Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this second adventure in the Pendragon Quartet, readers find 14-year-old Bobby Pendragon traveling through the "flume" to Cloral with his Uncle Press, in pursuit of Saint Dane. This waterworld with a vague Australian/Atlantis air will likely intrigue fans who enjoyed the aquatic world of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the teamwork escape aspect of Journey to the Center of the Earth. Bobby is still uncertain about what happened to his family after he was recruited as a "Traveler," a heroic role that first pitted him against the shapechanging monster, Saint Dane, in the series' debut, The Merchant of Death. It's a radically different life from that of junior high student in Stony Brook, Conn., where his friends Mark and Courtney eagerly await the journals in which he updates them with the latest events from various colorful "Territories." In the fabled city of Faar, beneath the waves, Bobby meets Spader, who is also a Traveler, and quickly becomes his first mate. Unbeknownst to Spader, his submerged city is partially responsible for the peace felt above the surface in the floating habitats. When Saint Dane decides to annihilate Faar, Bobby and his Traveler buddies must race to outwit the villain. MacHale embellishes his science fiction with just enough silly touches to leaven the mood; for instance, when the magic ring that Bobby gave Mark twitches (which means it's about to "deliver" Bobby's journals), it expands so that Mark must remove it, and the glowing stone transforms into a "black hole," spewing musical notes and light. Next up: The Never War, which will feature First Earth, circa 1937. Ages 10-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Just back from saving the population of Denduron from the evil shape-changer Saint Dane in The Merchant of Death (Aladdin, 2002), 14-year-old Bobby Pendragon and his Uncle Press are fluming off again, this time to Cloral, where Saint Dane is again causing mayhem. In this beautiful blue-green world covered with water, Bobby learns to navigate via water sled, lives and works on one of the giant floating habitats that serve as farms and factories as well as homes, and makes friends with Vo Spader, an expert aquaneer. The mission is to find the legendary lost city of Faar before Saint Dane can use it in his quest to control the universe. The story is long, the action is fast and furious, and things aren't exactly calm back on Second Earth, as Bobby's Connecticut friends follow the story via the journals he sends back. The town bully has discovered one of the pages and is threatening to expose Bobby's secret mission to the police (who have no idea why Bobby and his family have disappeared) if Mark and Courtney don't share the journals with him. The science is thin but the ideas are clever and the descriptions inviting and easy to picture. Character development is minimal and limited to fairly stereotypical good guys and bad guys. However, the teenaged protagonists enlist readers' sympathy and involvement and the nonstop plot developments keep the many pages turning and readers wanting more. As the situation on Cloral is resolved, the stage is set for the next book in the series.

Format: Paperback
In my opinion, Pendragon-The Lost City of Faar, by D.J. MacHale, is definitely the best book in the series so far. The story is about a 14 year-old boy named Bobby Pendragon. Bobby "flumes" to different territories to help them through their "turning point." In this book Bobby flumes to Cloral, which is a territory entirely covered with water. There, he finds the evil Saint Dane who attempts to push territories into chaos. In this story, Saint Dane is attempting to throw Cloral into total chaos by poisoning their food supply. During the course of the story, Bobby encounters many unforeseen dangers. However, the real question is, can Bobby help to save Cloral and restore the territory back to peace?
This book was a very exciting book to read. I loved how it starts up right from where the first book, The Merchant of Death, left off. The author describes all of the new territories and characters in EXCELLENT detail. I felt as if I was in the story experiencing everything Bobby was. The author also keeps the reader in suspense throughout the entire book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an action-packed fantasy with a "futuristic" feel to it. I really enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read the third one in the series!!!

I'll admit that this book is aimed at a little lower reading level then I am at(I'm 15 in an Honors English class)but I love the Pendragon series. The Merchant of Death was a great book and it would have been hard for another book to beat it, but Faar does so, and with flying colors. The locations are fantastic, the action intense and the suspense high. The only complaint I have for this series is that the events that happen around Mark and Courtney seem boring compared to the story Pendragon is expirencing. Mark's character is kind of unbelievable and lame. However don't let that discourage you from reading this book.

Format: Paperback
The Pendragon series gets better with the second book. Bobby Pendragon begins to accept his role as a traveler and is forced to become a mentor as well. The traveler role becomes clearer in this book, and Cloral is a very interesting world with all of its high-tech water-based technology. MacHale keeps the series interesting by continuing to surpass his creativity with each new world that Bobby and the travelers encounter while trying to foil Saint Dane's plans to destroy Halla(The Universe).

I also liked the newer element of time travel that relates to a realm we all understand--Second Earth(Earth).

This book is fast-paced and intriguing--those are the two elements I look for when reading a book. The Pendragon series has satisfied those conditions thus far.

I hope the rest in the series are as good as the first two are.

Format: Paperback
This book is simply, AWESOME! I really enjoyed The Merchant of Death and I waited a long time for the sequel to come out. The Lost City of Faar is, if this is possible, better than the first one. There is a lot of suspense in this book as Bobby Pendragon and Uncle Press continue their adventures through time and space. In this book, they go to the territory of Cloral (a water world), where they have to find out what Saint Dane's newest evil scheme is. Will they survive? Find out in The Lost City of Faar...

This book is truly one of the best books I have ever read. I could not put it down, and it is really hard for me to sit around and wait for the next Pendragon book to come out. For those of you fantasy fans this is the perfect book filled with action, adventure, and magic. So I suggest buying this book immediately.

D.J MacHale has hit it big with his Pendragon series. The first book was hard to beat, but the second story in this series, Lost City of Faar was just as good as the first, maybe even better. We meet new characters, a new territory with all it's different quirks. Some unexpected things happen which keeps you wanting to read more! We see Bobby understand more and more about what he is and some mysteries are uncovered.
Highly recommended if you enjoyed the first book, Liked books such as "So you want to be a wizard", "Harry Potter and ..." and The "Dark is Rising".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book, Bobby and Uncle Press are on their way to Cloral, the water world. All the people on Cloral live on boat-like cites and coexist in peace. The inhabitants of Coral make good use of their environment; water is used in many creative ways, from powering cool little gadgets to the material used in building. But Saint Dane has come to Cloral and so the perfect world will not be perfect much longer, unless Bobby, Press, and Spader can save it.

When I read the first Pendragon book I was a little confused, trying to figure out whether or not I liked it. When I saw this book at the library, I decided to give this series another chance. And I am glad I did! This book is better then the first one. The authors writing has improved greatly and the story is more engaging and interesting. I really enjoyed reading about the fascinating and fantastical world of Cloral, as well as the introduction of the character Spader. I look forward to reading more of Bobby's adventures and the many worlds he will visit!
