First of all, let me say this was a very fun, absorbing, well-written, nicely paced book!! Ford is one of those characters that we all think we know--the picked-on kid who has super special powers--but Campbell makes Ford far more real and complex than you might expect. The book also has a plot we all think we know--kid with strange powers has to save the world--but again, Campbell introduces unexpected elements and real-world grittiness that make Ford's struggle to find himself even more intere ...more

Dragon Night
By Stephanie  Campbell

How can I describe this lovely sad and fierce book to you?

Reading this book was like slipping into a fairy tale.  What is better...within the parameters of a story...than a lonely much aligned boy who doesn't fit in and is disliked and mistreated by his own parents?

Not much really.  Liddy and Wicker are the parents of Ford.  They force him to work in their diner, he sleeps in the basement, he's never even had a birthday party...he always smells like pancakes and

Ford always wanted to have some special abilities or powers to make him different from the other folks. You know, superpowers or unusual knowledge or something like that. But he never expected to be as different as he was…

This author does a nice job of creating a fantasy world that seems reasonable. Besides humans, her world holds draconians and dragons. And woe be to anyone who has been sired by a dragon.

Ford only knows his parents t

I'm not one to usually read in the science fiction and fantasy genre as they usually do not hold my attention as I find that they are filled with too much mind-blowing actitvity to even make sense but this book was the exception. Stephanie did an excellent job setting up the story and portraying the Ford's life before he knew he was special and how he felt that his life would be "greener on the other side of the fence". I liked how Stephanie created a struggle within Ford as he tried to figure o ...more

I received this e-book in exchange for my honest review. I read the summary and was immediately interested because I love dragon stories. Unfortunately, Dragon Night failed to make a good impression.

Dragon Night starts off introducing us to a woman who is going through a rough patch. Her husband is a gigantic a-hole and makes her hate her life. On the way home one night she is attacked. Speed forward 15 years and we are now introduced to her son, Ford. Ford's parents treat him like crap. Worse t

Ford is not one who fits in. The kids at school tease him for being different and some of them make jokes about his mother that he never understands. His parents treat him as a worker at the diner and not as a son. When he tries to ask them questions he gets punished, like put outside on a cold November night to sleep in the yard. He is expected to start work at 4am attend school and work again after. never getting to keep is tips. He is not allowed to call his parents "mom" or "dad" without dan ...more

Dragon Night was a pretty good story. I like the idea behind it, I like the characters and I love the dragons! But, somehow this story just didn't make me fall in love with it. I guess there were just times where it felt a little slow, kind of like there was just a bit too much detail? I'm no really sure, that's just how it felt for me. That doesn't mean a whole lot for me though, because there are dragons!! I was born in the year of the dragon, so I really like them and am fascinated with them! ...more

Dragon Night by Stephanie Campbell is a fast paced entertaining story that is well written. The main character Ford was someone you could relate to and written in a way that you could really understand him. The struggle that Ford faces is very real, very believable and so tragic that you can't help but hurt for him. There wasn't a lot of cosmetic detail to the book but that was ok because of the nature of the story. Stephanie Campbell added a whole new unique take on Dragons that you just don't ...more

A Wonderful, Magical, Dragon Ride
I was swept into this tale immediately by Ford, the misfit boy who did not fit in with his controlling parents, Liddy and Wicker Forks. Ford had spent most of his life working in his parent's diner, with no gratitude or pay for his services. Ford's world changes dramatically when his mother shares a secret with him one day and tells him the worst thing he could possibly hear. Wicker forks is not his father, his real father is an evil creep who followed his mother

"Ford faces a spectacular adventure. The author puts a twist on dragons that has never been done before. It is fantastic and heartwarming and impossible to put down. This is what bestsellers are made of."

Stephanie Campbell had her first book published at the age of seventeen. Now, at twenty, she is still wacking away at her computer, one day at a time. When she isn't reading or writing, she likes to dance, take karate lessons, and run. After all, you never know when you're about to be sucked into another world.

Some of Stephanie’s published works include:
