Dragon Island


This Review:★★★★★

Average Rating: 5 ★★★★★

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.
