Barely into his teens, Ben Anthony has not had it easy. With his father in prison, his mother struggling to keep him under control and his friends little more than criminals in the making, Ben is already on a self-destructive path. But his life is about to get much worse.

Teleported to the world where dragons once ruled, Ben finds himself the target of the malign Baalarian Empire – of which Emperor Gothon seeks to capture him for reasons yet unknown. Teaming with warrior Princess Daniar Dragonkin, her altruistic sister Erowin and the revenge seeking Leonidan Prince Kalak, Ben sets out on a reluctant quest to find his way home. And thus begins his incredible adventure…

In Trapped on Draconica, teenage Ben Anthony hasn’t had an easy life, and it’s about to get worse as he gets teleported to a different world – one where dragons once ruled, and Ben becomes a target of the Baalarian Empire, of which the emperor, Gothon, wnts to capture him.

Along the way, he meets new companions in the form of Princess Daniar Dragonkin, and her sister Erowin. I liked both of these characters, in particular Erowin. He also meets Kalak, who is out for revenge, and along with this band of sidekicks, Ben has to save the world.

While I liked Ben well enoguh, although he came across as a little bratty at first, I didn’t like Kalah that much, and it took a while to warm up to them. The other characters I liked almost right away, even the evil ones, since they performed their roles of villains quite well.

I’m also a huge fan of dragons, so really, just add in dragons anywhere, and I’m sold. The story is solid, though, and very entertaining. The characters go on the typical fantasy quest, grow and develop their personalities as the quests enfolds, and although quite typical for a fantasy story, the author does add in enough creative and original factors to keep it entertaining.

I’m sure young adults will love this, and I certainly enjoyed it too.
