“An engaging story with the elements of fantasy woven neatly into the coming-of-age/discovering your identity theme.”
Ben’s father has disappeared. He never knew his mother. There is no one to help him understand the nightmares from his past. The principal is about to expel him when Ben is chosen by the Guardian of the Six Worlds to stop a war between humans and merfolk. Ben’s only chance of success depend on discovering the secret of his own true self in a terrifying water world where nightmares come to life.
Praise for Ben the Dragonborn
“Ben the Dragonborn is unique and original in every way. There are portals to unknown worlds; gifted children chosen for quests; an array of imaginative creatures; and a school that is magical and secretive. Fans of 100 Cupboards, Fablehaven, Percy Jackson, and Harry Potter will find something to love in this book.”

About the Author:
Ben the Dragonborn is a Six World’s Story by Dianne Astle
At one point in Dianne’s life she believed that people grew up and when they did they stopped reading Fantasy. She discovered that life without Fantasy was soon out of kilter. She never planned to be an author, but a chance week at a retreat centre dropped the idea for a story into her head. When not writing fiction, Dianne spends her time writing non-fiction, and seeking to help people discover the treasure of their own true selves so they can embark on their own hero’s quest. Dianne lives with her husband Doug, his three cats and her beloved dog Thomas.
