All Hail Emperor GothonAll Hail Emperor Gothon by Dan Wright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ruthless, unforgiving, and downright evil, Emperor Gothon was built to be hated and despised by the readers in Dan Wright's first book of the Draconica Series, Trapped in Draconica. Several questions like how he ended up like this and if his despicable nature was inborn or if there was some cataclysmic event that triggered it, had risen. All of these, and a couple more you might think of, are answered in this novelette, All Hail Emperor Gothon. This is a darkly realistic and gritty story that reveals how fame and power easily corrupts the fragile human mind. Frank narrative and unexpected plot fills each page revealing Gothon's multi-stage development clearly. The narrative is engaging and easily understood. Each character's unique personalities and characteristics has been unerringly displayed, giving the readers a clear view of what type of person or being those characters were. Due to some dark graphic scenes and the subject matter, this novella might not be for the young reader. Though different from the usual manga influenced books that I have read from this author, the solid story arc, plotting, and characterization made this a highly satisfying read. I have been given an e-book copy of the author. I was not compensated for this review. All conclusions are my own responsibility
