PRAISE FOR DRAGON ISLAND

“Shane Berryhill gives Japanese mythology an action-packed, 21st century reboot with monsters, bigger monsters, and insanely big monsters!”  – Tom Angleberger, author of ‘The Strange Case of Origami Yoda’ and winner of the 2011 E.B. White Read Aloud and Dorothy Canfield Fisher Awards

    Darren Pulsford

    What at first seems just a crazy and wild ride for a teenager through an Island packed with one of every Manga and Daikaiju trope – replete with foolish quests, baddies that cheat and even some romance – turns out to be a very clever study of relationships.

    The boy and his father have a difficult relationship, played out across the travails of the beleaguered villagers, the mysterious mystics and the objects of various quests – as our hero battles to come to terms with his own identity, his own abilities and the coming of age of a very capable young man.

    Colourfully written – Dragon Island will appeal to ages from YA upwards with its evocative landscape, mad array of mythical creatures and well-crafted action.
