Okay, it's official. I am now fully hooked on the Pendragon series.

Bobby Pendragon, fourteen-year-old new and confused Traveler of space and time, is headed to his next territory. This time, it's Cloral, a water territory where dry land is unheard of and the people have discovered all kinds of cool ways to use and overcome their aquatic surroundings.

But Cloral is also at a tipping point, thanks to the evil Traveler Saint Dane, who seems to have a diabolical plan for destroying Cloral's peace an...more

A Book Review By: Chase Pixley
Prepare for another surprising and dramatic journey through Halla with Bobby Pendragon!
The second book in the series tells about what happens after Bobby’s win over Saint Dane on the territory of Denduron. “Malos” (AKA Saint Dane) escaped to a territory called Cloral. This oceanic territory has no land and is the home of Vo Spader, an Aquaneer (think life guard/police officer) and traveler. There is only one problem th...more

I really, really enjoyed this book. In many ways more so than the first. Bobby is much more mature than he is in the first adventure and he seems to have accepted that he is a Traveler and "that is the way things are meant to be." The story was very well-paced, and I was actually bummed when the writer went back to discuss how things were going on Second Earth. I will say this though...I hate Andy Mitchell. I mean truly I can't stand that annoying kid. For a writer to have me display this much e...more

Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon is not like other boys his age. His uncle Press is a Traveler, and, as Bobby has learned, that means Uncle Press is responsible, through his journeys, for solving interdimensional conflict wherever he encounters it. His mission is nothing less than to save the universe from ultimate evil. And he’s taking Bobby along for the ride.
Fresh from his first adventure on Denduron, Bobby finds himself in the territory of Cloral, a vast world that is entirely cove...more

The Lost City of Faar picks up with Bobby's second adventure thwarting the evil Saint Dane, whose goal is to destroy all worlds and all times. This time he journeys to the water world Chloral, where he teams up with a local named Spader and his Uncle Press. Together, they must identify the turning point Saint Dane will attempt to exploit and counter his attempt to throw this world into chaos. This book is the sequil to the first Pendragon book. In this book Bobby Pendragon has traveled to a slig...more

So it was a three right up until the very end. Fantastic but annoying.

Bobby talks way too much. The book could be half the size if he'd just cut down on the endless commenting. I also didn't enjoy Spader that much, and I felt like Bobby was telling me to like him because of what the character was supposed to be, rather than just showing me his awesomeness. Which, he wasn't. The world is a good idea, but it wasn't, I dunno, random enough. It could've been way more out there. And the plot was pret...more

Pendragon on his second adventure is still an oddity. He has been trained from early childhood to be a Traveler, hopping between worlds via a gate similar to the Stargate familiar to television viewers. Now, he has reached the ripe old age of 14, and is being thrust into the role without being fully ready.

In the first adventure, he was about 14 and a half, and this adventure picks up shortly after. He is traveling to a water world this time, and finds it to be nearly a paradise. The description...more

This book is the second in the series about Bobby Pendragon, who is a "Traveler" that goes to different territories (basically other worlds) and saves them from the brink of disaster. I love the sci-fi elements of the book. The Territory that Bobby travels to in this book, Cloral, is awesome. I love hearing about all the adventures Bobby goes on and the other worlds. The Bobby storylines are very engaging and exciting.

What REALLY drags this book down in the side storyline that takes place in Bob...more

I started reading this with high hopes and I was not let down. Press and Bobby have parted ways with fellow traveler Loor, a strange decision since Bobby is a terrible fighter and Loor is a warrior. Off they go to the territory of Cloral, which all we know about as readers is that it has some huge sharks as its quigs. We're dragged back into the adventure, and plunged into it full force. Literally. We're taken from a land where it was considered normal to walk and interact on land, and suddenly...more

The Lost City of Faar is the second book in the Pendragon series. It follows Bobby Pendragon, a time traveler of the mythical universe Halla.
After the events of the first book, Bobby returns home from Denduron, a world in Halla, to find his house, family, and records gone. He has no. choice but to return to Halla with his uncle Press and help another world from the clutches of the evil St. Dane, also a traveler. This time, he must go to a planet dominated by water, Cloral. Cloral's citizens li...more

This book was a heck of a lot better than the first. At least that's what I thought. We pick off right where Bobby has finally woken up from his nap. He goes back to his house to find out that all there is, is an empty lot. There is no sign that Bobby had ever lived here. His family is gone and his home is gone. So now he is going with his Uncle Press to the territory of Cloral. Cloral is where Saint Dane has gone and now Press and Bobby are on their way there. When they reach they see that ther...more

A very strong sequel to the first book. This time round Bobby Pendragon is transported to a world where there is only water and his mission is to go on a quest and find the lost city of faar. Loor, one of the characters I like makes an appearance in the book. I was surprised when I read the first few pages and she was sent on another quest but she came back again towards the end of the book which was great.

