3.5 stars. I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first one which I gave 4 stars.
The writing in this one felt different and choppy. There were times when I felt several things were just repeated over and over.
I did really like seeing Vin and Naz as their human forms. It was so weird to think of them having human forms since they were bears the whole first book. I wanted to live with them in their village.
I liked how there were a few things that happened in the first book that seemed trivial

Lost Lands is the second part of the Changing Times series by Shaun L. Griffiths. The story picks up where the first book left off, pulling the reader deeper into the ancient world of shifters. It continues in the land of Hounds, where the Clan of Mountain Lions escaped from the deathly rampage of Apes in their home land.

In this book we learn more about the magical and powerful Crystal that was introduced in the first book. Also we learn more background stories about these magical lands of shift

An entertaining, fast paced YA fantasy adventure with some brilliant world building.
I haven't read the first book in the series and I was a little confused in the early chapters. However once I got into the book and was able piece things together it turned into an intriguing and imaginative read. With a satisfying ending the book can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend reading the first book. I certainly will be looking out for part three of this epic adventure.

An enjoyable quest through dangerous lands

Being a sucker for a good fantasy quest, I greatly enjoyed this novel. The character relationships continue to develop and there is a nice sense of world building as information about the bigger picture emerges. The main characters were engaging and I particularly enjoyed the camaraderie between the snow bears. I look forward to reading the third volume.

I wanted to score this book 4&1/2 stars, so rounded it up!
Lost Lands is the second part of the epic adventure created by Shaun Griffiths. It has a 'Narnia' style appeal as children and young adults cross in and out of different lands via magical gateways, shape shifting into animals forms in a quest to find the 'presumed dead' Holly. The struggle for power from an unseen evil force is tied up with a powerful crystal as the tale unfolds and darkens with storms, battles and a bid from 'Him' to

I devoured the book Lost Lands (Changing Times Book 2) by Shaun L Griffiths in one day. What a talented author! Even though it was book two, and I hadn’t read book one, I had no trouble entering into the world of this intriguing saga. It has great pacing and characterization. The writing style is suspenseful, always encouraging you to turn the next page as you wonder who or what the “evil” is that is always watching and listening.

The vivid descriptions make you feel as if you are right there whe

Written by Shaun L. Griffiths, the Lost Lands is one of the best books anyone could ask for. If you like a heartfelt and action packed story in an intriguing world filled with the most wondrous characters, then this is it. This may be the second book in the series, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it even though I’ve not read a single page of book 1.

Each scene is taken up from a different character’s point of view, there were a few times I had to step back for a millisecond to catch that th

An engaging and expertly crafted epic adventure.

I opened this book on the recommendation of a friend despite it being well outside my normal read, and was delighted that I did.
Shaun Griffiths is a skilled and intelligent author, and soon had me pulled into the story, and the intertwined lives of the many well-developed characters. I hadn’t read the first book of the trilogy, Changing Times, but Lost Lands reads as a solid, stand-alone novel in its own right.
It’s the epic struggle of good versu

This is an entertaining fantasy adventure that pits good against evil to possess a crystal that promises the ultimate power. It’s well-written throughout with vivid, believable characters and some great relationships, such as the two snow bears that help Carter on his quest. The straightforward plot builds tension and suspense as the danger increases towards the final battle.

I haven't read the first book, but had no trouble picking up the story, set in a well created and described world. I enjoy

A wonderful fantasy story with were creatures united to fight a common enemy. The development of the universe was excellent, making one thoroughly enjoy the journey. It is full of action and is well paced, but not too distracting. A great sequel to book 1. Recommended for lovers of fantasy and adventure.
