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.

Fun but not fulfilling its potential

This was a fun read, or listen rather, but I felt like the book was in need of some heavy editing. For the most part it's light hearted and fun, a sort of fantasy slice of life story about how a kid basically becomes an unstoppable god by sheer accident. About half way through a character that was a funny foil is suddenly revealed to be a villain, with no foreshadowing at his true nature and that threw me out of the story. Not to mention the dissonance between everything before that and the sudden evil man and his evil plan. Only for him to be dispatched soon afterwards and another villain to sprout up. The ending felt less like a conclusion to this story and more like a third party just said "don't want to get over 18 hours, so we'll stop here". With how this is written, it doesn't feel like a story with a concrete conclusion. I think this story could have been chopped and edited into to two, maybe three great books, but instead is just one solid lump of an alright story. It might sound like I'm hating on it, but I don't. I'm just disappointed by the fact that there's so much potential in the story but it falls too short of it.

Also the narration by Mare Trevathan is fantastic! Regardless of my issues with the book, I'd almost recommend listening to it just for her performances. I fear if that I read just the text, I might not have liked the book as much.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
