Excellent follow-up to "Awakenings". Ending of this book left you wanting to read the next without the TV style cliffhanger of the first book. The characters have grown and an interesting twist was added. Very nice work. I look forward to #3!

Take our normal real life and turn it upside down with witches and a secret land of Aandor in current time in the United States. What started off slightly confusing with the various story lines and characters created one very interesting plot. I wish I should have read Awakenings by Edward Lazellari first to get more of a background on the characters and main story though I was able to pick up where I presume that novel left off.

Very well written book that kept me interested down to the very la
An improvement on Book 1, this sequel is full of what Mr. Lazellari does best: scenes of people being people (even those pesky non-humans).

I really enjoyed seeing Seth's transformation over the course of this novel. Daniel's tentative acceptance of his role brings out his leadership qualities, but he still comes across as a teen just trying to roll with the punches. Even the bad guy's henchmen are well-rounded characters. I was saddened to see Cal's slow emotional collapse into an inflexible as

This book blew me away. What a great, great, great read. I love fantasy. I love stories where the land of magic bleeds into our modern world and carves away the day to day boredom we all sometimes feel. That you could turn a corner, you could find a box, you could look at a picture, you could pick up a book and the world suddenly expands and you are something more than you ever were before. You are part of two worlds. You are walking the streets of New York and the around the corner there is the ...more
Lazellari's engaging series continues with the solid addition of The Lost Prince. Tension gets higher in this sequel as the race to find the missing prince begins in earnest. Dorn's sanity wanes the longer he remains in this world, and he is at the end of his patience, willing to risk forbidden magic in order to turn the tide.

The guardians have been living their own lives for these past thirteen years, and not everyone is able to drop what they were doing to run to their prince's aid. This adds

The Lost Prince continues, and ratchets up, the action begun in Awakenings. You have to get through the first third of the book, which has a lot of set up and introduces several new characters, before it kicks into high gear, but the Butcher-esque high octane payoff is worth it. Although Lost Prince is the second book in the series, it has a more solid ending than its predecessor; more like Harry Potters 4 or 5 than Game of Thrones (no cliffhangers, but lots of promise of future tales). This lit ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. Malcolm, and Scott were my favorite characters in this book. The Jester was interesting, but I really liked reading about him because he reminded me of the Shakespearean Jesters that I read about especially in the book Troilus and Criseyde, and KIng Lear. This book was not slow, and it sucked me in the moment I picked it up, and the Epilogue, or god the epilogue just made me want to scream, because I knew this no third book yet, and I really need to read the t ...more
... Perhaps what impressed me most about this book was how well Lazellari blends fantasy and reality. Our world is still our world, but he weaves in the promise of something more so realistically that the reader can’t help but wondering, “What if?” This, combined with his realistic, engaging characters, really makes The Lost Prince is deliciously complex. Lazellari keeps things interesting, and the ending is a perfect culmination of adventure, action, and growth. Furthermore, his blend of answer ...more
I've always liked books that remind me in some way or ways of other books I've enjoyed in the past. The Lost Prince definitely reminds me of some of my favorite fantasy, but is different enough so it doesn't feel derivative of any particular book or series.

It's almost a cliche to say that book X is the love child of books A & B, but that doesn't do this justice. I think of this as more of a witches' brew of the Harry Dresden books, high fantasy like A. Merritt & Stephen R. Donaldson, com

Fun. Fast. Fresh and well paced. Like "Awakenings", Mr. Lazellari commanded the structure and the multitude of characters in this superior sequel. Can't like this enough.
Brian Palmer
I thought it took the promise of the first novel and took it a step up. This takes seriously the premise of a group from a fantasy universe that entered our world, fleeing a military invasion of their kingdom. Time passes differently there than here -- here, 13 years have passed, while things have barely changed back home. And although misadventures have passed where they need to reunite with the now teenaged prince the party ostensibly serves, they have 13 years of life here to confront. Is the ...more
Saving a missing prince from an alternate universe using swords, magic, modern weapons and technology, I loved it and can't wait to read the next book in this exciting crossover fantasy series!

In The Lost Prince, the race to save the Kingdom of Aandor, which has been invaded by the war-happy nation of Farrenheil, continues. The only way for Callum MacDonnell to do so is to find his prince and keep him safe. Thirteen years ago, the infant prince Danel, along with a company of protectors, was sent to this realm in the hopes that he could be protected and raised up to take back his kingdom. However, danger followed closely behind. Farrenheil’s had its own company sent out with a strong w ...more
I read the first book in the series, but was irritated by having a main character who was a centaur wandering around New York City. I don't understand why,because obviously the book is a fantasy, but it did. I was also annoyed by the repetitive snide remarks against conservatives and Republicans. I get it, Lazellari, you don't like conservatives, but it was too much. I read fantasy precisely to get away from politics. Finally, after making it 270 pages into the Nook version of this book, one fin ...more
I'm torn about this one. The story is excellent, the battle scenes are top-notch, and I really like the character growth.

But the only scene I remember well about this one is a torture scene that was gruesome enough that I don't think I'll be following this series. We'll see if time changes my mind (it's been just three days since I finished the book).
Rebecca Hughes
I received a copy of this book in the goodreads giveaways. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the story very much of the young boy being hunted and trying to be saved by his guardians of another universe. Action packed and really keeps the reader wondering what is going to happen next.
Cf Cooper
This is a terrific follow-up to Lazellari's AWAKENINGS. Stay with it as it builds, because the payoff is satisfyingly spectacular, in a very cinematic way. Both books are fun reads, but this one has a more satisfying conclusion (even though there's a third book yet to come; looking forward to it!)
Good concept, decent writing, interesting characters, but unlike what the author claims on his blog ( this is NOT a fried Oreo. (maybe a plain one) I'm waiting for the third volume in the series.
Jacklynn Sizemore
This book gets you and you just can't put it down. It's differ form anything that I have read this year!! I love that it has witches and wizards and other great things in this book!!!
Peter Fiske
Great fantasy! Enjoyed immensely & very hard to put down. I think it's even better it's predecessor Awakenings. I will be waiting for
Lazellari's next book.
Sol Rose
Excellent follow up to Awakenings. Plot was well developed and there is excellent interplay between the characters. Can't wait for the sequel!
Carlos Jr.
Ok this quickly grabbed my attention. Beautiful cover and mouth watering description. Two thumbs up.
Way better than the first book (which I liked). Better ending. Can't wait for book 3.
Bree Taylor
More of the same from the first book. Characters that I don't really care about. Silly side plots that don't seem to have a point. The redemption of Seth was the only bright spot in the whole book.
Kate Tate
This book was extremely well written. The characters are highly easy to compare to real people, making them far more realistic than I imagined. The story line was in-a-way predictable, but in no way ordinary. I found the whole book together extremely good. I give this book five stars and a great expression for anyone who enjoys a good action-packed adventure.
I thought the first book was just ok, was going to give this one a chance because there were somethings I wanted to know. However as I read I encountered some of the same issues as the first book. It is very slow moving and the constant changing pov makes it hard to keep my attention. After 75 pages I don't care to keep reading through the rest to find out what is going on. In the end this one just isn't for me.
