Format: Paperback
I have rather mixed feelings about this book, both from the view of an adult (apparantly) who enjoys teen fantasy fiction and from the view of how a younger reader would see it. First for the positive, this is a great story that is really engrossing once it's gotten going and is really imaginative in how it brings together the modern world and the ye olde fantasy world of dragons and kings. The basic principles of an unknown and unexpected hero, a curse and an epic quest are all here and written generally quite well, although occasionally a little predictable at times (as one who has read a far amount of fantasy fiction). And the climatic and cliff-hanger ending does leave you wanting more and keen to get stuck in to the next book in the series.

However, there are a few niggly issues which I found irritated on a few levels. Firstly the 'hero' Andy is very whiny and often childish at times but I get that one of the main parts of the story is his getting over this and taking on the quest at hand so younger readers probably won't find this quite so irksome. The other characters were however a little flat, with Alden not really adding a whole lot to the story apart from his glorious neon green hair (which has given me a bit of a style idea!), and I must be honest the complete lack of any have decent female character is a bit of a worry (the best we have is Daisy, a fire-breathing dragon). Also I found the language a bit up and down in its approach with quite adult language and words used in places and in others more 'childish' terms taking the reigns.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!
***I own this book, but the author was also kind enough to send me a copy for my classroom to share with my students

The cover is awesome and reminds me of Sleeping Beauty where the prince is battling the dragon. Of course it is a completely different picture, but that’s what jumped into my mind :)

Okay when I started reading this book, I was confused as to what was going on which made it a little slow for me. Of course, the confusion quickly cleared up. I definitely found myself chuckling thinking my son would love this book. Ah, who knew a fart could be so useful….lol Totally my son’s sense of humor. While I know this book is a middle grade book, I think most boys would find amusement and adventure in this book.

As a parent, I love that it brings up issues of truth, honesty, integrity, and perseverance. These are all things that tend to be difficult to teach our children, and I think the book does a fabulous job illustrating them. I think I’m definitely going to have my son read this book or read it with him in the future.

Andy and Alden are great characters and are easily relatable to readers. Definitely plenty of adventure, and I can’t wait to start the next book. I think this series will only get better with each book.

I recommend this book to any boy who loves adventure, dragons, puzzles, and those who find humor in a fart (this alone will attract my son).

Andy is just an ordinary kid ignored by his parents until one day when things are anything but ordinary. The school day is spent trying to explain the unexplainable that seems to happen only to him.

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.

I won a PDF.file copy of this copy during Week 3 of the Grand Opening Celebration for YA Insider website and the following is my honest opinion.

Being a Book Reviewer as well an author I’ve learned to look pass any editing issues which might exist and concentrate on the story a book has to offer. [To err is human, to forgive divine.]

To begin with book is an allegory of things all young children should learn at an early age: acceptance of others. truth, honesty, integrity, and perseverance. These are concepts which are usually not easily to teach them; concepts which you can’t hit them over their heads nor should you try talking down to them in order to convey this idea - - they would tend to ignore it. [This is what I’d learned in a college Psych class I took years ago.] And I believe this book a wonderful job in trying to accomplish this task.

Andy Smithson there’s a local curse which has been around for 500, and his family feels the time is right to end the curse now, and he’s the one who gets chosen for the task since it was an ancient ancestor who had initiated the curse.

What happens when you thrust a modern-day boy who loves video games, loves to fantasize about knights, dragons and the like to a time when things had been a “reality”? You get the storyline for this book.

I never give away any spoilers from a book, and I’m not going to give any, especially here. While this book will hold the attention of the intend audience of readers, usually boys between the ages of 8 – 14 who are into reading books which are full of action/adventure, fantasy/magic, and of course dragons; there are some girls who will enjoy reading as well [parents will have to decide if their daughter[s] is one of them.

With all things considered, I’m happy to Ms. Lee 5 STARS for her endeavor here.
