, just a frickin delight I love Wish and Xar, but most importantly I love David Tennant as the Unknown Narrator Crazy stuff happened, funny stuff happened, and we got to hear a song written by a werewolf, translated into English, sung by David Tennant.

    I ve got an ARC of this book, Lucky me Let me begin by saying I loved this onethan I loved the first book While the first one was pretty serious, skipped the potty humour and was around the level of How to ride a dragon s storm How to break a dragon s heart, this one cranked it up a notch to How to steal a dragon s sword levels Including war, a kidnapping, characters going missing and a heartbreaking, sad, tragic, magic backstory told to the main characters, Termagant style.The book i I ve got an ARC of this book, Lucky me Let me begin by saying I loved this onethan I loved the first book While the first one was pretty serious, skipped the potty humour and was around the level of How to ride a dragon s storm How to break a dragon s heart, this one cranked it up a notch to How to steal a dragon s sword levels Including war, a kidnapping, characters going missing and a heartbreaking, sad, tragic, magic backstory told to the main characters, Termagant style.The book includes a map and two named parts, just like the previous one Plus, Xar and Wish have a little different outfit The story starts in the middle of the action with Xar who else in big trouble.Speaking of Xar, he was much less annoying In the first book 50% of me liked him for being clever and the other 50% vehemently annoyed me, while here he is much nicer And while the two heroes don t always get along I liked that a lot, they re friends but are still on opposide sides and still curse eachother when mad and stuff like that doesn t fade with one encounter their friendship is really sweet Another thing I won t spoil too much about is that Xar is suffering terribly for one of his mistakes in book 1 although he manages to avoid very serious consequences, stuff gets dire at one point And it doesn t get resolved in the end, so further suffering will commence This is a Cressida Cowell book after all I am kind of excited for that Wish is a sweet little cupcake who only wants the best but sadly no one ever listens to her Her relationship with her mother is elaborated on in a very beautiful wayIn most people s eyes, Wish s mother Queen Sychorax was the most petrefying Warrior leader in the entire western Wildwoods, known for her savage punishments, her short temper and her dungeons of internminable depth In Wish s eyes, her mother was the most wonderful, beautiful, splendid person in the entire world, andthan anything else in the world Wish longed to please her mother, get her golden approval It explains SO MUCH and says a lot about the adoration that kids generally have of their parents not wanting to see their bad sides and such The fact that Sychorax is so disappointed in Wish is still the saddest part of the series to me her six sisters who are actually her stepsisters of another father or other fathers are really mean.But it was Bodkin who suddenly made it to the top of my favourite character list I really didn t expect that His fainting felt a little weird in book 1 but here he won me over His thoughts of I m lonely because the other assistants bodyguards can t stand that I got promotion that s the problem with adventures they bring out parts of you that you didn t know of I want to be something else when I grow up but my family pressure forbids it of book one are really meaningful He s the sassy voice of reason to slow Xar and Wish down Plus this quote my other favouriteOne of the many reasons why Bodkin wanted to go home was that back in Warrior Fort, he had Wish all to himself, he and the Spoon were her only friends But out here, in the Wildwoods with the wayward undeniably charismatic Xar, Bodkin had to share her This is such a great description It s that feeling where you know you re no match for all the clever funny awesome charismatic people around and you feel really plain and ordinary but don t want to show it It s just so relatable.The cover was really different but it grew on me It depicts a scene from the book that I m not going to spoil and the Warrior Fort in the background I particularly like the golden theme On the back there is an alternate cover of book 1 that I ve never seen before It s Wish and Xar riding a snowcat through the woods, like that one scene from book 1, even though they were never on the same snowcat.The story was great We start in the middle of the action with Xar in trouble Xar cheats himself out of trouble then into eventrouble in a span of 70 pages before we catch up on Wish, who is locked in a cupboard because her mother has an important visitor and doesn t want Wish to embarass her Poor Wish The two heroes meet again in a dashing fashion and embark on a quest The middle part is a bit slower than the humorous beginning of 150 pages and the grand finale The finale consist of a great fight scene, a party ending and a little less of a cliffhanger than the last book, even though there is plenty that screams for book 3 When the movie comes out there will inevitably people rooting for a romance between Wish and Xar and I don t want that They re so good as friends and I don t want that ruined Besides it s kind of weird knowing the contents of book 2 However Twice Magic came up with a new option and honestly it was written so sweetly that , while I don t ship it I have the weird tendency not to love ANY romantic subplot I m actually kind of rooting for it.This being an ARC most of the illustrations are missing and I think I ll even buy the completed version when it s out If it s published in Australia that is

    Just as fun as the first one I might even liked this one a little bit better And the narration by David Tennant was, of course, amazing.

