Although nothing earmarking a specific set of religious beliefs, I was drawn to many religious themes as I read.

The Nameless Prince is a beautifully-crafted debut YA novel about faith, disillusionment and innocence.

I love how the author presents the different realities and how he borrows concepts from quantum physics to enrich his plot: none of the alternate universes are true unless you step into them. There are parallels with Moses and Noah's Ark and of course the novel is, like Alice in Wonderland, a "through the whole" story. At times, the novel reminded me of the film, Pan's Labyrinth, where the young protagonist also escapes into an eerie and captivating fantasy world. However, The Nameless Prince isn't as violent or sadistic. Ultimately, it is a story about the balance of the universe: goodness may win but there are always new evil forces at work. In other words, "maintaining harmony is an eternal struggle."

Though Seth is ten years old, I'd say the audience for this book is 12 and up, and that includes adult readers as well. The Nameless Prince isn't your typical YA fantasy novel published these days. Yes, it is a classic hero's journey with all the tests and riddles, but it is also a book full of interesting ideas and substance. In short, it is a book that stimulates the mind and intellect. Recommended!

Sometimes a thin line exists between fantasy and reality. Or perhaps the two blend together as one, forming our lives. Dreams often seem so real, we believe they actually happened. It's possible they have.

Author Dominick R. Domingo's debut young adult novel, THE NAMELESS PRINCE, takes the reader on a journey between the real world and the fantasy world of ten-year-old Seth Bauman's life. Abandoned by his mother after his birth, his father dead before his birth, Seth lives with his uncle, Troy, and Troy's girlfriend, Cheryll. Seth has questions about his mother. Troy has answers, but refuses to reveal the truth to Seth. He also has to deal with the school bully, and protect Elena Gomez, the new girl from Mexico, as well as himself from the tough Mayan gang. To complicate his life even more, the Mayans spot Seth and Elena at the portal underneath Interstate 5. As they attempt to escape, Seth falls and is knocked unconscious. He awakes in a new world of tunnels, creatures that talk, and prophesies, known as "The Interior," where he is called "The Nameless Prince," the long-lost twin of King Amado. Elena has vanished, kidnapped by the Dark Forces. Seth has no idea what all this means, but he begins an adventure not only to save Elena, but to discover the truth about his mother, father, and himself, as well.

Riddles to solve and a book titled The Unfinished Story lead Seth down a trail of danger, hope, and ultimately trust and understanding. There's plenty of action to keep young readers turning the pages, older readers, too. THE NAMELESS PRINCE is a story of family, love, forgiveness, faith, and trust. The novel would make a great addition to middle school and high school libraries, and personal libraries also. The author describes the scenes so vividly you can picture the "peculiar little sphere, an eyeball" and other nice imagery. A lovely debut novel.

This is a book about strength, courage and doing the right thing. It's a universal story that's told in such a fabulous modern way, which makes it an instant classic. The characters are very relateable and their struggles are your struggles. The artwork is mind-blowing! It's very easy to get lost in this book. I recommend this book highly!

REVIEW
THE NAMELESS PRINCE

Seth Bauman is not a happy 10 year old boy. His mother vanished shortly after his birth, and his Uncle Troy, who is raising him, is cruel. They live in the dangerous Silver Lake neighborhood of L.A. inhabited by the Mayan gang. Seth is also unhappy because he must walk home Elena Gomez, a 10 year old Mexican immigrant. Uncle Troy's dangerous Mayan drug associates come after Seth while he and Elena are on the bridge above the L.A. Wash. They kidnap Elena, and though Seth sustains a head injury, the occupant of the homemade structure on the L.A. Wash's island rescues him. The Faun, or Constantine, claims to be the gatekeeper and insists Seth is the Nameless Prince of the Magical place, Interia. He takes Seth through the network of sewers, now catacombs, guided by a dragonfly on Constantine's shoulder. Creatures from the Wash that help, including polywogs he and Elena named, are now giants. Along with very different creatures, hey encounter a lot of danger. Seth meets his twin, Amado and learns if he doesn't correctly answer the riddles to prove he's the Nameless Prince, and give his real name, he will die. Constantly fighting against the Dark Forces, he answers the riddles, finds Joy, the king's missing wife, and learns he's been duped. He gathers creatures to find arms to fight against the Dark Forces and ends up fighting one of his emissaries. About to lose, Seth finds himself back home. The police have arrested the Mayans and his uncle, but Elena is still missing. Seth returns to Interia, rescues Elena and learns the truth about his mother and makes peace with Troy and Cheryll, and resolves his feelings of abandonment.

The Nameless Prince is a wonderful YA fantasy that I absolutely couldn't put down.
