Hilarious

I have to say that this is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time.
I’d say that if you like The Princess Bride, then this book is for you.

Love this series

Really worth reading/listening to. Enough so that I’ve bought the kindle and audio editions. And listened to multiple times. Original. Funny. Light. Long. Fantastic use of a credit.

Bizarre but fun.

This is one of the strangest stories I’ve ever read, basically if someone decided to write a crack fanfic of a fantasy story and turn it into a novel. That said I was laughing often enough that it doesn’t feel right to give this anything but a high rating.

Totally Different in a very good way

it's... not a parody, and almost not even a novel. more a collection of short stories that just flow into each other? A heck of a ride all the way through, even if the modern speech patterns are hard to swallow at first. Definitely worth your time if you want something new and different from fantasy.

aka, "How to Train Your Human"

Would you listen to The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons again? Why?

While not deep by any means, it was entertaining and enjoyable. Unfortunate title, however.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons?

I enjoyed the first part of the book where the human boy was being taught to hunt by a dragon, but did something that a five year old would very much do.

Which character – as performed by Mare Trevathan – was your favorite?

Probably the demon princess. I enjoyed the tension between her desires and her parent's expectations.

Who was the most memorable character of The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons and why?

The titular character was probably the most memorable. He honestly sounds like something out out myth with how outlandish his actions are and the reasons he sought to do them.

Any additional comments?

A rather enjoyable book, really. Not a deep read, but I laughed and was actually surprised a few times.

I do feel bad for that flying eyeball creature and what was done to him. Ow.

Some fun moments, overall a bit mediocre

I only got halfway through this, unfortunately. I struggled to feel engaged by the storyline, to me it feels like a series of fairly unconnected events that just happen one after another, all at quite a slow, ponderous pace. Perhaps some momentous event occurs at the end of the story that miraculously ties everything together? Sadly i couldn't remain interested long enough to find out. The passage of time doesn't feel "right", and the main characters' ages don't make a lot of sense to me.

I didn't find a lot of comedy in the writing, and what there was is generally on the level of toilet-humour. There's also quite a few "modern" colloquialisms that felt out of place to me.

Some of the characters are well written, in particular the demon girl and the guardian of the fountain, but many others feel very incidental and under-developed. The dragons are entertaining, although they feel to me like the story wouldn't really change a lot if they weren't there at all.

I suspect this style of book just isn't my thing. It reads a bit like a group of people playing a DnD campaign. "Levels", "Classes", etc, are a Thing in this world, characters are aware of their own numerical stats. To me that makes it feel as though the characters themselves are playing a game, and not really taking their own actions seriously.

Bad Parenting 101

Five Star really?

This must get really good after the first few hours because this book made me take up drinking and meth, although It was focus around the Blue Mage character who is a star of cringy slap stick comedy so maybe It was a reading a soap-opera that caused it?

Make no mistake it is a COMEDY - Fantasy story, comedy first and not smart, intelligent but one that is aims low. The Fantasy is just the setting and environment just a room has blue walls (exciting and full of pink batts installation (hopefully)).

Anyway the Main character who I think was the blue mage as most of time was centred around him was un-bearable and I ready did stop listening to book after few hours because of him.

So, it may get better half way through, but I think taking up meth was a better use of my time.

this book is like the best trashy fan fiction.

despite knowing it's terrible but you enjoy it far more than you should. can't recommend this enough