    But then, said Caliburn, the adults are making such an almighty mess of things maybe we have to put our faith in the children, crazy and unrealistic and reckless though they are Two kids who shouldn t have met one is a Wizard the other is a Warrior though with magic that shouldn t exist will meet again, and will have to use all their wits, magic, and bravery to beat Witches and save the world I just loved the first book, which I found when I was visiting London with autographBut then, said Caliburn, the adults are making such an almighty mess of things maybe we have to put our faith in the children, crazy and unrealistic and reckless though they are Two kids who shouldn t have met one is a Wizard the other is a Warrior though with magic that shouldn t exist will meet again, and will have to use all their wits, magic, and bravery to beat Witches and save the world I just loved the first book, which I found when I was visiting London with autograph, and I was delighted that this series is continuing Too bad I can t just go to London again to grab another limited edition I am sure there is one Our heroes are found in two places at the start of the story Gormincrag for Xar, due to events of the last book and the Witchstain on his hand that is ever growing and behind a giant wall for our Wish But don t worry our two heroes will meet again Albeit not in a way I thought they would, with Xar sneaking into the Warrior Fortress to steal back his Spelling Book really, couldn t you have asked The adventure was just so exciting, and I loved reading about the world, see our duo and their friends companions try to find ingredients, shake off pursuers, dodge some scary witches, and oh yes, then there is the Kingswitch who was wayyyyy to creepy I am so happy with Wish and Xar, they are muchadult than the adults themselves Sure, they are bickering at times, but throughout the story we see that these two really like each other s company And I was just absolutely squealing in delight at a certain scene and what Xar said there Squee Xar at times is still an annoying little boy HOWEVER, as the story continues we see him acting smarter, kinder, and he is seeing that things aren t just black and white as the adults often think I am really happy that he is making these changes, that he is growing, that he is becoming stronger I can t wait to see the final Xar What kind of guy will he be then I still love Wish the most out of the two characters She is sweet, kind, and I just adore that she can do magic while being a warrior I had such a laugh when we had an enchanted spoon, a fork, and a key, and it turned into one big love triangle Then there is the backstory for Xar s father and Wish s mother It was definitely a surprise to me, I just can t imagine it, but we do see some signs in this book that do confirm it to be a true backstory Now I am just rooting for certain things to happen, though I guess it won t happen unless someone can do some unspelling Also, this does explain some thing regarding Wish.I loved meeting a giant even bigger andancient than Crusher I hope that we seeof these giants Yeah, I know they have left the world, went to the sea, but who knows, maybe they are still there somewhere The adults were pretty eh in this book I get that they want to protect their kids, and not have them do all the things they do, but come on listen Listen to your kids So many things could have been prevented if people just listened I was constantly rolling my eyes at how stupid the adults were acting in this book I get that they may not believe Xar due to him constantly lying and making up things left and right , but at least listen to Wish And urghghhhh, I hated that Witchsmeller dude My lord, that dude was just so annoying and dumb Come on, you should know what a Witch looks like or does, and that there is no such thing as a Fule Fool He kept on going on and on and on about that In the end I just wanted to feed him to the Kingswitch The ending was terrific, though I also was shaking my fist Argghhhh, now we need to wait until the next book to find out , and see if our duo and their friends and companions will be able to get the ingredients Will they defeat the evil in the world Or will it take a fewbooks which I also don t mind as these books are scrumptious Lastly, we have the illustrations I definitely have to get used to their style again, it is a very unique style, but I have to say I love it It just fits like a glove Oh, and I can t forget the Narrator I am still very much guessing on who it could be, so far though I haven t got a clue as to who it could be I am just way too immersed in the story to see the hints I guess That is the trouble with this book, it just sucks you in It draws you to this magical world We also see some spellbook pages, get the story of the giant, and somefun extras All in all, I just need the next book in this series and I hope it will be out next year although that is already such a long wait I would HIGHLY recommend this book to all Review first posted at
