The Hamelin Stoop series continues in this second book of the series as Hamelin goes back to the site of his failure and tries again. An adventure ensues and new characters are introduced. Hamelin makes two new friends, Lars and Eraina, and goes off on dangerous quests, aided by The Great Eagle and another helper, The Hospitable Woman, Sue Ammi.

There are many life lessons in this story. You should try again when you fail, and you can be forgiven when you fall. Second chances are sometimes more

I was so excited to be able to read book 2 in this series nearly immediately after reading the first book. This second book did not disappoint. My husband requested that I buy 2 copies so that we could read it at the same time, and it was so worth it. This fantasy has all the elements of a good book. I love the characters and the fast pace. 99.9% of this novel occurs in the other world of the setting. The author obviously had fun creating the world, and I had fun reading it. I don't want to give ...more
Once again I was lost in the Land of Gloaming, where Hamelin Stoop is now called on to help two friends even as he yearns to find his parents. What I liked about this story is that Eliana and Lars were just as important in the story and that all the threads of the different stories are starting to weave together. The story is not yet complete as there is still the third book, but you're starting to see how Hamelin's origins and his life in the orphanage are all connected. I liked that each of th ...more

I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first one!! I finished it one night! I was so tired the next day but hey a book like that is well worth the read don't ya think? I know that fans of Harry Potter will love this series. I know I am so far. The characters are realistic and the plot is pretty far fetched but hey, that is what fantasy is all about right?
I think that author of this book had fun creating the other world almost as much as the Texas setting in the first book!! Well done Robert!

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

This story starts where it left of in the first book. In the first book was more excitement and here and there a bit of action. This second book has a lot of action and the title describes exactly what adventures Hamelin is going to go on.

This is an excellent, warm fuzzy adventure that you dream about going in summer times. This world of Gloaming is so colorful and exciting, the Land of Gloaming, the mountains,

I loved this book more than the first one. It read almost like an allegory, as though I was back in the middle of Pilgrim's Progress, but simultaneously, it felt very real like the Pevensie's adventures in Narnia. In the previous book, Hamelin had failed to do what he needed to when he was eight. He was afraid. He was young. It was understandable. But it was still a failure. This time, Hamelin has decided that fear will not get the best of him.

And so, three and a half years later, a little older

I really enjoyed this book it is the second book in the series about Hamelin Stoop. The world this book takes place in Texas and the other world. The author has taken lots of time developing the world and it is a good read. I cannot wait for the story to move forward in the next book. I am not a fan of fantasy but I really did enjoy this series. Hamlin Stoop enters the world of Gloaming with a war being waged between 3 brothers and the chosen one. Hamlin is searching for his parents. I know some ...more

He goes back to the cave. And makes some friends. A young woman looking for her sister. A young man looking for the jewel of his country to save them from being destroyed. In order for any of the goals to be met they MUST stick together - - with the gifts they are given - a magical pair of gloves, a shawl that allows her to see far away and a sword that is invisible . .. stick together and win - split up and die . . .

Hamelin Stoop has quickly become one of our favorite new series. The author crafts these incredible worlds where the reader feels as if he’s in an Indiana Jones movie. My kids loved reading this book and we’re anxiously awaiting the next installment!

I cracked open Hamelin Stoop: The Lost Princess and the Jewel of Periluna with a ton of enthusiasm and hopefulness. I enjoyed book one and was ready to dive into book two and find out how the story continues. 

What I liked:

This is my favorite Hamelin Stoop book so far! 

I liked meeting new characters and seeing the story develop deeper than I initially expected. Hamelin meets new friends and goes on exciting adventures to help them. I liked the use of magical items and how the friends work togethe
