As the book cover implies, Ben's mother is from a world of dragons, but he doesn't yet know that he's half dragon or that there are other worlds. He's been raised on earth by his father. He attends a private school that trains "special" students who are chosen to travel between worlds and help when there is trouble. These students are also blessed with 3 gifts that they can use on their quest. Ben finds out he is one of these chosen ones but has a hard time accepting it. Ben is a young man I could relate to. He has an unexplainable fear of water. But that doesn't make it any less of a problem. He can't swim. People have tried to teach him, but no matter how hard he tries or flogs around, he sinks like a stone. So when he is chosen to go to Lushaka to help restore peace between the Mer-people and humans - (a watery world where only small islands of land exist) - he is instantly thrust into his worst nightmare. He doesn't believe he could possibly be the right choice for the task at hand and most others agree with him. Despite Ben's fear and lack of confidence, he ends up finding the courage to go. Ben's story is filled with adventure, danger, and suspense. The young hero is joined by two others on his journey. A Lushakan human and a Mermaid. Arch enemies. They must put aside their prejudices and learn to work together to fight against all the dangerous creatures along their journey in order restore the Mer King's crown that was stolen and avert war between their people. Unhappily, the island where they are headed is more dangerous than the much larger ocean Ben is so afraid of. There are enough scary monsters and poisonous creatures to fill up Australia:)  Ben the Dragonborn is the 1st in the Six Worlds series, so I look forward to learning about the other worlds and following Ben's adventures as he explores his gifts further and learns more about his dragon heritage. I'm confident middle graders and up will enjoy and get caught up in this thrilling new young adult adventure.
