Format: Hardcover
Prospero Regained is the third and the last book in L. Jagi Lamplighter's Prospero's Daughter trilogy, and I am going to use this space to talk about the series as a whole, as well as the final volume in the trilogy in particular.

Prospero Regained is the conclusion to the story of Miranda, daughter of Prospero. Yes, the Miranda and Prosspero from Shakespeare's play, the Tempest. In this world, thanks to the sorcerous nature of the Prospero family, and not least because of Miranda's consecration to Eurynome, the Unicorn, the fractious and fractured Prospero family has survived several hundred years. At the beginning of the first book, Prospero Lost, Miranda discovers her father is missing, and sets off on a voyage of discovery, reunion with her siblings, and her first encounters with the evil that seeks to destroy the Prospero family. Miranda and her siblings, meet, quarrel and eventually learn that the patriarch of their clan is in a very real and Christian Hell, and in book two, Prospero in Hell, set about finding a way into that domain to locate and free their father.

Prospero Regained starts with the Prospero Family in dire straits, as a reversal at the end of Prospero in Hell has scattered the family throughout Hell. With time running out before the planned death of their father, Miranda must reunite her scattered siblings, and even more importantly, forge them together into a unit capable of finding their father, finding the true enemy that holds him, and undoing the enemy's plan. Oh, and find out the truth about herself and some more family secrets that have laid secret for centuries...

This is one of the best books I have ever read, let alone in the past year or so. She weaves a serious tale of hope but keeps it light enough that it's not depressing. I won't spoil anything but I love the final message of the book.

Why we need to believe...

Have you ever experienced a connection physically, an awareness of a `felt center' or inner core that connects with a matching/mirror inner core of a person or `thing' in the outer world? If you haven't, you soon will by reading the Prospero Trilogy by L. Jagi Lamplighter. If ever there was a literary weaving of faith, hope and love (and a great deal of intelligence, adventure and fun, besides!), it resides in these volumes. The tapestry of plot and character and unique style wraps around the reader's body taking the shape of a circle. Then, abundant connections are made as we read, not only between our inner core, the characters in the books, but nature itself. We feel supported by this circle in our life and in our world. Aeons of history are lovingly contained in this series. To believe in the genius of L. Jagi Lamplighter is simply to believe in one's own authenticity, in one's own mythology, as her character's all come to do. This new life, though very powerful is also fragile. Transition is process and a work with a process, and one must trust the divine force within it. For me, L. Jagi Lamplighter has created a `multi-verse' that we can all fit into and believe in. A multiverse of faith in "Prospero Lost", of hope in "Prospero in Hell", and finally of love in "Prospero Regained". This is an unbroken sacred hoop of literature. What more could anyone ask for, except, when is the next series coming out!? Live long and `Prospero', indeed, L. Jagi Lamplighter!

Very often a series that spans multiple volumes can have an unsatisfying conclusion, thereby disqualifying it from space on my bookshelf. This book, however, may just earn the trilogy a spot on my already-overstuffed shelves, despite the fact that I've already bought all three on Kindle! The descriptions of the regions of Hell that Miranda and company have to traverse are just the right level of "ew gross this IS hell" but handled with enough delicacy to keep me reading, i.e. it's not gore porn. (Or Porn porn. They do have to travel through swamps made of lust.) Thankfully they do not, in fact, have to redo Dante's Inferno and travel all of Hell itself to reach their destination, which probably would have dragged on too long: Insane Demon Brother Mephisto has a handy MacGuffin or two. The mysteries surrounding the family, and Miranda herself, are tied up in a way I totally did not see coming, but made perfect sense once explained. (SPOILER: The sadistic brother even redeems himself!)

While the last volume does wrap up the three-book story rather well, I do find myself wishing that the author would do short stories set in the same universe: there's a lot of potential "playground" left to work with as far as fallout from the main plot goes!

If you liked this series, you might also like this short story by Sarah Hoyt: Something Worse Hereafter or this collection of three books that puts Shakespeare in the middle of fairy plots! Magical Shakespeare Omnibus

Format: Hardcover
"Prospero Regained" (Tor, $25.99, 384 pages) wraps up a trilogy loosely based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest." Miranda, Prospero's daughter, is the protagonist, but she now has siblings who are trying to rescue their father, who is trapped in hell. As with many such series, it's almost imperative to read the first two books ("Prospero Lost" and "Prospero in Hell") to have any sense of what's happening, and even then it's a strain, as J. Lagi Lamplighter's method is to set up mysteries, often early in the series, and then reveal the solution at the end of "Prospero Regained." The result is that some of the solved mysteries happened so long ago that only a very attentive reader will remember them, which tends to cut into the drama of the revealed solutions.

Still, the trilogy is reasonably good fun (though I got very tired of Hell, which is where most of this book is set) and there are some interesting theological issues raised by the Catholic notion of Hell that Lamplighter goes toe-to-toe with. The ending is somewhat pat, and thus a little bit of a letdown but at least Lamplighter lets her characters enjoy a few pages of reward after nearly three volumes of struggle.
