Review

The Lost City, Book Three of The Princelings trilogy is a great read for those who love fantasy with young male protagonists. The plot is new, interesting, and will engage your mind in the story. A great work was created by the author with this trilogy. I enjoyed the well-developed characters and their many adventures.

In this book, the twins have more mysteries to solve: a copy of Princess Kira has a very important secret mission. Fred is worried about his fiancée Kira, for she is throwing herself into Prince Hunston's arms, and men aren't allowed in Arbor, the Lost City of legend.

In all, this is a very nice piece of writing. The trilogy has been completed without leaving any loose ends. I would have to say that this has been an overall enchanting trip into a fantasy realm. It is suitable for readers from pre-teens to adults alike. It is a clean and wholesome series and readers will be happy owning these books. Happy readings.

More About the Author

I know I've been writing since I was about 8 years old. I remember making a speech I'd written to 'unveil' the patio my dad had laid at our house (with our 'help'), and when my mum died in 2003, I found a small booklet in her box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled The Little Stream. Yes, I remembered it well!

I've been creating articles and event reports for newsletters and magazines ever since, but early fiction attempts failed for want of suitable inspiration: I just couldn't find interesting characters and plot! I had a series of careers in business which kept me chained to a desk for many years. So I wrote manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing. Finally the characters jumped into my head with stories that needed to be told, and THE PRINCELINGS OF THE EAST was born.

I now live in Norfolk, England with my guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for my stories. And the picture is me with Fred. That's Princeling Fred, of course!

This was my fourth foray into the magical kingdom of the Princelings and I was happy to renew my acquaintance with some old friends. Intrepid guinea pig siblings Fred and George find themselves embroiled in yet another hazardous adventure when they stumble across a seemingly uninhabited and abandoned castle. They are keen to solve the mystery, but then events take a sinister turn as Kira, Fred’s lovely fiancée, is snatched right from under their noses and an unknown lookalike takes her place. Why? What on earth is going on in this long-lost fortress? The plot thickens …

The answer turns out to be rather surprising, and I certainly won’t give the game away here, but Fred and George eventually uncover the somewhat unpalatable truth. The only thing I would say is that the implications of what has been taking place in the lost city may not make this book suitable reading for younger children. From a personal point of view, I was pleased that this story tied up some loose ends for me by explaining the origins of the character of Humphrey, whom I’d met in a previous adventure - now it all made sense! And I also began to understand more clearly the system of tunnels linking the separate kingdoms, which I’d found a little confusing before.

With The Princelings and the Lost City Jemima Pett has created another tale filled with wonderful characters, intrigue and excitement, not to mention George’s new use for Strawberry Juice … to power flying machines! As ever, this latest episode in the series is beautifully written and I have to mention the adorable little sketches drawn by the author at the beginning of each chapter, which certainly add to the appeal of these charming books.

A sinister city, a secret society run only by females, capture by bandits and sneaky impersonations! What more does a story need? Well, besides Fred and George, the incomparable Princelings from Marsh Castle, and an airplane that runs on strawberry juice. The third book in the Princelings of the East series has a tight plot, just enough suspense, and a happy ending. Editing and language are as always top-notch, and the plot is fun and generally believable (once you engage in the willing suspension of disbelief necessary to buy into a world of guinea pigs that runs on strawberry juice, of course).

This book may verge a little onto YA territory rather than MG, though it is completely clean and there is little violence. The less-savory aspects of the culture of Castle Arbor are never directly stated, so it is likely that younger children will miss the implications, but they are there. I would not have hesitated to give it to my boys when they were the right age (being teens, they no doubt can now find or invent eyebrow-raising implications anywhere they want).

More to the point, the book grabbed me within a few pages, and I soon reached the point where I didn't want to stop until everyone was safe! I lost a little sleep with this one because I just had to finish.

Yet another great addition to the world of the Princelings, and I heartily recommend it!
