How to Twist a Dragon's Tale

As told in How to Twist a Dragon's Tale, fifteen years before the events of the book, the fire stone was stolen by Stoick the Vast for the purpose of marrying Valhallarama.

Nobber Nobrains suspects that Hiccup's Windwalker may have been a slave in the Lava-Lout Gold Mine, then escaped.

During the main events of the book, fifteen years following the fire stone's theft, the volcano on Lava-Lout Island was about to explode any day, threatening Berk and the entire Archipelago. The area around the volcano was covered with thousands of Exterminator eggs, dangerous dragons that also threatened to wreak havoc in the Archipelago. However, the return of the fire stone to the volcano stopped the eruption and turned out to be the egg of a Fire Dragon. The Fire Dragon's main diet is Exterminators, clearing up the double threats to the other islands.
