Product Description

Product Description

Ben was just your typical teenager – loud, obnoxious and always getting himself into hot water. Coming from a troubled household, it’s no wonder Ben’s been on the wrong side of the tracks lately. Ben thinks that his troubles can't possibly get any worse.

How wrong he was...

Not long after being mysteriously teleported to the world of Draconica, Ben gets caught up in a Baalarian invasion – who are hell-bent on capturing him. But what did Ben ever do to upset them?

With no idea how he got here – and with intentions only on getting home, Ben embarks on a fantastical journey. Joining forces with the Dragonkin sisters Daniar and Erowin, Ben must help them take down the Empire before their dark grasp tightens across the land.

Little does Ben realise that his role in this battle is far more vital than he realises – and that his coming here was no accident.

Written by new author Dan Wright and featuring incredible artwork by Alexis M.Centeno, Trapped on Draconica is an epic adventure that takes you on an incredible journey that you want to visit again and again. Join in the trails, tribulations, laugher and heartbreak as you follow Ben on an epic adventure that will change his life forever.

About the Author

Born in Canterbury, Kent, UK, Dan has always dreamt of being a writer. From a young age, he loved to read and hear about fairy tale stories that involved knights and dragons. Trapped on Draconica is his first book, written over 5 years, which is inspired by those very stories - but also including Manga style humour and action, of which Dan is also a fan. Though a fan of all genres, Dan considers his real passion for writing is fantasy and science fiction, he is also a fan of comic books. His favourite authors (which inspired his writing) are Douglas Adams, J.R.R Tolkien, Harlan Ellison, Alan Moore, Joss Whedon and Hiromu Arakawa.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Trapped on Draconica" traps the reader 21 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Ben, the central character in "Trapped on Draconica", is not really the hero type. Shortly after the book starts we seem him being chased by a policeman after an unsuccessful attempt to rob a news agent. One minute the policeman is breathing down his neck and then in the next - he's in a strange world and things start to get heavy.
He meets a variety of strange characters. That's good strange and bad strange. Shortly after he arrives on Draconica events take a turn that makes being chased by a policeman seem something to wish for! Together with a group of people he's only just met he is forced on a quest to save Draconica because that is the only possibility - slight though it may be - of getting off this strange planet.
The journey changes him, it changes them all. Only one of the characters in the book is the same at the end as they are at the start. I'll let you discover who that is for yourselves.
However nothings is always what it seems. People do strange things for even stranger reasons. We can turn T.S. Eliots famous phrase "to do the right thing for the wrong reason" around and say that some of the characters are doing the "wrong thing for the right reason". But there is also friendship and love that enable the central group to continue on their journey.
However, we don't need to go too deep into the psychology of the people. First and foremost this is a cracking good yarn that will keep you going to the end of the book. We mustn't forget the pictures that accompany the story. They are small works of art of their own and perfectly complement the style and substance of the story.
All in all a book worth a few Quid - Dollars - Euros of your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can I be Trapped on Draconica too? 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback
My first Dragonkin exposure came from a direct review request for the Legacy of Dragonkin, the second book of this series. Having enjoyed that book, Dan Wright offered to let me read Trapped on Draconica, the first book in the series.
As a whole, the concept of a multi-dimensional universe is interesting, as well as the characters' personalities, most of which are side characters. I wished Ben had chance to develop more, I feel like he's an observer in his own story. Each character has been blessed with a certain set of powers which may sometimes be almost god-like; a clear definition of each type of power would give the novel a more manga-like feel. Action scenes are colored by manga-humor alleviating the tension and adding a splash of comic relief. Intertwined within the story are the amusing love interests between the characters. I especially like the portrayal of Kalar in all his tsundere (usually aloof, irritable or violent, but can be sweet and loving in private, especially when she/he is with someone she/he cares about) personality.
Being a huge fan of HEA, seeing the characters celebrate their happy ending in this book is delightful. A surprise in the epilogue will surely leave the readers thinking more about the despicable villain. As I previously stated in my review of the second book in this series, manga and anime otakus will surely find a lot of new things to enjoy and more situations to relate to in this book.

I was provided an eBook copy by the author for the purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review--all conclusions are my own responsibility.
