If you could sum up The Blue Dragon's Geas in three words, what would they be?
Riveting, Can't Stop listening
What did you like best about this story?
The twist and turns. About the time you think you know what is going to happen next. The author throws a twist or turn into the mix and does something totally different then what I am expecting. I love this time of book keep me engage. Nothing worth then thinking you know what is going to happen and you are right. With This book you won't have that problem.
What does Paul Woodson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He bring a great deal of care to the characters. His different voices and reflections you would almost think they are different readers and he does each character. He does so well that you will fill the different emotions as you are taken through a roller coaster of emotions. From happy to anger to bewilderment.
Any additional comments?
I am a long haul truck driver. If you are a truck driver or just some one who drives a long Distance or are just on the road several times a day. This is a good book to help pass the time away. You will get caught up in the story and if you haven't finished it by the time you Finnish your drive you won't want to stop it.
This would also be a good book to relax at home and just lay back and enjoy. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and find this review help full.

Much more complex than you would think
By looking at the blurb of this book, and the length you think YA / Coming of Age Story filled with tried and true tropes.
You would be wrong. I was wrong.
This is a coming of age story. However it is so much more realistic, in that often as teenagers we do not realise how good we have things till they are taken away or our circumstances change.
Yes a boy does develop magical powers, and yes there are dragons, but not in the way you assume.
The narration was excellent, the narrator does not do multiple voices like some of the greats, but they are more than distinct enough to understand who is talking.
I highly recommend this book, it has some very adult themes in it but they are all looked at very tastefully. There is sex in this book, but again it is done tastefully. This is not a romance book pretending to be fantasy, this is not an erotic book pretending to be fantasy, this is not a 'typical' fantasy story at all.
Don't let the blurb fool you - and enjoy the book. I'm just starting the second one now after just finishing the first!
