"I LOVED the dragons! Totally hooked and want to hear more!"
-- M. Tate, Book Reviewer
Ten-year-old Andy Smithson believes he is merely a kid too often in trouble with his overambitious parents--until his destiny as the Chosen One to break a 500-year-old curse is revealed. Swept away to the land of Oomaldee of medieval times, he discovers he must collect several ingredients for a magic potion to defeat the oppressive curse that plagues the land, the first of which is the scale of a red dragon, the fiercest of all dragon species. There's just one tiny problem, he's never battled dragons, except in his Dragons Slayer video game. Armed with only his wits, an ancient sword and a magic key, he must overcome grave peril at every turn before he can even attempt the feat. No pressure, but it's his skill alone that will save - or condemn - the kingdom forever.

It was a good book. Sure the writing could've been a bit better and there were a few to many coincidences for my taste but the plot isn't bad and the characters are loveable. Overall a good book, I had fun reading it, and I hope other do to.
