I really did not like The Lost Queen. It was boring, poorly written, and had awful characters. Tania is a naïve brat that takes everything for granted. She uses and manipulates her parents. To Tania they are only a road block to her getting what she wants. I have a hard time believing that she loves them. They have arguments a lot which is understandable. Tania just abuses their trust again and again even when her parents are nothing but understanding. She told them she left the country for her ...more

The characters in this book were okay, and the first few chapters weren't horrendous, but I hit about page 37 and the plot fell apart for me. It felt contrived, more like the author was pushing the character to do things, than the character would have been likely to do those things. I just couldn't stick with the story. It's a rare thing for me not to finish a book, but there are just too many other books I want to read right now to force myself to finish one that isn't holding my attention. May ...more

Can you say drama much???
The Lost Queen was a boring, inconsistent, and overly dramatic novel with little plot and annoying characters.
That said, there were a few (few!) humerous scenes. Edric was actually likeable, and I liked learning a bit about how Queen Titania spent her 500 or whatever years. I also found Tania's flashbacks interesting. Jade was a funny friend.
The continual drama, though, just got on my nerves to no end. Tania goes on and on and on how she hates lying to her parents...

I liked this book better than the first book, mainly for the last half of the book where there's more action. The story is solid and more engaging than the first book, but I still find myself asking these questions; how is it possible she's this stupid? Seriously you can freaking disappear into thin air....pretty sure if you just show your parents you'll prove you aren't a crazy person. Second, where are all of the cops? There are crazy horse demon things causing lots of destruction and noise... ...more

After finally realizing that she was Princess from the Realm of Faerie, Princess Tania (Anita Palmer) went back to London in search of their mother, Queen Titania. The gift of being able to walk between worlds allowed Tania to search for the Queen and still be a part of some of the festivities that the Realm of Faerie has, until one night, all of a sudden she is no longer able to make the pass back to Faerie. Surprising her even more, three of her Princess sisters suddenly appear in her Mortal W ...more

i absoultely loved this book! it's fill with adventures and fantasy, it actually the best fairy book i ever read, but the way they spelled fairy is different, it's spelled faerie. This books has very nice details in every way. this books was very great but in the book for me, Tania was soft of stubborn, but it's good at the same time because she's explained as her normal teenaged self. i thought that when they find the queen they would be more suprised or something would happen but nothing reall ...more

This was an ok book. I like serials (obviously, if you look at my bookshelves!) but I normally like serials that can stand on their own as books - there are exceptions to that - but usually those books are so full of action or other things that move a plot along. This book was really just filler between the previous and the next. What little plot movement there was could have been accomplished in about 20 pages. I will read the next one because I would love to see what happens in Faerie and to s ...more

I honestly don't think that I should be doing a review on this novel, because it was just that bad.  I don't like doing reviews on novels that didn't like, because it never really turns out well.  This was a very boring novel to read and I found the plot to be utterly ridiculous. I couldn't stay focused to actually read this novel and it got so bad that I had to quit reading halfway through.  Which I never do, I almost never stop reading a novel once I've started it.  This is because novels have ...more

Jones, Frewin. 2007. The Lost Queen. (Book Two of the Faerie Path.

In The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones, we met a young teen girl, 15-almost-16, named Anita who at the beginning seemed quite ordinary.

From my first review: But on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, something big happens that changes everything. It all starts with a boat accident. It ends with several missing teenagers that disappeared from the hospital. Anita transformed, if you will, into Tania on her sixteenth birthday. She is the

Me thinks that this was a pretty okay book... I mean, I'm not going to be able to buy or borrow the books later on in the series. I prefer a book that can span more time than just a week or less.

Much like its predecessor, this book keeps the main character (Tania) between the two worlds, except that there is an emphasis on which of the two she'll end up accepting. Beyond that point, we learn more about her past lives (and there will probably be more on those in the later novels) and... well, who

Premise- (3/5) The first book in this series appealed to my fantasy loving, fairy loving self, and was nothing astounding, but not outright bad either. In this second book, Tania's goal is to find her Faerie mother, Titania, in the Mortal World.
Characters- (2/5) I don't find any of the characters in this series especially compelling. I don't have anything against Tania (except that she has red hair and green eyes--*sigh*), but she's not super intriguing. The same goes for her parents (both sets

I have read this whole series about two years ago and loved it (except for the last one) and I am re-reading the whole series and will be reviewing the whole series as I read it. This is the second book and Tania and Edric have been tasked with finding the lost queen, Titania. She is lost some where in the mortal world. So, they go back to the mortal realm and stuff happens.

What I really love about this whole series is that Tania's mortal parents are there. When she went into the faerie realm

First, let me get you caught up a bit. In the first book of this series, The Faerie Path, Anita learned that she was the missing Princess Tania in the faerie world. This time around, she is searching for her missing mother, Queen Titania. Anita is able to move back-and-forth between the mortal world and the faerie world. Nice.

There were three aspects of The Lost Queen that stood out to me.

First, Tania came around and embraced her inner princess. She became so attached to the new faerie wor

I really don't know how I feel about this book - or the series as a whole, for that matter. On one hand, it's sweet and naive and has a unique story. But on the other hand, it's very naive, especially for a young adult audience, and the story doesn't seem quite there. The characters, especially Tania's sisters, seem too good. They never fight and it appears that the only one who ever does anything wrong is Rathina, whom they've all decided is bad. I feel like there is something to be desired in ...more

The first book "The Faerie Path" was one I was expecting to love off the bat. It was enjoyable, different from the genres I mostly go towards. Definitely fun. I loved Tania and all her sisters. Each had their own personality and I enjoyed each one differently. I was looking forward to getting back to the characters in the "Lost Queen".
