Dunderland by Alan Brickett follows Dunderland, a magical being incarcerated in an interstellar prison for the universe's worst criminals. Using cunning and his remarkable powers, Dunderland explores the prison, looking for a way to escape the supposedly inescapable prison for the second time. In his journey of self-discovery, he meets and often fights beings of extraordinary power.
Alan Brickett provides a riveting narrative which largely focuses on the main character, Dunderland. Dunderland literally lives in his mind and rarely interacts with other prisoners. The narrative/dialogue balance is perfect for this kind of book. When he did speak, Dunderland always had something pivotal to say. The descriptions of the alien landscapes are as vivid as they are believable. Each alien being Dunderland comes across is unique, but they have one thing in common: the fight for survival at all costs.
The best part about this book is that it allows the reader to explore the core drivers of any person's character. It challenges the reader to become a creature of survival rather than a person who gives up hope, the very thing that keeps us going day after day. Dunderland carves a place for himself in the prison; he doesn't let anything discourage him from his chosen path - a quality that helped him. This book would make a great movie in the epic themes of Star Wars, Star Trek and the like. Another thing of note is the amazing battle scenes in this book. I applaud the author on his ability to make the reader live and feel the action.
