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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Of all the types of worlds that people prosper on, why does it have to be one that is just… I don’t know.. Water? No land, just water.

Bobby Pendragon must follow Saint Dane into Cloral, to defend it, along with his Uncle Press. He must first learn about the territory, and find out what is going on here. All is peaceful though, on the great “habitat” known as Grallion. It is responsible for growing food. There isn’t enough food to go around, so scientists, guided by Saint Dane, are encouraged to

This book was just as good as the last, maybe even better. It takes place, instead, of a planet called Cloral which has absolutely no land, just water. Bobby and his Uncle Press have to make it through the floating cities to find Saint Dane, who wants to destroy everything. I liked the idea of how everything is underwater, which makes the story even better. Then, in the middle of the story: plot twist, it turns out the legend of Faar told by Spader's dead father is actually true! Personally I th ...more

The Lost City Of Faar

After reading the novel, The Lost City of Faar by D.J. MacHale I personally think it depends on the kind of reader you are and what your interests are about books for you to read this. First off I believe that this book would be the perfect book for any reader who around late middle school early high school years. Why? Because many kids around that age have crazy imaginations and this book has a great fiction plot. I agree with A

This second book was definitely better than the first, but the beginning was rooooough.

We last left Bobby as he and his Uncle Press had just saved the territory of Denduron from plunging into chaos and watched as their arch nemesis ran off to another territory to presumably wreak havoc there. Sure enough, they follow him to Cloral -- a territory completely under water. The inhabitants live on habitats that are basically like giant floating cities.

In many respects, it's

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

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

The trouble with reading books meant for a (slightly) younger audience is that you, as a (slightly) older reader get reminded of the age gap every now and then; through teen trends, phrases, emotions etc. In short, for some YA or Children's literature, you really feel like that book is only meant to be read specifically by its intended demographic.

But with MacHale's Pendragon, the age gap is either nonexistent, unnoticeable or reconcilable. As a reader outside of the intended age bracket, you ca

This one has always been one of my favorites in the series simply because I love the Territory of Cloral and I enjoy the introduction of the newest traveler, Spader. The ending of this always kills me but it's such a good story. Can't wait to get on with the series!
