Dragon Quest Available – sightseeing only, strictly no hunting.
Once in a lifetime opportunity.
Meeting at the Beijing portal in under two hours.
Ben Hackett is one of the youngest trillionaires on Earth, and obsessed with dragons. Now, thanks to a new venture in portal tourism offered by the mysterious Stillwater Project, he’s finally in a position to do something about it.
Because dragons exist.
And, for the right price, he can go and see one in the flesh.
Catapulted through a portal to the medieval world of Vangura, Ben and a small group of similarly-minded adventurers find themselves high in the Seghiri mountains, where a large red dragon has been spotted for the first time in years. Together, and under the less-than-watchful eye of their hapless Stillwater guide, they set off on an expedition to find the dragon, risking life and limb along the way.
But is everybody in the group really there just to observe the dragon, or do some of them have more sinister objectives? With an ex-special forces veteran one of the only friendly faces amongst the mix of off-duty Stillwater bounty hunters, a potential Russian gangster, and a mage who seems to prefer communicating with animals, who exactly will Ben be able to rely on if and when things go south?
It quickly becomes clear that this isn’t a game. There’s no option to Save and Reset when the swords start swinging and the blood starts flowing. Stillwater will do everything in their power to keep them all alive but, at the end of the day, that just might not be enough. Especially if they disturb that dragon.
