Summary

The number 1 best seller read by David Tennant.

Once there was Magic, and the Magic lived in the dark forests. Until the Warriors came....

This is the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who have been taught since birth to hate each other like poison; and the thrilling tale of what happens when their two worlds collide. Xar is a Wizard boy who has no Magic, and will do anything to get it. Wish is a Warrior girl, but she owns a banned Magical Object, and she will do anything to conceal it.

In this whirlwind adventure, Xar and Wish must forget their differences if they're going to make it to the dungeons at Warrior Fort. Where something that has been sleeping for hundreds of years is stirring....

From the best-selling author of How to Train Your Dragon.

BRILLIANT!

My children and I have absolutely LOVED listening to this book and can’t wait for the next one. Super characters and unlikely heroes. Plenty of action and tense situations but all very appropriate for all ages of children.

Fabulous story , has just the right amount of everything. The narration is brilliant, great voices , great sound effects. This has to be a top favourite for my 10 year old daughter.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed listening to this book
Because cressida Cowell writes stories that you can really listen to and get sucked into, how to train your dragon gives a similar affect.
