A few trips to the principal's office and a weird day over Andy finally gets to head home to face the consequences. They have just started when he is suddenly pulled into an unknown land. Soon he is finding out about magic, meeting a king and discovering a curse he may be the answer to breaking.
He ends up on an adventure with a new found friend to find the cave of the fiercest dragon in a part o the land controlled by evil. Let's just say it's not how Andy expected his day to go. Weirdest thing about it is this all seems like where he is supposed to be and what he is supposed to be doing.
The book builds a great world, an intriguing story and a lot of unanswered questions for Andy as well as the reader. When you reach the ending it assaults you with an unexpected twist leaving you wanting more. Luckily there is much more to the story in future chapters and I myself am on the way to finding and reading them.
"There will be seven books in all," Lee told me in a message on Goodreads, and all of her books can be found right here on Amazon. The targeted audience is seemingly of the younger variety, however, it's a great read and the storyline is perfect for all ages: just as is Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. This is a series that can easily catch like wildfire just as the formerly mentioned book series did. This action-packed book keep the reader entertained and drawn in until the very end, where it leaves the reader wanting more and asking, "What happens next? I guess I need to get the next book to find out."
Synopsis (from the author): Ten-year-old Andy Smithson believes he is merely a kid too often in trouble with his overambitious parents--until his destiny as the Chosen One to break a 500-year-old curse is revealed. Swept away to the land of Oomaldee of medieval times, he discovers he must collect several ingredients for a magic potion to defeat the oppressive curse that plagues the land, the first of which is the scale of a red dragon, the fiercest of all dragon species. There's just one tiny problem, he's never battled dragons, except in his Dragon Slayer video game. Armed with only his wits, an ancient sword and a magic key, he must overcome grave peril at every turn before he can even attempt the feat. No pressure, but it's his skill alone that will save - or condemn - the kingdom forever.
What I liked: This book, the first in a series, is a unique twist on the hero tale. The hero, in this case, is a ten-year-old boy who is transported to a kingdom that is under a curse. Andy is a good character, and fits the typical kid profile. His parents are both CEOs, so he feels neglected. The king - who wears jeans and t-shirts - was an interesting take on the ruler who needs help, and Mermin (Merlin's brother) is a bumbling sort of wizard. My favorite character was Alden, the servant boy who befriends Andy and shares his adventures. The story moves along nicely, with action appropriate to the age group. The book entertained me with its humor and was a good read!
What I didn't like: The one complaint I have is that the King doesn't reveal what caused the curse or why Andy must be the one to break it. I realize the story will be revealed later in the series, but a little more information would have helped!
Overall impression: The first book of the Andy Smithson series, Blast of the Dragon's Fury is a good middle grade and above read. It's entertaining enough for adults, and younger readers will enjoy the unique use of cow farts! Full of humor, adventure, magic, and heroes, the story flowed nicely and kept me entertained! I will add the rest of the series to my TBR list!!
My rating: 5 Stars
