VORPENTITIS, caused by the sting of a Venomous Vorpent, which means that Fishlegs has until ten o’clock on Friday morning before he dies from the poison that is making its way to his heart.
The only antidote is the Vegetable-that-No-one-Dares-Name – the potato. But the only way for Hiccup to find the cure is to face Norbert the Nutjob and the terrifying Sea Dragon, the Doomfang. Can Hiccup survive the quest to save his best friend – and discover how to cheat a dragon's curse?
