Once again Sabastian Darke, the half elf, ventures forth to make his fortune; this time into the deepest jungles in search of a lost city. Peril seems to stalk our one time jester and his diminutive warrior companion, Cornelius, down any path they follow or, in this case, hack into being with a machete. The presence of danger is almost as interminable as the pessimistic witticisms of the third member of their trio, Max, the sentient buffalope.

Well, this is it for the Sebastian Darke series. I really enjoyed it! Each book had a new adventure that was pretty different from the last. This one had the twist of the supernatural with zombie-like creatures called Night Runners, so that was neat. And even though I was sad about it, I was happy there wasn't entirely a happy ending for all the characters. I always appreciate when authors do that.

Philip Caveney is a fantastic writer. The books are easy to read and engaging, an

lucu dan konyol...

di sini si Prince of fools resmi berpredikat prince of explorer.

Berkat Aaron, Sebastian tahu bahwa pelawak sejati haruslah bisa melawak di depan anak-anak. Dan, dia berhasil.

Tapi, walaupun pada akhirnya Sebastian bisa berhasil dengan pertunjukan lawaknya di depan anak-anak, dan menikmati kekayaannya, Sebastian merindukan petualangan. Dan akhirnya, mereka bertiga, bersama Max dan Cornelius, ikut Cornelius pulang kampung ke Golmira ....

Sabastian Darke: Prince of Explorers was very disappointing. It is basically a really bad rip-off of I Am Legend mixed with a boring, annoying, depressing storyline that was already going downhill by the second book. I was hoping that the author would redeem himself in this book and fix the storyline but I was wrong. Not only did it not get better, this book got infinitely WORSE. I was not impressed.

Well, our hapless jester is off on another adventure, this time to uncover pirate treasure. The peril and humor blend well in this volume. Tangled in with the complexities of the plot is Sebastian's romance with a seafaring lass, while trying to free himself from a love enchantment with a willowy witch. THis isn't the strongest fantasy fiction I've run across but it is a fun diversion.

This book was awesome and is perfect for people who love a sense of adventure.
It is about a young elfling and his friends as they go through death trauma and fights with the impossible.
Reccomend to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This book finishes off the trilogy well. Not too different from the first two, constructionwise: Seb's complicated relationship(s), Moaning Max, small number of characters, et cetera. Not much character development, but the plotline is excellent if a bit predictable in places.

Great series, for clean and good old fashioned adventure fun. Excellent to see the illustrator Julek Heller once again.