Bobby meets a new character called Spader who is very cool and who goes through an interes...more

After Bobby found out that everything he ever knew was gone, he and his uncle Press decided to go to Cloral, a world that is entirely covered by water, to stop Saint Dane. When Uncle Press and Bobby arrive, they are chased by sharks but then are saved by a traveller named Vo Spader (who doesn't know that he's a traveller yet). Then a bunch of raiders come along with their leader Zy Roder (who is really Saint Dane in disguise) and threaten to destroy Grallion but Vo Spader goes and disables the e...more

Great pre-teen to teen series. I wouldn't be surprised if the author was Mormon. It's about this kid who's Uncle is a traveler and takes him to another world to save it from the St. Dane who is hell bent on making war on each of the planets. Each book takes place on a different planet. It's very fun and entertaining. All about sticking to your values to achieve good.

"Pendragon The Lost City of Faar" by D.J. Machale was great because it was adventurous and mysterious. I kept reading because there was an underwater war between his enemy Saint Dane. The author was awesome at making it interesting because when Bobby and his Uncle were in a ship, somehow the passengers died. For example,"The aquaneer crew from Magorran was there was well. There was a pilot, the first mate, and three other aquaneers. I recognized their rank because they wore the same uniforms as...more

i would sacrifice my curly locks of hair and bushy eyebrows to be a Faarian. this book was better than the first. the end.

A masterful follow-up to The Merchant of Death, we are introduced to even more fun characters (Spader) and even more heartbreak. Bobby is coming into his own as he realizes his eventual destiny is to lead the Travelers in the fight against St. Dane. Teens and adults alike will enjoy the contest of wills between Bobby and the Traveler from Cloral. As always, when the book ends, the reader is left anxious for the next book in the series.

I thought that this book is really a good read that will entertain you the whole way. It really brought out some of the characteristics of the characters from the first book in the series. It showed how quickly someone can change and seemed very realistic (in the characters not the setting). It really takes many twists and turns that keep anyone who ever read the first page hooked in. This book really makes you want to keep reading this series, the way that the story is just can't be left hangin...more

I recently read the first book in this series, and while there were many things I found problematic, I did enjoy it very much.

So I read this book about...4 weeks ago? And Im not going to give an excuse, but the turnout of the book didn't motivate me to write this review. I think as a Pendragon fan, I enjoyed it, but there were some things I didn't connect with that I connected with better with the original. Why dont I just highlight the pros and the cons.

What I liked:

I love the new character Vo...more

Another great book in this series! I am enjoying these so much. Great all-around writing, compelling characters, a twisting plot, and wonderfully imaginative world-building. One of the things I appreciate most about this author is that when he describes a scene on an alien world, I can really picture it! He describes it in a few choice words, and a clear picture forms in my head. Even if it is something totally weird and unreal, the writing is clear and concise.
(There are a couple of rude words,...more

This book is the sequil to the first Pendragon book. In this book Bobby Pendragon has traveled to a slightly futaristic world where they have learned to concentrate water into solid objects. The entire world is water terrain. He cannot travel with his friends from the previous world because the only one he made that could come could not swim.
In this world the man who tried to destroy the previous one was there as well engaging him in yet another battle. He makes even more friends and has a gr...more

Although I reluctantly read the Pendragon book 1 and being that this series isn't meant for my age group, ie., i'm around 19 now and these books are really meant for much younger age group but i recently got the whole series so i wasn't going to let it go waste but #2 The Lost City of Faar was much more interesting than the first one.........seeing as I only took one day to finish the whole book.

Here is how the book summary goes like:

MacHale delivered once more with his continuation of Pendragon's adventures as a Traveler. The writing style was far more developed and he was able to deeper indulge into identifying particular quality traits of each character.

Though, I will say I have changed allegiances from Mark to Courtney. In this book MacHale's writing of Mark make it clear that while he is a loyal friend and a lovable nerd but, he's got no backbone whatsoever and Courtney has to constantly bail him out of trouble.
