Andy Smithson: Blast of the Dragon’s Fury by L. R. W. Lee

Genre: Young Adult
Published by: CreateSpace
Pages: Paper Back
Ratings: 2 JAGS
Blast of the Dragon’s fury is a pretween story about a young boy and the difficult decisions he has to make to save the land of Oomaldee, and find his way back home. After the murderous deaths of the King, Queen and the Princess Imogenia by the hand of the Prince, Princess Imogenia makes a deal in the spirit world to curse the land of Oomaldee until her brother the Prince, is punished for his crimes.
Flash forward one hundred years and a different world away, Andy Smithson is in trouble once again and this time his punishment isn’t no video games, but instead a journey that will teach him lessons about the person that he can become.
Blast of the Dragon’s fury was a snooze. Nothing about this book was memorable, except the plot of the story explained everything right away, with absolutely minimal story being told with no use of the imagination. The oblivious plugs of better known children story characters did nothing to help along this story. Children may like it, but that is a big if-if they are not already readers to begin with. Sadly, this is not one of those hidden gems that could hook your child into reading.
